    HAHA, doubt it.. Sunday's ride was a massive 6 miles and my first spin on the bike in over 7 months.. I'm on the mend after getting a hole in my heart closed up.. Hopefully i'll be smashing Strava PR's soon enough.. :-)

    new 9 speed KMC chain arrived today. It was the same price for a chain and quicklink as it was for a quicklink.. so just finished building it up tonight..

    Bought a helmet for £10 from planet X for my wee fella and ended up buying Tektro Canti's for the bianchi. So quick brake install with cables and also got the gear inners installed.. waiting on a new chain as it was just as cheap as buying a quick link for my existing chain..

    Just a note about the real vs fake debate. I bought a replica Tudor BB a few months back which I posted on here.. Its a very good quality for a fake.. I like the Tudors and may opt for the genuine item in the future.. I don't have any issue wearing it. I also switch between a Steinhart which is obviously a Rolex homage and then have a Seiko SKX007.. a good solid diver which does the job. Just for comparison I have a Tag Carrera Chrono which I got as a wedding present from my wife 14 years ago.. I'm not precious about it and generally will wear it doing most things.. I think you might as well get the value from it. The only thing I remove it for is tiling.. although I did have the glass back smashed playing 5-a-side one night.. so I won't do that again.. Generally when I go on holiday i take the Steinhart and Seiko as if one of them got damaged or lost I wouldn't be gutted.. The TAG stays at home more for sentimental value if something happened to it.. Someday I would like to pass it onto my only son when he gets married.. Should have decent patina by then :-)
