    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.

    Hedgemonkey Upright and forwards, just.

    NE Derbyshire
    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.

    Thanks to @pjd57 and @ColinJ, a garden spray bottle. This one from Wilko, 8ltrs hand pressurised. Wasn't
    bought today but has been in use to clean two bikes. Really useful solution for those without an outside tap, plus provides a reasonable spray in those hard to get places. 8ltrs enough volume to clean two bikes, one so dirty it had tide marks!!!!

    An OXYLED rechargeable light set, model BL01 from Amazon.

    Haven't fitted them on either bike.
    They're officially Spares.

    Look decent.
    Look great for the discounted price my Mrs found them at. £8 .

    Edit to say they're back up to £13 but still good quality for the money.

    A set of old 1970s rubber block pedals for my 1970s Tracker project. Cow horn bars next.

    Scosche Rhythm+ HRM. I hate my chest strap so gone with this for use on forearm. It’s ANT+ for my Garmin and Bluetooth for linking to AppleTV for Zwift.

    Also bought an AppleTV 4K so I can relocate the AppleTV 4 to the garage for Zwifting.

    Love the AppleTV’s. Very good media player and cheapest way into Zwift on the big screen too.

    New fenders and a rear rack so that if it is a smidge warmer and keeps above freezing this coming week like the weatherman says I can start my new commute! I wanted silver but all the little LBS by my work stocked in my size was black, I'm sure they will still look nice.

    Ugh, so the rack has to go back today. The supports on it were too short, it must've been made for a bike with smaller wheels (you think the guy at the shop would've told me). Back to the store if I get a lunch break today...

    Innertubes. A screw went straight through the centre of my tire.
