Were 38cm bars an aero consideration? I’ve got 40s on the fast bike and that feels narrow, I wouldn’t want less off road
They were an experiment for TABR that I never changed back. I'd have loved my 42s back, probably even better on something with flared drops out to more like 46cm. I did have a set off the grrl's bike but the weird Spesh bend wouldn't have allowed the aerobars to fit and I couldn't be arsed trying to find locations for Garmins and stuff with no aerobars. I'd pulled out when insurance became an issue but got back in with a different insurance company. Bit of a last minute bike setup.
Great work all round folks!
Looks rad, where did you put water?
It's what PaddleBoats are paddled on.
What pedals are these pls?
What ever hippy use to lubricate them selves with then. Sack in the frame bag?
Big blue ones.
Pedaling Innovations Catalyst ONE pedals.
Bladder in the frame bag. I did also have a bottle on a cage under the down tube but it decide it would have a better life in the Gorafe desert so ejected itself into the scrub before I could even touch its contents.
i know you are a big fan of aerobars; but did these get any action at all?
Is it true you need a bell for Spanish events? Do they enforce?!
I did use the aerobars a bit but mostly just to rest my hands. I'd certainly not buy a set for this event. Mine are all wired up to the dynamo and USB so it's a pain to remove them and I'd have to find new spots for Garmins, etc.
I heard no mention of bells. Because of Covid there was no bike check this year anyway.
No tedious bike check
It’s taken me 6+ months but I have finally found a perk of Covid!
The other perk is that Alhambra, which usually has to be booked 2 months in advance, can be booked 2hrs beforehand. Lovely.
Thats a touch; my wife wanted to go and visit it When we were there in 2019 but my usual last minute planning is not normally conducive....
Is that a watch he's wearing or an mp3 player or what?
@Dick has one
Oh ok, I thought they were smaller for some reason. That looks like a tracker strapped to his arm!
Ignore me, found better picture of a whoop. The bulk is from an external battery pack that slides on top.
