Insurance & breakdown cover.

My home & contents insurance is due for renewal this month and Priviledge have reduced the amount of cover for higher value items (bikes in my case) so, having followed a couple of previous threads, I had a look at Aviva. Their premium insurance seems to provide a much higher level of at home cover and up to £2000 away from home cover. This would cover all my bikes, including the Spa Elan which is separately insured at the moment, so the increased premium will be more than negated by not needing to renew that.

Also I've decided to try out ETA Cycle Rescue in the hope that I never need it.

Wow, my workbench isn't that tidy, let alone the emergency kit...

Looking at the long range weather forecast, I broke down and bought myself a turbo. Just a dumb one, and with a few free trials (swift, trainer road), combined with BC and a few other workouts, I should be on track for my big rides this season.
 
A new 10 speed chain fitted this morning , the other worked ok with the new cassette but it was noisy, I was surprised at the difference when I laid them side by side, I didn't think it was that worn , ah well all working fine and buttery smooth and quite, I cant be doing with noisy transmission I like the only the sound of tyres on tarmac and my breathing panting for breath.

I have recently swapped chains too... my chain measuring thingy's (2 different makes) were saying nearly at 75% (11speed) however I was also surprised at the length new to old when laid side by side, however this was existing Shimano and a new FSA that I know wont last long
