So did anyone manage a ride today? I had the day off and got 75km in. Mostly flat. Trying out a full carbon saddle, I think I need better padding in my shorts cos it's pretty unforgiving!

Interesting comment - when did you class yourself a weenie? is it after the first mod to lighten the bike?

So what's the next WW thing people will be doing to their bike? Mine is a a 2010 Record 11 speed derailleur swapping the back plate for a fibrelyte plate, change the 11 tooth jockey wheels to 10 tooth carbon wheels, swap the pulley bolts for ti bolts and run it as 10 speed. Oh and something else the Weeracerweenie is working on for me

Your classed as a weenie when you have a little notebook with 2decimal place weights for every component on your bike... Hahaha
