Now let's talk a little about my bike.

I allready have at home my new Continental Sprinter to glue.

I have purchased a black Lisardskin handlebar tape.

Now I'm looking for rear derailleur (Force or Red).

Pics later.

Hey paradawt,

Bike looks nice, but the rides look amazing. I'm not riding (much) at the moment due to injury so it's very nice to see such beautiful ride pictures.

Portugal has long been on my list of places to visit for a surfing trip, but now I might have to include a couple days for some bike rides.

Cheers!

Here I am again.

After an holiday week, I took a few laps to give.

Today I visit Monte Córdova, Senhora da Assunção - Santo Tirso, Oporto.

Image

Image

Image

On Monday I visit Serra da Penha - Guimarães - Braga.

Image

Image

Image

The latter is very close to a mythical stage of the Tour of Portugal known as Monte Farinha - Alto da Senhora da Graça (already presented here).

I'm waiting for news (rear derailleur and bottle cages).

Greetings from Portugal.

Hello.

I'll present the news for now.

I change my rear derailleur for a SRAM Force and put my old pulleys with 4g less.

SRAM Force with original pulleys:

SRAM Rival with new pulleys:

The difference between them:

Image

Change my bottlecages too, because old ones are broken:

I lost count of the bike's weight but there is still putting the lizardskin's tape.

Then I will weight it.
