Refund granted here too.
Wages drop tomorrow night though so might splash the extra for the one from that link I posted.
Clearly it was psychological manipulation by the ‘big kayak’ industry, convincing us of the merits of open top water enjoyment, generating a sense of loss of freedom we never actually owned.
while I'm sure the money for the kayaks will be refunded,
compensation for the loss of 'the dream' will be more problematic.
message received from royal mail via twitter this morning:
While I’m no gravel expert, surely £300 for a decent looking frameset ain’t too bad:
Hopefully a one off, but I had someone come in with their fork legs trying to detach from the crown on one of those.
Hate to drop in here and post a possible bargain but..
Shimano RS700 Flat Bar shifters, for 2x11 road, £15 each.
Seems cheap when wiggle want £109 for a tiagra set.
Free tricross for tall Bristol person?
‘Left under my banner right opposite to Rajani carpark Bs57ha. First to come takes it away for free ’
Camping World has kayaks at £65
the new scam!
the new scam!
We might have broken an international inflatable kayak money laundering ring!
proud of this community!
And all it cost us was time and money 💪👏
Brand X Ascend internal droppers in the Chain Reaction sale. 100/125/150mm drop for £88 and 170/200mm drop for £100, in both 30.9 and 31.6 dia. Can't remember seeing them this cheap before.
Yes got one a couple of weeks ago. Sign up for the newsletter and get another tenner off. Good deal!
lots of bargains on Chain Reaction site - flat levers, shifters etc
Yup - Think I spotted a Deore FD for a quid!

Really handy, was after some flat bar road levers, Tiagra's for a fiver each. Needed a new front light too and the Lifeline Pavo 2000lm was down to £80. The site auto applied an additional £10 off over £75 code too, which I'd missed.
and further time, and hope and faith, with a little extra time
F&F CAAD 4 SAECO in Italy for cheap the guy ships
Large Dave Yates Audax over on the CTC site. No pics but guy posted about the bike years ago so seems legit and great price at £275 https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?t=152404&sid=08440bf619bdbc1182b41513b2c1e300
Had a chuckle this afternoon - one of those kayaks has turned up BNIB on Gumtree up the road from me (seller asking for £160 - hahahaha - definitely NOT a bargain). Maybe a couple actually made it after all!
are you tempted? we've been at the beach this week, really compounded the sense of what might have been.
I did rent a rowing boat for a bit which helped to relieve the sadness though.
Thinking we might just hire them this year instead!
