So I've splashed out and bought some new, narrower, slicks. APPARENTLY, according to the nice man in the bike shop, I don't need 38c width tyres and can actually take them down as narrow as 28c, so that's what I've gone for.
I'll let you know on Monday whether I can actually get them on my rims and whether I go any faster.
And in other news, Rapha have another sample sale coming up next weekend, next door to Condor Cycles. Hopefully I'll make it to this one and can find out whether reduced Rapha is within the price-range of us mortals.
Opening Times are:
Friday 30 January: 12am-8pm
Saturday 31 January: 10am-5pm
