Until I got to the cut that is. My Ridgeback was gleaming, my kit was spotless, then canal; towpath that was muddy, icy, and generally very wet. I was quite surprised, ok, we'd had a bit of snow yesterday but on the whole it has been a dry weekend. Ish. After the travails of the rear wheel on Saturday I now have an alarming creaking and cracking noise coming from my front wheel. I suspect the hub. I hope not. Those wheels have seen sterling service having been handbuilt for me 20 odd years ago at the now defunct "On yer bike" in Solihull. Maybe their time is approching.
I hope the computer for the road bike appears soon as I want to fit it and try Giant on the commute through the City Centre, I am very interested to see what effect it has on time. Also after making one or two slight adjustments on Saturday I'm keen to see if I will be comfortable on it. I'm not really counting the 5 miles I did on it last Wednesday when I picked it up. The Brooks saddle wasn't on it, also the bars were a tad low and the seat post a tad high. Not hugely so but enough to need a tweak. We all know what a difference a couple of mm make to your comfort while riding.
It's now March, that's Spring in my book, so why have we had frost this morning and heavy snow is forecast for Friday? I am fast approching not seeing the humour in the situation!
