Richy also dropped off his new Scott Foil frameset and box of new parts for a build.
Saturday was fantastic weather so cracked on with the Foil build, all was going well but feeding the cables through the internal tubes when there is no internal guides is a pain in the arse. Just waiting for a Sram GXP Pressfit bb from Westys on Tuesday and I can get the chainset on and gears setup and she will be ready to roll. The Sram Force 11 speed groupset is lovely looking and he got a it a bargain price!
As of the Pilgrims I have the battery / wheels / headset / forks / bars / stem / saddle / seat post / mechs / shifters / brakes fitted so measured up the six di2 cable lengths I needed and ordered so they should be here by mid week. I will then wire all the di2 up so I can fit the bb/chainset as the Pilgrims is internal cabling as well. I have to fill and bleed the brakes yet and also waiting for a rotor to land.
The van also got its yearly Autoglym wax polish and the bushes in the gardens got a good hacking back as well.
Today was the NETT quads / National motorcross side car champs at Wooley Grange. Its a cold / windy place to start with, its was 9 degrees in the shelter and you could see your own breath for most of the morning. The race action was fantastic to watch inc loads of crashes. Blog to follow with some photos. More soon -
