    I think my body is fortunately quite forgiving of this sort of thing, but I'm operating on a major slant and just cut up an old yoga mat into credit card sized pieces and put a couple under one foot and several under another.. felt a bit weird at first but now it just seems like I have the world's cheapest rocker plate!

    Blimey you weren't kidding - but based on today, work is inevitably going to rule me out of this half-plan regardess I'm afraid.. :(

    What's the option for reducing the overall height (top of Garmin to bottom of light) as far as possible?

    Sorry I'm way late to this, but I just put a standard Garmin mount on the top of the Sirius which feels pretty snug. I think all the included Garmin out front mounts have the reverse connecter on the bottom these days which allows this..? I dunno, maybe fancier mounts are slimmer but I've never felt the need to find out - and the super-quick removal/replace is an added bonus. I have even mounted Hope Visions and Tracers like this..*

    *deviants who like their Garmins pointed skywards may be less pleased with this (but you can just Gorilla tape the back of the light to get some tilt)

    I'm not sure anyone warrants an award this year, except maybe @cagimaha and @rhowe for valiant attempts to keep this thing going, but we'll definitely wheel out a tiny trophy for you if you make it!

    I lurking hard on this idea btw @rhowe . Work is almost certainly going to be a PITA on Thursday, but if I can swing it, I will..

    A rare ride window popped up today and I finally summoned up the motivation to go and get 42x42..

    Unfortunately I'm struggling to see myself improving on this much, as I've reached the point where pretty much every ride is gonna need to be a century and will inevitably include several of the tile-baggers bingo card..

    1) Nettles
    2) Minor tresspassing
    3) Boggy fields
    4) Fly tippers
    6) Doggers
    7) Angry dogs guarding scrapyards
    8) Suspicious security guards (fortunately usually glued to phones)
    9) Death trap roads
    10) Dried up riverbeds
    11) Loose horses

    I don't generally have a problem with reconditioned purchases, particularly ones I'm going to thrash and sweat all over within 5 mins anyway, but I think the reconditioned ones are V5 and the new ones are V6 (released last week). So, if you are happy with V5, it would actually be cheaper to get a new one anyway from here..

    .. or there's £900 from Wiggle etc..

    rear rack and slap Ortlieb accessory packs on each side

    I tried to do this when the packs were first released but I never managed to get a satisfactory attachment method (and, at the time, the only person I saw doing it had an elaborate wood/drill/hacksaw/glue type solution that was beyond me/my rack). Is there an easier fitting option these days..?

    Very sorry @rhowe but my childcare/work situation has gone to shit. I'm gonna be out of action for at least the next week.. :(

    Urgh, sorry I was being overly optimistic. I'm not going to be able to make it I'm afraid. Next week?
