    Ty!

    I suppose now is the time to admit there was a good amount of time after I changed the fork where I thought “why did I even get rid of that perfectly built cinelli, I’ve fucked up”

    Deep wanting to just bin it

    But now? Very happy how it has turned out 😌 and can add it to the portfolio of nice bike builds

    The cinelli for context

    Uk Gravel trading report

    Sub 40c gravel bikes up 5.3 points
    650b slicks up 2.5 points
    2” monster cross down 6 points

    There seems to be mumbling amongst big gravel posters that they’re regretting their heavy investment in shitfromabuttinc, but are holding strong to see it pay off in the 3rd quarter, see this spike of 35isenoughcorp as a short term bubble

    Bike buyers are nervous that their 6 month lead times might lead them to miss this return, bike manufacturers were asked to reassure the market and are yet to reply

    February in Swinley, was nice, dry, quite busy but plenty of space to nervously career around people.

    Was equally fun and jealous going past mtbs on my 35s and one gear as they clunked through their cassette, but couldn’t help but wish that was me rolling over it all opposed to “picking a line”

    The bike rides lovely, was worried I’d need a shorter stem but I think it’s more I don’t ride a bike a lot than anything else, no pain out riding or back home.

    Gravel couture today?

    Jil sander knitted long sleeve
    Liam hodges short sleeve
    Tnf vest

    Could have done without the vest but I’m sure it looked cool flapping about and provided ample storage

    You may recognise this seatpost as the crust simple seatpost, to real heads, you can get it for half price by using the code “Kalloy” At any local bike shop

    The bars are nice! Might tilt them down a bit more before heading out but otherwise, instant improvement

    this is like when you see a zoomer in dad jeans and a baggy sweater and a buzz cut, it works because it's by choice :^)

    it's just the time i book in at the end of the week to reflect on my workflows and run analysis on my current capacity, if needs be a will circle back and examine possible synergies for the next week to optimise bandwidth for upcoming challenges, but it's important i am never, ever, interrupted during this because it will impact my productivity over the course of the quarter.

    but it absolutely, categorically, is not because i'm in the shed with an awful spotify playlist and day drinking
