Whilst I was having a bit of a general catch up with my friend Tom a couple of days ago we somehow got onto the subject of me always wanting to use an old Campagnolo downtube shifter as a keyring. I’m not breaking new ground here I know, it’s just a silly little indulgence that I have no shame allowing myself. Anyway, the seed was obviously well and truly planted as today I was presented with a brand new keyring!!! To say it made me smile would be an understatement. In fact, the smile was more about the thought involved than the keyring itself.

Thankyou Tom, you’re a gem. I think you’ll make a fantastic Dad!
