mmmm been a colourful day today to say the least.

Thought I would take the Cannondale out with a hired trailer for the kids
ahead of next weekends Blacks ride.

Tyres looked a little flat,so thought I would pump them off and promptly snapped the end of the presta valve off ! No problems ,brought another one at the cycle centre ( how long are modern valves ???? )

So then hired the trailer, went to fit it and noticed the cones had all come loose on the back wheel looked as if it was about to fall apart !, took it to the workshop and they repaired it there and then.

Then after a nice ride around the family trail, peeled off to the Rising Sun for a well deserved pint , up the rise, got out the saddle and BANG ! chain snapped.
Quick pint of Stowfords press and a pub side repair headed back.

Funny how everything appears to fall apart at the same time :evil:
