Been feeling rough again, can’t bloody shake this cold! Didn’t go out at all this weekend, just stayed in with the sniffles and drank tea. I missed being out on my bike, and I missed the Big Build Day. I should probably eat more fruit, or something. Or any fruit.
Mr Toast had some bad news – his carbon Zaskar is sadly dead. It’s never been quite right, always creaking, and he’s tried numerous things to try and sort it. He eventually sent it back to be looked at…and they found out it had a manufacturing defect and was cracked. They couldn’t get a replacement, so he got a refund. And so ends his short-lived love affair with carbon – I think he’s going to wait for the manufacturing technology to become a bit more established. Taking bets on what hardtail frame he’ll go for next!
