Finally got some inner tubes, so i can get my wheels on! Very happy to get them off eBay for less than half normal price and they've only covered 150 miles...

Took it out for a ride tonight, and apart from the excessive sidewinds that we like to get off the sea up here....it was so much quicker up to speed and holding speed!

Very happy...

    Nice Wheels.

    Can't you mount the pump under/next to one of the bottle cages?

    I might see if it'll fit under the stem?

    I thought the seatpost was an odd spot, but under the stem?! Must be a northern thing! Get some co2 cartridges, don't take up much room. Genuine inovations do some good holders for them.

    That aside, nice bike + nice wheels = 8)
    Road: Felt AR0, Di2

    TT: PX Exocet Sold because it was like a sail in the wind (sh*t)

    Wow, you really are a newbie.

    The 2 holes on the plastic clip that you have so elegantly put zip-ties through just *might* be the same distance apart as your bottle cage bolts.

    Hint: try it.

    Why do you store your mattress outside? Is it to protect the bike from the house or vice versa?
    When a cyclist has a disagreement with a car; it's not who's right, it's who's left.

    .....but make sure the pump bracket is fitted UNDER the bottle cage, might have trouble removing the bottle otherwise :wink:
