    The guy at my LBS says this should be the last season for my studded tires, so I'll be getting a new pair of Nokian Hakkapillitas this year. I'll wait until spring, though, hoping for lower prices.

    New Tires, after forgetting to deflate them before flying back from Vegas the tread is delaminating
    New clean bright bar tape, my riding partner is claiming my red bar tape is actually pink
    Shoes, mine are a bit stretched out. Fine for fall/spring when I want to wear heavier socks but a bit sloppy in the summer.
    Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

    I'm looking for a full group of Campy 9 speed to replace the Shimano DA on my Colnago Master XL. Somethings just need to be all Italian. I think Santa understands, but is having a very difficult time finding a full 9 speed group. Santa also says the economy has hit at the North Pole and the Campy 10 & 11 speed stuff are just too expensive right now.

    +1 on the expensive, but it is soooo NICE!

    Indy Fab Steel. Unfortunately I need to unload a Jeep and a pop-up camper which I seldom use. Sounds like close to an even trade to me.

    There is a bunch of small stuff I "need", including brake pads and some tools. The big item is a Quarq power meter crankset. I've narrowed it down to the model (SRAM S975), but need to know which direction I'll be going when I get a real racing bike, because there are so many flavors of bottom brackets these days. Current bike is threaded, and I'd like to be able to swap the crankset between bikes as needed. But, I might just wait, get the Quarq when I get a new bike, and not use it with the current bike. That opens things up for bikes with BB30's and such.

    I am looking to change out my rear cassette to the: Harris Cyclery Century 12 12-30 9-speed Cassette (CS914) $99.95.

    With all the hills we climb here (NH) any help to keep up with the younger guys on lighter bikes is always welcome.

    I don't want anything for any of my bikes. It's bad. I have nothing to greedily acquire. However, I'm toying with the idea of a Great Divide Ride, and, of course, I'd need a new bike for that. I'm thinking a 29er hardtail with disc brakes. Santa?

    Both my wife and I have a Quarq PM. I like it a lot and the Quarq customer service is excellent. The key point on using a power meter is that it provides objective feedback and reliable communication between a coach and athlete. Although, I still have to prepare a qualitative assessment of the ride describing in more old school terms how I felt during the workout. IMO, once one starts paying for third party coaching services and commits the time to training, the PM becomes more important.

The Pro+ PT will allow me to change the unit between bikes fairly easily. The wheel package includes:

    Front=White Ind. H2 F Silver hub laced to a Kinlin XR-300 rim 24f/2X using DT-Comp-Black spokes and DT-12mm-Brass-Silver nipples

    Rear=Pro + hub with Shimano freehub body laced to a Kinlin XR-300 rim 28r/2X using DT-Comp-Black spokes on the Drive Side and laced 2X using DT-Comp-Black spokes on the Non-Drive Side and DT-12mm-Brass-Silver nipples
    With electropack

    Hermes: this next season should be very interesting learning how to train with the PT. In addition to training with power my coach moved my training blocks up to his “elite level” and I’ll be more focused on crits and circuit races as they seem to be my strengths. That could mean some shorter but harder workouts.

    Sounds like a very practical and reliable build. I've debated between the Pro+ hub and the SL+ hub but the $400 for 60 grams is hard to justify. I can get a good deal on the Pro+ so I'll probably go with that laced to a DT Swiss rim using competition spokes. While I would love to have a super light event day wheelset with the PT it just doesn't make sense economically.

    If someone is interested in a wired PT SL let me know.

    I debated getting a Quark but I have 3 road bikes and I know it wouldn't get moved from one to another. Besides, I like how my Shimano cranks shift. I'll stick with the PT for now. When the Garmin pedal spindle powermeter comes out I'll look at it.

    Humm, well the utility/back up bike really could use a "wheel's and hubs upgrade" and a better crankset too.
    Selling the MTB, so no wants there, (except a sale of course! )
    I will have a space for a 2011 Jamis Coda or Coda Sport, once the MTB leaves, alas, gota wait for the "sale" and the income tax refund before the "space" get's filled!
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    Been trying to rack my brains as to what I need for the bikes and there is nothing. Want is a different matter though. But it is a lean Xmas this year so they will have to wait till spring.

    I got to dress up and play Santa at a local nursing home this afternoon. All those old folks got their Christmas gifts handed to them, one at a time. Now, it looks like you guys here all need individual attention from old Santa. It is that time of year, isn't it?

    Ho, Ho, Ho! Merry Christmas!

    Every Feb. is dream time, when new parts & things are made real. This year, it'll be a new h-bar, courier bag, some more tires, maybe even a headset.

    My Dakar XLT has already outlived every car I ever owned, and I think it has a few more years, but I'm in the planning stages, and making a list.

    For a complete bike, I could do a GT Force or a Sette Flite.

    For a build-up, either the SC Nomad frame or the Salsa El Kaboing. Parts pick would vary some according to which one, but the constants would be Time pedals, RaceFace crank, SRAM X.9 or X.0 drivetrain, and BB7's. Azonic Outlaw wheels top the short wheel list, too.

    The latest round was a couple of HD camcorders, now it's time to forget about the accessories, and get down to business on getting a brand new bike, a cargo version is in order.

    I'd like to upgrade my Giant road bike to full Dura-Ace. But that's sort of pricey. I just picked up a used 03 Stumpjumper and I'' have some fun with that next year.

    I am keeping my old Cannondale R500T for good but aI am seriously considering a new Cannondale CAAD series bike. I'd like a nice carbon fiber frame with at least Ultegra or SRAM Red components and maybe a set of nice Psimet Clyde rated wheels. It would be my bucket list final bike and I'd baby it and the R500T as keepers.

    Sorry if my Cannondale obsession upsets anyone but I have always loved the ride and handling of all the 'Dales I have owned. Yes I am strange but then I volunteered for the Marines when I was a teenager and I still race MX on dirt bikes.

    I've never had a problem with the exhaust system. It works too well some time. I have one of those loud, throaty, tuned exhaust systems.
