Probably due to the new Scott CR1 Team bike i picked up this week. I figured I should splash out and support my LBS before she gives all our hard earned to Ikea. I mean how many cushions and shelves do we really need anyway?
Just had a 10 kms run along the veloway to scrub the tyres in and get a feel for the new toy, I'll give her a better run tomorrow down to McLaren Vale (coffee Jim ?) and depending on that the CVSA run on Sunday morning.
Not as low geared as the flat bar but a lot lighter, lower rolling diameter and go faster striping should all help me if you head for the hills.
I also changed from SPD pedals to Look Keos, what a difference, far easier to clip in and out.
I'm happy, SWMBO will come round eventually, the TdF starts tomorrow, Life's good.
Thanks guys. I'm not really having a great deal of troubles with them. As a fairly new rider I guess it comes down to experiance and muscle memory. I'm sure one day I'll just hit the sweet spot every time. There have been a few times when I'm in a hurry (or fluster) at an intersection that I have had a few attempts to clip in (at the delight of passers by).
After a couple of days with SPD's and getting cocky how easy it all is I found this morning that i was pulling up at intersections without clicking out until the last moment. No drama but I must focus more.
