Milestone #1 of the Week.

The Surly is now 6,000 miles old!

Hope O2

Off came the Avid Juicy 5 and back on went the 1998 Hope O2. It feels bloody awful at the moment, to be honest, so I'll have to rebuild it at the weekend. (along with the entire drivetrain on the roadster that creaks like mad after last sundays sogfest)

Hope O2

I managed to keep up me 32 day record of being rained on... today was only heavy drizzle for a few minutes and lots of puddles..Still very windy.

It's a Saturday so I could use a new set of pads, Avid Sintered, and unsurprisingly they lasted less than 25 miles because it was wet (again). I also punctured twice. but still managed in the region of 37 miles (my gps switched off when I was fixing one of the flats)

Not bad, in that time I only hit the brakes around 6 times. Awesome!

Needless to say, another shit day for the cyclist.
