Hi from Oxford, UK

HIIIIII!

I'm a mostly road cyclist with a couple of bikes.

One 2018 Dawes Ultra Galaxy which I've recently upgraded to a stupid hybrid (as in mix of road and mtb kit) DI2 setup so now have a 3x (48/36/26) on the front and an 11-42 (11 speed) on the back. This replaced the 2017 dawes galaxy that got embedded in the front of a car (double pelvic fracture resulting) a month after i got a warranty replacement on my 2015 dawes galaxy (random frame failure )

While I was lying on the sofa, post double pelvic fracture, I accidentally bought a CF Prorace Daemon for 300 on ebay. 10000+ miles later the braze on front derailleur mount failed (its now my 1x 50x11-50 zwift machine). This was replaced by my current roadbike, a PlanetX RT-80 in 2021. This has since been upgraded to an 11x 6870 DI2 setup with a 53x39 and 11-32 (11 speed)..

Been through a lot on those bike ... The ultra galaxy was used to complete the cingle de mont ventoux just 4 months after the double pelvic fracture. Definitely one of my all time successes.

Had a couple of bad years due to illness since 2020 (which i totalled 13000+ miles over the year) and am playing catch up right now. I really want to do the col d'isere and the cime de la bonette to complement having already done the stelvio (on the dawes funnily enough).

Anyway, nice to meet you all! Woulda shared photos of the bikes but apparently I'm not allowed to post photos until a further 9 posts ...
