    Handlebar mounting bracket for my garmin (car) satnav... we'll see how that goes - it has a bike mode!

    Remember not to hide it under your seat when you park up. Thieves will see the mount and definitely look there :wink:
    Short hairy legged roadie FCN 4 or 5 in my baggies.

    Felt F55 - 2007
    Specialized Singlecross - 2008

    I don't think I'd be able to hide it under the seat of my bicycle... It'll be coming with me wherever I go - I always have pockets/rucksack/panniers.

    I'm just interested to see a) how well the bike mode works and b) whether it falls off the mount when I cycle over a pothole...

    With that much luggage capacity your FCN must be massive! Stop shaving your legs and you could mix it up with the Bromptons!!

  • Hence the FCN 7...

    They don't seem to slow me down... but that list was an either/or. I rarely use a backpack for commuting.

    I remember it was said that Fignon lost the TDF to Lemond due to his pony tail; maybe you should be an 8?

    Perhaps it should be put to the FCN committee?

    I have also bought some stick on carbon patcheds where the D lock sometimes bounces against my lovely gold frame. I think they were £3.95

    Also bought some trausers for Yoga, as the the girls in my class look great so I can't let the male side down can I?

    Just ordered myself some tights from Foska...
  • Fenix LD20, and bike mount, impressive little light. Ironically with the clocks going back, I don't need to use it right now, but switched it on this morning just for the hell of it

  • Cateye Single shot+ and TL LD610 (rear) thats what I planned to buy then leave. What actually happened was that I got the above, then ordered a pair of Sanitni Winter bibs £110, Santini Jacket £150 and a Merino wool base layer. They have just phoned to say its all in, will be leaving work early to go and collect it all.

    Broke a Molar 2 hours after leaving the LBS, will be giving some Josef Mengele money to not hurt me on Friday morning :cry:

    Spent all that money and now cant ride as having cold air enter my mouth stops me in my tracks.

  • I have just given wiggle some more money

    * 1 of Endura Thermolite Tights w/o Pad
    * 1 of SealSkinz Mid Light Waterproof Socks
    * 1 of dhb Triple Lens Sunglasses (Smoke) (refer a friend :lol:)

    Also got a cheapo 21 led front light from the bay to match the two tesco torches

    Just got a park pcs10 the other day as well

    I really really want a pair of schwalbe marathon suprmes but I am trying to resist.

    Work keep giving me overtime so I keep using this as an excuse to the wife that it isn't budgeted money, so far so good :D

    Edit, also going to Edinburgh Bicycle Coop on Saturday to do a intensive cycle maintenance class :shock:

    Maxxis Swampthing 2.35 Dual Ply 42a SuperTacky (Front)
    Maxxis Swampthing 2.35 Dual Ply 60a MaxxPro (Rear)

    Going to run 30 psi front and back and see how it goes, dual ply so shouldn't get a snakebite. My only concern is the difference between 42a and 60a compound and if the rear tyre i chose will be suited for my routes. My trails are extremely muddy and damp so i will see how they fair.

    lifeline-spin-doc-dlx-ss07-med.jpg

    Almost half price :) , the reviews I've seen says it does the job.

    No more lifting my bikes up with my head under the seat while I adjust the gears :P

    Reveived the workstand a few days ago, anyone thinking about getting one, I can recommend it.

    Defo have my Spesh hardrock pro on it this weekend, used it for my commute tonight, slipping gears all over the place and stiff brakes :? , well , not used it for 6 months so I should have expected a few problems :shock:

    My new Blackburm 4 arrived to day at work, so is coming out to play for the ride home :D

    Little bit dissapointed that although it has 2 different fittings, it appears you have to unscrew part of it to then attach it to the second fitment.

    Was hoping for a fit and forget system of rack and seatpost on two different bikes, and then swap between them.

    +1. I bought that headset before I'd even gotten my new bike out of the garage. I just figured that at 10p it would be silly to leave it behind, even if it doesn't fit my bike (I still don't know if it does). It was worth it just to spend half an hour playing with the bearings.
