    ...I'm surprised more pros don't need to use an inhaler at that point, I reckon I would.

    Yeah, but you're actually asthmatic, they're just cheating.

    Verging on anti for me

    Really? What is possibly holding it back?!

    I've replaced my 20.5" Fit S1 with a 21" Fit Hawk.

    Brazed on a wee headtube badge I made and got it powdercoated. Out yesterday, oh and back to a coaster too,

    Set of painted Ultegra 6600s on the Day One now

    It's also now sporting an inline post and the SMP Extra from the Pompino (I'm going to experiment with a few saddles though as not finding the SMP as comfy on this for some reason) and the Hope headset from my bmx.

    The powdercoat place did a good job of masking the headbadge on the new bmx frame, I've given it a bit of a rub up with a sanding pad but it didn't need much...

    And the Pompino has transitioned through alleycat winning bruiser bike (pretty much just stripped all the guards and stuff off and fitted a bmx stem and Wingbars) to polobike (brakes reversed, set of ht2 mtb cranks with a smaller ring fitted).

    Played on it last night and going to change bars and stem out today and just lose the rear brake I think.

    Dunno if theres a version for the Alfine 11 but the Microshift barend shifter that came on my Day One works pretty well. Should be cheaper than jtek I think.

    I'm now left with a completely useless shifter!

    My experience of the Versa 8 speed shifter is that even in fully functioning order it's pretty damned useless, is the 11 much better?

    Currently mid (ish, don't actually know how long I'm paying for) way through c2w and just started a 0% V12 finance deal, wish I'd just financed the stuff I spent the c2w voucher on. Would worked out cheaper too.

    That's a belt drive bike, how the fuck did it get so dirty?
