2011 Race Equipment - Lezyne

A mystery box was just delivered by Rory Hitchens of Upgrade Bikes & Lezyne, and when I opened it up I was pretty excited to see a host of Lezyne shiny goodness for my race bikes :-)
Here's a a bit more detail of what race kit I chose from their staggering range and why (along with some pretty pictures of their elegant kit).

The Long Way Home - Making it all Worthwhile

The greatest commute in the world?
It had been almost three weeks of enforced time off the bike after separating my shoulder before I ventured back onto the MTB for a few gentle, short and slightly sore, commutes to work. However, when I left work on Thursday, the lure of the South Downs was too great.

So, here it is; Rob Dean finally has a blog.

This is a blog about me, endurance mountain bike rider Rob Dean. Given how much time I spend on my bike, at least 99% of it will be bicycle and bike based adventure related so, hopefully, if you're reading this you like bikes too.
