    Decided our existing locks are woefully Inadequate for ebikes so just bit the bullet and went to Halfords and brought myself a Magnum cable lock, 13mm thick wire rope and a hoofing great lock mechanism. Size wont bother me, it can sit in my rucksack, particularly when commuting starts soon. £40...
    My wife brought the smaller version, her bike is less visible to the public in the school she works at.

    Roval cl50 wheelset, a pair of gp5000 tl and a pair of Ultegra 6800 callipers because my fsa callipers won’t open wide enough for the new rims

    Bike will look great :smile:

    I have purchased (click @ collect) the Garmin Varia RTL510 radar tail light, £119.00 from Halfords. Now all I have to decide is which Garmin cycle computer I am going to pair with it. This is going to be an expensive double purchase.

    Today, I bought my bike 2 presents and also 1 for me.

    For the bike : A Wahoo ELEMNT & Some Garmin Vector 3 Pedals.

    For me : New Cycling sunglasses.

    On Saturday I will have to get new shoes to go with the new pedals as I currently ride with SPD cleats and the new pedals will require Look Keo ones.

  5. Bought a brand new Airbone copy pump from a friend who had accidentally ordered 3 somehow

    He brought it round....along with my mini pump that I had been searching for and had bought the 'airbone' to replace - I'd forgotten I'd lent it him! :biggrin:

    Nevermind, the new one is dinky and light

    Got a Garmin 130 cycle computer to accompany my Varia RTL510 radar tail light (see above) Got it on ebay, (new unused) for £106.00 inc. Look forward to receiving it, if it’s as good a deal as it looks I shall be a happy bunny. ^_^

    Thule velocompact 925. Not really for the bikes, more for the van to transport the bikes I guess

    Don't forget to check the valves before you try to inflate them.

    Bit of XTR bling. Also some stand off hex spacers to mount the mudguards GR013106.jpg GR013104.jpg GR013103.jpg GR013102.jpg and make them look better.

    After a beer I 'accidentally' bought a new set of Hunt wheels with a dynamo hub. Now I'm waiting impatiently for them to arrive.
