Saw the HM chair posted here couple days ago....leads me go on eBay...and now I have one.

Needed a bit of a wipe down, wheels casters has hair (ordered replacement for £14), but overall, picked it up for £160 total including the cost of wheels! + £15 in fuel.

I imagined something entirely different before I saw a pic of the bike :eek:
Enjoy many miles of safe biking pleasure together :D

Cheers dude, it's an absolute hoot to ride. Anyone who thinks you need 150+hp to have fun is very sorely mistaken :p

I did a little write up in the biker's cafe if you're interested :)

Nice, seen that they've been on offer recently.
Getting the 303 Firecrest with a new bike.
Yeah I got them for a decent price. Not quite as cheap as I've seen in other places but I did it through cyclescheme so it was still a decent deal.

Haven't tried them yet but will take them for a spin tomorrow and see if I notice any difference to my last wheels

A weight vest to help in my Calisthenics journey. It's 20KG of bar weights you can slip out and I can only manage around 10KG at the moment. 4 reps per set. It is MUCH harder that it looks/sounds, I was very surprised (unsurprisingly) but will turbo speed my progress. Using it for everything from pushu-ups/pull-ups to just everyday things to get my body used to the extra weight and brute force muscle fibres to grow stronger quicker from the routine.

Should be out on the trails with the bike wearing it too although I suspect some fool will call the police as it does look like a bomb vest :p

Got a link to that vest @mrk

I've been using a ruck sack for a while now, but that looks a much better solution.
Thats a Gravity Fitness weighted vest, not sure if we are allowed to link? :p
Top result on google is the same vest from the company or the next one down is from Papa Jeff's shop.

Yup from Amazon. Watching the courier carry it to the door is amusing, he looked mighty annoyed at such a small box weighing 20KG :cry:

This is the only thing missing from the HM. Where did you get it from?

Is it solid once fitted?
Yes, but I had to pop the plastic caps off the pivot points and tighten the screws, and now it doesn't move at all.
The manual says it's it's supposed to be "free flowing" and "move with you", but I prefer it to be static and not move at all.

Where I bought it from..


And the Engineered Now web page..

Thats an expensive plastic headrest.
The chair I can understand to some degree (although its rather silly to my low income mind) but a simple headrest being so much?
