Look at what showed up at the doorstep.

Coincidentally on my birthday..
The Shipping label was funny too. An attempt to evade customs I figure..

I am going from 105 to Rival, I am guessing at the step its probably an upgrade for me.

Its kind of a birthday gift and some of FOO appreciates bike stuff. Besides things, in the road forum, would rapidly degenerate to an e-pissing contest between two individuals, neither of whom would be me.
