  1. It appears I found the KapelMuur tough in 2011. 🤣
  2. Alan, I seem to remember this is how it finished at the top!!
  3. Ha ha! Great day out. 6 Wheelers in shot. I think I was wondering how long my domestique could keep going!
  4. Frank. Good to hear you are back. Hopefully catch up with you on the road soon. R
  5. Thanks both. We will start doing a bit more research this weekend and maybe ask a few questions. Cheers, R
  6. Martin, we will probably stay the Sunday night as well....so we can have a beer or two! 🍻
  7. Thanks Iain. We’re going to look into sapping our entry to the 174km. I know the curse has changed, but when I did it back in 2011 the first 50miles were dull and flat!
  8. I was busy doing things, so have been entered for the full distance by Mrs M....although may see if I can amend, as I'm not sure that I can do that much without my knees falling off! Hopefully have a campervan by then, so will be staying in that....somewhere! Where are you guys staying and what distance are you doing?
  9. Anyone got any tips for a good place to be based for a weeks cycling in Tenerife? We’ve never been before, so any advice appreciated. Cheers, R
  10. Elaine & I have entered the Flanders sportive on 4th April 2020. Any other Wheelers going?
  11. Ironically I punctured on the way there.....in the pouring rain!!
  12. Chung, You are a gent. Thank you. I'll whip the lever off and take it with me when I'm in Glasgow on Thursday. Cheers, R
  13. Ta. Wondering if it is maybe time for a new bike!?!? It is 12 years old and was about to buy new forks anyway.....will speak to Mrs M!
  14. Chung & Martin, Thanks guys. Levers are Chorus. I have pulled a few old sets of levers apart in the past and found what the problem was (worn plastic “teeth”) and just bought new levers. Will mail them and give one of them a go. Cheers, R
  15. Anyone have a 10 speed campag right hand side shift/brake lever kicking around that needs a new home? The indexing on mine is starting to go, so could do with a new one. Cheers, R
  16. All well in a hot and sunny Netherlands......although team JWCC may need some map reading practice!
  17. They’re off. Cool start, but sunny and forecast for 23 degrees! Happy days!
  18. Caught me standing by the sign at the top of the Tourmalet.....and covering my face for some reason!
  19. looking great Chung. How does it ride?....or is it just for show?
  20. Hi all, A friend of mine is looking to sell his 2017 Giant Trinity Advanced Pro TT bike. Spec is as follows: · Giant Trinity Advance Pro TT bike (2017) · Size Large (see here for geometry) · SRAM eTap red aero TT groupset · 172.5mm cranks · 11-28 cassette · FSA powerbox (power crankset) Photos below (wheels not included). It has basically hardly ever been used at all, so is like new. It cost him around £4k new excluding wheels, so would be looking for good sensible offers given it's condition/use. Let me know if you are keen and I can put you in touch with him. (He lives the other side of Edinburgh, but that’s not too far away). Cheers, Ramsay
  21. Chung, do you have pictures of the finished bike?
  22. Did the role of flapjack delivery boy today and got a wee spin out (not on the track as it was too icy). Good to have a chat with some familiar and new faces at the club rooms. Stuart, I have your keys. I’ll PM you for getting them back. R
  23. Elaine got in, so we have just booked on the Newcastle to Amsterdam ferry on the Thursday (18th), returning on the Monday (22nd). Currently have 3 nights booked in Valkenburg, but may spend the Friday night somewhere else on route. Happy days! R
