TroisV Repair Shop: wheelbrows edition

Trois Vs are all a-quiver with anticipation. Yes! We are all in the same continent Yes! It's the Ryder Cup! Yippee! We have no idea what that is, but we are still heading for Wales, come rain or shine, or as the Met Office assures us, rain.

In order to practice operating in such a damp environment, Dr Matt headed to his favourite croissant shop, Condor, and stocked up with saddle bags, alloy stems and, most importantly, Crud Roadracer Mk 2 (with Deano Downing on the box). Jez pointed out that they now took Amex, for those interested. And the chap behind the counter told me that Carradice bags (wot I had purchased) last for ages: his parents still had their from their honeymoon. Not sure what I think about that.

All are now affixed, although some saddle swapping will be necessary tomorrow. And for those who wrestled with Crud Roadracers before, fear not: the new ones fit very easily. Dr Matt can now ride anywhere in the pack: fellow Trois V members, please adjust your SKS's accordingly.
