    Justinitus Someone mention cake??

    Went to the shop to collect the rear wheel for the mtb and ended up ordering it a new stablemate, that will replace the Specialized Diverge.

    Then had to buy the wife a new jumper and some Mac lipsticks to calm her down.

    Slightly :surrender:

    Some 8nm Carbon blades for my Look Keo Pedals as I was struggling to get my right foot out of the right side with the standard ones. Also some small lights for commuting, just to make me a bit more visible.

    Thule 943 tow bar carrier.

    Old dumb plum here hacksawed part of the rear bumper to get access to the 7 pin plug, to then realise it’s on a pivot and rotates down.

  8. Not for the bike, for MEEEEE !!!!

    My old cycling helmet lining is past it, and the company have stopped making linings for that particular lid.

    So I've bought a new hat, it was a choice between a Kask Mojito or a Catlike Whisper..............and the Catlike should be with me by the weekend.

    Another handlebar bag. Well, you can never have too many, can you?

    For me, but to use on the bike, my first set of padded shorts. I needed new shorts, so decided to try getting some mtb shorts with padded underpants. Judging by what I read here, I have been extremely lucky, as I haven't had any problems with my undercarriage despite never having used any padded shorts, however, having tried the padding for the first time today I can understand why they are so popular, it is like sitting on a cloud. :blush:

    Ordered some Crank Brothers Stamp 1 flat pedals in very unadventurous black, ready for the new bike - which is a lovely burnt orange. I like grey pedals but no one makes decent grey composite pedals now.

    A pair of 32mm GP 4 Season tyres just in case, as my Vittoria Voyager Hypers are starting to get a bit worn and are no longer available in that size.
