    After my front dyno wheel arrived and was fitted I can't help but notice the black bladed spokes on the rear wheel. It upsets me so much I have ordered a rear wheel to match the Mavic rim and round shiny spokes.............tube and tyre as well.

  4. I picked up a new Endura F260 jersey and matching mitts today I'd seen in the Rutland Cycles sale. Lol when I saw them mid week I thought I might have a chance to wear them soon. That cursed it, the weather has went back to normal now :rolleyes:

    Swapped the supplied Contis on my new Attain for Gatorskins as it'll spend its life on winter and commuting duty. They were a SOB to get fitted and are noticeably stiffer and more rigid. Hope I never get a puncture!

    Not today, but was in Decathlon last Friday and acquired a very nice jersey in the clearance.

    Will go spiffingly well with my MTB capris.

    A rear light for the pannier rack, instead of the wibbly wobbly one hanging off the bag

    Ordered today from Planet X - £30 gift voucher with free helmet, then used said voucher to buy two Schwalbe X-One Allround tyres and two sets of EBC brake pads to fit Tektro Mira and paid the difference.

    Not a bad shop as I’ll get the helmet for half price (the other half being the P&P I’ve paid).

    There was a bit of a faff as the price of the helmet wasn’t deducted from the total with the gift voucher so contacted Planet X and they’re refunding the price of the helmet. They were very helpful and relatively quick to respond (as it was lunchtime).
