...and she's brought me some Madison Zenith waterproof trousers with Zip-off legs. Fit seems to be a good mix of not not flappy up top while still being long enough to keep ankles covered. Plenty of overlap with my sealskins at any rate. Material also seems a good halfway house between the usual tissue paper and crisp packet options.

I need something like this, but a bit unsure on sizing. 34" waist seems to fall between M & L.

What is sizing like?

Some pink and black arrow grip tape and some 5" trucks for the skateboard I'm making with my daughter.

A pair of pink grips (notice a theme???) for the 16" wheel bike she's just been handed down from her big brother.

Some 100mm wide insulation tape to try something different with fat bike tubeless. So far so good, but I need more valves as I had to bodge one from an old road tube.

A couple of Kent Eriksen Sweetposts, bought from the classifieds in STW. Lovely Ti posts, light and comfy, making any bike that little bit easier on the derriere.

Metalheart, did you get a sodamax? If so, I am very, very jealous! Don't suppose it's replacing a medium green ls Solaris you want to sell is it?
