A workstand, for bike repairs. Can't imagine how I did it before.

I've even started fine-tuning my mudguards.

Don't be without.

I want one - blooming 20 years biking, and still don't have one, despite having all the tools.....

I really wish I went to the car boot sale where these people have Leica rangefinders for 50p, and amazing bike components for tuppence.

And I wish that when I did, I arrived before gbb xx(

Ode to a workstand
===============
With my hands so oiled and grubby
I toiled on through the night
On my steed held aloft and ready
On a metal tree ready for the fight

The brake pads teased my fingers
My forearms and my brain
The occasionaly slip would sting me
But cause no significant pain

The clock arms tick so swiftly
Already eleven twenty-nine
A metal angel of the night delivered from wiggle
For eighty nine pounds, ninety-nine
