Ok, I've a few posts to write up - one on the Tour of Kildare and one on round 2 of the K-cap series... they will be done I promise!

But in the mean time I've been busy building this...
I just need a cable hanger for the front brakes and its road worthy (not sure about off road tho). I thought I might have cut the steerer to short, but I think it'll work. The Kinesis pro5 frame came off of ebay, along with the Scott carbon fork and Kore canti brakes. Everything else (apart from the saddle) came off the Beone.

On top of Cross races, I'll be using it for the commute to work as the TCR is taking a battering on the back roads.

Changing times

And what I mean by that is that I'm taking less time to do my road spins...

Last week I did the Laragh, Shay Elliot, Slieve Mann run. It took 4 hours 12 minutes. Last time I did that loop in early January, it took 4 hours 45 minutes.

It also did this to my legs - apologies for the hairyness :)

And today I did my fastest time around Blessington lake - 1:30 for the 49km's (200 meters of climbing in there too I might add!)

New posts coming soon, but something funny I found on the club site...
