    But for commuting... how far do you go? Do you spend much time in the drops?

    Seems like excuse to me for not doing the correct thing! ;)

    Not a lot of proper stem slammage happening on these last few pics. If you've gone with the 54 over a 52 I'd expect zero stack on the headset cover for max points.

    Fucking hell, Messi has ripped Lyon to pieces in this second half.

    They've been replaced by some Shimano ones now. Chainring has also been upgraded to the Force version.

    There are some dimwits that think sacking a manager every year is fine if you're not in the top 6 throughout the whole season.

    At the beginning of the season I wasn't sure what to expect. Some great early form and results got everyone frothing their piss and a recent poor run has turned that froth into bleach.

    I'd rather we give Frank a bit of time to see what he can do when we get rid of some of the dross we've signed over the last few seasons. If we can get a few million from Chelsea for buying him out of his contract then I'd probably take it though.

    This is our standard bottling time.

    Don't apologise. There are some things called hills out in Essex. I'm not trying to say they're anything special, hence why I can run 1x with a decent sized chainring without a problem.

    I preferred it when we just used to criticise valve alignment and saddle angles.

    The Engine 11 looks fun.

    I have 50t chainring 1x setup on my Caad12 and feel guilty that I have a cassette that goes up to 32t on it. It gets me up Swains, Mott Street and other hills out in Essex without a problem.

    If I wanted to do some more serious climbing and stay with 1x I'd be sizing down the chainring and getting a hub that can take 10t sprockets.

    I was under the impression the season finished when the January transfer window shut. Who knew?
