Quiet week this week

Well got the email from Westys on Fri pm, wheels were ready for collection. Popped down today to pick them up and they are looking good - Hope Fatsno hubs front & rear (black). Surly Marge Lite Rims, Surly Marge Lite Rim Tapes (blue) & Hope rear skewer (black). Jason got the parts and Mark did a grand job of building them. That is the first set of builds on the new Hope Fastno hubs for Westys so im the test pilot !

Fitted the tyres,tubes, cassette and on they went. Just a sucker for the hope rear purr ! Alot lighter than the wheelset that came on the Mukluk 2, so thats another 1.3 lbs knocked off the old girl. Shame it was such a wet, cold & windy day. The drive down and back on the A19 was an experience with drivers belting past 80+mph with no lights on and standing water on the road / spray, was pleased to get back home.
That was the highlight of the week as i had a rest day Mon, did the night loop on Tues but legs were empty and crap weather / could not be bothered for the rest of week means miles are well down. Not looking good for tomorrow either with gale force winds, freezing cold and snow forecast. Good luck to the riders who are doing the Nutcracker @ Dalby, think you might need it after 24+hrs solid rain. You can enter on the day £26+ £4 parking (reduced from £7)
Report on the new wheelset after i get a few rides in on them.
