More bike-maintenance news (whooo the excitement): Saturday evening I replaced my front brake cables (inner and outer) and helped R do his too. But I could not get my front brakes adjusted properly afterwards. Tinkered for hours, enlisted help of bike-knowledgable neighbours, consulted both the Bike Book and Sheldon Brown. Couldn't get it to happen. Went cap-in-hand to nice Bike Shop on Sunday morning, and it turns out my wheel needs re-dishing ie it has gone a funny shape but if I pay nice man in bike shop 8 quid plus vat he will fix it for me hurrah for nice-man-in-bike-shop.

Eating not too bad this weekend, and no crips yet today wow.
