Just bought a 2021 Specialized Roubaix Sport. I've only ridden it for a few miles, but I already love it.

My favourite winter top finally gave up after 10 years of cosy riding on chilly nights.

New one on the way. Looks like they've improved the pockets otherwise the same.

Will it FIT on my handlebars? TBD Broke before I used it once! Installed last night, found it on the the floor, broke, this morning. I want my money back!

Got some 28c Conti GP5000s to replace the stock Bontrager 25c tires that came on the bike. Dropped 10psi, incredible difference in smoothness and speeds all up slightly.

Looking at a new Wahoo Kickr now....

I think it's 10 posts until you can start a new thread. Not sure about pictures...

I got myself a new cockpit look - Profile Design clip-on bars and Wahoo Elemnt Bolt.

Quick test ride already done, love it, can't wait for the long Sunday ride to test both.

The Swat mini tool was a waste of money. Fell out of its holster on one of my last two rides. It seemed very secure but obviously wasnít. Lesson learned.

Put a set of Panaracer Gravel King SK tubeless tires on a new set of Shimano GRX WH-RX570 wheels. My second set of tubeless tires.

Iím pleased with tubeless tires. Although there is a real learning curve when it comes to mounting them.

My first attempt mounting the Gravel Kings was a complete failure. The tires went on the wheels fairly easily, without resorting to tire irons. Hands only. Getting the bead to seat and the tires to hold air was a whole different experience.I first tried my trusty Silca floor pump, not enough volume. I tried soapy water, no go. I got out my compressor and cranked it up to 120 psi. Nothing but wind blowing through the bead. I even tried putting sealant in the tires along with the compressor. Big mess.

Finally consulted the inter-web and found a suggestion to mount the tires with a tube in them and let them sit overnight. Then remove the tube carefully, only breaking the bead on one side of tire. Put the stem back and muscle the open side of the tires back on the rim. At that point I was able use my floor pump to seat the bead. Really amazing how well the suggestion worked. Thought I would share.

Got this the other day. Waiting on the powermeter, bars and wheels to show.

Just ordered a Garmin 530 today. Been using my Fenix 5X, but since I canít run anymore, it was time for a proper bike computer.
