    Yes current delta outbreak (thanks Gladys!) means that we are locked down. This entails working from home unless you are deemed an essential worker (doctors, police etc), homeschooling and limits on movement (5km radius from home) and limits on exercise (two hours per day). I think approximately half of Australia (population wise) is in lockdown, but different regions have different rules.

    Just snagged a NOS Cannondale Slate frame, no fork.
    I sold mine a couple years ago, but plan to build this one up with a normal rigid fork as a fat tire, quick geometry road bike.
    Will use the 650x42 wheel set I have for my 333, which I rarely use versus the more treaded 47mm wheels.
    Zero rush to build it up, but first order of business will be to figure out appropriate headset and fork.

    Interesting colour scheme on that C64 - is that a custom job?

    I don't know if this is how sevencyclist got it done, but you can custom configure a new C64 using the My Sixty4 programme:

    Rotor ALDHU carbons arrived to replace the INGRID (so many capital letters, so much shouty!) cranks on my C64:

    I thought the Ingrids (sorry, *shouty voice* INGRIDs) weíre well made until these showed up. They even pre-install a protective film FFS!

    Exactly. Plus the addition of a little back and forth in the design phase to add colors to the C64 lettering on the toptube and downtube. I am happy with how it came out!

    Tune Speedneedle saddle to replicate a 25+ year-old (and slightly creaky) Flite Evolution Carbon - which it does almost perfectly, btw:

    I hesitate to post, but three pair of trail-running shoes. Salomon Xa-Alpine, s/lab Ultra, and Pro/4. I have never been hit by a car offroad, and all my life-threatening bike crashes have been on non-technical singletrack (I go for a hike with my bike on genuinely technical singletrack). Result: the slowest fast half marathon of my life by about 40 min.

    Also, that DEXA scan (osteopenia at 51??) told me that I really want to do something weight bearing to supplement all those hours on the bike drinking Dr. Pepper..

    Cheers,

    I'm a sucker for that 90's look too. Nostalgia won.

    Are you comparing those three shoes, or keeping them all? I generally like Salomon products but I've not yet found a trail shoe in their line that feels right.

    Dear Dan,

    They have a quirky fit. The pro/4 is probably the most normal of the shoes-slim, not a lot of protection underfoot, but they grip the earth well and I don't get blisters in them. I kinda hate the toggle-lock lace system. They are excellent neutral trail racing shoes. Not suitable for backpacking, though I have used them for that task and lived to whine about it.

    The Ultras have exactly the same narrow fit, have more protection underfoot and more reinforcement on the upper, and the integrated scree cuff cuts off my circulation in early testing. The quicklaces work better, though. These are really nicely constructed..

    The alpines are a touch roomier in the forefoot and actually fit the best of the bunch. They ride just like the pro/4, though the sole is stiffer. They also have a built-in gaiter that would be great for slush. I will hang into them and use them this winter. They are too hot to wear for dry summer conditions, even up at 12,000ft.

    They are all just a touch narrow (or insufficiently curved) in the forefoot, which is a basic Salomon trait across all of their shoes and boots. I can wear them, they don't harm me, they're well made consumables, but I am not sad to take them off.

    Best Regards,

    Will
