“This is an ultra rare titanium bottom bracket from the mid to late 90′s from small boutique CNC parts builder Bruce Boone … the centre section of the spindle was cut in a twisty corkscrew like fashion, which made for an unimaginably stiff and strong bottom bracket while retaining low weight. It features lockrings for both the drive side and non drive side, which is great for chainline adjustability.”
So I’m over in NYC for work again. Already had a few rides in with #5thnyc and #5thldn Matt who’s over here also putting in design work. Getting up at 4 in the morning to watch the guys race in the Grant’s tomb crit on saturday was awesome but mad cold. While I left London’s +15c on thursday New York is still stuck in the 0′s. Too cold to get the gloves off for iphone snaps so there’s only a handfull of photos from that race. When the crit was over and done with we all rode 9W up to piermont and back. Some proper headwind hammering with Dave saw us pretty satisfied with a donut sit down until the legs started responding to orders again. Dave only had one boiled egg though. The scot has started to assimilate with the American lifestyle and gone on a diet. With the results he’s had in the first few races this season it seems to do him good.
Sunday gave us some sweet sunny +10′s so me and Matto headed out for some recovery/food sightseeing along the Hudson up to Nyack and back. When I lived over here we didnt really know about river road and we mostly rode our trackbikes up and down 9w. So I still take a lot of pleasure in hammering up the rolling climbs along the hudson and the slightly brutal ending up alpine hill. So enjoy some random iphone snaps from me and Matto and holla if you are a new yorker and see us out there. Click Read more to see all photos.
