Latest etube software update is pretty decent and feature-rich, good overview here.

Cool this is the bike nerding i need to immerse myself in again. living somewhere without a garage/bike room has killed this for me

FCC filing has been made and approved for a new shimano wireless module and rear derailleur, will see in 180 days when the details are no longer under NDA the specifics but it’s thought to be dura ace 12 speed. Maybe a TDF release bundled up with shimanos 150 birthday celebration.

+1 on exposure, although I currently use rear only (TraceR).

Got a Cateye Volt 1200 upfront, it's like having car headlights on my bike but overkill for most rides tbh, want to get a smaller 'be seen' light. Might get a matching Trace, also like the cleanliness and form factor of this.

PSA Would avoid Moon. Bought one of their Moon Nebulas, broke within a week, and customer service is essentially non-existent. Owned ultimately by Raleigh, but they'll pass the buck to the actual company, who are based in China, who'll pass you back to Raleigh etc and website is utter shit.

Back to using my Lezyne Zecto Drives, but will go Exposure next time I need a set.

I use a pair of these dhb Extreme Weather Neoprene Overshoes. Does the trick. Any overshoe is worth investing in for colder months.

I managed to pick up some of those cream Adidas Velosamba in a 9.5, which is probably a size too small in these. Long shot but was wondering if anyone has them in 10-10.5 and wants to trade?

I went through some dogshit without realising back in January and it sprayed up passed my mudguard onto my clothes. I haven't braved a bike ride since Laughing out loud

I'll have another go when it's summer and the terrain is a little easier to navigate.
