I went to the London bike show on Saturday as part of my birthday weekend. I expected to come back with base layers and a new helmet to be honest. But I didn't.
What I came back with was a lifeproof case for my soon to be out of contract iPhone 4. Not even 4s. 4.
I had expected I'd upgrade at the end of my 2 year contract to whatever apple had released at that point, but the cost of 4G contracts has put me off. I have a working phone which has apps to blog, socialise, navigate, communicate and track my training. I don't need a camera upgrade. What I need is to be able to strap this to my bike as a GPS. I don't need a lighter phone, it needs to be shockproof and waterproof. Like swimming waterproof.
So I bought a weather and shockproof case and a bike mount.
I also wasn't overawed by the super light racing bikes. Ok so the SPIN titanium bikes are pretty special. I came back resolved to get a brompton and go back to transportation cycling as my method of choice.
So I went to a market place for the new and ended up resolving to be more like my old self. Admittedly still needing to buy new stuff though. :)
