first ride

We went out to Poppit Sands today to make a little movie on our Quickburst jacket and it was the first ride out for the new bike project. Tidy Mike was in the boot with the camera, Ruben was at the wheel and I felt the lack of riding I've been doing over the last 3 months.The frameset is the Trek Red OCLV carbon, the groupset Sram Force, wheels by Bontrager and tyres and tubes Conti's Grand Prix 24c ready for winter, saddle Selle Italia and an Easton stem.  I think it's lighter than all the packaging.

And the ahead cap was from the 2007 Single Speed Champs.

I still have some fine tuning to do as things stretch and loosen but the rigidity and the weight are going to be hellish fun round here.

Roll on summer and a hot new tarmac road.

I played my "too nice to be here" card so I can be off tomorrow to give it a roasting.
