    The Topeak rack and bag system is superb, I've used it on several bikes for years (2 bikes with fixed racks and a 'clamp on' beam rack) they will take standard panniers but the slide/click Topeak top bags are the nuts.

    Enjoy the Sempre Pro @BianchiVirgin. Had mine for a couple of years now and really enjoy it.

    They stopped making it for a bit, but demand has it back on this years catalogue.

    Well, the 2 bottles arrived today packed in a cheap, thin Jiffy bag with both bottles inside crushed. I would surmise poor handling by Royal Mail but hardly the best packaging to start with by Cyclestore. They’ve gone back.

    Cheers. It's a 2016 model. Brand new but heavily discounted. Matt black version. Unlike many, I'm not gone on the whole celeste color thing. With Ultegra.

    Funny you should say that. Mine happens to be Matte Black with Ultegra too.

    Collected earlier today and it looks great. Pics to follow if someone can guide me how to post, or from what platform is best.
    Also picked my 10 year old son a second hand Fuji hardtail. Should keep him going for a year or 3! Nice little bike and a lucky find. Spent a while adjusting a few things and swapping the bar for a smaller one.

    Oh, and forgot to say, I swapped the rather cheap looking FSA Gossamer brake calipers for slightly less cheap looking Ultegra ones picked up on t'interweb.
    FSA ones will be for sale imminently.

    The FSA Gossamer brakes aren’t too bad, but I did notice a big difference in swapping to Ultegra on mine. People always suggest that it’s down to the pads. I tried the Gossamers with the new pads, the Ultegra calipers with Gossamer pads and then Ultegra calipers with Ultegra pads and the latter were definitely the best performing.

    Or it'll open a new tab, where you can select and upload the files, then close that tab and click More Options on the original tab and the files will appear attached to the post. It's a very strange system and it may work in yet other ways in other browsers.

    Some new shoes, helmet, bibs and SS base layer. Got to love the end of season sales combined with British Cycling discount at CRC, Quidco and 0% PayPal Credit. I had the cash sitting there, but rude not to pay over 12 months on 0%. :smile:

    New leg warmers as I lost weight and the old ones now fall down! Then I saw some gloves I liked..... Then on my way to the checkout picked up some overshoes. I only went in for a new rear light, which I forgot :blush:
