Oops I believe I am the new member pedalspinner2019
Bought some downtube levers for the Falcon, just Suntour for the present time.
Whilst sat looking at this
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
A new slim saddle pack , I have a black one somewhere but cant find it so have been using a blue but on a black and green bike it was bugging me , no doubt I will find my black one now I have bought another.
Shouldn't this be in the "things you've bought twice" thread?
Yesterday, bought some size 1 Northwave MTB shoes for my daughter (second hand) then popped to Halford's a picked up some SM-SH56 cleats.
Some new bar tape
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 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!
Absolute Black oval sub-compact (48-32) chainrings.
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.
2 new pairs of Shutt Velo bib shorts ready for the Spain trip. Bought my first pair last year and I am a convert.
Bit of a bumper few days New track pump, New set of Wahoo sensors a present from Mrs for my N+1 , new set of tyres and tubes for said N+1
pair of castelli longs (on offer) size small and they fit result
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 Decathlon's selection seems to have gone down-hill over the last few years IMO
It's been one of those weeks
New gear cables x2
New cable guide
Nail varnish (dropped the other)
New cable mount as for some reason the old one had gone sloppy
Oh and some t**t stole my garmin 520 from work and I work somewhere that really shouldn't happen. So now shopping for a new garmin / garmin alike.
