    2nd vote for tour on what you have (if it's suitable).

    My other half and I did a 3 day trip to the Isle of Wight with Axiom Streamliner racks and 30 litre panniers. I was on an Allez, she on a steel Ribble road bike.

    Swapped out the rear for a 28s tyres with a bit of tread, and the front to 25s.

    Loads of fun.

    Got one of these on my Mash - not pretty but it's only there for emergencies/big hills:

    Who did I see on Shaftesbury Ave. last night, Corima 4 Spoke?
    @IR presumably?

    Think I saw @spotter on Shaftesbury avenue this afternoon.

    D'oh - that was a bit simple.

    Ah yes that was me, took a lot to stop myself yelling DAS at you. I just nodded I think

    It was a very knowing nod. Love that front wheel.

    Who did I see spinning northbound on Camden Road last night at about 8pm? Two of you, one on a Dolan? I was at the junction going south on Camden street at the lights, would've DAS'd but you were hooning!

    X-Post from General Stolen Bikes:

    A friend of mine's sister has had her bike stolen in Manchester:

    Eleni Papadopoulos is an amazing young woman who's studying at Manchester University. She's also a Paralympian Swimmer and Triathlete training for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
    Last night her specially adapted bike was stolen from outside the Manchester Aquatics Centre.
    Eleni has Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy and nerve damage and as a result of her disabilities in not permitted to drive, therefore her bike is her main form of transports and with a 30 hour training schedule per week balancing alongside what is supposed to be balancing with her studies - her bike is key to helping her balance doing all this.
    She only left the bike at 1930 (double locked to bike rack outside main entrance to MAC), because she was borderline about to have an epileptic fit (and is not supposed to cycle in this state). She arrived back at 4:15am this morning for training and it was gone.
    Eleni is devastated. The bike is worth £1500 has been adapted with extra brakes that are positioned to help accommodate her disabilities. It is a white and silver Scott Speedster size extra small / 49 inch frame. It has her name on the top bar of the frame (Eleni Papadopoulos).
