Went on another training London to Brighton ride again. Bloody aweful!!! Every hill nearly killed me. Ditchling Beacon was just impossible. Even walking it was devastatingly hard :oops:

Total time 4.30 :roll: Just before Xmas I did it in just under 4.00, and cycled all the way up Ditchling Beacon non stop....

I think the Xmas excess has taken its toll somewhat.

Having serious concerns about HoTA now

Glad you're OK!

Gonna take more a quick tweak with a spoke key to get that running true. :-)

I guess the Slingshot structure probably has a benefit "resisting" that type of fore/aft impact.
