Summary of the Weekend

Friday was one of those days where I cycled to work. Having meetings starting late means I can have breakfast leisurely before making my way out.

Usual fare at a nearby eatery.

A ride over the weekend to s neighbouring town. Missus was able to do so without experiencing any sharp pains. A milestone and confirmation that the swap to Schwalbe Marathons was the right move.

Till the next ride.

Thursday Dinner Ride

Came home from work early on Thursday and since Missus was not cooking, we rode out for our dinner at a Japanese restaurant a town away.

The staff there allowed us to park our Bs inside the restaurant. Am seeing more restaurants and eateries allowing folded bikes into their premises.

Tour Cycling Setup

Purchased a set of cloth panniers for a great discount in preparation for the possibility of an overseas tour cycling.

How it looks together with rhe T-Bag on front, the Rack Sack on the rack and panniers at the side.

Still considering if I should get the Ortlieb Front Rollers Classic, although they will hang even lower.

New Acquisition

Have always planned to get a Titanium Brompton or something that is sub-10kg in weight (Tyrell, Alex Mouton, etc) for speedier rides. So when someone was selling a 5-rides, less than a year old Titanium Brompton, and with a waiting period of 3 months for a brand new, I grabbed it after viewing.

Swapped out some stuff that came with it on my own and had more weight reduction parts installed at the distributor.

Took it out the night before to get some dinner.

It is a gorgeous piece of equipment. I was flying on 54T crank and Kojak tyres at less than 10kg.
