Pannier rack update

I think that I have sorted out the pannier rack problem, after  e-mailing lots of different on-line shops and posting to the Cycling Weekly forums. It turns out that 29″ tyres are the same as 700c, why they have two names, I have no idea.  So thanks to everyone that helped sort it out for me!

I would like to say a big thank-you to the two on-line shops that did get back to me. Them being Chain Reaction Cycles and Wiggle.  I am also a wee bit pissed off that the Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative, did not get back to me, after spending so much money on a new bike from them.

It looks like I will be getting “LifeLine Alloy Disc Brake Rear Rack” from Wiggle.

New bike delivery date

I have just got an email from the Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative, saying that my bike will be delivered on Wednesday the 1st of July.

I can’t wait, since I have not had a new bike since July 2001, when I got a Trek 810 from Trossachs Cycles, for £199. Which I don’t often use, since it’s the bike that I keep in Scotland, for using when I go to see my family.

New bike for the End to End cycle

I have just gone and spent £549.99 on a new bike for doing the John O’Groats to Lands End cycle. I am getting it from Edinburgh Bicycle.
