    Quad lock & universal phone bit thingy.

    Nearly pulled the trigger on a rixen and kaul klickfit bracket but thought I'd wait until the bike arrives to check the handlebar diameter.

    A 105 chainset for the Bianchi to replace the godawful FSA Gossamer thingy that was fitted to it. Also a Wheels Manufacturing BB for it too. The BB is FSA as well and has a grumbling bearing in it. Cranks are different diameters.

    Yesterday: an altura jersey, some of those natty reflector things you fit to spokes, longer laces for my MTB shoes and a small compass to put in the bar bag of the Chartres.

    A 32t oval chainring for my Specialized Epic, it had a round 30 as standard so ill see if i notice any difference.
    I needed more up front as the 30 is a bit small for the flat lands

    I bought some Wet and Dry lubricant the other day. Used the wet on yesterday’s ride and it seemed fine. I’ll have a closer look at the chain tomorrow.

    A version 2 piston for my Front Guide RS lever. Replaced the rear last year as it stuck in heat, but front was ok. I'll get it replaced now before we get any hot weather. Known fault that SRAM won't do anything about.

    £9 on a pair of mitts in Halfords.

    The pair I put somewhere safe at the end of last summer will probably turn up now.

    Ordered a set of Hunt xc weels for my Epic. £329 and they come with spares, spokes and valves. Bargain
    They get 10/10 in reviews and at a good price, and they look great too.. Might change the H... :whistle:
    I wanted carbon but there just too much for a care worker salary..

    Week 3 May delivery... I think i can just about wait that long.. Just

    My wife made an impulse purchase of the Aldi bike helmet and is very pleased with it.

    Bought a Sell SMP Trk for my Brompton. I love the saddle on my proper bike. Now to see if it works on the clown version.

    That's the one my wife switched to. She has one on her Roberts touring/ shopping bike. She persevered with the stock Brompton saddle for a while and said it was perfectly OK, but now has the TRK on her Brommie.
    ( her Brommie has been named " Badger" because it's Cream)
