The last of the big bike shop spenders!

New hand-grips on the bicycle, well, cast-offs from someone else's fancy custom upgrade. Removing my old ones was a more-than-tedious job, so I thought I had better up-sell myself with coffee and a muffin right there at the LBS. 

Sipping away: entertained by a couple buying a wee bike for their wee son (and it's not even Christmas!) Dad not-so-subtly hinting to his boy that surely he prefers the one with red trimmings, not yellow. And it seems that training wheels are now officially known as 'stabilisers' - I will have to adapt all my analogies!

My cycling housemate approves - now he can get back to nagging me about maintaining other parts of my bike!
