laugh

I am hoping they say something like 'you are a very nice, lightweight pair of wheels that look fantastic!' - but it is more likely they are going to say 'is this the fastest this fat arsed rider can go?'.....

Just got a Rapha winter jersey. Pretty heavy so will keep out the winter chill. Seems like a quality bit of kit & fits well. Hoping for a cold snap so I can get it on smile

yeah will do, in the meantime if you read through the mtb winter lights thread there are some pictures posted by others of lights as they come and in use.

suspension seatpost arrived today and im pretty impressed.
iv got to have a bit of a play with the preload adjustment to set it for my weight but its doing the job better than i expected.
i payed 35 quid off the bay but its gone up to 40 in the week since ordering.







finaly got sensible and bought a sweed protector.



just ordered a 1200lm front light out of the winter lights thread too.
all this and the aldi purchases its been an expensive week.

Popped into Sports Direct last night & got myself some padded shorts, a green & black jersey & some SPD SL shoes all in for £35.00. Only cheap Muddy fox gear but it's exactly what I wanted to see how I get on with the clipless pedals which I am collecting from Evans tomorrow.

To (badly) quote Grease, I don't drink (much), or smoke, or spend lots on hair cuts. I don't feel too bad about spending a bit on bike gear. Everyone has to have a vice of some sort. wink

I have pointed out to the missus she has it pretty goo with me. I also don't watch much sport on TV or play video games. When I am indulging my vice, it's also making me healthier too...
