    Just a few blood and snott reps up Rivington pike for me , I dont do much road rather stick to the rough stuff you can get longer climbs in too!!:thumbup:
    need to get more fast climbs in as today effort was lacking
    I might be Tup , But not too Tup to know that I am Tup:w00t:

    18 mile to work. Found a shorted route as legs were heavy from weekend.

    I remember a previous spoke breaking incident on those wheels, they are a bit crap, aren't they? Get some Mavics!

    Cracking ride on Saturday! Stayed over at Boat of Garten on Friday night for a wedding in Nethy Bridge that was not until 17.30 on Saturday. At 9.15 on Saturday left B-o-G for Coylum Bridge, then Glenmore, upto Corrie Cas car park ( a mini Alp d'Huez moment ). Back down for coffee in Glenmore cafe, then Coylum Bridge, Nethy Bridge; met up with wifey in Grantown-on-Spey for cafe lunch. Returned to Nethy Bridge for detour to pinpoint the kirk and returned to B-o-G for shower and shave. According to the signposts at road junctions about 48 miles and a fair bit of climbing! All on the old fillet brazed 531 IslaBike 'crosser ( 25mm Conti Gatorskins )

    The bike handled lovely over the rough roads though Dom. Ive set it up for a more sit up ride, touring almost. The 531, and the 631 for me have always been the most comfy of steels.
    If your thinking of a Mecian though Dom, be prepared for a good 6 month wait
    Daz, thus you are saying that 631 would be far superior to 953 'super steel' for an audax/general purpose frame for long steady rides ( basically confirming what Dave Yates says on his website )? Have you ever ridden a Reynolds 725 ( heat treated Cro-Mo ) frame? How does that compare with 631?

    I'd love to see a blind test that considered how different frame materials feel, without the riders knowing what they are meant to be expecting.

    When I say a blind test, I don't necessarily mean blind people riding the bkes.

    So, Mud, you're not looking for an "eye poker outer" to help with your tests?
