Four sets of Race Matrix pads for my MTB. Down to my last two spare pads that I carry in my backpack. Wet gritty weather can make them vanish in an instant.

New Ultegea R8000 SPD SL pedals arrived today. Fitted and cleats fitted. Test ride tomorrow. Shimano must be making a fortune on stuff like this. No way is there £100 in those pedals. Anyway.
Had a rummage at the Keo basic pedals. Not much to them either.

After 2 weeks of no riding, I finally got out on the mountain bike and tried out the new Halo wheelset. They've transformed the usually nimble little 26er into a brute. The bike takes a little more effort to get up to speed but then it thunders along the flats, ploughs through gravel and descents feel amazing.
But....

Within half an hour on the bike I had convinced myself that I ought to have a second wheelset more befitting for the cx frame, something for light duties, cx, road, gravel and keep the Halos for trails, tours and winter wheels. This is a plan I've been hatching for some time, in order to keep the bike collection down to two. So when I got home I did the only responsible thing and ordered this.

Hand-built wheelset:
26" Mavic xm719 rims
Shimano XT disk hubs
Black Halo Aura 2mm plain gauge spokes
160mm XT rotors.

And for the rack.

1 seat post clamp with rack mounting
1 Blackburn 230mm QR skewer for rear rack
1 set Green Halo Hex hex squewers

Seems there's a rush on tyres at the moment, in the end I opted for 26 x 2.3" Continental Mountain King 3 tyres. Quite happy with the choice and price considering what was available.

This week, I have variously purchased:
Full set of Shimano MTB cables.
2 pairs of Ergon grips.
Blue ty-raps for re-installing the Cateye, once I've repaired it...
Set of ST-EF65-9 2-finger (V-brake only) brake-shifters for the Trek. the 4-finger versions will then be going on the Scott, as they can be set for other brake types too.
