    Some self adhesive patches, the ones I have don't seem to stick very well.

    Just ordered a pair of wiggles Dhb spd shoes to go with the new clipless pedals my in laws got me for Christmas. About to jump into the world of clipless!

    Desperate for a bike fit too but can't afford it just now. Soon.

    My first foray into the clipless world happened on Sunday and I thought they were wonderful. I’ll be adding my other set of clipless pedals to the MTB and will be all clipless from now on.

    I did notice during my Sunday ride that I only ever seemed to be unclippling my left foot which is a bad habit to get into in case my weight is leaning the other way!

    A Shimano XT double 36-26 crankset, a front pull slx FD and a 2x11 slx shifter.
    I wanted a 170mm crankset but that was £130 so opted for the sale option 175mm at £79.

    Crc sent the 170!! :becool: well happy £128 the lot

    Tyres and tubes. I seem to have a thing for tyres, a bit like women and their shoes.

    First delivery of the year - SKS Raceblade Pro XL mudguards for the Giant Rapid flatbar
    Still to be delivered are some derailleur jockey wheels for the main comuter - having replaced the rest of the driveline just before Christmas, I thought I might just as well finish the job!

    A pair of Schwalbe Winter spiked tyres from Spa.
    At least the bike won't be grounded come the slippery weather.

  12. Nothing thanks to the LBS. I had a seized crank clamp bolt (seized after 2 weeks :ohmy:) they managed to drill it out. I didn't think they'd have a bolt short enough to replace it. I was right but they managed to manufacture one :okay:

    My second Topeak Alien II multi tool arrived today. No more swapping between bikes with my original multi tool so I don’t have to worry about forgetting it! You can guarantee the one time I forget, I’ll have a easily fixable problem if only I had a multi tool.

    Plus it only cost me £20 instead of the usual RRP of £40 from an eBay shop - it is brand new and came in the box.
