    My lockring worked itself loose one time, so I dropped by condor and asked to borrow a lockring spanner. They refused, but offered to charge me 5quid to tighten it up for me.

    sounds a bit rude!

    Hmmm can't help you with bike choice. Wellington has lots of hills around it so if you are riding fixed, you'll get to have the whole 'frisco boys experience. Maybe you can do a blog on downhill spinning, macaframa style.

    haulage-wise, you'd be surprised. With many airlines they'll let you take sporting equipment as extra luggage without charge for long haul flights. I'm flying virgin to Aus and they have confirmed there will be no problems with me taking my bike on the plane. Weight limit 32 kilo (more than normal luggage!). So that is 9kg for the bike and another 20 in clothes, shoes, tools that I'll squeeze in. Nice.

    Re hong kong stop-over, they have an oversize luggage service at the airport there, you can drop your bike off there for a few days. I dunno the daily charge but will find out in a week, ask me after that.

    I just went there. I can't see anything on sale that isn't usually on sale tbh

    Why do bike shops never have sales on practical stuff like inner tubes and spokey dokes? HMM?

    Condors once did a huge winter sale in which I bought enough tubes, tyres, energy drink mix etc to last me a good few years. That's not the case today though. The only thing on sale today was ladie's windstopper in tiny-small or extra-large. And some purple Deep-vs laced to own-brand black hubs, now only £209 the set.

    Still, I haven't had the service problems others talk about and they do have a good range of pretty much anything, as othes have said.

    dm - why not create a community google map, those of us bored enough to can mark out our most frequent route or most recent journey?
