Well done :)

Clear out....

Some lovely stuff I have on flea bay at the moment and ending on the 14/7/09.

Brooks Swift Ti £51 so far...
Surly 20t 3/32" fixed sprocket £4.99...

Salsa 135mm x 40deg stem £9.99....

ACS Claws 20t freewheel £4.99 and no bids so far...

25.4mm > 31.8mm handlebar shims £4.99 (£20 new!)

One thing I am selling that I can't sell on Ebay is my Leatherman Supertool. This has to be 10years old but is in great condition. Some burnishing of the handles and the serrated blade has a couple of nicks in it. It has had lots of use but now sits in the drawer as I am now desk based. Other than that is is 100% spot on and ready for antother decade of use. Comes with leather belt pouch (also in great nick) and all for £30GBP including first class recorded post with in the UK. Over 18s only please :)

Progress backwards

I am simplifying stuff, parring away the edges. Minimal stove set-up thanks to Backpackinglight and bags on their way from Eric and the 6speed singlespeed finished.

36:17 and 34:19 freewheel, 34 or 36 :18 fixed. All with minimal (or no in case of freewheel ratios) brake fettling. Still not really a geared bike but should piss off the singlespeed purists. Good.

Found this on Kent's blog announcing that he will be at the TD next year:

If I stray away too far from you, don't go and try to find me.
It doesn't mean I don't love you,
it doesn't mean I won't come back and stay beside you.
It only means I need a little time
To follow that unbroken line
To a place where the wild things grow
To a place where I used to always go.
