    You can either replace the outer cable, which involves removing bar tape,
    Or do what i did and just tape the outer together, she ran it like that until the bar tape was buggered, then we replaced the lot.

    Got a message from NoBeer last night, they’ve already been removed πŸ™‚ So that problem doesn’t exist anyway.

    Thanks for the pic though πŸ™‚

    Bike works a treat πŸ™‚

    It’s now assumed the position it’s going to spend most of it’s time.

    Works like a treat, lovely bike and a credit to the previous owner on here πŸ™‚

    I’ve fitted a different wheel and the gears are not quite 100% despite having a fiddle with the adjuster so may need to loosen it off and re-do. It’s only 1-2 gears but it’s the gears i actually want to use on Zwift LOL.

    Zwift race doesn’t give a true representation of the event, not sure how so few were in the end results, we had 20 in C LOL. I finished 6th i think but even Zwift companion isn’t showing it… Race started pretty well with a 25 mins warm up at a decent pace, then sat in the lead group until 19 mins in and a couple of Cs were ridiculous, one of them averaging 4.5w/kg LOL… seriously. But they pulled away from us and left a group of 2, me and 1 bloke, we did a lap and a guy we’d dropped caught us at an ideal moment as i’d lost my riding mates wheel by 3s and he towed me back in. 5km to go on the layout it’s a 3-4% drag, i lost their wheel there and didn’t power on for it, i was cooked. Cruised to the end for a result.
    My power and performances are FAR from inspiring me at the moment, but all i can do it train, diet and train some more…I’m getting better slowly…. But i’m a chunk away from my best days.

    Glad you like it Weeksy, and that it finally arrived after yesterdays hilarity 🙄🤣

    Anything specific i need to know on Tubeless with CX stuff then fellas ?

    The tyres currently on are none tubeless, but i can certainly get some before April next year. I’ll likely go Gorilla Tape πŸ˜‰ Yeah i know i know…

    Any pitfalls etc ?

    Or would you just get something fairly sturdy but non tubeless and take a couple of tubes ?
