Well, I went to my first ever bike jumble. Good to see half of Retrobike there as well! So what did everyone get? I went for:

Some nice new bars for a road bike, (don't know which on yet.)
A Cinelli stem, slightly longer than the one currently on the Graham Weigh.
Some tiny led lights in case I get caught out as the light fades.
A newish Shimano XT front mech. One of those with the band that tightens.
Mudguards. My first ever set! Off tomorrow to buy pipe and slippers.
A Shimano Positron 400 rear mech, cable and shifter.

I blame Spencer for the Positron 400!

The only bike I bought was one made in Uganda out of recycled tyre wire.

My first one too, was a last minute decision to go, managed to persuade my mom/dad to have the kids for the morning.

I got.....

A right hand M730 crank arm

M650 short cage rear mech

Front wheel comprising of Mavic M231 rim and M563 hub

Change from a tenner for the lot, including my entrance fee :D .

Nice to see a few of you lot there, when's the next one?

Top jumble, I returned home with a pile of shit that I don't need bought with money I don't have. For reasons I can't recall, I turned down a Mavic headset and a sew on patch from the 1993 World Cyclocross Champs.

Next one is in Redditch at the start of March.

http://www.bikejumbles.co.uk/ there's a couple here that I might consider going to.

I could get into a lot of trouble if these were on too regularly, I've got an unhealthy amount of tat hoarded already.....
