Hit 30 the other day, gave up the **** (as promised), spent my birthday cheque from my grandma on lovely shiny new bits and I'm back on the road (would rather be off the road but compared to Scotland, NORTH WEST ENGLAND SUCKS) !!!
In the two weeks since I fixed her up I have done 199.6 miles - I hope to do a 100 a week. The bits are as follows:
XT V-brakes, mechs and shifter/brake levers (front brakes are going SOON!)
SRAM PC-99 chain
RACEFACE Prodigy XC cranks
Shimano PD-M515 SPD pedals
X-Lite Click-On 7075 seatpost
Titec Berserkr Ti saddle (also going SOON)
X-Lite cross country bar
Dave Yates fillet brazed 'Columbus Chrom Or' MTB frame
Wheels, front is Mavic 517 on Hope Mono lightweight hub, rear is Mavic 517 on Shimano XT hub
Road tyres are IRC Metro 1.5" cheap semi-slicks.
Comp is a Cateye Cordless 2
I'm enjoying it alot so far but surprisingly, it's my legs that hurt the most, my lungs and heart seem absolutely fine ...
