The benefits of Belt Drive…

The first weekend of bike cleaning post the weekly towpath commute. Another thing I’d forgotten, just how dirty tow paths make bikes!

A few piccies of my bike post jet washing, but as predicted the low maintenance qualities I designed in meant the cleaning chore took 10 minutes, not the couple of hours of scrubbing, degreasing and lubing of a “normal” bike!

And here she is in all her glory ready for the weeks abuse down the cut.

All I have to do now is fit some new tryes, which are being delivered this afternoon. The Continental semi slicks fitted are ok but I need the puncture resistance that Schwalbe  Marathon Plus tyres offer. This tyre from Wiggle seems to fit the bill!

I’ll be fitting those after I come back from watching the Rugby at Old Halesonians this afternoon.

Have a great weekend folks!
