After much procrastination this morning, I eventually decided I couldn’t face dragging a mtb round the waterlogged countryside, so decided to bring the Lemond out of retirement.
I replaced the poncy carbon wheels with the repaired Campag Centaur/Mavic Open Pro ones which necessitated a tyre swap and a bit of fettling. Once that was done I headed out round the usual quick Burnett route of 15 miles, mainly because my back won’t cope with much more than that at the moment. I’d forgotten quite how comfortable the Lemond is, and how much of the road induced vibration it damps out.
In the end it was a very pleasant, if somewhat windy ride.
