under 600g for the frame, 4,4kg for the complete bike. Impressive:
If you like heavier bikes it seems like UCI is permitting disc brakes for road racing for the season 2017. Great news both for us riders and good time for all bike brands to come up with good disc brake bikes and Campagnolo to develop the worlds best disc brake :)
When racing on road just ends in a tragedy like this:
Kwiatkowski and Stybar crashed in the end of Milan – San Remo today and Kristoff got passed in the sprint.
This morning it wasn’t like that. I took the train to Tullinge and entered the first race of this year. A ”small” training race with many fast riders, also my first start in Men 30-39. The course was pretty fast with some technical sections. Pretty flat course but perfect to start with. Had been snowing a little and was cold so the conditions was really good too. No mud and super track.
The race started with I’m getting passed by a friend shouting ”Come on!”, I just laughed as I already was riding fast (if you ask my legs). The race was a bit mental, going full speed 1 lap and then knowing you should ride 4 more can be hard even if it’s so short. Rode with a guy behind me first lap, on the second lap he passed me on the climb and I followed him, like this:
In black with a bit of red today in Specialized clothes ;) Haven’t got new club clothes yet. The guy in front of me had a problem on the third lap a bit before this and I passed him. A little bit after a friend caught me that I managed to keep behind :D
Was riding alone until the end of last lap where another guy caught me and I missed we where in the same class. Let him by loosing a spot :(
So fun to race again and so much training needed my and a friend that gave me lift home talked about. Better to train than to change chainring for a smaller ;)
High end parts and low end tools doesn’t fit together. Not so fun ruin a part like a seatpost for 300€ just because you got cheap bad tools. Better to work with quality in both ways, it will both get easier to work, more fun and work better. That’s why when I had the chance order a set of Facom allen keys from BBtools:
Next tool on my want to have list is a cassettewrench from Abbey Tools. Beautiful and should be so nice to work with:
Sauser back in a Evade helmet (why changing between Prevail and Evade?) and Kulhavy seems to have no problems just push on ;) If you want to be as cool as Sauser and Kulhavy and help the people in South Africa, then you should buy a bike from them. Their special Cape Epic bikes will be auctioned out on Songo.info after the race. Seemed like a good day today for Specialized Racing:
and I used my new Oakleys on my way to and from work today. New Oakley Radarlock that I won earlier, works pretty good riding asphalt without prescription ;)
Now time to prepare for tomorrow. First race coming up :D:D
