Still sore and scabby.

No riding today, partly due to a lengthy hangover, however I did do plenty of fettling.

Fitted a new 32t Goldtec chainring to the Inbred and tweaked the drivetrain a bit. Repaired a puncture on the Stiffee and poked/prodded the forks. Then I swapped the bars between the Inbred and Stiffee. The Inbred now has the low-rise EA50’s and the Stiffee has the 2″ rise Azonic World Force. If, as I suspect, the higher bars suit the Stiffee, then I’ll get a set of RaceFace or Azonic Double-Walls for it.

Hopefully I’ll take the Stiffee out for a spin tomorrow.


My new sleeping bag finally arrived, although the “free” liner was absent which could mean that the offer had expired, although they have recently changed the order page to allow you to specify the free liner, which would tend to indicate that they still have stock. I’ll wait to see what customer services say before kicking up more of a fuss.

I was going to go for a ride tonight, but seem to have developed a headache, so I’m not sure I’ll go. I’ll leave it an hour or so and see if my head feels better.


Spent most of the day at my parents for my nephew’s birthday party. The weather was nice enough for us to have a bbq in the garden, and I took loads of pictures with the digital camera. I’m getting used to it slowly. An additional memory stick will be on it’s way as soon as I can sort out why Expansys think they haven’t got the credit card details I supplied.

This evening I did the “sad loner” bit and went to the cinema on my own to see The Matrix Reloaded, definately a good film, but seemingly more of a build-up to The Matrix Revolutions than a story in it’s own right. Roll on 7th November when, hopefully, all will be revealed.

Update: It seems the card expiry date was missing from the order details. Not sure how that happened.
