It’s been cold and wet enough this week to justify getting the winter boots out. My Shimano workhorses have to be some of the best biking kit I’ve ever bought in terms of value for money and function. If only they had toe studs they’d be the best thing going for cold weather riding. Not much else to report really other than the brakes on the Roadrat are driving me mad. Pretty much anything more than gentle power will pull the non-driveside forward in the track drop outs. I really need to either: ditch the Hope disc brakes for some v-brakes; get another set of chain tensioners; or get some bolt up QRs and stop complaining about this.
