SP dyno hub and a Revo (from Spa cycles thanks to a tip off on the bargain thread!) - looks somewhat dinky after my maxx D (and various fat bike hubs). Now debating whether to swap the rim from my existing hub or buy a new rim so I can swap it about....

A big drop from Alpkit: a bicycle 7; A couple of neck-warmer buff things; a MyTiMug 400 (before I saw Stu's Xmas list on the blog :smile: ) and "Cycling the Great Divide" :wink:

My nice new UK Hammocks custom quilt. It's going to be so toasty.

Wooden train set :-bd

Might have to set it up and make sure it works for the little one before Christmas day. Better be on the safe side :lol:

Another small consignment of vintage parts;
a pair of brake levers to replace the broken one I took off.
Plus a pair of cranks, a pair of inner tubes in a now obscure size, and a set of transfers from Thailand for the frame renovation.

Thanks for that, looks a useful resource. However, if ever there was a web "shop" that would benefit from lot of pictures, this is it... It's a bit like looking through the dictionary to find a word you don't know how to spell... :???: :roll:

I know what you mean, you do kinda have to know exactly what it is you want / what you've got.

It's my daughters first set, so bought a copy of Breo (apparently both makes work together), so going to see how she gets on with it first before getting more in :-bd Fingers crossed she'll like it and I can join in :lol:

Got a "trigger bell" because the one I used to have no long seems to make any decent amount of noise (perhaps being damped a bit by my carbon handlebars?).

Also want to try out a Spurcycles bell, but still can't persuade myself to spend that sort of cash.

Bontrager OMW's arrived from Holland this morning after seeing Nigel's Bargain thread PSA.
Very impressed with them in the lounge test.
Wanted some Japanthers but couldn't justify the extra £100 compared to these.
I'd go two sizes up if your thinking of getting some though.

My PHD Minimus 600 back from the cleaners. Lovely fresh smell and nice loft (98%, I'm told) made it a worthwhile exercise. Not sure I trusted myself not to cock it up by doing it myself in the bath...

What, you didn't relish the prospect of putting a few hundred quids worth of bag in a tumble drier with a couple of tennis balls?

Pffft, wuss.
