Stuff that made me happy today.
Finally have matching training wheels on my track bike! Took me so long to get the front fixed after someone put their foot in it while racing.
Morning coffee hangs with Wade the weiner dog.
The best part about racing last night was the ride there with @kitchristopher The next best parts were the Dr Pepper and jellybeans.
50km Australasian points score.
Had a pretty average night on the bike, dead legs and I’m really missing that top end I had last year. Bad gear choice didn’t help things either, that said it was great getting to race with everyone who turned up. Time to do less road and get the track legs back.
Tonight will be my last track session before racing the 50km Australasian points champs this Thursday, I’m full of nerves and excitement.
Missing my old Cinelli, really need to get another track bike built up so I have something to ride to the supermarket.
Recovery days! Skateboard supermarket trips and slow rides down to Williamstown.
New road bike got some love today.
New bars, cables re done and BB30 to gxp adapter installed! Happy to have my power meter back.
Time for some new chainrings, standard 53/39 for road and a 48t for track (my most used chainring for racing). These were generously given to me by Dan who owns and runs Bespoke chainrings.
Anyone who has met Dan will know that he is quite critical on components and how they perform so I have no doubts that these will be super high quality.
Once I’ve had a chance to use and abuse these I’ll give them a full review.
In the mean time you should check out his stuff over at Bespoke chainrings
Relaxing after a hard track session, I have missed these!
Reco day means a slow ride along Williamstown beach and a lot of sitting on the couch looking out of the skylight. Also, amazing weather considering we’re in winter right now!
