whats the "H" word ??
Don't do it.
Blimey - I'd forgotten buying Marathon + tyres (or have I just blanked them from my mind?)
They can definitely go on the list!
A Lance Armstrong race top. Since buying it all I've wanted to do is take drugs and chop off one of my plums.
It's great how we are all different, marathon plus tyres are one of my best buys.
Sadly I think the Brompton was a mistake.
Cheap brake blocks from Thailand.Only bought them there for convenience and having spares.I had brake failure one night and managed to rear end @Fnaar a moped at Aldgate @ 8mph one fateful night in 2014.Coupled with oil...wet and new rims on the back wheel.Front brake ineffective also...and worn.
Ditched them soon after and bough a bulk lot from ebay which actually work in the wet.
Purely out of curiosity in my search for n+1 and a Giant Defy owner what did you come up with as an alternative?
Most bikes I look at seem to be dull and do nothing for me.
Except tt bikes - now them I do like.
I like it too.
Possibly - I use chainsaw oil myself and don't much like the stickier (expensiver!) bike specific oil I've got on the bike shelf. Mainly the chain cleaner just seemed too much faff compared to mickling with a rag.
No. Finish Line Green user here.
Aldi overshoes, their kit is not the best, but some of it has served me well, they had a bad day when they designed the flimsy overshoe.
Never ever use it when they are gritting, it disintegrates faster than the wicked witch of the West.
I got a Bianchi Sempre Pro in Matte Black and then a Ridley Noah SL in Lotto Soudal colours. Stopped at those two and love them both in fairness, both to look at and also riding.
I like the chain cleaner things. Got mine from Lidl years ago. Easy to use and works well
