    That must break most of UK alcohol advertising rules? @greenhell it is a sequel to the Peleton ad.

    @Jaymo85 the Rapha ones are no longer available. You can get an Endura merino one for about £15 though.

    So I went recently - my questions a few pages back - but what I some of what I actually did and would recommend on short trip. Some overlap with what others have said.

    • Bike hire - didn't get round to it in LA, did it elsewhere. Have previously hired a basic hybrid in Venice and just cruised N and S on beach paths. You can go a couple of miles North, maybe nip to Santa Monica pier (Santa Monica is dull though IMHO), and a long way South, but it gets a bit sparse.
      There are also various dockless City bikes and e-scooters but not sure of exact locations.

    • Petersen Car Museum - think the SciFi cars exhibition is still on. Did the 'vault tour' - expensive but excellent. Also Los Angeles County Museum of Art, La Brea Tar Pits very close. Didn't actually go in Tar Pits museum, it is free to see actual tar coming out the ground

    • Golden Saddle is worth a trip. Sort of museum of memorabilia as well as bike shop. Good for souvenir cap/tshirt etc.

    • I went to Dodgers game but wrong season now. Maybe consider Lakers game?

    • Consider walking up to Griffith Observatory for epic views, Terminator/La La Land etc etc location. Then down to Los Feliz - interesting area, bars, restaurants etc

    • Don't go to Hollywood.

    I have to admit a towel with loops would be extremely useful.

    Corporate upper-middle management seasonal communication:

    What are you thankful for in 2019?
    What will people LOVE you for in 2020?
    Post your answers to [internal social network] with the hashtag #LOVEyou

    LOVE = Living Our Values Everyday apparently

    I think the Chain Box one has a flange on the drive side, to hold on a chain retention device (box?), or an 'E-type' derailleur like this:

    Also, that is a very well used MS IntelliMouse Optical. Must be pushing 20 years old?
