Raf - My brother in law has promised to weld up some stabilisers before we go to Austria in the mean time I'm sticking to the turbo. At some point i will have to get back on a "big boys bike" and ride on the road again.
Sorry to bring this thread back up to the top but after my "off" a couple of weeks ago the man at the bike shop suggested my tyres looked a bit "shiney" and may need to be replaced. Do tyres get a bit shiney even if they aren't down to the wear indicators?
Assuming I need new tyres I'll take the advice here and from others that GP4000s (II) are the way forward. 2 questions remain, 23vs25 and latex vs butyl innertubes. Are these technical questions for those at the pointiest end of the field or should I be considering these options. I'm aiming for a 6hrs IM bike leg, nearly 40yo male 12st if any of that matters?
As I'm stuck in the rather flat north Essex Herts boarders what my best approach for hill training? I have a few hills I can train on but none of them are very long, the steeper they are the shorter they get. The best I have is about 300ft over 2.25miles do I need to just do repeats on a long hill like that or a shorter steeper one or both?
Not a big issue quite yet as confined to the turbo until the wires come out of my thumb on Monday even then may be in a cast until I go away for Easter Hols. May not hit the road again til mid April.
Good to see everyone make good use of the spring like weather.
Nice bike WW was it hard to find one in Yellow and Black?
