    Trip to the LBS for spares

    Off down to the LBS today and as it's a nice sunny day with minimal wind then I will be riding. Only a 20 mile round trip and I do not have a pannier on the bike. Whatever I get will have to go in the pockets of my "Assos" winter jacket as temp will not get into the 60's. So no major purchases as I will not be able to carry it back.

    Just been down the bike shed to look at the spares I will need and so far it is Chain Lube- Outer cable ends------and I can't think of anything else. I know there must be a few more items that I am getting low on but the brain has gone. Have a couple of spare tyres already and plenty of tubes--just thought of another- Repair patch glue--but just can't think of anything else.

    My problem is that when I get home I remember the other items that I should have got. So help-- What else have I forgotten to put on my list that I am going to be swearing about in a couple of hours?
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Extra set of brake pads maybe, at least one spare each of shifter and brake cable, and an extra housing or two.... Check the grease pot too...
