New Bike Feel (My Ride)

After a series of injuries in 2015, I decided to take a break out of the 2016 season. It's easy to simply decide to put up the white flag and stay unfit but that's not the promise I made to myself. 

The first obstacle was, of course, taking the bike out. It has been more than 6 months since the bike was last touched and it was due for a major overhaul. 

I was planning to do a full video of the process but being it my first time trying to do a full strip of the bike, I had so much hiccups, making the video was out of my mind. 

So a run through of the full set up:

And the tiny detail that makes it mine.

The long break gave me time to work on my career and company but now it's time to embark on more challenges.

Will be embarking on a training plan tomorrow. Let the games begin?
