Cycling; What do you Ride?

Recommended Posts

Went out for a spin around Epping Forrest with some hill repeats on Mott Street and Lippits Hill so took a few pics. Road bike is a Surly Cross Check, maybe around 6-7 years old? Just before road discs were popular which might have been a mistake in hindsight 😂

Shimano 105 ten speed group, with a 9 speed xt rear derailleur. Trp CX-9 mini v-brakes are pretty good. Built the 32 spoke wheels myself with 105 hubs, DT Swiss RR465 rims and 25mm 4 seasons.

Pretty nippy actually with the guards and saddle bag removed, lighter than you would think.
