And delivered a card inviting me to go to the post office and be properly bent over. :o ( In an extreme tax fashion)
Then they let me have my shiny new sinewave beacon light/charger. Very nice it is too, it can run via dynamo or with a usb battery. With the battery the dynamo gradually takes over as your speed increases. The other option is a lower level light and charger priority.

Hope you like it!

Not the postman, and the end of last week, but I have a Bowman Footscray sitting in the living room. Wanted one of these when they were released a couple of years ago, talked myself out of it and then they stopped making them! It's in the fancy limited edition colour too, this one-

(Not me. Could be my frame?)

Just got to swap around the drivetrains between that and the current cross bike and see what I want to sell. Anyone want to buy some di2 kit?

I'm not ecstatic about it but to be fair the one on my commencal has been pretty much creak free. OHs Pivot had some creaking issues which have been solved by a thread together bb. I read somewhere aluminium shells should be easier than carbon to get the tolerances for pf bbs right, which might explain the difference.

Ideal world it would have had threaded bb but oh well.

Interesting. I tried a threadlocker of some sort on the OHs bike- didn't seem to solve creaking but made removing it harder, so I stopped.

Certainly do. Have offered it up to the Fireline and there was no chance. Seems to fit in the Singular but need to furkle it some more. Would be nice if it fitted one of the several bikes :oops:

And delivered a pair of keen Commuter IV Bike Sandals, it might seem like an odd time of year to buy summer shoes but These seem to disappear from keens range.
I’ve used shimano spd sandals for many years, ideal touring footwear when combined with sealskin socks. Hopefully these will be as comfortable and quick drying but without allowing goose sub standard to wedge between my toes and provide a bit more protection.

Be interested to hear how you get on with that Nige. I did see a very funny video review by an American gear shop that involved a bloke in the boat and a dog doing its best to climb aboard.
