I ride for fitness, enjoyment and an easier, less stressful commute.

On weekends I ride a custom (by Kennedy's Cycle Fit) road bike with Campag gear.

To commute I ride an SE Lager fixed (love the fixie!)

With the family I ride a Shogun hybrid.

I love to tinker with my bikes and won't go to a mechanic unless it's for something advanced or unfamiliar.

comment Are the Shimano BR650 brakes really Ultegra spec?
Actually, I rode on them today and they had plenty of stopping power, even in the wet. So maybe I was a little harsh earlier. I've also tried a set of Miche brake calipers and they had reach in between the standard and long reach Shimano brakes. They were pretty good.

I installed one of these yesterday! I'm not impressed... they're very spongy :( Definitely not as good as the 105s they replace, but at least I can align the pads properly.

My lenses are not polarised. I've ridden in all conditions from complete darkness to a bright sunny day and haven't had any problems.
