So far so good on the new bike. It feels comfortable and solid and accelerates well. I have been out every day this week. I had a good hilly ride on Thursday and a longer ride of about 115 km out to South Beach and back today. About 50km of today’s ride was on dirt – lots of corrugation and rocks. We did the first hour in the rain – almost like an English summer morning. We had a fairly stiff head wind going out but a nice tail wind coming back. The croix de fer performed well. The head set loosened a bit but I tightened that up and it is fine. Looking forward to next week.
