A new pair of warm longs, and some nikwax for my rain jacket - both just arrived in a happy Wiggle parcel.

Yes; mudguards, a rack, some panniers, two bike computers, a Bar-X-tender, a bottom bracket tool, a headset press, a mud-flap, a pair of pedals, a fondue set, and a cuddly toy.  Variously from Wiggle, SJS, ChainReaction, and Arkel.

(The last two items were a lie).
Actually, it is rocket science.

I bought a set of those back up lights with the elastic loop on them for 2.99 the pair including batteries..... in the petrol station where the powers that be have decreed I buy diesel for the van.  Bit of a bargain I thought.

A pair of Pro3 Grip. When fixing my flat yesterday I decided that a square profile and being  this >< far from running on the casing was a good enough reason to replace them..

No I haven't  sadly , but threads like this make me want to go out and buy something!

What'll it be I wonder?


Mustn't grumble in the circumstances .

My Christmas present to myself.

Garmin Forerunner 405.

OK, so it's for running mainly, but it'll also be used to log position/HR on training rides to see how my quest for fitness is going.

Should be delivered on Saturday morning. Off to Richmond Park in the afternoon.

I bought a wicker basket for me Pashley postie bike. Got fed up with the awful clanking sound things in the standard plastic basket made...

Oh dear - I really shouldn't have, but I just ordered a softshell jacket from EBC. It was in the sale! But still not cheap...

I should be doing the same - my contract will probably be extended in April, but if not... crumbs. I suppose I'll have more time for cycling in my nice new gear!

A pair of s/hand Ergon grips from the CTC forum. Now fitted to the S-bars of my Brompton, after moving the gear selectors and brake levers in as far as they'd go. Also managed to refit the Zefal bar-end mirror, from the same source a few weeks ago.

A small Carry Freedom y-frame trailer from Chain Reaction cause they're only £128 at the moment (£50 off RRP and £40 cheaper than anywhere else I can see)

Very true. Mind you, I'm hoping it'll be a wee while till I need one of those. And even then I'll want a flattering, wicking one.

I'm sure Rapha does a nice one, in a tweed.  Only £2,999.00 + VAT.
