I’m off to Paris in the morning – in five hours time to be precise and am still trying to get my washing done – with 30 students from school; I’ll post a few pictures of cycling-related Parisian things.
Did my commute today with the new bars; definitely a good decision although the jury is still out on whether I need to invest in an extra long stem (see below). I’ll give it a couple of weeks before I decide. The shifters have their first bid on e-Bay so I suppose that means that I will be able to recoup at least £80 of the cost of the conversion. I’d like to bundle the sale with the drop bars and the brake levers and add another £50. That would mean the bulk of the cost of fitting the new bars has been covered.
Just been out at someone’s leaving do. It is now nearly midnight. I may regret trying to get my washing done at such a late hour when I drag myself out of bed at 4am. I am no longer 18….
