I woke to more horrific weather 1°c and pouring down. I'm surprised I managed 37miles, it was horrible, I was soaked to the bone after only 20mins. But my long long run of 40+ mile Saturdays is now over.

SRAM are on my 'shit list' now, for making terrible chains, 3 rides, 7 retentions 2 drops, and it's gone all wonky too.. nice job, SRAM, is there a product you *can* make? you certainly can't make chains, cranksets or brakes that last more than 18 seconds.

My hope of 3 chains being enough to last til 08 is looking unlikely.

Get a belt drive bike :)

The weather is too miserable for me to want to leave the house today.

Barnes you pussy.

Matt, you should get yourself a job as a product tester. :-)

If something could last for a few months with you, it will last forever with a normal person.........
