    Yeah, fuck that guy. Somebody needs to smack him in the head with a bat. You can then shrug and say, I didn't see you on my bat swing app so its your own fault!

    I was out on the cargo bike this morning doing the nursery drop off. we’ve done about 300 miles together now on the bike and everything is running smoothly. I’ve re rigged the cargo straps so they don’t go under the frame of the bike, they just go round the cargo deck and the steel sub frame of the baby seat. it makes them less obvious and keeps all of the load on the steel Frames.

    Jobs still to do, I need a bigger chain ring, I’m only using the first 3 or 4 gears and it spins out very easily on the flat. Side note, xt 1x11 is fucking brilliant. The last thing I fitted gears to had thumb shifters. 1x11 was so easy.

    Also would like some more cargo space out front, but that needs to not get in the way of me storing it on the front end.

    Anyway a photo with the baby seat folded up after the drop off.

    The drivel he's been spouting about the border, prayer mats, terrorists, cars that can't be caught and women with their mouths taped shut are all scenes from the Sicario sequel

    I watch Sicario 2 over the weekend, did Trump think it was a documentary or something!

    I’ve had some Portland design works fenders fitted for the pasted couple of weeks, as ever they were a pain in the arse to fit to a bike without tabs.

    They do a great job of keep me and the bike clean and dry, but what I don’t understand is how they get so totally covered in shit, all the shit I guess me and the bike would have been covered in, the outside of them are totally caked. Not totally sure how that works.

    Would buy both, if I didn't already have them. Brilliant kit!

    I'm disappointed that I didn't make this connection.
