    Thanks mate, managed to source one (well, two single boxes) from Super Domestique in the end.

    And after riding just one mile with a wheel box under my arm and strong crosswinds I think I would have ended up in the Thames trying to ride a box back from SE14 to N1 😂

    Anyone London based have a spare double wheel box hanging about? Need to post a set of wheels but I've had no luck at 6 different shops today.

    Will exchange for a forum donation.

    For sale (£500 pickup from N1): nearly new Shimano/SRAM DT Swiss PR1400 dicut oxic 21 wheelset. I bought these wheels a year ago as wet weather wheels, but after getting them rebuilt with a new rim under warranty (there was some minor wear on the original rim) I bought a dedicated winter bike with disc brakes so these haven't been used since. Reluctant sale as these are by far the best aluminium wheels I've ever ridden.

    These have been rebuilt under warranty with a new rim so the ceramic braking surface is in perfect condition. Only taken for a 50km test spin after being rebuilt by TF Tuned (official DT Swiss repair centre). They are actually stiffer after being rebuilt, no brake rub at all.

    Super light, stiff aluminium wheels with a ceramic braking surface, 240s hub internals and tubeless ready (rim tape installed). Will come with recommended Swissstop BXP brake pads (1 ride only).

    Marketing blurb:
    The top of aluminum road wheels. The ceramic OXiC surface coating brings brake performance to rim brakes like it has never been seen before. The rims are wide, asymmetric and lightweight, making for an outstand-ing stiffness to weight ratio. If set up tubeless, supreme comfort and grip are added to the athletic character. The PR 1400 DICUT OXiC wheelsets are both extremely practical and competitive, very much in tune with their stealthy appearance.

    MATERIAL: Aluminum
    RIM TYPE: Clincher (tubeless ready)
    RIM DIAMETER 622 mm (29" / 700C)
    RIM HEIGHT 21 mm
    INNER WIDTH 18 mm
    OUTER WIDTH 21.5 mm
    HUB TYPE 240
    NIPPLES DT ProLock Squorx ProHead alu

    Just got a bar bag from the Bumbags Project delivered. Really happy with how it looks, fits nice and snug as well with plenty of space for cables and a Di2 junction box. Haven't tested it out yet but the waterproofing looks quite good.

    What do you want to know? I've got a Datum that I run as a winter road/gravel/CX bike. I absolutely love it.

    Still need one? I've got two Garmin flush out front mounts sitting around in boxes.

    Yeah it's awful. Not a nice road at the best of time. I prefer taking the road down to Theydon Bois and up Piercing Hill. Nice little detour with a gentle climb that takes you up to Bell Common.
