The S-Works Build

I love building bikes. Especially my own, it gives them a more personal touch. After building up my new S-Works frame this will be the fifth bike I have built myself for myself. The plan was to use all of the bits and pieces from my old road bike and port them across to my... Continue Reading →

My First S-Works

For as long as I can remember I've always wanted an S-Works frame. I love the look of the Specialized Venge, but I found it a little too stiff for the kind of riding I do. Don't get me wrong, if money and space weren't an issue there would certainly be one in the collection.... Continue Reading →

The Weekend Ride: Caunton

Some very pretty scenery around a place when we don't ride often enough. We set out from Will's after a few text messages the night before organising where we'd ride. We both agreed that we were slightly bored or riding the same roads. The issue was that we didn't normally have time to go further afield.... Continue Reading →

Josh and I decided that we would go for a ride. The weather was bright, chilly but the sun was out. I headed over to... Continue Reading →

First Ride

We played around with the saddle height and position for a little bit to make sure he was happy and comfortable. Nothing worse than being... Continue Reading →

The Weekend Ride: Calverton

And then there were three of us. I've been trying to get Josh, my brother-in-law, to come out for a ride with myself and Will for a while. Josh and I usually go mountain biking but he also has a road bike which he uses for commuting. The starting point was my house and we... Continue Reading →

Picture or Personal Best?

So, here's the scenario. You're out and about on the bike. You're feeling good. The weather is great. You're enjoying a lovely cycle along a country road where you know there is a Strava segment. But, at the same time, you notice a fantastic photo opportunity with a fantastic view that could only be improved... Continue Reading →
