    Segregated to the Holborn Viaduct and stops. There's a pleasant, quiet route through the back streets a bit further up the road.

    I would vote fresh build - had a similar quandary a few years ago and had a set built.

    Token hubs, A119s for a fixed porteur.

    That would be helpful!

    I don't have a fabric one to hand but I've measured with a steel rule - they look to be approx. 32/30.

    This seems to correlate with Vulpines own size guide http://www.vulpine.cc/uk/size-guide

    Hello, having a little clearout of the parts bin and some old stuff, cheap bits and bobs for beaters etc.

    Collection from SE1 post 6pm, or can meet most places centrally if you want.

    I do PayPal (with protection only, no ifs, no buts) and can post anything for max £3, more likely less if it's large letter sized.

    Likelihood of items coming with free cat hair - 100%

    1. Retro Mesh Fingerless Gloves - £5

    Slightly grubby - worn a few times but too big for me - would suit a large palm size.

    2. BMX V-Brake Brake Levers (Pair) - £5

    No-name (possibly Clarks) 22mm brake levers.

    3. Tektro RL720 Crosstop Levers 25.4mm Clamp (Pair) - £10

    Very lightly used crosstops, taken off to free up handlebar real estate.

    4. Cane Creek Crosstop Lever 31.8mm Clamp (LHS ONLY) - £5

    Never installed. Great for having a brake on an OS 31.8mm handlebar.

    5. Shimano Padded Long Gloves - Size Large - £5

    Bought for touring but too big for my hands. Worn for a long tour and a few weeks after. Bobbling on the fingers and grip flaking off. Synthetic leather palm.

    6. Biologic Ergo Grips with built in "T-Tool" - £10

    Gift, never installed. 22mm I/D with lock on bolts. Tool and bar end plug still around.

    7. Vans Hip Pouch - £5

    Well-used, well loved. Velcro might need a clean but still hips and pouches. Discolouration from washing and use.

    8. Vulpine Womens Trousers - £20

    Vulpine rain trousers - early model, never worn. Poorly fitting gift - if you've got Pendleton thighs then this won't fit you as the leg is tres slender. Size Large. Cat hair included for free.

    9. 2 x Kryptonite Flex Cable - 4ft - £5

    Suitable for locking front wheel in combination with decent U-Lock in a lock risk situation. I have TWO of these for £5 each. Never used.

    10. Tacx Bottle Cage Saddle Mount - £5

    Usage marks next to mount holes - would recommend only using for one cage and a 500ml bottle, any more and it decided to move when going over bumps.

    11. Token 144BCD 48T Chainring - £5

    Used chainring, probably for less than 1 winter. Good for a beater.

    Probably confirmation bias but I totally agree, and it's not limited to SE.

    Everything I was taught to do on my driving test (indicating to pass an obstacle in your lane, indicating at roundabouts, indicating to change lanes) seems to be missed on any journey I take.

    Even at a T-Junction I go through on my daily commute, people don't put their indicator on until they're at the junction, despite 5/6 cars regularly backed up. It's meant to be about 30 metres before the junction, not one car length. Makes it a right sod to filter safely.
