I finally got round to building the Salsa singlespeed using all the bits I took off the Surly before I flogged it. The new one was a tatty mess when I got it, so after some new paint it’s as good as new. Bloody chips easily though 😦 Grrrr.
It’s at least a couple of pounds lighter than the Surly and a whole load more fun to ride. Handling is on the quick side, as I found out when I crashed and landed in a bush.
We went to watch the cyclocross race in Blackley earlier. I should have entered really.
I missed you at the cross, probably as I was dying for the whole hour! It was good fun though!
I was shouting “go faster!” at you when you went past us.
I’ve found recently there is much pleasure to be had from watching races. In fact much more than actually doing them.
I agree. My heckling skills are improving all the time.
