Thank Crunchie it’s Friday

At last the working week is over. Today has been a day of bizarre weather. We’d get strong winds and torrential rain for about 30 seconds, then it would be glorious sunshine for a while, then wind and rain, then sunshine. Repeat as needed for 12 hours.

Popped into the LBS after work to pick up a new tyre for the back of the cross bike, the Conti Twister having worn almost down the center smooth after a mere 800 miles. Picked up a pair of IRC Mythos CX Slick tyres in a 38mm width, the only downside being very limited clearance for the back wheel now as they are quite a bit bigger than the 37mm Twister. I’ll run them for the summer and stick a Twister back on when things get gloopy under tyre again.

RIP Marlon Brando.

    Is this LBS the same, and now very famous, LBS that saved the day for some poor erk who was going to do a charity cycle-ride round Uzbekistan or somewhere, on, what turned out to be, a stolen bike frame!
    LBS loans ’60’s chopper and saves the day!
    Hooray!
    Rule Britania, and King John! (or Ian?)

    Aye, it would indeed be that particular LBS.
