Roger's bike resplendent with its new dropper seat post
The bike wash going the other way from normal
Baz, Roger and me out yesterday late afternoon with Roger sporting a new dropper seat post on his steed. This is to allegedly contribute to a new record on the descent from Maidens Cleugh to Glencorse but the banter went that if a new record is created it will be tagged with WDS (with dropper seat) as opposed to W/ODS (without dropper seat)!!
My mishap today was a broken chain, which I attempted to put down to raw power but was eventually seen to be old age (the chain not me). Today's job has been renewing the complete drive chain and after a short test ride the difference is fantastic.
We did the winter loop again yesterday and after a week of more or less continual rain halk the time we were either pedalling uphill or downhill in 2 inches of water. Drier weather, at last, forecast for this week and not before time as the Glentress 7 is only 2 weeks away.
