Started the day with almost 2h cycling with David. Good weather, good company and nice roads like usual. And then work. In the afternoon checking how worn my chain was I found out that I punctured. A small puncture so pumped it up and rode home after word just losing a bar or a little more on the way home. A piece of glass in the tire. The funny thing with that is the ride today was the last on that tire. Will change it for a Challenge Grifo after today on the Carbomania front wheel. So the Continentaltire goes to the garbage Map & Graph for the ride here: TrainingPeaks Ulriken2
Coming home, finding a note in the mailbox that I have a package to collect. A new rim, not FFWD as they were very expensive, but a cheaper Planet X 20mm rim. So went collecting that and asked if they did got another package for me, they had and were kind so gave it to me. When I came home I had got this:
First then a Planet X 20mm Tubular rim. FFWD F2R says 270g, Planet X is:
And I got my new mtbframe. A Cannondale Scalpel with a DT Swiss damper. Older frame with Alu seat tube and 100mm travel. Lighter that expected including bottom bracket (49g) and headset (60g):
Also got new chainrings for my SuperX that I waited a while for. Experimental Prototype 38+50t chainrings for 130mm BCD. Is said to work well and the weight speaks for itself:
Also changed a part for a really cool set of tires. FMB Paris-Roubaix 27mm, the tires if you want to win Paris-Roubaix, Ronde van Vlaanderen or something like Tom Boonen and Fabian Cancellara. But as those riders aren’t the lightest the tires are not the lightest either:
Like Christmas today. For the frame was an 9g Token seatclamp too. So fun, so nice, so light.
