I recently bought a leaf blower / vacuum from the Middle of Lidl - not only does it do what it says on the tin, the blower function is bloody handy for drying off your bike after you've washed it :D Rather like a masculine hairdryer for yer bike!

(that's assuming that you ride your bike, it gets dirty and hence you wash it....) :)

I've got some decent kit, bit of snap on and halfords professional but a few years back in Lidl I bought a cheap tray of compact sockets including ratchet arm. When I opened it up it had a full set of screwdriver and bits, Allen keys and star keys and deep sockets with 1/2", 3/8" and 1/4inch drive. Think it was £15 and I probably use it more than anything else.

Unfortunately we don’t have any of these bargain basement supermarkets in the IOM, but I did acquire a leaf blower from a former next door neighbour when they moved which I have never used. It hadn’t occurred to me to use it as suggested. Might well give it a go as, I am sure you know well Al, I ride all year round rain or shine.
An ‘inzane’ number of Zanes (all of which could run)
10 from Breganze (all of which can run)
Several other project bikes
1 x BMW C600 Sport Highline maxi scooter (for comfort and reliability)
1 x Benelli Tre Tornado 900 (cos it should have been the ‘new’ Jota)
