A while back I decided to put a Brooks Swift Titan saddle on my soon-to-be built Litespeed Vortex. I just was a bit hesitant about the color but at long last I decided on an easy black. I also ordered a matching set of bar tape in leather. This will surely add some comfort to the steering. The Brooks saddle must be among the most comfortable around although it takes a while to bed in and it also weighs in rather heavily at 390 grammes. But I am confident it will be a valuable asset to my road bike.
It was sunny but cold when I rode out late in the afternoon and I managed to get a good ride in. My heartrate was lower than it had been on comparative rides last week and also my shoulder seemed to be less painful. Thanks no doubt to the TLC applied by my kine and his young apprentice, who gave me a good massage yesterday evening.
With an average temperature of 3 degrees C I arrived just after dark. I noticed my tail light needed batteries so I changed those as soon as I got home. Safety is primordial when riding at dusk or in the dark and it is better to be safe than to be sorry.
