The wife's and mine leaning against a WW2 Y Station. This was HMS Ventnor but strangely it's an octagonal brick building on the downs which is pretty random.

First ride out on a brand new build. Seconds after the photo was taken the wind blew the bike over the top of the rock it was leaning on and and applied the first bit of patina to the frame.

Asposium, it is yes, i usually use Ultergra chainset on there, but was geared especially low for Torino-Nice, so 38/22 front and 11-36 rear, 11 speed road stuff with 10 speed XT cranks, and it worked really well for crawling up some of those Cols.

Despite liking to think of myself as a more creative photographer, and avoid this cliche, a surprising number of my photos fit into the genre :roll:

An not actually leaning, unless you consider it to be leaning on the bog that's holding it up:
