What I ride and why.....

Cuts Bianchi is the first in what should be a regular feature. More good stuff from the site.

We need yours now, as it says, what you ride and why you do? 1000-ish words and a picture. What you put is up to you.

Re: Cranked Up Really High

Experimented with various positions on the cleats today. Amazing how much a little difference can make. I fell off, well, fell over attached to the bike at the end of our street waiting for a guy to make a right turn. Pride hurt that's all. Happy to report after 25 miles no more pins and needles in my foot.

Another quickie, reckon they'll do the trick ultimately.
Lee Quarry tomorrow....on my own. Note to self, check phone signal on trails!

You can move about a bit with Eggbeaters? Never sure if that's a blessing or a curse? Mine need a strip and sort, bit 'clicky' at the mo

Just wondered if they were like Time pedals where you can move sideways in them? SPDs are pretty much fixed and that's it.

Re: Cranked Up Really High

Good work, enjoyed that. Sounds quite appealing that audaxing.

Re: Cranked Up Really High

Yes have ago. Really good. I plan on doing a three or four more 100K'ers , then a 200k'er by the end of the year. But they hold them everywhere & are dead cheap. 5 to 6 quid. I have been in touch with a bloke who runs one from where I live and he was moaning that they had put the price up from 50p to £2!

When you consider that some of the sportif's are 30 to 50quid, it is a no brainer for a tight cunt like me!

Re: Cranked Up Really High

Started to look for a second hand road bike on Bikeradar.

Found one, but it´s in Glasgow and i want to try it before buying, so probably won´t happen.
