A new Arkose X from Evans on special offer.
Not sure I’ll get on with the (very) flared bars though.

The best thing about today (which involved a 4am wake up and a mini-cab to Heathrow for a flight to Athens to check out two hotels for an event in June, then a flight back and eventually getting home 40 minutes ago) was finding my new Tomshoo titanium wood burning stove in a nice flat package when I pushed the door open (and tripped over the cat)

I think it's very cool.
I'm just stepping outside ...

I’ve gone for the GX build so that might be the delay, last I heard frames were on their way and expected mid March.

Weird as I got an email last week to say they were back in stock, by the time they’d come back to me with some details they were back to pre order again. Not sure if they got a small delivery which sold out quickly.

Just noticed the GX build has gone up another £250, glad I got my order in last week :-bd

With a blue Hope seat clamp to even out my Pitch (blue V4's needed a bit of balance).

And a 1/4 to 1/8 BSPP reducer for my fire extinguisher tubeless inflator.

A new buzzrack eazzy3 bike rack, to replace the Thule 9503, which has finally bitten the dust after 10 years of sterling service.

Will be setting it up tomorrow, prior to doing the usual Saturday chores

Postie delivered a valentines card that I will give to Mrs B that said 'I love you almost as much as I love the dog'

I did consider the ones that said 'I love you almost as much as I love my bike'
but she would know that's blatantly not true :lol:
