An order of Thomson parts accidentally arrived today, going to fit it all tomorrow when my Fabric saddle arrives. Oops!

On the topic of Thomson, the pouch their seatposts come in makes an excellent tool kit pouch

I decided to finally buy a new chainring as my chain started slipping off when I gave it the beans resulting in a few knee to stem incidents.

I want to buy so much shit.

I'd like some more lycra more than anything else right now. Well, after actually being allowed to ride a bike. One of the new Campag groupsets with the new spaceship chainsets would be tits too.

And a Winter bike for next year.

And a full bouncer even though I'm pretty sure I much prefer off road stuff on the CX bike.

One of them Garmins with the heart rate monitor and stuff would be cool.

^ those fabric saddles are mega nice.

Picked up some Sportful R&D bib shorts a few weeks ago. They feel nice on the legs. Haven't taken them on a long ride yet though. Ordered the chinese frameset in the end. Expected delivery 24th of march - 14th of april. Going to get a set of Jagwire cables nearer the time. Feel a bit silly putting mostly Claris on it...

Will fitting 26 x 2.25 tubes in 26 x 1.9 tyres work or will I need the smaller tubes? I have loads of 2.25 ones im thinking of bringing a few on my tour

It'll just be a bit of a faff to get in and easier to pinch.

You may be able to cram one in but it could get bunched up and pinch flat itself. Slightly smaller tubes are okay, bigger is not IMO.

I ran ahead a bit and hid, dropped my jeans and took my top off and started chasing them whilst spraying beer all over them and making weird noises.

Never seen them Fabric seats before, decent alternative to my fucked Arione. Any good?
