    7hrs is quick esp that way round when the hills come at the end.

    I'm utterly sick of how factual news reporting has been almost completely excluded by sensationalist 'how did it feel' interviews of distressed survivors/relatives with camera angles getting the anchors distressed face in shot etc.
    What time did fire start
    Where did appliances come from
    How high could their ladders reach
    How high could their hoses reach
    How should the gap between hose reach and top of building been accommodated
    What was the plan of the fire brigades
    How did they attempt to rescue
    Where were alarms situated
    What is the sequence of activation for the alarms
    etc

    Of course this would require some journalistic effort. Far easier to interview some tearful relative.

    Decided my coffee habit was getting a bit out of hand (400-600g a week) so tried tea with breakfast.
    I now have a monster head ache.

    Impressive - I'll never beat 13hrs. Did 14hrs 49mins and was planning an attempt at 13hrs 30mins until I got sick.

    Might have to try that. 2nd week of complete meh with glands and non symptomatic feeling shattered/achy by the afternoon. Had exactly the same this time last year. EBV or just coincidence........

    ^^ Nice Ritchey and for £1700 a great spec if the wheels are good. I have no experience of Ritchey wheels. Rest is good esp the fork. 2x11 great for week long trips.

    You might check rear tyre clearance - quite often not very generous on steel frames (juggling cranks, tyre and chain stay length).

    Looks pretty much a modern version of my Niner MCR 9 and that is such fun I ride it more than my Curtis atm
