@DCLane that looks like a nice one , although they are a bit heavier than others , I like them .
I ordered their slightly deeper rims a the start of the week. My mate says Hunts delivery is poor and they're constantly delaying how did you find it?
I went for the tubeless fit a few friends of mine are tubeless including a former national vet champ and I have a tubeless disc which I've been happy with (a bit of a mess but then fit and forget). My only worry on a road bike is because I'm getting no p'tures I leave them on a tad too long beyond that I can't see an issue.
The first of my edge-mount out front stem mounts arrived today, this one was for the Roubaix. Fitted in minutes but still have some time to wait until the Hammerhead Karoo arrives to sit on it I wish I'd bitten the bullet and ordered it a bit earlier but you never know with these things. Ordered a longer mount for the Bianchi so I can fit it to the lower 2 stem bolts for a slightly more aero setup
Delivered the day after i ordered them, good communication with them, can't fault the company, am still deciding what way to go, but tubeless is looking good,
Ordered a pair of problem solvers v brake travel agents.
I'm going back to my trusty drop bars as I just don't like the flat ones but I need to keep the v brakes so I can stop the bloody thing. My 11 year old daughter has stronger hands than me atm.
Ordered a joe blow 2 track pump,1 pair of woolie boolie socks.
2x Blackburn Mars rear light. £2.99 each delivered from Tredz, absolute bargain!
Not bought exactly but shipped it off down the road for a shock and fork service. Will have it back in a few a days.
A clearance saddle bag for the Tern, 2 x Elite stealth black bottle cages and a multi tool for the Diverge. All from Merlin and despatched with tracking details within an hour.
2 x Camelback Podium Dirt bottles (with the rubber caps) in smoke stealth from Cyclestore.
Need a mini pump for the Diverge, but still undecided. Feel a trip over to Avon Valley Cyclery for a gander is in order!
I don't know if it really makes much difference but when Ultegra R8000 came out I upgraded my crank to a 4 bolt 172.5mm 6800 cranks at a decent price to make the cranks on all my bikes the same length. The crank I got was a 52/36 perfect for round here but my idea was that Id swap the rings for a 50/34 if any big rides came along. I bought the 34t ages ago but only just got round to getting the 50t tonight. I ordered a new chain too (the cassette is only a few 100 miles old so should be OK). So I should be good to swap it over when they arrive, if not I'll swap my old 175mm 6700 (50/34) crank back in.
A set of open pro on tiagra 36 spokes from Rose bikes for my latest build for the bloater that I am
Yesterday my new Carradice bar bag arrived. I already have the klik fit mounting in place so I am ready to go.
,,,but I may have been pricing up a new bike build.
Going to collect my new Bianchi Sempre Pro on Saturday morning. Looking forward to that. Shop phoned me today. "Where would you like the bike delivering to? It's all packed and ready". Me "eh?. I'm collecting. I don't want it posted. I only queried posting in case I couldn't make it on Saturday". Them "Oh....mutter mutter...unbox....see you Saturday......".
That's pretty exciting! Looking forward to pics
I received and fitted my second edge-mount today, this time for the Bianchi I'm expecting the Karoo sometime in April
Got to admit I love the SuperZero bar and stem, super comfy and they certainly look the part
