Post race bike checks

Hi Guy's



I'm sure you've all been busy cleaning your bikes down after todays wet TTT Laughing

I've just done ours and thought I'd post a few thoughts for you to check bounce



Tyres:

After any wet ride its worthwhile to check the tyres for those pesky little bits of flint and glass that embed themselves into your precious rubber, I find a small pointed implement is ok to remove these sunny



Frame:

Its worth checking that your frame hasn't filled up with water, I poured over 1/2 a cup out of mine, after removing the seatpost, tip the bike upside down and pour it over your kitchen floor Evil or Very Mad



Chain:

Wipe down with the best white tea towel and leave to dry, then re-lube after a few hours jocolor



Luke and Claire have the times today and I'm sure they will post on here soon Sleep



Many thanks to Andy for timekeeping today, I hope you managed to get back OK and also to Luke for signing the course and then pushing off with Chris Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven



Cheers

Tony cheers
