Rode the Secteur this morning…. To sum up “skittish”!

Poor thing has had very little use! I dressed her with mudguards last night, dug out the old commuter candles and swapped the pedals in off the Sirius (borrowed originally from the Secteur before the coast to coast!)

I’m used to lazy bikes! Most of my bikes are lazy, but this is not. On no, FAR from it, let go of the bars to wipe the due from my eye, and I’m veering into traffic!

And gears? Who needs gears!? I kept forgetting to use them. More importantly, I really missed the security of that fixed wheel being my rear brake…

I’ll get used to her!
