    They didn't have a Douze in stock so only got to test à couple of bullitts in the end. The first one had only just been built and had the steps ep8 and dérailleur setup with the widest bars I've ever seen. Barely touched the pedals and torque was insane, lots of fun but would be a bit mental for carrying 2 kids in. The gears only worked with the battery plugged in which seems like a crazy option to have imo. The 2nd was with nexus 5, steps e 600 and swept back bars, it felt really comfortable and the pedal assist was barely noticeable compared to the other just easier on the legs without the catapulting acceleration.

    I tried à bakfiets long in between just out of curiosity and it's like a cruise liner in comparison I didn't enjoy it at all tbh.

    I really want to try the douze (if anyone knows anywhere else in London that has them in stock?) as for à family bike it has a few more options than the bullitt which will take a bit more effort to get right for my needs.

    Booked in at London Green to test a bullitt and a douze tomorrow. Never actually ridden a cargo bike before so pretty excited.

    Nothing wrong with Glenfiddich, never going to be mind blowing perfectly decent for a whisky that you can get cheap and pretty much everywhere. I've found the quality of the 12 to vary a bit over the years but I think that's due to the insane quantities that are produced more than anything.

    Nothing wrong with wanting an age statement, there are exceptions but a hell of a lot of them are simply passing off young (and not very good) for a price they wouldn't be able to if it had the true age on it.

    I passed that this morning, I thought it was a woman on a scooter rather than a bike? Either way hopefully she's OK, she was communicating to the people helping her when I when past.

    I got my 4 panel fire doors from wickes. I don't know jack about doors but they seem really good quality to me.

    On a different note, back into my French supermarket haul.

    Cask beer will always be the best for me but it's getting harder and harder (in London at least) to find anywhere that knows how to run a cellar. The Southampton Arms has been my favourite boozer for years for that reason, haven't been since pre lockdown days though 😔

    I think we started a few weeks before you but our balcony windows being delayed and bathroom suite getting cocked up has thrown everything out of wack a bit.

    I can’t wait to be using the storage space more than anything

    Ha, yeah we're going from zero storage to having an absolute cavern to chuck stuff in!

    Made such a dramatic difference. Flooring and steps down to the bathroom in the back dormer are pretty much done too so it's really starting to feel like a proper room up there.
