New Stuff...it's like pr0n to me!

I basically got what I wanted. The Giro Atmos, I looked at a few of the other high end models and just went with the atmos. I also go the IDO lock on grips and the Can Creek Ergo lock on bar ends. I then got my SRAM X gen f/d and PC.69 Chain so that my whole drivetrain minus cranks will be SRAM. I can't wait to break my bike down and put the new stuff on it

I love those Cane Creek bar ends - got 'em on my hybrid. Kind of pricey though... what did you pay for them?

I can vouch for that chain. It's a good one. I have a small stash of the PC-59 chains and like them better than Shimano's HG-73.

PWRD, tell us how you like the CC bar ends, I'v been looking at getting some new ones. Mine are all scuffed up and it's an excuse to get some bike parts

Those bar ends are worth every cent, had them for about a year now and been worth every cent.

Let us know what you think of the X-gen front mech., my next bike will be all non shimano so I'd like to use that with an X.0 setup.

Anyways...this those bar ends they're made to work with ODI lock ons they lock onto the end where the cap would be, so that should have one hell of a clean finished look. I've heard so much about them and they looked so good, what really attracted me was the fact that they're not metal, and have rubber around them...you know like normal grips do! So they're not hot in the summer or cold in the winter. I have to get motivated to swap all this stuff now that I have it
