MORE BIKE BLING............

THE LATEST BIKE BLING
A post or two ago I told you about my decision to upgrade the basic Sora groupset on my Tifosi audax/training bike. The plan was to replace the Sora with a 105 group. 


Well the moment that the 105 was fitted I just could not help myself. I looked at the bike and thought to myself  "what does it need now to finish the job properly?"


It came to me in a flash - A GOLD CHAIN- well not real gold of course but definitely a nice gold colour. My thinking was that it would blend in nicely with the Brooks honey coloured saddle and bar tape.
Just listen to what it say's on the box the chain was supplied in.....


'The gold colour of this chain makes it the ultimate fashion product, it's high grade brass coating offers a reliable protection against corrosion'.


I mean how could I resist?  The ultimate fashion product...!!   I just had to have one.


I don't know when I will be able to try out my ultimate fashion product equipped bike...the weather has been fithy again, with heavy rain and strong winds. This really is not my favourite time of year.


At the start of the year I had hoped that I would be able to reach a total cycling mileage this year of  10,000 miles. With all this bad weather it is becoming more and more obvious to me that I am going to fail to reach this target. With the few weeks that we have left this year I estimate that I will miss my goal by about 500+ miles.........Oh well...there is always next year!

It reminds me of the Regina Oro chains and clusters from the 70s!

Like the gold chain - my son's track bike has a Japanese kierin chain with screw in joining link; cost a fortune but looks fab and strong enough for ten times Chis Hoy
