New wheels and raised the pads 20mm just to test what happens to my stats . I'm liking it .
If the Empire rode bikes, that would be Darth Vader's TIE bike.
That's a serious looking weapon.
New set of wheels for my defy5!
Yet another Giant in the family. This one is a 2017 Escape 1.
My new Giant - a Toughroad SLR 0 - that replaced my previous Roam 2. I have chronic back and hip problems and I wasn't finding the Roam comfortable anymore (bought it before my injury). Cycling does help me and I find it much easier than walking or swimming.
I've gone from a large to a medium frame, ditched the suspension forks and the adjustable stem I fitted on the Roam in favour of a lighter bike with wider tyres (50mm vs 40mm) and carbon fork/seat post. I liked the look of it too!
One test ride convinced me - it's a faster, easier rolling bike than my Roam and more comfortable too. Even the 1x11 setup is proving a good thing for me, enough choice and flexibility for the cycling I do.
On the Roam I could manage (on a good day) about 4.5miles around the lanes with a stop halfway. My first ride out on the Toughroad was 7 miles with no stops and partly on a gravel track.
Chuffed to bits with it!
