42 mles on the boneshaker, 2 crashes when the bike decided to go a different direction that I was steering.. got to love a bike with rear wheel steering... probably the last ever KHS ride.

Knackered now. averaged 12.4mph, not bad given how hard it is to ride the bike up anything.

Super fast ride today, 40.9miles in 3 hours 3 mins!

I felt like crap all ride, I guess I know why now! that;s the second highest avg speed in the last 6 months... pretty good conditions too ..brill!

40.9miles (13.3avg) | Dry, Windy, Warm, Misty then Sunny. Suffered quite a bit.

The KHS has now done 1,000 miles.

Stupid wind's back, yet again I got a 13.0 average speed though, despite struggling around.

I must be ace or something.

Collected my 5th pinchflat on the KHS today, actually, could be my 6th. I'm averaging one per week at the moment, or should that be 1 every 4 rides.

It's probably more to do with th tyre than the bike, but as the bike can only fit a continental 2.3 in (or in english a 2.1), then I can blame the bike. I wasn't even aware I'd hit anything until the back end went mushy, althought I might have heard something if the back of the bike didn't rattle so damn loudly.. stupid bike.

28.4miles (12 avg) | Windy, HOT, Sunny.

Working things out I think I only need some cross tyres to make the pompino up, if I steal parts from other bikes, and use some Diacompe (three numbers like 547) brakes (until I get something better). This is after I've orders a front hub and some spokes. Which I was going to do today, but my man at the shop's not in.
