Rolling through another year on two wheels!

Well that’s another year down rock stars. That went just a little too fast! Hope you all had a fantastic 2018 and got some decent miles in the legs and memories in the noggin. I knocked out few really memorable rides this year including a mind-clearing solo imperial century, my first ascent up the Hors Catégorie Mount Wellington and of course Sally’s Ride up in the North of Tasmania.

To finish off the year I treated the Kinesis Aithein to new cables and a 3T carbon bar. Once again there was a little bit of swearing involved to route the internal cables, but I think it was worth it.

With the Mavic  Ksyrium wheels it sits at 7.4kg (16.3lbs) including pedals and cages, not bad for an alloy frame. Shown above with the funky Roval 60’s off the Stealth she’s a little more portly at 7.65kg.

Finally, a huge thanks for reading and sticking around! When I write this stuff I never really know if anyone is actually going to read it, but I’ve been hitting the keyboard here at Tempo Cyclist for a number of years and the visitor count keeps increasing. So thanks to you and also a big shout out to the cycling superstars out there who continue to publish great content. To mention but a few…

I’m sure you already follow them all, but if not now is a good time to check them out! So that’s a wrap from me for 2018 down here in Tasmania. I look forward to many more miles and memories next year. Here’s to the next twelve months!

Anyone got some big cycling goals or events planned for 2019 yet?

    1. No plans of yet. Just going to ride when I can and enjoy. Time trialling is good “fun” competing against your own times. Have a great year!
