2nd Servicing for Secteur (14th December 2014)

Everything feels amazing again! Many thanks to Hadron Cycles servicing. My local bicycle shop have done another tremendous job just like last year.

Have received a few disappointing stories from friends about the major chain stores recently which helped push me towards getting it done by people I trust.

Family Xmas in Fleet (7th December 2014)

Lumia 800

Mix and match with Lumia 820 bits (both boxes in plain box, in big box)






Spin Xmas (7th December 2014)

A rather modest setup in East London but still had 50 stalls! In some ways more appealing for the more modest venue and independent retailers.

Lost my Cycle Computer (1st December 2014)

There goes another Cateye Strada Wireless cycle computer, rattled out of the 1 year old bracket. Walked back to work beside Euston Road. No sign of it. Would be squashed by now, anyway. At least I have closure from knowing it’s beyond hope.

Carried my sad stroll all the way back to the company car park. There it was! On the ramp to get up to street level. I had walked it up today, my hand around the stem, must’ve knocked it out without hearing.

It was completely fine, not squashed and not even a little bit stolen! Made for a long commute but has made my day – I didn’t give up, neither in terms of searching nor in my hope against hope for the honesty of strangers.

This calls for a celebration. Cyber Monday, maybe I can buy the next model up! (Not really.)
