    ^_^ I agree wholeheartedly! This one is a local shop called Ernie's and there are about 4 of them, their smallest is right down the road from my work. It is better for my pocketbook too bad their biggest one is two towns over.

    I look on the bright side though. I don't think I could ever top what a former colleague did. Went out to buy some shoes and ended up buying a new house.......

    Handlebars arrived today [silver ritchey anatomics- they were only a tenner so if I don't like them I can always move them on], stem should arrive tmoz, a silver planet x cnc jobbie, also ten spuds from ebay.
    And today I finally ordered the last piece of the puzzle, a silver (see the theme here?) seat clamp, so all ready to build my new ride

    For the rider not the bikes.

    Was in that Laahnden yesterday and had time to spare so nipped in to the Rapha store to see what was left in the sale there and ended up with these two;

    Brevet insulated jacket and cross short sleeved jersey


    Also picked up a couple of their Camelback brevet bidons(that's three new ones after getting a Freebie one at Core Bike Show on Sunday(along with Hope mug,bottle opener and calendar plus an HT pedals t-shirt).

    SealSkinz Open-sole-neoprene Overshoes

    They were cheap and the Q&A made me chuckle

    Q : "Hello, I would like to ask is it sale in pair or like a single shoe cover?"

    A: "They come as a pair.
    Which is useful because most people who ride bikes tend to have two feet."

    :eek: People with one or zero feet cycle too! Bad sealskinz!

    Today's purchase was a Hoy rotating bell for the folding bike to replace the one I broke overusing it at RideLondon. Clamp diameter is 25.4mm in case it helps anyone.

    I don't think it was SealSkins who answered the question. I think it was member of the public - on CRC

    Thanks again for this @RealLeeHimself . Just bought the Giant City Pannier Bags from Tredz to go on the utility bike, and as these were £26.99, added a Topeak bracket for £4.99 to be able to switch the saddle pack between the other bikes. That took me over £30 spent that enabled me to use the Tredz spend over £30 & get £5 off using code TZESU5OFF offer. Which was nice.

    New wheels. DT Swiss, I forget the model off hand. Nice and light coming in at 1475g. Going to stick some continental gp4000 iis on them as well.
  13. Some lightly used 26" fenders for the Raleigh Project, at the bike co-op. I believe they are SKS.
