Had a nice weekend of cycling last week – took the Tarmac out for a 2 hour blast on Saturday (puncture and 50mph winds – ‘interesting’ conditions!), and then got my first ride of 2019 on the M5 CHR on Sunday.
I’ve been doing a few more updates to the CHR which I will hopefully write about soon – a new fork, lowered seat and everything just slightly more aggressive. It felt great, I really like the very laid back position. The new fork has lowered the front of the bike enough that vision is still pretty good (the old fork was way too tall), and the Sram R2C shifters are just absolutely fantastic. They work extremely well on the M5 tiny bars.
More to follow soon, but here’s a pic of the bike in the meantime. Note the really laid back seat, which gives more space in the cockpit. I’m still using the Fastback Double Century bags because it’s taking months to get the Angletech Aeropod bag – sheesh.
