by golly it’s yummy looking isn’t it!


Yup, that’s the new race bike.

More info here.

To be raced at the Strathpuffer, which i am seriously looking forward to in both a 24hr race sense and a ‘real adventure’ sense too

Suffice to say i’m really rather happy

bikes rule, don’t they


  1. they rule unless it;s windy and everything’s not flowing.

  8. Looks great

    I’m working my way through various feelings about the Strathpuffer….an epic adventure it will be. Got new lights which are ruling the tech night rides in this saw tooth valley. And I’m stocking up on merino wool socks

  9. ” And I’m stocking up on merino wool socks”

    Merino wool has no advantages in the pouring rain 😉

  11. wool can still be warm even when it’s wet…

    …i hope!

    Will have to do some sort of “New Bike Ride” to get a bit used to it when it arrives

  12. “wool can still be warm even when it’s wet…”

    yeah, sorry, I meant, wool or Merino wool, when tye’re saturated they act the same., merino wool has the advantage in sweaty circumstanses, as it pulls moisture from the skin, but when it’s soggy, it makes no difference to normal wool.

    It should still be warmish, but only if encased in a windproof container (boots or coat)
