    Sweet! I'm very tempted by that frame, but not seeing full build prices is a negative, and am not overly fond of the colours on offer. For how much do you reckon you can build it?

    Colours aren't great but the geo is near to perfect.

    I'm not scrimping on groupset so it's not gonna be mega cheap but di2 hydro should mean zero maintenance. Then got some bits floating about already. So maybe 2500 all in?

    I wanted a bowman pilgrim but doesn't take a rack and can't use a r2w voucher to buy it.

    Comms from Jure is very good - sometimes it takes a little while, but he does get back to you.

    I decided to buy some new tyres for my commuter, not that they need replacing, but when I need to probably early next year.

    Got 2 x GP 4 Seasons in 700 x 32c guise from Halfords for £45! That is around £20 cheaper than I usually buy them for. That was including a voucher code, BC discount code and paying with a work gift card.

    Bought one of these ZLK1OR-KEY-e1541066138841.jpg

    Since I do now do club runs etc, and not ever where is totally safe seems a good idea to have well a cafe lock.

    Ordered some clif bloks to see if they are as good as they are meant to be.

    That Rapha jersey up the thread turned up and is a keeper, nice fit, feels like it could deal with decent cold conditions with a base layer underneath.

    The Berk Saddle rocked up today as well - 78 grams!

    I'm hoping to get a custom decal to go on the central bridge bit, just need to find someone to make one.

    IF it's as comfy as reputed, I may order one for the CR1 - this is destined for the Foil I think, despite the Syncros stock carbon saddle being irritatingly comfortable.

    After a spout of spoke breaking a truing stand is on the to buy list, but know I should build one instead.

    It was for her dolls pram, needed a refurb. I would love to put some on my bike but I use it all year and all weathers. The cinelli cork gel I gave on has been there for four years now. Been unwrapped and back on a few times for maintenance but only now starting to deteriorate.

    Talking of bar tape I did a reverse wrap on my SS and I love it so clean, no tape and perfect lines when it's time I'm doing all my bike like it

    Not bought yet because I can't find any suitable design software that'll let me take my club kit and make t-shirts with the core design.

    For the SS I'm thinking of buying (which has drops but straight bar brakes fitted)

    £72 a pair in most places, £39.99 on PX

    Impressed with the previous years version that was a £45 bargain from Start fitness, so just nabbed the last small in the sale from alpine trek - over 7% TCB too.

    Castelli Endurance 2 bib shorts. New version of the Progetto2 pad too by looks of it, but seem to fit as well as the 1st edition so happy with that. Thigh material looks to be a bit more breathable, almost a dense mesh. Hot out, so will try later...

    You can get some brilliant bargains from Start Sport, four years ago I bagged a Scott spring gilet which was reduced from £125 to £25, only issue I had with it was the zip pull on the rear pocket was only 1/2" long but a bit of black cord made it easier to find with gloved hands.

    5800 52/36T chainrings because I need more help with my top end speed on club rides and just can't spin. 80 rpm seems to be my limit out on the road
