    A new pair of Planet X bib shorts. I find them much better than just shorts. The Planet X ones are comfy and at a little under £30, good value for money.

    A pair of Shimano QR skewers, from Bike Discount in Germany. I ordered alloy skewers, but what, in reality, does this mean? The ones that have arrived have steel shafts, and the only alloy bit seems to be the lever...
    Edit: @Heltor Chasca , you're knowledgeable about Shimano skewers, IIRC?

    Nice. I've had a Carradice bag for some years now and I love it.

    I bought a new gear cable from Wilkinson's yesterday to replace one that I ordered online which hasn't arrived yet, which I purchased to replace one that snapped in the gear lever.

  7. A Pannier rack


    For SWMBO's new bike!
    Mudguards are a sticking point though, at the moment
    (pick up tomorrow afternoon)


    It's not the bike I wanted to get her, but it's a fair 2nd choice

    Spare tube, and a pair of ergo-type grips. If they work out, I may spend a slice more and get real Ergons.

    Just punted these to replace my Boardman Hybrid pedals as I have 2 pairs of shoes now, both with spd cleats, one pair recessed, one pair race shoes.

    A shirt sleeved jersey (wishful thinking in this weather!), a long sleeved thermal jersey (went up a size so it can double up as a jacket) and a pair of MTB shorts with removable padded undershorts.
