What have I bought for the bike today? 1000 x 1/8th ball bearings so I could service a single speed freewheel. Admittedly I only need about 90 for the service but the bearings are the same size you find in a typical freehub on a geared bike. Now I can set about replacing the bearings in one of those that's been playing up recently too.

As a thought, do you, or anyone remember the Tioga (floppy) 'Disc-Drive', that was campaigned very successfully by John Tomac, in the 90s?

KMC 'Quick-Link' pliers
I've got fed up of struggling to remove a chain, when the link is too tight

They are dead handy for speed as well. Lots less 'messy'. Mine separate and join.
I don't think they'll join, but pedal pressure is sufficient

I tried them earlier, when I got home from work.... one squeeze, instead of an indeterminate time spent trying to coerce it into separating
 
Two nine speed chains from Planet X Ordered on the 9 December finally arrived on the 21st Not planets fault .Held up at G P O some some where up north
My above mentioned 'Quick Link' pliers were only ordered on the Saturday & were there on Monday
Damned fine servce

I will state though, I miss their Worsborough shop
(the old 'Cycle-Promotions'/Allens of Barnsley premises)
 
Had to go into Wakefield this morning, to the Bank

As one of my front lights was playing up, & turning itself off at times, I decided to get another
(10 year old Smart 'Egg'??)


I was tempted by the 1000lumen Halfords own brand, but it seems that it's now discontinued, so ended up buying their 500

The only issue with it, is the silicone strap, due to the weight/balance of the light - it might rotate?

There is a separate mount available, which was enclosed with the '1000', but I'll have to buy separately now
