Well this week saw the arrival of a new crank, a Compact 50/34 Tiagra, got that fitted yesterday and wow, what an improvement on the hill this morning. First 8km in 40 minutes, (all up hill) not a single push.. but then had to cut short the ride due to a land slide... end of road for today...

I have ordered an HG51 11-28 cassette, should arrive by the end of the month, by which time the M324 pedals should also be here. No weight loss this week, even though I had a couple of mid week hikes, but also had colleagues in town, and that meant a few pubs were hit... but that's OK, this week has been about the bike tweaks.

I found out just how race orientated my bike is this week, the 53/39 crank and 12-26 cassette are pretty much TDF territory for the lower incline stages.... some riders going to 11-28 for the mountain stages and rear down to 11-22 on the real flat stages... now theses guys are 30kg lighter than me...

happy riding.
