To say how integral cycling is to my daily life I’m always surprised how little I post about my bike. I’m lucky to be pretty content with its current set up which I’ve had for maybe five years. Never replaced a part just for the sake of it, only if bits have broken beyond repair or have worn out (chains, cogs, tyres).
