Custom double chainset for customer 32-22 on new touring bike. Done.

Solving the noise that has been making an appearance on the cross bike for a while. Chainring bolt spacers - who'd have guessed.

A ride home, which was more an exploration than a commute.

Sunday brunch with the most beautiful girl in the world - who I definitely don't spend enough quality time with.

Fucking Flanders.

Woolly boob

It's funny what you talk about on rides. We had a lot of fun on the fountain's Audax on Sunday - not such much the usual, just a few friends enjoying beautiful surroundings. Then on an evening ride things went off in a whole other direction but still was a great ride.

Not even been touring.

Your tomorrows are losing time.

Who knows what we all think when no-one else is around. It's crazy to see ordinary folks turned into some kind of idols for actually having the motivation to get off their arse and complete a task. It's always the quiet ones. It's not right, this need to have the world accept you based on your preferences.
Concern yourself with what's going on in your own world.

A beautiful experience

Insider knowledge: we stopped and took in the view on the same bench that Chavenal is sitting on at the top of the Paterburg way back in October. I for one am looking forward to the new finish - can wait to see the Pro's big ringing up the same climbs we rode.

This Is It.

I've moved on a step. It feels right and I will give it 100% to make it a success. Got to get shit done, as they say.

“It is very easy to feel smaller, to feel less than, when you see people with an advantage walk where you struggle, who have ease of motion where you are constricted, it can be a real shot to your moral, like, it can be flummoxing to a degree where you’re almost paralytic. You’ve got to keep picking yourself up and reach for it. And that’s the long and short of it. ‘Cause if you don’t, it won’t get done.”

Big Change.

I have decisions to make.
I know what I'm going to do but my habit of running through every possible outcome to every possible choice is leaving me running out of headspace.

Whilst I'm thinking, do yourself a flavour and visit superouleur, Duncan knows what he's doing.

The Hope hub and Mavic Open Pro combination.
Custom touring bikes.
Two sets of Campag Record hubs coming in for building.
Riding to work.

Getting out and about.
Fittings and getting custom.
Loud music.
Laughing till crying.

Aging hipsters.
Proper fresh bagels.
Not listening to those people.
