Slapshot 3

So.....fatboy bought a roadie again.....

... had to happen 200 dabble off e-bucket but it works. pics when I can.

Edinburgh Bicycles "Curve" few years old. Chunky alloy frame and forks though a nice pair carbon forks came with it. Full Tiagra groupset bar an Ultegra 9 speed rear cluster, Shifters Crank and Mechs all renewed last year. No name (Regina) front wheel and it says an Ambrosio rear (suspect a copy) but they are true and nice and chunky (just what I need), Hutcheson clinchers finish things off. Easton bars and stem Ritchey layback seatpost and a nice (ish!!) Velo saddle (that'll disappear when I can get my hands on another Flite saddle). My MTB spuds finish things off.

Eveything works, (except me) and though it's a far cry from everything I sold 12 years ago it'll get me back on the road.

My first five miles with sprog (she's even worse on a bike than me just now) lots of position stuff need done, seat position and pedals, new shoes and newish pedals, so cleat position and tensions of off by miles. Felt comfy enough apart from the position stuff but I'm so unfit it's unbelieveable.

Aims...to lose an shed load of weight, get fit again and tackle some BIG climbs next time we go to France but ultimately I'd like to get back to Northern Italy again, another crack at the Stelvio, Gavia & Mortirolo.  I'd love a couple of hours on the Zoncolan before I go toes up!!
