SRAM eTap wiring (being the second part of remodelling the Cervelo P3C)

In which I test (and implement) some alternative wiring possibilities for SRAM eTap gear shifters The SRAM eTap Aero groupset was released in 2015 with a version aimed at road bikes where the gear change controls were switches in the… Continue Reading →

New aerobar set up for the Cervelo P3C – Part 1

In which I do yet another bout of TT bike fettling, this time to address the front end clutter. The (possibly mad) plan for the P3C handlebar Some months ago, I’d bought a secondhand 3T Aduro base bar (the same… Continue Reading →

Astwood ’10’ 26/8/23

In which I suffer a series of bike crises before even leaving the house, and have a lacklustre performance. So as usual I started getting set up about an hour before I needed to set out for Astwood. When I… Continue Reading →

Looking ahead to the 2018 Duo Normand

After a fatality due to a collision between riders and another team’s following car a couple of years ago, a change in course was pretty much inevitable. In 2017, the teams’ following cars were taken off the course prior to… Continue Reading →

Norlond ’10’ F15/10 5/5/18

So now I’ve started, I’ll continue! This event was held on a spectacularly sunny and warm afternoon. I rode over to the HQ in Lidlington. This was a pleasant ride marred only by a puncture  just after riding through Ridgmont…. Continue Reading →
