  1. Road Bike for Sale - Small - £600 I recently built up a road bike, with a mixture of new and used parts, which has been used once and is now surplus to requirements due to ongoing medical issues which will restrict my cycling for the forseeable future. The build is as follows : Frame Dolan L’Etape – new, carbon, small (52cm) Shifters Shimano 105 – used, 11sp Mechs Shimano 105 – used Brakes Shimano 105 - used Chainset Shimano Tiagra – new, 50/34 Wheels Handbuilt at Q-Bikes : Hubs - Hope RS Mono – used Rims - Mavic Open Pro Tubeless - new Tyres - Conti GP 5000 TL – new, set up tubeless Bars Easton – 38cm, new Stem Deda – new Seatpost Alpina – new Saddle Fabric Scoop – used The bike is available to be seen in Paisley. Contact me to arrange a visit.
  2. I built up this bike back in 2018 with the intention of using it as a fixed-gear for winter training. My good intentions never came to fruition and I added an 18-tooth freewheel to get more use out of the bike after realising that living at the top of a hill was not compatible with riding fixed. It was tough getitng up there, but getting down was even worse as my legs couldn't keep up with the pedals. So the bike has done less than 200 miles since being built, and needs to go to a good home. The parts as listed below cost just under £400 from Planet-X. I'll be happy to accept £200 ono.

  3. Not only wet, but pretty windy as well. Looks like a long lie beckons.
  4. I'll be in Liverpool, rather than spearheading the 8:30 superslow group.
  5. I won't be out for the next 2 or 3 weeks either. Looks like the weather is going to be a bit problematic tomorrow anyway.
  6. Good run today - but it showed up just how much fitness has been lost. Thanks to Dave and Mitch for waiting at the top of every incline, and to Mitch for the coffee and scone at the cafe.
  7. I'll not be out tomorrow - fortunately (as it's going to be very cold) we have an important early lunch date in the far east (of Glasgow).
  8. Lovely run today. Thanks to Alan for the navigation and to everybody else keeping the pace manageable for me.
  9. I'm going to try to make it. Not been out with the group for a while. Don't wait, though, if I'm not there on time.
  10. I'll be trying to make it if the weather's not too bad.
