A New Arrival

Whilst convalescing from damaged ribs I’ve (slowly) been building up a new summer road bike.

I bought a new Scott Addict R2, removed the wheels, bars, stem, saddle and post and used my existing gear to replace with.  This meant I had to replace the outer cables as the white ones the bike came with would no longer match the bars, stem and saddle.  Easier said than done and took a few trips to the LBS!

      Still uncomfortable to sleep but other than that ok.

      Riding is only painful when I push hard, it then feels like a constant stitch, or perhaps I do actually have stitch 🙂

    Glad to hear you’re healing . . . not the easiest thing when it’s your ribs. At least you can get out on your bike, which is good 🙂
