I waited until the weather fot to -5 degrees before I took the CX bike out. There were a couple of flaws in the build that were discovered very quickly:
Saddle too high – quite normal
BB was loose – this surprised me, not like me to do that!
Front derailleur wouldn’t shift up – also out of character.
I’ll fix them all and go out again tomorrow.
The cycle by the way was slow slow slow. According to the Polar I only averaged 21km/k over 41km… I don’t believe that. I’m going to wear the GPS sensor tomorrow and get a proper measurement of the distance… 21km/k – that’s probably the slowest EVER average speed I’ve had on any bike in over a decade!
