    Mind changed thanks to @hamrack - a Tubus Tara is in the post from Germany.

    Mudguards went on over the last couple of days. Must say that GB guards are a pain in the arse without a Dremel. 38mm Schwalble G-Ones fit pretty nicely under the 50mm versions.

    Unfortunately, the front derailleur arm fouls the mudguard, so i'll have to have a think about how to attack that problem.

    Using the commute to work for a shakedown means a hell of a lot of stops to do up the odd nut and bolt every now and then. I think it's pretty much there though.

    Anyone want to buy an Equilibrium Disc frame in 58cm?

    Did a shit job of putting a new chain on this morning, resulting in not just one, but two broken chain events on the way into work this morning.

    Spent the evening battling with some GB longs and christ I wish I had taken them to SBC.

    Looks amazing - how'd the weather treat you over that time?

    Also - which Ortliebs are they? Can't work out a size because of the 26" wheels!

    Anyone got a Headset Press around SW4, or alternatively NW10, W4, W12 that I could borrow for a weekend of swearing?

    Got a 58cm (which I think is the large) Equilibrium Disc frameset coming up in the near-ish future if you're tempted.

    Yeah, District 1 is definitely in the centre - we stayed at a place called Aries Ben Thanh Central Hotel which was about 180 for 6 nights (you could totally go cheaper though). It was down a back street but near the best Banh Mi cart in the city (Banh Mi 37 Nguyen Trai).

    You could stay out of District one to save cash as Uber is an incredibly accessible way to get around (a couple of quid for a journey, or go for a... Lyft, I think it was called, on the backs of mopeds). We chose these as rainstorms can screw your day up very easily.

    If you like a beer then Pasteur Street Brewing Company is very popular with ex-pats and is worth a visit.

    Definitely worth going for a massage somewhere too, as again they're very cheap (read: reputable massage places - see google reviews to avoid the seedy places).
