As a follow-up to my last post, today I received a set of SL-6400 shifters from nlerner.

I got the 110mm Nitto Pearl in for my Calfee Tetra Pro build. And sorta cycling related, the VA sent me a BP machine to track my blood pressure with. You know it's too high when the docs want you checking it 3 times a day, LOL! This is forcing me to reconsider putting a winter bike back together because I hate and suck at riding inside during the winter.

It's the little things that count. Found these for a great price from the Bike Recyclery in Portland, to go on the Specialties TA cranks on my Motobecane Grand Record.

A copy of H H England, Cycling Manual, 24th edition (London: Temple Press, 1960)




(Not my copy; instead, a photo that I nicked from Amazon. But my copy's the same.)

Fascinating stuff. (Well, moderately fascinating: unfortunately there's no mention of the Rough Stuff Fellowship or anything like it. But fair enough, for a book aimed at newcomers.)

According to the copyright page, the first edition came out in 1917. Googling doesn't turn up any sign of a 25th (or 26th) edition; certainly none is listed at Worldcat.

Some searching on eBay resulted in great deals on the wheel bearings needed to rebuild (a few times) my Mavic Ksyrium wheels.

Wiggle LifeLine Essential Track Pump in blue:https://www.wiggle.co.uk/lifeline-essential-track-pump
Ordered on 25th, for the massive sum of 9.99 + 3 postage

It actually works, and it seems my thumb wasn't reading the pressure correctly.
(Yes I have a gauge or two, but they're a pain to use).
My first track pump, and a lot faster than my Bluemels 3 frame pump.

The wheels roll noticably better at the correct pressure.

Not C&V at all, but I just got one of these to play with. I've gone down a rabbit hole of finding a minimalist battery taillight to act as a backup to the dyno-powered taillight on my rando bike. Here, absolute brightness isn't as important as something that can last for a whole 1200km brevet without intervention:



The Cygolite Dice TL is about a cubic inch in size and weighs about an ounce, so it won't be very intrusive. But its "Group Mode" is claimed to last up to 65 hours(!) Modern lighting is amazing.

All the parts I need to rebuild the rear wheel of the SilverAce. A Sturmey Archer RXL-RD5 5-speed drum brake hub.
And a 36H Sturmey Archer Dynohub for the Gazelle A because the 28H and 32H I already had wouldn't fit a 36H rim.

I took a flyer on a miscellaneous lot on eBay which arrived yesterday. In addition to a Shimano Pocket Pro Pocket Vise




and some pink Cateye handlebar tape and plugs




the package also included a Blackburn rear view mirror and some very light Minoura tire levers.

A cheap 7-Eleven jersey



And a few dozens storage boxes for my hot wheels. They're going into hibernation for a while.
