    A set of two rear guards. One to fit to the front with a bridge (and cut down) so I can have a long guard up front and the rear to fit as normal.

    Just need to put my 32c gatorskins back on to replace the 25c BTwins which I found too narrow but worked with previous guards.

    I hope it's not the one I sold on eBay.

    If it was and had I known it was you, I would have given a discount

    Some cables and bar ends to complete all the parts needed to convert from drops to flat-ish bars in an attempt to cure the numb thumb and forefinger on my daily commute.
    Typically though, it was so cold this morning, I couldn't feel any of my digits. :ohmy:.

    Thanks for the heads-up ColinJ, I bought 2 sets this morning and for what they are they’re excellent value! Bought one set in lime/orange as a spare rear light for the Toughroad and the front light fits nicely on top of my Kask Mojito helmet. The other set in pink/blue is for my newly acquired but previously unloved Dahon Curve (aka Clown Force One... as it came with a humongous honk honk horn on it!) that I’m currently rebuilding for guest/town use.

    Screwfix have a pack of 2 x CR2032 batteries reduced to 49p at the moment so I got a couple of packs on my way home for spares.

    Two pairs of Aztec V-Brake Plus inserts. Winter riding takes it's toll.
    Had a mechanical on Sunday, chain came off and jammed off the smallest cog. Struggled to keep bike upright whilst removing back wheel to free it. Two cyclists went past ignoring my plight. Anyway with all my pushing and pulling I must have cocked up the rear brake and one side was rubbing all the way home. I thought I was just tired :wacko: Upshot was all pads nearing their limit so new pads all round.

    A new bell.

    Since a lot of my runs are on the canal, not having one is a problem.

    Not as big a problem as extending dog leads though.

    Or those Carbon poles that seem to reach across the canal and into the next County.

    It’s a slippery slope now!

    Started with that and now have numerous Silca items. None of them anything but top quality.
