    Also, I don't think they're that ugly. Damn sight nicer than a Brooks anyhow.

    Commuter is a drop bar roadie, ridden in the drops haha. Reckon TRK?

    Hmm this is interesting. I like riding predominantly in the drops but my current saddle (which has a small groove but no cutout) is causing me some discomfort shall we say. SMP looks like it may help, if I've understood the discussion. Tempted to get a TRK to stick on the commuter for a couple of weeks as a test.

    Did a total of 27 miles yesterday, probably 16 or so on some nice hilly trails.

    Somehow dragged myself out for the club ride this morning. Now in agony.

    @amey @Velocio cheers, will have a look and see how much clearance I've got left. Fork and frame clearance is fine, it's a 27" to 700c conversion. Narrow rim too.

    What's the widest tyres you reckon I can get away with on 18-23 Chromoplastics? I'll have a measure later but any chance of 25s or even 28s?

    Garmin pissing Connect just crashed and lost the running course I'd spent about an hour painstakingly copied from a map.

    What's the accepted best all year round tyre? Conti 4 Seasons? Need something I can put on the road bike now and not remove til it wears out. I'm not one for changing tyres for different conditions.

    And what width? Currently on 23c Mich Lithion and Conti Ultrasport combo.

    I just had a rather bizarre one on my way back in from a club ride, riding alone at this point.

    Driver parked on the right, facing forwards, pulls across the road in front of me, so I slow down and freewheel, he then slows right down before doing a sudden jab on his brakes before pulling over to the left and telling me to "Get off my arse you fucking prick". I responded in kind, and cycled off.

    I'm more puzzled than anything, what was he possible hoping to achieve? Make me crash into his bumper and damage his car? Why?

    And it was his fault for pulling into a space that wasn't there, the bellend.
