Another winter day in Paradise. It is BoaBs b'day today, so we slept in a bit and rode to the coffee shop on the Strand. It was really foggy offshore, but perfect where we were.
My new steed. A Specialised WSD like the old bike, but the top of the range. Very nice indeed. I wanted a bit of a change in size, and while this is the same frame, it (so far) has a longer stem and I am stretched out a bit.
I think it is fair to say I am a bit too stretched, but I have niggling shoulder issues, and was suffering a stabbing upper back pain on long rides. When I tested this bike we just set the seat at a good height and I took off and did almost 50k. No pain. They then did a proper fit, changed to a shorter headstem and I did around 25k, stabbed again! So I got them to put it back to the way it was and I will ride and fiddle, then get the bike fitter I like best to do a proper long session.
You know what they say about the view not changing much unless you are the lead dog.
Winter on the bikeway. I love my bikeway, the best way to travel later in the day when the traffic is building up. Notice the bright bloom ahead. The mango trees should be setting a lot of fruit this year if the bloom is anything to go by.
Well the bike can't be too slow if I can get this far ahead of BoaB!. He was obviously to busy clicking photos to peddle. Nearly home, time for pancakes and strawberries!
