That's a lovely pair of cranks (Reg ... if you're watching, that is NOT a euphemism)

But as you say fella, it's not kit, so it doesn't count. Move along ... move along
I'm just stepping outside ...

I'm in 2 minds... After Rich post selling his MH Ghost Whisperer jacket and Reg finding some right bargains online for the same in various appropriate sizes... I'm wondering whether I'm just being silly thinking I need one...


Currently got the 400g Rab Microlight which is plenty warm if double the weight of the MH.

Hmmmm

Well, I'm impatiently awaiting new stock of large ti Camino frames at alpkit/sonder so I'd bling that cost not spared (but mostly just funcy wheels, stem, bars and seat post...).

I've plenty kit that needs using (not replacing). A new lunar solo (again not that my old one is worn...)?

Maybe an exped pillow for my infirmity...?

stuff is just stuff. if i want something, i dont lust over it, i just buy it and see if it works for me,
But, as my selling record shows, most stuff is no better at all than the stuff it is replacing. trust me on this, my bank balance will show testiment to this. :lol: :lol: :-bd :-bd

In tie-die, on a Moots Routt YBB... 🤤

Actual kit wise, a lightweight tent, two quilts, bib shorts that actually fit nicely, and all the workshop tools one could ever want.
I like beer. 🍻

My no expenses spared items would be Taylor and Matt as butlers to cook me 3 course dinners every trip.
