New oprder - can't wait

Just ordered a bunch o parts to finish off my gf's bikes and my 3. I am excited because this leaves me with only a few small parts and one wheel to finish off the bikes for the year (excluding breakages)

I am buying a new sun rim called the s-type to replace my overweight trailpimp (2 pounds vs 1.3 pounds) Should be interesting to try out. Comes with some cartridge hub on it...(I wish I had a pic sorry)

A bunch of adaptors to get all my brakes working.

Couple of sets of these


A nice TA attached to a ryno lite XL


Got my gf a chainguide finally

A ryno lite rear wheel and another 8in adaptor to upgrade her rear brake. Can't wait, should be a good spring

Cool! Have you used the raceface grips before or just trying them? I haven't seen them before!

I have them on two other bikes. They are a little large so suit my hands perfectly.
