    I have ordered a new set of suspension forks, rear rack, rack bag, baggy shorts and a new Jersey. The mrs hasn’t got a clue and she’s sitting next to me reading her book lol

  8. Fitted an out front stem mount for the Garmin, like this but in black.,

    Trouble is the 13mm spacers are made from some form of plastic, so when you tighten the stem bolts the spacer just gets crushed and it won't tighten enough to be safe :cursing: Or at least if you get it to a stage that feels OK the mount is lying funny because of the spacers or so mangled.

    Had to take it back off to have a safe ride, but for what it cost I'll keep it and find an alternative spacer in stainless so I can safely refit it.

    I've just finally ordered some Ortlieb Bike Packer Plus panniers. Quite extravagant but they should do what I want and last a lifetime!

    Lidl have got cycling stuff on promotion this week, so I pushed out the boat and bought a £10 pair of Crivit pannier bags and a £4 pair of cycling gloves. Their track pumps are cheap as chips but I've already got one that's still going strong.

    New set of legwear today; the previous shorts i bought were mountain bike shorts(only ones decathlon had in and I needed some quickly) I've bought some bib tights this time to see how they are :smile: Decathlon's selection seems to have gone down-hill over the last few years IMO
