A couple of Minoura SwingGrips.

I have spent a week's worth of evenings thinking of a way to build a decaleur that I can easily move from bike to bike, that will work on frames from 50cm up to 65cm, and doesn't look too obnoxious. I had already looked at hundreds of parts that I might be able to use, when I came across these. All they need is for the tube to be replaced by a longer one.

The Koga, be it fortunately or unfortunately, has a top mount shifter boss, and I really did not want to go with a clamp-on shifter set up. However, finding a top mount boss, with friction/indexing shifter capability seemed to be a pipe dream. I'd only seen a couple very random pics of them, and even velobase has them listed as 'legendary' status.
Happened to be doing an eBay search, and saw an NOS one. Almost couldn't believe my eyes, so I asked for a few more detail pics, hoping nobody else would do the 'buy it now' in the meantime. Got a quick reply from the seller, he accepted my offer, and it arrived today. Super excited about this, as now I can move forward with a few changes I've been wanting to make to the Koga.

The elusive #6439807 shifter mount:






Test fitting, just to confirm it would fit. It does!
Cool! Iíve never seen one of those before. Iíve got a PRO Miyata with that same upper mounting point. Iíve still got the original SunTour 6-speed friction shifters but good to know there is a solution should someone need it, even if seemingly rare.

A cool tool for those days when lunch means buying a baguette, some fromage and a saucisse along the way.

Folding cutlery, containing a knife, a spork and bottle and a can opener.

At less than 2 oz (52 grams) it shouldn't slow me down too much:



It's small, but not too small:



It looks and feels well made, too:

I got the 110mm Nitto Pearl in for my Calfee Tetra Pro build. And sorta cycling related, the VA sent me a BP machine to track my blood pressure with. You know it's too high when the docs want you checking it 3 times a day, LOL! This is forcing me to reconsider putting a winter bike back together because I hate and suck at riding inside during the winter.

It's the little things that count. Found these for a great price from the Bike Recyclery in Portland, to go on the Specialties TA cranks on my Motobecane Grand Record.

A copy of H H England, Cycling Manual, 24th edition (London: Temple Press, 1960)




(Not my copy; instead, a photo that I nicked from Amazon. But my copy's the same.)

Fascinating stuff. (Well, moderately fascinating: unfortunately there's no mention of the Rough Stuff Fellowship or anything like it. But fair enough, for a book aimed at newcomers.)

According to the copyright page, the first edition came out in 1917. Googling doesn't turn up any sign of a 25th (or 26th) edition; certainly none is listed at Worldcat.

Wiggle LifeLine Essential Track Pump in blue:https://www.wiggle.co.uk/lifeline-essential-track-pump
Ordered on 25th, for the massive sum of £9.99 + £3 postage

It actually works, and it seems my thumb wasn't reading the pressure correctly.
(Yes I have a gauge or two, but they're a pain to use).
My first track pump, and a lot faster than my Bluemels 3 frame pump.

The wheels roll noticably better at the correct pressure.

Not C&V at all, but I just got one of these to play with. I've gone down a rabbit hole of finding a minimalist battery taillight to act as a backup to the dyno-powered taillight on my rando bike. Here, absolute brightness isn't as important as something that can last for a whole 1200km brevet without intervention:



The Cygolite Dice TL is about a cubic inch in size and weighs about an ounce, so it won't be very intrusive. But its "Group Mode" is claimed to last up to 65 hours(!) Modern lighting is amazing.

All the parts I need to rebuild the rear wheel of the SilverAce. A Sturmey Archer RXL-RD5 5-speed drum brake hub.
And a 36H Sturmey Archer Dynohub for the Gazelle A because the 28H and 32H I already had wouldn't fit a 36H rim.
