According to that there might have been a drain cover or something he was tring to warn you about. Fuck em though, if you were passing on the right then there's no need for him to be pointing stuff out on the left,  he was probably being a prick and trying to wave you back.

Next time just hang back for a mile so that you can burn em whilst giving the middle finger salute. No one wants to be caught in a game of leap frog, that's the worst.

Think I will do that in future! It was a wide open country road wth no traffic on so must have been knobheads.I just kept my head down and went full chat for a bit so they didn't come past me again.

Odds are if he was pointing to the floor it'll just have been pointing out a pothole or drain cover, nothing too sinister.

Riding in a group can get really irritating. Fat middle aged men thinking they're faster than they are. Either way need to go out with a faster group next time.

Probably the wrong time of year to ask but what's everyone using as a winter bike? I think I'm going to pick up a Pinnacle Dolomite soon. It's more than shit enough that I won't mind ruining it and cheap as fuck to us at work. It also has mudguard mounts. Seems ideal.

Picked up a Gensis Equilibrium a few weeks back. Not built yet but its going to have all the SRAM force gear off my current carbon when the new groupo gets here. It's got mounts for guards and racks if ever I get round to buying any.

Haha nice one MEAT. I'm thinking about doing the FOD mini enduro in October, are they fun? I'm sure I'll be well slow but just something I wanna try.

Hard one to answer really, ive done a full series of the pmba thing with a bunch of mates, by and large the tracks have been a bit shit and its been bloody expensive, but then again the weekend as a whole has been fun and i got a couple of reasonable results. I raced downhill a lot bitd and i never really enjoyed that with all the pressure and potential to fuck up a weekend with one bad line, etc, where i've actually really enjoyed the competition element to racing enduros, bit less at stake i guess? Probably 60% of the field can barely ride without stabilisers and the top 10% im fairly sure arent even human, so aim for the achievable gap in the middle. Will probably do a couple next year too, but not a full series, its been at the expense of the usual weekends away to lakes, scotland, wales, etc and they were generally more fun.

Promised myself not to buy another bike this summer, but again I found myself working in a bikeshop. This one happens to carry Santa Cruz, so here I am buying bits for a rigid ss Highball. Should be fun.
