Dave Hinde do not like to talk to their customers in person, preferring them to correspond via email. On many occasions where I have contacted the shop, the staff have for the most part been quite rude. This was especially true of a guy called 'Howard'. However, Howard did provide me with some advice - he suggested it is not a good idea to order from Dave Hinde and said that he would not. Foolish or not, I will take that piece of advice from an idiot. Dave Hinde emails were interesting - on Monday I was informed my wheel had left the factory, on Friday was informed it was awaiting collection from a courier. It currently appears that my wheel will arrive 3 weeks after I had paid for it. Dave Hinde sucks!
With my road bike still residing at a local bike shop (with a as yet un-tested dynamo hub), I will continue with blogging about my training. I rode a few relatively short rides again this week. Each of my route GPX tracks are presented below.
