Another wet weekend

A fairly busy week at work this week, partly due to unreliable power. No real riding was managed due to the lingering effects of a cold at the beginning of the week, and crap weather so far this weekend. Thursday was a work BBQ, the rain mostly held off for the evening, and I drank a small oceans worth of alcohol with worringly few aftereffects. I had Friday afternoon work off so popped down to the LBS and picked up a couple of bits for the roadbike, which now sports a new stem and some decent pre-enjoyed tyres.

I did pick up a brand new bike this week, unfortunately it was too small for me so I think I’ll give it to my nephew for his birthday next week.

Rumour has it that there may be a pre-enjoyed frame on it’s way to me at the moment, I really ought to sort out how much I’m paying for it.

    We all want to know if you have seen Episode iii yet, and what you thought of it?

    As posted elsewhere….

    Good story, dodgy dialogue, crap acting. Slightly odd time jumps as well, particuarly with the pregnancy timeline.

    More akin to the original trilogy than the pathetic excuse that was Phantom Menace/Attack of the Clones.

    Shame Jar Jar Binks was still breathing though. Hopefully there will be a directors cut one day with the full 30 minute Jar Jar Binks gratuitous torture scene.

    You copied and pasted that, you lazy sod. :-)

    As for the frame and bits, that depends on what you want for the wheel. I think I said

    I have more non-disk forks than I know what to do with, I don’t really need another set hanging up in the cellar.
