Brought me a set of wheels I ordered 2 1/2 yrs ago. The store had sent the replacements immediately when the tracking disappeared, but I like to imagine where that box was sitting for all that time
I wish it were as easy as riding a bike

Just a quick check before I tighten up the seatpost and actually clamp it down to finish off the assembly. I ran out of daylight yesterday unfortunately.

Sigma Sports are great, aren't they?

I am expecting a Cateye light bracket for #2 spawn's bike courtesy of the SJS fairy.

Tue brought some Finish Line red and a new 11sp chain from the LBS…

They are superb, I was astonished at how quickly the bike was delivered to me, I was thinking more months, than weeks at the moment. I’ve been ordering a lot of kit from them lately.

I'm astonished it came in a box, I was expecting it to arrive in it's own personal helicopter or at the very least a limousine :lol:

It was delivered by a troop of Egyptian sedan bearers, and it came with it’s own personal sun and tailwind.

To be honest it should build itself for that much.

I had a new lid delivered as well. It’s the Kask Utopia. I have never had a lid that light. It must be made of anti matter or something.

During the 7 weeks I was away from work I was toying with the idea of a Tripster AT frameset and despite several times of saying I don't need one the only way to stop me saying for definite I don't need one was to but one so called into the local dealer on the way back from a ride and I collected it a week later and built it up over the space of a month. It's still not fully built now, I need to wrap the bars and give the hydro brakes a final bleed after the initial ride.

Some Castelli Superleggera Bib shorts, and a Castelli Aero Race 6.0 jersey arrived today. I put them through their paces on a 100 mile ride, they are stupidly comfy.
