    We are into month 2 of feliway atomisers.

    Cat has had a shift in behaviour and gone from shouty meowy gently punch you in the face, to having a tantrum and turning into a hissy spitty stamp my feet and spin around demanding pain.

    Did leave some biscuits in his high up cave several days back. so far he stands on the bed sniffing the air and looking, but hasn't found the biscuit yet. So he's abandoned that spot.
    The tantrums seem to mean "feed me NOW" or "let me out, but i don't know if i want to go out, but you can feed me first"
    He's about 10 years old and not liking so much our new rural location with not so many cats about.

    Do have Peregrene falcons ripping pigeons apart in the garden so maybe thats spooked him.

    @coventry_eagle being aware of ceeway already means i am aware of their quirky system for ordering and that one does not just rock up. Also no longer near london so mail order only for me.

    @Tijs i think you right, this seemed the logical place to start.

    Any pointers on frame building supplies in the UK.

    Aware of Ceeways.

    Anywhere else the builders of the forum go to ?
    We are talking bottle bosses and cable guides not full tube or lug sets. Toying with adding some extra mounts to my steel frame at home with a gas torch.

    Being picky about 25.4 and flat did limit the selection.

    Nitto are mostly 26mm and/or don't accept bar end levers. And have bar drop.
    Few others at 26mm from Profile that do accept bar ends and flat, no drop.
    31.8 I don't like the centre butting and step down to standard diameter, tried a couple out but nope for me.

    So the Somas, 25.4, flat/no drop, no stepped butted centre section, stack of sizes from 36cm - 44cm in silver or black.
    I went for 40cm coming in at 296grams on my kitchen scales. A quick flex test and stiffer than the very old 38cm Sakae Road Champions that have been Chopped and flopped and are slightly bent.

    Ordered late Thursday.
    Dispatched Friday via second class Royal Mail.
    Arrived today, Tuesday morning. Custom made box from recycled amazon box.

    A very light weight box.
    Went with Hubjub as never used them before, only wanted the bars at the moment £46 + £3.50 p&p couldn't find many stockists of Soma and Hubjub came in cheapest.
