Can I get you anything?

Cycling down to the LBS tomorrow- So while I'm there- Can I get anything for you to save you the trip?

Just remembered that I have a lamp mount ordered before Christmas and Been too busy to pick it up. Probably will walk away with another repair kit and I need a new wedge for the OCR as it is going out on loan to a new rider. Probaly will need to phone the SAG wagon for the rest of the stuff I will buy so While I'm there---

Only problem is that you may have to wait a while for delivery- but I can test it out for you in the meantime.

How about two 16 oz bottles of Hammer Gel in Raspberry and Chocolate? That would save me a trip.

Yeh, I could use some of that too.

How about a new Brooks B17? I expect it to be completely broken in by August 31.

I'll let you know if I can think of anything else -- thanks for asking!

Do bicycles imported from England have to go through Canada for crash bumpers and emmissions equipment or something like that?

Sure!

Well since your going to the LBS, why not treat yourself to a "New Bicycle" and since you'll need the space, just send me your "Old One", problem solved!! Ok, just kidding

Decided that this year is not a NEW bike year. Might change when I go to the LBS and see something though.

And still enough room in the shed for a couple more.
