Yes, you remember correctly .... you must have an iron will to not get on your lovely new Mason and ride off into the sunsetOooh very nice. I think I remember, did you start a thread about the Pinarello and another option ? If it was then I said the Pinarello.

Out of interest what's your best time?Same one as every year:
To climb Snake Pass in under 20 minutes
I never achieve it but why should 2021 be any different?
You like me have a pretty casual and utilitarian attitude to cycling. If I'm in the mood and the weather isn't too horrible, I'll go for a ride. If I don't feel like it I won't. In 2020, by my standards I did a lot of miles in the summer. This year I will probably do less miles than last year. I'm not going to set myself a hard target, then force myself to ride just to hit that number. I probably did about 2,500 miles in 2020. 2,000-ish for 2021 would be nice, but I'm planning on spending more time drinking and socialising and that is going to take priority over clocking up miles just so I can say I've ridden x amount. Maintaining some level of fitness and a stable weight will do for me. Speed and distance is unimportant.I will never understand that.
I use the Kinder Velo HC strava segment (roughly the Royal Oak where the steep part starts and the top). Best time is 21.30. Really I've got zero chance unless I lost a lot of weight.Out of interest what's your best time?
Do you class the climb as the Kinder Velo Hill climb or is yours shorter/longer?
I've just checked and I last rode from the Glossop side was in 2015 It was whilst doing the 'High Peak Hog' sportive.My time was 26 mins.I did the first half in 09:49 so not sure what went wrong
