haha I'd be up for that though I'd probably slow the whole group down.

We were gonna do Snowdon today but the weather looked shit with snow warnings etc so went to the Long Mynd instead, love riding there. Almost 1000m of climbing on the Voltage was not so fun though..

Looks like a solo ride again tomorrow, all my friends are wastemen. Would join a club but they all go out at 9am and fuck that.

So badass, but, racing on Gatorskins? Those wheels deserve better tires.

Of course the gatorskins will be swapped when the season really starts. There is so much debris on the road still I'm actually glad I had them on.

While I'm at it, anyone have any tire recommendations? I rode 23mm GP4000s last season and I really liked them, however I was thinking about some 24mm Specy turbo cottons or Vittoria Corsa somethings. I ride my Enve's training and racing so I'd like something to last at least 3k miles.

I use 25mm gp4000s, can't fault them. Vittoria ride nice but get shredded super quick, heard the same goes for Specialized. I'd stick to Gp4000s or maybe Challenge if you can get them.

I'm going to GP4000's when I've got some decent use out of the Lugano's that came on mine. Everyone seems to slate Lugano's but I haven't had any problems in the wet or even on icy roads.

Those Enve wheels are sick. What's the view on Mavic wheels? One of the blokes at work was saying that the hubs aren't really up to much.

Edit - missed the key 'aren't' bit out!

Mavic are well due a redesign. Narrow V-shaped rims are proven to not be very good compared to wider rounder rims like Zipp, Enve etc.

Pretty much finished. What would you guys change, I can't help but think it looks a little on the ugly side.

It'll have mud on it next week ;) just waiting for some shorter chainring bolts and a new Derailleur barrel adjuster then she can get out.

The pink swing arm doesn't help either, if it was raw it'd all look fine I reckon.
