    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.

    Ok, Axiom rack taken back today and exchanged for a Topeak with higher clearance to fit with fenders (it's not as pretty, but hopefully works.) Fingers crossed!

    New wheels for the Mongoose.

    It has Alex Rims PC19's on it, but the freehub pawls are shot on the rear, which is also as kinky as a Tory peer. It's also going to need a new chain and cassette, and it just so happens that my new generic wheelset comes with a Shimano 8 speed cassette (12-32).

    So, when they come, off with the old, take the discs off, stick them and the cassette on the new ones, and down to the LBS for gear service, new chain and new cabling.

    I'm possibly investing too much in what is essentially a pub bike these days, but hey.

  8. Nothing for the bike, but I have just bought a Gibson Les Paul to keep me occupied while the swelling in me knee goes down

    Justinitus N+3... but working on that

    Bought the Giant Toughroad a baby brother, a 2018 Diverge E5 Sport. Fancied a drop bar bike for ages but couldn’t get comfy on anything due to back/nerve/arthritis issues... until I tried a Diverge :-)
  11. I ve no idea how many miles my wheels have done but in the two years Ive had them that bike has done 12,000 miles. I think the first year they were winter wheels but they came through winter better than the summer wheels and this year theyve been 99% used. So I figured out it was best to buy another set before my lejog attempt. So Ive orded some Hunts but folk tell me they are not the best when it comes to delivery :ohmy:

    Not the bike but for me. Set of Castelli arm warmers (though it may be a while til I use them looking at the forecast..) and 30 more SIS Go apple gels.

    Annoyingly I’m now working the next 6 Sunday days at work so no cycling club related shenanigans for me any time soon. I guess it’s back to the turbo/spin/road intervals.

    Thought I'd be doing the same but got the 520 working with a reset after shutting itself down on Sunday;will probably go the Wahoo route though if the Garmin has any more glitches.
