A bit of love for the road bike

I gave the Kinesis Racelight roadie a bit of love this morning, treating it to a full drivetrain degrease, clean and re-lube. I realised that I hadn’t actually ridden it since last year and that just won’t do! So far my rides in 2017 have either been on the borrowed bike in the Blue Mountains,…
