The sun doth shine on a Brompton SL2

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday I was bemoaning the fact that I have been unable to use my SL2 due to rain (I don't use my beloved SL2 Raw Lacquer in rain) and today was dry.

It has been ages since I took the SL2 out in anger and I have missed the lower, sportier and firmer ride that one gets from the flat handlebar that is the S-Type.

I have missed the two speed a great deal. I have alluded to a desire to use the SL2 for all the BCW events. I am still convinced that it will help to give me a better time than last year. Without the hub gear I save almost a kilo in weight. The simplicity of only having two gears also appeals to me. At last years BWC by the second lap I was having difficulty selecting the correct gears for the the climbs. Mucking this up contributed (along with having big feet) to me kicking my chain off and then having to get off an try and put it back on.

I hope that it is dry over the weekend as I want to head out early either tomorrow or Sunday and photograph a few buildings that interest me.
