What have you bought for the bike today ?

  1. 1981 Schwinn Sports Tourer bought, not a light bicycle, but good for off road 700c as I figured it would be. Trekking bar, wide tires, low gearing all on the menu for this one. Shifting may go indexed. It will be a stunner, if I do say so myself.

    A pair of tanwall 1.95" City Jets for the Trek. It already has black ones on, these will transfer to the Claud Butler Uracco which I'm about to revamp to freehub 8-speed 11-34 for my son, who lives in Newquay, and needs all of that to get up the hills!

    DCLane Found in the Yorkshire hills ...

    A pair of Fulcrum 5 LG cross wheels for the Avanti winter bike via Wiggle's site on eBay. Look slightly used but should be fine for £60.

    A 90mm stem for the Felt. 110mm is a bit of a stretch for my now with my duff shoulder.

    ...and a set of DT Swiss wheels for the Felt. The OE wheels were ok, but required constant spoke adjustment and it was becoming tiresome. I replaced them with Fulcrums, but they've been disappointing and aren't much better in their thirst for regular spoke twiddling. So I've given in, blown the dust off my Amex card and bought some top drawer wheels. If that doesn't do it I'll get the bus.

    And before anyone asks, I'll demote the Fulcrums to the Pinnacle, which doesn't get so much use these days.

    Another speed sensor for my other wheelset. Got fed up with erratic speed/distance/power data from just using GPS. Now I need to get the chalk and tape out to measure the true circumference.

    New micro pump for me so it fits in my jersey pocket. I have one fitted on my bike next to bottle holder, but I will be removing it when my new bottle holders arrive.

    A red anodised cassette lock ring for the Felt. I know, I'm a shmuck.
