Everyone with new toys!!


At the spaceship that is at 7.50, I will peel off to Hanno as well on the way back around.
OK, sounds good!


Is this the station you mentioned before that goes to Shinjuku?
Yes, at Oume we'll catch the Chuo Line.

Yeah, looks like a good route.

Pro-tip; if you get Dura Ace 9000 and expect the front mech to fitting system to work with your frame out the box, there is a high chance that it will not, as Shimano have not thought it through and you will end up having to use a black cable tie to secure the metal pressure plate on the seat tube in true DIY style. Grrrrr.
