Lives/is from nowhere near London.
Rides fixed most of the time, mostly not in London.
Races fixed for LFGSS.CC (TT & HC) or Team Shred It! (crit), sometimes in London.

Four track bikes and one road bike.

    Umlaufbahn DS decals designed without chainrings in mind.
    Does anyone esle look at the Standert logo and see the old (c) Boardman logo?
    Now I don't know which brand is cooler.

    Chainring that comes with the 'criterium' is a Zen Messenger, not a 'proper' Zen. It is solid and not machined on the rear face for weight saving so is cheaper and heavier.
    On the crank, only the outer faces of the crank arms have been polished before anodising, whereas the entire crank is polished on the regular SG75. It's been bead blasted or chemically etched to give it that matte texture, which is cheaper/quicker than polishing entirely.

    Not at the current rate of regression & stagnation (haven't ridden in anger since November, my commute's less than half what it was last year, and just got a car again so most of my time/money's going on that) but I do plan to later in the year :-)
    IIRC our local club TTs begin around April.

    What front brake is that? I have a TRP one similar but couldn't get it to work with the Oval fork without fouling the down tube. Would make sense it it's an Ova' branded brake, but would love to find something similar, that works, without going to Tririg route.

    Looks great in white IMO (like a track champ but better, lol).

    Just seen your comment in my email notifications and first thought was 'was it a white one?' ha... Think it's branded by a bike shop.

    50% off offer on now, maybe worth a try, cheers!
    Ordinarily, though, looks like it's £16.49 for 1kg only, or £29.99 for 2.5kg (£12/kg), which is more expensive per kg than Huel @£40 for 3.5kg (£11.43/kg).
    Do you get greater discount for ordering from them more regularly?

    TBH I was worried about turning into a 'protein shake fitness tit' when I started on Huel, but took solace from the fact it's not directly marketed as a fitness product. I fear that opening a pouch labelled 'MyProtein' would be the final nail in that particular coffin.

    EDIT: I guess Huel's turned out to be more of a 'hipster cool Instagram tit' thing. You can't win!

    Matte black factory powder coat on my Pursuit Champion is brilliant (resists chips, stays matte) but my partner's black (2015 IIRC) Pre Cursa chips and glosses up at the slightest knock.
    Maybe the paint finish has improved since then.
