Yeah, thankfully that was my 13 yo sons knee... He learned a painful lesson for me so I don't have to... lol. The stitches come out Friday.

It's what kids are for isn't it?

Some Enduro bearings, 2 x 608 & 2 x 626, for the Canyon Nerve XC of course, which has been in an unrideable state due to laziness for what seems like far far far far too long :-(

Look. These were intentionally bought as spairs for when the ones I forgot I had already bought unexpectedly fail. Oh no some of the pivot bolt threads have been gnawed at by evil pixies. I'm going to have to order some more. Oh no it's going to take weeks to arrive from Germany because Canyon UK won't have them in stock because most ham fisted idiots get the LBS to do shit for them. Oh no. Oh hang on what's in this package here at the back of my drawer, third drawer down? Why! Who ever would have thought it!?. A pair of pivot bolts! Fresh and unopened. My past self saves the day! Just need to give the chain a good scrub now...

New One Industries Knee pads and a pair of 5:10s for Anakin, they got their first outing over the weekend and both score a big fat thumbs up, no horrible rubbing from the pads and more grip than a randy monkey from the shoes when used with her DMR V12s. Bonza! Cheers CRC.

I treated myself to a replacement set of brake pads for the Shimano Zee 4-pots, they are cheap from Superstar with 4 pairs coming in at £18, but they are not finned (the original Shimano ones have the Ice-tech finning gubbins). Weighing in at under 10 stone as I do, and riding like a big old Nancy McJessie, this is no problem at all so now the bike's stopping like it should. Oh yes, like it's hit a brick wall. As if I didn't ride slow enough to begin with...

I also live on the biggest and steepest hill in Exeter, so breaking in those new pads was no problem, though the gritter lorry came past just as I wanted to do a quick run, so I did it on the pavement instead, not getting salt on my nice bike.

That's how I roll, on the pavement...
Keep it foolish...
