Too bad you feel this way. Sometimes one needs to embrace new thoughts and see where it leeds him. if it doesn't work we will probably turned it back.

While I doubt djm's (tongue-in-cheek?) attribution of motive to Frankie-B, djm may be correct in predicted result. And even if after a little while, most people learn where to find stuff, and post, it will be incrementally a little more hassle and time expended, with no corresponding benefit from the new arrangement. viewtopic.php?f=7&t=112819#p963921

I will definitely continue to use it myself, but I fear that others will not. With this new arrangement it is kind of up and away in a loft, stowed away in a cellar, out from plain view. Time will tell.

There are some nice rolling rides around Flobecq if I remember correctly. Last year I lived in Zottegem and went exploring a few times around there.

Sunday afternoon ride around a local 35km loop here with a side trek up to a wind farm access road. 24% in a lot of places for the access road!

the hanger snapped, a bit of scratches on the frame, but nothing serious... My Keo cleats are a little worn also!

@DartanianX yes, some nice roads, but i took the big road from Ninove to Brakel to see the race on the Kluisberg (women), so pretty straight and boring to get there...

@Willier i saw the final 40k's at home, a bit bummed i only had 70km in the legs
