I have been a little pre preoccupied for the past week with various bit's and peaces from trying to source bicycles for customers that according to manufacturers cant be made, random illness and general madness so im taking 5 minutes to chill this weekend and sort stuff out. The weather has been pretty good the last few weeks and customers are beginning to come out of the wood work to find their new weapon of choice for the season so are the good times ahead of us for cycling ?. With the olympics in the UK in 2012 it should be a great year for sports in general but we need the weather as this changes more than just the chance of a ride in the sun but our moods and general attitudes. We are all so much happier when the sun is out all day and life just seems simplified in general so fingers crossed we have a 6 month stint of glorious weather in front of us, bright enough for car drivers to actually see us, so sunny that all the idiots who run red lights on their bikes will just chill and enjoy those few extra seconds in the sun, warm enough that getting ready in the morning isn't the standard sprint relay from bed to bathroom to wardrobe and as you get home the neighbours are sat in the garden with a cold beer for you after a long hot commute.
We have also had our Selle Italia test saddles delivered to run alongside our long standing Fizik range and they come in some very funky colours which the camera just doesn't do justice to.
