I daren't go to a jumble...

Got the brazing torch out tonight to modify worf - a better towbar
attachment.

Then took the mutant[1] out after fitting my Look pedals.
1) it is undergeared
2) it is too small
3) Having your feet fixed to the pedals is so much nicer.
4) not sure about how well my knees like being brakes.

[1] Old Raleigh Arena frame with 590 wheels on the front, 559x1.5 on
the back and much too short for me.

I bought a brand new cyclocross frame and carbon forks for said frame. Cost
a tad more than £2 but a large amount less than it would have cost to buy
the stuff normally, even from an online retailer. The offspring now has no
excuses left for not giving cyclocross a go over the winter (although to be
fair to him, he is actually wanting to give it a go this winter... unlike
previous winters).

You did much better than me, then !

Still, I got (nearly) what I wanted : some sprockets and a lock ring
that will sort-of fix them to a standard hub. I didn't really want
to change hubs at this point but if I'd seen one that cheap I'd
have had it too !

Could have spent a fortune on clothes but managed to resist.

Ogled several 'bents. Not sure which owners I spoke to but they
were all very helpful.

What are these whels, Mr W? Are they they things that develop on the skin
when you fall off into the mud? ;-)

He can go whistle for a second frame, but spare wheels are a good idea.

Decals... you should have an email.
