It’s often said that all good things must come to an end, and so I type this with a heavy heart as the curtains draw on my time at BikeRadar, and consequently the Home Wrench series.
Before I move on to my next adventure (in cycling), I thought long and hard about how to say goodbye to this series in an exciting manner. Readers, I drew a blank.

Leverage is worth the expense
Quality tools can save you money
Don’t ignore real people
