Good choice of solution. Also minimises dirt ingress etc.

Now go grind your crack.

Do any of you have any plans to travel somewhere hot over the winter months?

Off to sunny Spain after Christmas, have a friend who lives in the mountains inland from Barcelona: Miravet is also in that plan.

On a beautiful day like today (crisp, warm, signs of spring) I'm dreaming of getting away from it all on a little tour.

Last year I was on the '94 Cannondale, with 1.5" "road" tyres (eg, slick). However this year I'm thinking of building my old Kona up with some bigger rubber, and taking to the bridleway's & fire roads. Route TBC - I'm thinking the Pennine Bridleway as it's within riding distance, but there again I could quite easily get down to Wales.......

Anyone else getting a build on, or planning a tour?

No builds (my Marin is fairly unchanged in the past 10 years apart from adding the dyno front wheel).
Tour-wise I'm planning something with No1 son after his GCSEs finish. Thoughts are: Lon las Cymru, another trip in Normandy, or Dieppe on to a couple of the Tour De France stages in Cambrai and Epernay.
