We had a lovely few days away in Blackpool recently
The pair of us love walking along seaside promenades and we don’t worry about the weather .
I bet most people come back with bags of rock and kiss me quick hats .
If the above statement is true then i am not one of those people because i bought back two rather different pieces of steel instead .
The blue one is what i believe to be a W P Newton frame with track style rear dropouts with the added bonus of brake holes front & rear making this a very useable frame indeed , the other one is a Paul Donohue Cougar made with Reynolds 853 with stunning paintwork .
You have to love British seaside resorts
These ornate gate’s are one of my favourite set’s of gates I see on my various rides .
I also saw this very faint stonemasons circle on St James the Strong Church.
I have often thought about going up to Gayhurst and I was not disappointed at all .
These cow’s seemed quite happy to see my and my Hardisty .
I have finally found a Koga that is more my size .
And this is it .
It’s a 2007 – 2009 Signature model .
Built to take on the world.
I have been using it for commuting on this week and have clocked up 50miles .
But looking forward to doing quite a few more .
Today i bought a Ferrari Daytona 365 , how many others can say that ?
I must admit the red paintwork nearly put me off as it has a fair degree of patina but hey it’s better than fresh paint hiding a load of filler .
Ok so the beige interior needs a dusting .
The road test was a short affair around my palm and didn’t reveal any faults so i paid the sellers full asking price and walked away with a smile on my face .
I first discovered the Selle SMP range of saddles about 5 years ago .
And since then I reckon I have covered over 10,000 miles on them .
Most has been done on the pair of Lite 209’s that I have and then a fair bit on the Trk’s .
I have found them very comfortable and would certainly recommend them .
I was lucky enough to get this Don Farrell frame .
Which turned up yesterday .
Nice pencil thin stays .
And a proper headbadge
Well this week has seen the arrival of my latest new jacket , after trying products from Altura , Endura and Polarias i decide this time to go for a Proviz .
Why Proviz i hear you all shout , the main reason is i am fed up of watching the reflective panels slowly and surely peel off my last 3 or 4 jackets .
So when i asked Proviz i was told that they an integral part of the jacket not just an added extra and can’t peel off .
I am really impressed by the Nightrider 2 and how reflective it is . I am intending to use it on this weekend rides .
If you are in the market for a new jacket then look no further https://proviz.mention-me.com/m/ol/mu9ve-martin-biggs
