I'm off-the-scale colour-blind, and for years I thought my favourite colour was blue, but people (parents, siblings, colleagues, socio-economic-sexual partners) kept saying how purple my socks/shirts/jackets/everything was until I finally got the message.

I adore your bike.

It's definitely on the bluer side of purple - depending on the light, it can look more blue or more purple. Or blurple. ;D

All you need, now, phanta is a Burgos-BH Jersey or an EF-Education First one.

I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.

I like the Boardman. Nice shed too. And extra marks for pedal alignment. But no Marmite!

(it's okay, that's just a forum in-joke. Welcome!)

Yes. Yes, this really is a Cervelo TT bike with a Brooks saddle on it.
Let the piss-taking commence...

Flying banana. Well, it is a well-worn Brooks.

I was wondering whether the hammocking might be a good thing on a TT bike, because of the position on the bike.

My steel bike, in 'stealth' mode - awaiting new mudguards.  The first time I've ever ridden it without mudguards; definitely felt faster...  ;)

with 32mm Paselas (on DT Swiss RR440). Good rollers, and pretty comfy, esp @ lower psi (~70F/80R).

I'm not surprised. He's got his pump out and look at the size of it, phwoar! I don't think it passes the "Cornwall test" either.  :demon:

Haha.  ;D  Did it for me too, when I'd logged out.   I've moved the pics to my 'pro' flickr account.   They were on my recent free flickr account, for bike/forum stuff only, and I can only think flickr autodetected my gory/bloody knee & thigh photos content from a recent road interface, as something else.   :o  Either that or the Audax tag had another meaning.

Well guessed Jurek.  Photo is on google photos, so you may need to have signed in to that to see my photo.  I’ve not yet found the ideal hosting solution.

Hello Paul.
I did sign in, but still had the 'No Entry' logo appear on the screen.
