@lacoon - great shots!

Springtime on Grosse Scheidegg looks amazing, haven't been up it with that snow still around :D

Yes it was indeed an amazing day. Grosse Scheidegg and Männlichen are open / have no snow on the road. I also could get up to Männlichen summit without snow or ice.

On the virtual road today, got to play around with a legend of the UK TT scene and Polish cycling Marcin Bialoblocki on our fit machine ahead of his further 10 and 25 record attempts and reclaim of the Polish Nats title :D Also a few little looks at what a dedicated personal mechanic can do to make a £10K frameset even cleaner :P

Yep, that basebar does have shifters under the inner-tube bartape. One of the most fun days I've had of looking at bikes rather than riding them.

World is so small. I didn't realise you have Yeovil connections :)
You guys set me up on this machine couple years ago when getting my S5 from you.

@wingguy, as you got chance to chat with the guy, how come Bialoblocki left the WT/Professional scene? Any personal/family issue?
He didn't look that bad.

Didn't ask specifically, but honestly the guy just loves TTing. Loves it. He really wants Polish Nationals again (and to beat the other big guys to get it) and to take more chunks out of the UK records - without Pro-Conti commitments he can tailor all his training for it. Don't think he's too keen on the life on the road and having a schedule set for you that comes with life in a bigger team.

Haha, we've already been notified. Lawsuit's in the mail :P

@chunkytfg: Keep going! It’s such a beautiful climb. From which side are you climbing? More pics please... and it’s a great excuse to take breaks.

And @lacoon: fantastic photos!
