    Black Cabbie repeatedly asking if I fancied a wank on the ride home this evening. At least I think that’s what he was asking, the saucy minx. Told him regretfully I was late for my tea, but maybe next time.

    Christmas spirit has come early.

    I think so, just not sure what the specific components are (ie product numbers etc).

    My winter bike is running Ultegra mechanical and I want to go electric. It’s a disc frame and I’m happy with the current brakes and chainset (Rotor P2Max), so just need a gear set (FD, RD, shifters and electric bits). I’d prefer eTap, but the hydro version looks prohibitively expensive for winter duties, so shimano it will likely be.

    Can someone tell me what I’d need and the cheapest way to go? Should I go for the whole group from somewhere like Merlin for £1350? Or just source the individual bits?

    Sorry for the vague questions, but don’t know shimano electric very well.

    Nice one. I’ll have a look.

    I have a (very) well used Gaggia Classic that’s looking for a new home.
    It’s over ten years old and so has a few bruises, for example the steamer handle fell off a long time ago. I have been making do with a pair of pliers, however you can buy a plastic replacement. Also, the portafilter handle is loose and is held on with gaffa tape! It works, but a replacement is fairly cheap.

    Saying all that, it’s a brilliant little machine that’s capable of producing really good espresso when paired with a decent grinder. It’s just had it’s vibation pump replaced and new thermostat fuses fitted too.

    It’s free, but requires collection from SE13.

    Wise words and I’ll try to do just that.

    I hope the bangs heal soon. Cheers

    I’m doing a sustained power plan, which has 3 rides a week. But with daily commutes (which I’m terrible at using for active recovery) and a long weekend ride, I’m struggling with fatigue. I’m sure it’s mostly work/life related as things are busy right now. Just bored of feeling done in.
