Bought some T400 pedals from Halfords ebay. Code PURE20 gets 20% off atm. Only got a bike at the weekend but I'm already looking for stuff for it lol.

Bit of an expensive day !

More for me than the bike, but new prescrption transition lenses from RX Sport to go in my Oakley frames as the previous set have become badly scratched over the past 4 years.

The dogs chew toy
A few bits and bobs over the last few days...
2 Zefal Classic bottle cages.
DHB bib shorts. Tried them. Damn they're comfy unlike that decathlon crap.
An Iwanson gauge to measure rim wear.
Some alloy plate. I'm refining my rear light mount and may make a better finished bottle cage mount adapter.
A set of metal/wood files. Handy for the DIY things above.
An Irwin vice...as above.

Jagwire gear cables. The Boardman Pro FS has had the cables in over 3 years. Decided its time to change the rear. Worn outer thats patched with electrical tape. Still shifts fine, but its due a change. Rear gear is mostly exposed cable, and is fine.
 
Looking into Deore XT used bits for my Raleigh Sojourn project. Need to straighten the frame. But I saw @biggs682 s' Koga-Miyata, which appears to have a similar frame, and the Deore XT looked pretty good on that. The Sojourn came with pretty basic Shimano derailleurs and crank on it, at least in the States. I think cranks and bottom bracket may be outboard bearings in that group, so that'll be a new one on me.

If it works as well as it did on the Koga then you will be fine
 
That's rather what I'm thinking. Deore XT is always a good bet. I think the bicycle came with lower end Shimano group when it came out some years ago, and it seemed to be the main criticism beside the weight of the bicycle. Well, it's a tourer, so I'm bound to make it heavier anyway. Disc brakes will be nice, once I dial them in. There will be a lot of moving parts to this build. Literally.
