I'm assuming this "bumble" is nothing to do with another "bumble" I happened to notice in a Grauniad article earlier:
The group is aiming to build an adult social network that Sayle described as a cross between Facebook and Bumble, a dating app where women initiate contact with men. She said this would allow adult firms, such as sex toy manufacturers, an alternative advertising platform to social networks that do not permit such content.

Just received a very fine and splendid gentleman's long sleeved cycling jerkin.

Really like it and it fits well too.

Thank you Stuart!

A terribly dull little parcel of hose barbs and olives.

This is as I nicked the nicer 105 brifters from my Arkose for the new bike. I will now nick the less nice brifters from the road bike for the arkose and pop on some byway 44mm tyres (and put the mudgaurds on it full time next time it rains) I have stashed away and have myself a much more comfortable road bike than an actual road bike.

Bumble magazine

Mag looks great. I'm a sucker for a nicely printed magazine with good photography, and they make really good presents for the right people too.
Smells nice too


And no, not that bumble, that bumble I use to pass the time when I’m bored

Long sleeved jersey and some sticky magnetic tape arrive. Both are top notch, and much appreciated!

some sticky magnetic tape
Give the shield a wipe with meths before applying. The adhesive on the tape is very good but it will only fully 'cure' after 24 hours.

And delivered...,

A set of seals and foam rings, I stripped my fork and sent it off with my frame for powder coating.
Suddenly panicking I realised although I’d stripped out the seals and rings I’d forgotten about the sliders which are partly plastic , luckily the fella was busy and it was next in line. Rescued it but I still need to renew the seals, just waiting for a seal driver, I did them a couple of months ago and you definitely need the driver.
He also delivered a set of exotic DT Swiss wheel building tools, a Squorx bit driver and spoke key,
Just need a rim and we can get the band back together.

Some Sram Butter, should go nice on a slice of brown toast :lol:

I now have all the ingredients to service the lowers on my forks. Never done any before but Sram provide the service manual online, weirdly when I was looking at it on my pc at work a full colour copy came out of the office printer :???: so I did the only thing I could to hide the evidence, bound it and brought home to hide it in the shed :lol:

...and brought my new frame bag (some assembly required):

1m 600d PU coated polyester in "beige", or as it's known in the adventure gravel market, "sand", or perhaps "desert storm"
1m lightweight PU coated polyester ripstop in yellow for lining
2m 50mm nylon webbing for a ladder
1m YKK no.5 waterproof zip and two sliders (so I can replace the zip in my old one which is going)
2m 20mm OneWrap for straps

Very. Made of what feels like tough rubbery silicon, they're very useful straps

Thanks. Might invest in a few to enhance the tie down of my seatpack and handlebar bag
