the Race sub fourm: holiday wish list

In true Pcad fashion whats on the must have bling-tacular wish list for you. Why in this forum? Because I could care less about mtn bike shoes on the road, cool new mirrors, or getting a first set of clipless. Bring on the bike porn.

My list is short and the only way I'm getting it is if I buy it myself
1. Rugamer Zen custom frame

2. Shimano 220 heat molded shoes, I like cause there white nice.

my wish list is pretty basic. I just want a new frame and fork. If someone told me i could pick any frame I wanted I dont know what I would say so I think I will just wish for a nice servicable aluminum race frame like a caad 9 or something. Its too hard for me to pick out a dream bike right now.

i would love to have a pair of lightweights.

some team kits

srm

rollers

Dude, move to Austin. It's amazing how much better my knees are doing here. I went back to Denver for a visit, and they were hurting bad before I got out of the airport.

20.0+, 9.0+, 6+, 5.5+, 5.0+.

And some Reynolds DVs. Or custom built F20s.

Sadly, the last two in the first row seem easier to obtain than anything else. And that won't be fun.

Time for a thread hijack!!!


I have the big brother of those Shimmano shoes and have a complaint. The heel protector on the bottom is nothing more than a glued on slab of rubber that will come off regardless of how careful you are. Half of my team has that shoe and all are having the issue.

Other than that the shoe is great

I just got one of those for FREE last weekend. I was complaining about my crappy mag trainer to the team coach and he goes "stop by my place and pick up a computrainer." I was shocked but needless to say, ecstatic. I love this club/team!

The Most Blingtaculest

- Focused and copious training time I can cash in so I can hang with a certain marked man on the flats by May 20, 2008 (a monstrous but not impossible 30-40 watt increase in FTP)

- More rain (more Tabata on the trainer)
