So, what was all that fuss about?  What is this Lendrum infatuation nonsense, you ask?  I can imagine my non-spinning readers really have no idea what I’m so excited about, so I just have to take a moment to share.  This is my Lendrum…

It has big knobs for easy adjustments…

And beautifully simple mechanisms…

Flat boots from Duo, size 39, calf width 45cm (Yes, folks, that’s 17″, bigger than my husband’s neck measurement and — even though the rest of me has gone post-pregnancy pudgy — all muscle. They were this diameter even when my bodyfat was down to only 14%. It’s just how God made me. Thank goodness for custom calf-width boot manufacturers like Duo!)
