Luminator 18 night riding light by MTB Batteries. This is to replace my aging E Bay bought Chinese made Solar Storm which for some reason I have never been fully confident in even though it has never let me down. I'll get much longer run times on the Luminator though.

Huge box from Wiggle. Fed up of having LS base layers and LS jerseys that are too short on my arms. Bought about 9 jerseys to try on and will send whatever doesn't fit back. Also had a couple of baselayers in the box too, I find the UA ones fit me quite well

A pair of tenn driven waterproof pants. Probably not as good as some of the more expensive brands but they look like they'll do s good job of keeping the rain out. they're lined too so can wear them against skin without them sticking in the rain.

I'm on my 3rd pair of Tenn waterproof shorts. Fit is good and not too baggy but the arse rubs through after a dozen or so rides. I'll be interested to see if their trousers are any more robust.

Used a pair for commuting ,got about 8months out of them before they had rubbed through, not to waterproof after a couple of months though , great as a extra windstopping layer mind , for the money don't think you can beat them

A cheap "Airshot" copy pump from Wiggle. I've yet to need anything other than a track pump for setting up tubeless but there's no point in trying to avoid inevitable fail :lol:

Bumper week so far:

3 cassettes and chains for the road and CX bikes as part of their winter maintenance regime, along with some brake pads, then in the Uberbikes sale some sealant, brake pads and ceramic bearings for the hardtail. Then, a special treat for the Colnago I bought in Italy - a pair of Campagnolo Shamal wheels of the same vintage.

Just waiting for a roll of bar tape and my Garmin back from Madison and I'm all set....

I've been dragging my heels about buying a new track pump so this is interesting. Do you reckon it's worth it?

It's not much more than the cost of a decent track pump and I reckon that, between a few mates locally, the tubeless feature will come in handy. I guess I'll be more likely to change tyres if it works out any easier. Ask me again in a couple of years :wink:
