I've stolen my mate Ian's TT bike for the ToB, and while the concept of riding on TT bars is not foreign to me, it's been a while... and I've only done 1km at a time... not 14km. So today I did 45 odd km on the bike. There's a few minor tweaks to my position, a silly looking helmet and some massive wheels to slot into it, which will make it feel (and be) a touch faster, but mostly it felt good. It's a bike, you pedal it and it goes forwards.

It's certainly not a silver bullet for killing bunches, but it hummed along pretty nicely on the few times I opened up the legs (first turn out of Mordi, the Black Rock/Sandi hill).

Ideally I'd have the SRAM/Quark cranks on it for the TT, but axles and BBs mean (if I can jerry rig a TT garmin mount) I'll just have HR and speed to pace with.
