Rat-A-Tat-Tat

Just so you know, that godawful noise as I pass you is not my knees about to explode, it’s my commuter bike. I have destroyed another Truvativ bottom bracket. This isn’t a good thing – this one’s only six months old. I’d love to claim that it was the result of my raw, explosive sprinting power and brute strength, but the sad truth is that it’s probably my frame whih needs the bottom bracket cups facing. The entire drivechain needs replacing, so I think that there’s going to be some TLC spent on the bike before it heads into winter…

A few months ago I was contacted by some guys interested in beasting themselves over the Cape Epic route. They’ve been keeping a blog of their preparations. Check it out here. I’d hoped to be riding there again, but it’s not going to happy this year and as there’s so many other great places in the world to ride, I think I’m going to focus on looking for a new international challenge.
