Hi everyone. Well, I´ve had my Btwin Rockrider 5.4 for about 8 months now and I´ve been mainly using it to comute to work. 3.86 km there and another 3.60 to get back home. Lately, I have managed to take my interest in Formula 1 and kinda have some fun applying it to my bike route. For me, every km is a "sector" and the mobile app I have tells me if I´m behind or ahead of target time. These time trials are so much fun for me beacause everytime i beat my record (currently 8min 45sec for 3.86km to work) i figure out a way to chop some more time off the route somehow. I had a close call one time when i left the house with over inflated tyres. Surely, this improved my speed but at around the 3rd curve I skidded right at the apex and almost took a dive. So now i keep tyre pressure never over 80 psi.
At any rate, I dont consider myself an expert when it comes to bikes but I sure do have fun riding them..I hopeto learn a lot here. Thanx
