    A few packages arrived today so I've got everything apart from wheels, bb and bartape. The bar height with the stack of 3 spacers is about 10mm higher than my current road bike, it would be nice not to have them but I don't think it looks terrible.

    Not sure when I'll be able to order them as my Hope hook up is having a few difficulties, hopefully I'll be able to order them next week.

    @Dom I got the Lifeline Performance cables for my Straggler, turns out the brake outer isn't long enough to do the front and rear brakes (I could have worked this out before ordering it had I not been so lazy). I've had to order an additional brake cable set (£12.49) so it's not worked out amazingly well.

    Last week I got a package that my friend posted me, it was some t shirts and pannier bags with a marked value of $100, shipping was $60. I paid £20 in duty (and £12 was Parcel Force's fee).

    My front wheel got totalled last weekend and the bike shop just called to say the replacement is going to take 7-10 days to arrive from Mavic.

    Does anyone have a 26" front disc wheel I could borrow for the day? 6 beers for anyone who can help.

    Of course if I bend it I'll mend it.

    That's annoying, Kinoko might be worth asking?

    I can't remember the name of it but when I was looking at postage options there was a proxy service based in the US that you can get stuff delivered to and they'll forward it on the the UK for a reasonable price. They were able to combine packages from different companies too so you could get a load of stuff and split postage across all of it.

    I got them sent to my friend in Austin, TX then he forwarded them on using USPS. $60 to post the panniers and a bunch of t-shirts and I only got hit with £20 in duty/fees (although I probably could have lied even more than I did on the customs forms and got away with paying nothing). I also had a 20% off code for the Poler shop which helped keep the price reasonable.

    These guys have a shop in Boxpark with a decent selection of Poler bags, you might be able to get them to order them in if you ask nicely? I imagine the price would be a $ for £ swap though, not sure I'd pay £150 for them...
