Helmet (French, hoodatunkit)
Stronglight Impact crankset from Ribble... very pleasantly surprised. Very nice aluminum Stronglight chainrings, and it came as 5 arm instead of the 4 arm shown on the website, which I think looks better. Very good deal, tempted to stock up on a few more for future projects. Also got some Fyzik bar tape. Took a while to get through this time, usually I get Ribble stuff in a week or so but this time it was more than two.
Here it is on my Miyata Triplecross (built it up today, finally got all the parts)
