best weather bike

The weather over here has been bone dry for weeks with about 2 days of showers.

Once the clocks changed the winter bike got a wash and a rest. It's been a stalwart this winter, but in some ways it rides like winter. Hard, head down just getting on with it.

Out came the sun, out came the best bike. It was like riding spring.

Fresh, snappy and fast. It put the 'ING back in cycling to work.

I took it down the print shop at lunch, gave it a wash. The chain got some summery green oils white dry lube and then 120psi in the rear tyre and 110 in the front for a little grip and vibration reduction.

I bought a water bottle cage and some Nunn hydration stuff.

Tonight it's a long way home ride.
