    That rear frame bag might be handy.

    it's handier than it looks, as it's been shot incorrectly installed. there is a bit that folds over the top tube, which gives you an extra little pocket which is easily accessed on or off the bike.

    mr paul is right about the socks, this year's are better than last years too.

    any gen on the bib shorts? I'm a bit light on summer gear, but the fit of their winter longs was bizarre....

    I'll get the computer, glasses, gillet.... :lol

    The computer I bought last year for a fiver outlasted the sigma computer that cost me £36. In fact, the computer from aldi is as good as new.

    No cycling shirts this year though.

    Aren't plastic tyre levers liable to break easily ?

    I don't think they had them last year, I think I will get a couple of those next week. I got the bib long last year and they have been excellent value, used them all winter and they are still good for another winter and more.

    I've had one for a couple of years now - been quite impressed with it! And folds up very small into its own little pocket...

    I was amused that the first thing to appear under cycling stuff was an air conditioning unit. Not necessary for British summers, surely?

    They have already done the bike stuff here, I always keep a look out for anything I might need, but you do have to be careful with sizing.
