Double mirrors- perfect for a travel bike that's used on both sides of the pond.

Toe straps? Sure you don't need new pedals more than integrated bars? :p:D

Haha!!

Funny you say that, I'm not a fan of Shimano pedals, I grew up using toe clips and have stayed with those, but I ordered the new Speedplay pedals and will (forgive the pun) put the toe in the water on clipless pedals.

Flashing indicator lights
 
I have just got this snazzy rear light system to see how good it is. It was not expensive ($14.78) from Aliexpress.

The brightness is good but not amazing or dazzling but since the lights flash I think that is OK.

Has anyone else tried these signal lights yet?

A set of 28mm Schwalbe Pro Ones from Merlin Cycle. Can't wait to try them.

I was very pleased with how easy they mounted on my hookless SLR wheels as compared to my previous Giant / Cadex tires. I had to fight before to get them mounted and I think I could have mounted these even without a compressor.

I also tried the Muc-Off sealant instead of the Giant I had been using for the past 2 years. Will see if it makes a difference. Muc-Off is a little thicker and has particles inside that the Giant doesn't have so it should be better.

All,

The vintage folders I ride around on do not have QR axles.
So I ordered these dog bone wrenches from eBay to keep in the saddle bag.
Ordered 03/09, arrived today. Tested on Raleigh Twenty and Exclusiv. And didn't break, seemed solid enough. .

99 cents a piece, from China.

They're great tires. Just curious on a datapoint - do these stay bead-locked on your rims when deflated? On my Zipps, they would unseat when deflated, which made sealant maintenance more fussy.

Very much so confidence inspiring. :D

I had to remove the valve cores once mounted to add the sealant (I inflated them without sealant) and they both stayed bead-locked even with no air.

I bought a 0 offset seatpost for my Giant Defy Advanced 2. I've felt for a long time that I needed to move my saddle a little bit more forward and I was a little short of that with the offset seatpost that came with the bike. Now I just need an opportunity to try it.

Had a couple of cateye kinetic lights (sit really well on seatstays), some bar tape and tyre levers arrive from PBK yesterday. This stuff was add ons to a GP5000 order that they gave up on trying to fill. Probably won't be using them again in a hurry.

Found an outstanding conditioned, 7 month old, barely used Trek FX4 Sport Carbon for my wife. I was in a generous mood and also picked up a pair of Bontrager Aeolus Pro 37's to replace the boat anchor stock wheels.
