Yesterday I got the bike back, with the new cranks. Shiny new cranks Typically, because it was the first time I'd been riding the bike for a few weeks, it pissed it down on the way home. And at one point the chain jumped off a chainweel and bent my front mech :( However a bit of bending with a chunky allen key and some twiddling of the cable tension seems to have rescued from that.

So all set for Sunday, I guess. It is of course completely idiotic to be doing a 5K+10K+5K duathlon when I'm still supposedly working my way up to a 10K run, but never mind. Anyone want to come along to Richmond Park on Sunday to point and laugh at the fat bloke on the wrong bike?
