Sometimes its hard to admit you are wrong, at least this time I am doing it with a wry smile on my face. I am lucky enough that my commute is a 9 mile bike ride over the south downs, and I have been doing it for the last few years in a bike I built for myself when I was 16 (a while ago). Plenty of people stop me to indulge in a spot of nostalgia (or to laugh at the fat old man on his old mans bike) and have said I should buy a newer one. My response was always that the only thing slowing it down was me. A couple of weeks ago I brought the GREEN bike above and today was my first ride in on it. Suddenly I don't feel so fat or old. Or slow.
Thanks @ragleybikes for the huge grin that lasted most of the way here ( I had to close my mouth on the last downhill).
