Oooh, bike tarting! Be rude not to: Tripster AT with two wheelsets for road, offroad, allroad, etc. In offroad/allroad mode: And in winter road warrior mode. Super comfortable and keep

My custom Trek Emonda ALR from Sigma Sports - took advantage of the change to cycle to work rules to allow frame sets - shame I haven’t had the chance to ride it all that much.  Next step is a new tur

Ah, whilst this is more about "what do we ride", I thought I'd add a nostalgic pic of last time I went gravel riding - feels like ages ago.

Got a few to add here but here's my latest.

It's my winter bike - frame is nothing special, Italian brand 'Olmo' and made from Deda steel. I had it blasted and clear  coated/lacquered and it came out really well in my opinion! A bit like a titanium colour; brown-champagne- with the raw steel and surface rust bleeding through underneath. Components are mainly Shimano 600/Ultegra with a modern-yet-period looking compact crankset.

How do you find the Topstones rear pivot? It was on my shortlist of gravel bikes before I ended up buying a Rondo Ruut.

It's pretty amazing - a very clever piece of engineering indeed. It's like dropping the tyres by 10-15psi. My only gripe is that, of course, you can't control the rebound. For heavier riders, the combined effect from the rear triangle and the tyres means that you can get a bit of a delayed bucking effect, but this is a pretty minor point.

Oval chainrings?!

 

They came back 3 or 4 years ago and I believe are reasonably popular. I have one on both of my mountain bikes. Supposedly they're the opposite way to the old biopace. I think I could detect an improvement but I wouldn't stake my life on it.

 

This thread might motivate me back onto a bike. Here's hoping...

Sky...Ineos use oval chain rings....I used to ride a track bike in the 70's with one

Given I’m currently off the bike (kinda) with a broken hip after falling of my new gravel bike ( I have no pics of that) thought I would share a pic of my current summer bike, my Tarmac SL6 and my wife’s Turbo Creo SL e-bike.
Stunning bike that I love riding, wife loves hers and keeps me honest when climbing lol.

Correct. I have a flat in torrevieja 👍

Still to find good coffee or even beans out there. Any ideas? 

They have a good market there on a Friday. We are further south, 15minutes from the new airport.

Sorry, can't help regards good coffee, don't think I've had a bad café con leché, not even looked for coffee beans here, but my coffee journey hasn't started...yet,  once I do, suppose they will all be rubbish drinks...!!!

My riding partner had new hip last year due to a crash

Thankfully they managed to repair mine, was going to be a THR( total hip replacement) but after reviewing they repaired it. Been back on the turbo spinning 16 days after surgery and back on and TrainerRoad, admittedly at lower output, a few days after that. Even taking part in Tour de Zwift just under 6 weeks post surgery.
Have bought a gravel bike and not had a chance to ride it yet, apart from my crash, so itching to get out on it. Pics of this to follow lol

No it doesn't...and don't let anyone tell you otherwise...YOU are happy with it and THAT'S all that matters....it's not a competition. IMO it doesn't matter where you purchased it from or what it cost; so long as YOU are enjoying using it.

Hopefully, they have made a full recovery and are back on the bike?
