    Tried the 105's, too short by a baw hair! Which is a shame because they are decent looking things as far as modern brakes go.

    So, returning them for Shimano R451 I reckon. TRP RG957 are another option but double the price.

    Hoping flat bar lever compatibility wont be an issue?

    Naturally its not important in the true sense of the word.

    I guess what I mean is its important as to whether I think its quite cool or really cool. I like to think Banksy, whoever he is, was walking along the road, saw the bike and had a light bulb moment. Rather than what appears to be setting it up and essentially dumping a broken bike.

    However, for his work in Palestine alone he will always have my respect.

    Did the bike come first or the art work? I feel that's important.

    Quite like that as a tattoo idea.

    Nice work squire! Certainly recognise a lot of that. Meant to get to Mull for a quick skoosh around the Island on the roadie, I guess there is still time.

    When I ride past Loch Lubnaig, regardless of the bike or tyre width, I avoid the road. Rather hike up the walking path with cleats than ride that wee stretch past the loch.

    Update on cranks. Emailed Hubjub to see about the Classic Andels and John said he had put an order in and expected them end of the week.

    I also set Johnny from Andel on the quest of getting me some of the ones I wanted. Seems like they will be made up and shipped, but within a month. Would work out slightly cheaper than rebranded versions, complete with 47T cog. I'm keen to see how this works out. Requested a "stealth black".

    Ooooh not in London but I would be real happy with that in the cabinet!

    Love Strava and getting KOM's and not embarrassed about it.
