New custom frame by builder Paul Taylor: Reynolds carbon top/seat tubes, Columbus Spirit/Life steel remainder.
Build will be campy Record with a custom wheelset but I'm not sure what I'm gonna build yet. The fork in pic is a placeholder until I decide what to use, probably an Edge. I have a brand new Easton SLX90 nano-carbon setting here but those Edges have caught my eye...
I ordered them from PBK. They are new for Spring, so taking a chance since there aren't any reviews of them yet. We'll see how they feel when I get them
^That frame is goegeous.

my new project -- 1984 Serotta Club Special (Frameset only)
"...I thought about evening when the boys wash up, sing, eat, raise a cup of wine in honor of love and life, and waiting at the door, the bicycle, stilled, because only moving does it have a soul, and fallen there it isn't a translucent insect humming through summer but a cold skeleton that will return to life only when it's needed, when it's light, that is, with the resurrection of each day." -- Pablo Neruda
that serrota is amazing. great picture too!
I finally did a 2 mile run in my trisuit. very cool. I think it helped my performance and form! of course i wore shorts and t-**** over it but I knew it was there. plus the yellow pin stripe on my legs showed a little under the shorts and the t-shirt didn't get messy with sweat cuz he tri's top acted as a barrier. I think I looked quite good.
cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
white oakley halfjackets w/ clear replacement lenses.
giro lx gloves
more than 2 handfuls of clifshots.
2 michelin ivory pro race 3s are on the way from PBK.
debating getting the mavic ksyrium sl wheelset by this weekend.
those gloves are b!tch!n...
Winter is on the way here - a few things to make riding more safe or comfortable.
Got the front one after being impressed by the rear light I've had for a while.
I use 3/4 bibs quite a lot and needed some more. My favourite Giordanas aren't available at the moment, but these DHB ones from Wiggle are very good value.
Good Sugoi quality, as always.
Pair of Sidi Genius 5 (I think) shoes. Almost new condition, just a few scuffs on the right shoe.
Set of Speedplay X2 pedals and cleats. Appears to be very little wear.
Got all of it for $100.
Note to anyone interested: the summer lightweight jersey should be sized up from the classic!

Big tex is going to jail. Fingers crossed.
When ever on a trip , I can't avoid bike shops.. Most recent foray into REI in the US, a new set of REI gloves, another Topeak Morph Pump, and a smallish sized handlebar bag, along with a set of Panaracer Pasela Tour Guard Tires. I was eyeballing a Specialized Tri Comp Touring bike. Next time.

Got the Garmin Edge 500 bundle with HRM and cadence sensor.
A set of these, as my old ones are starting to show minor perforations and have become more black than yellow:
Though this time I decided to go with plain black as it has too much of a Hot Wheels feel to it.
For the mountain bike:
A few hundred of these
And quite a few spokes to go with that
mine was earlier this week; a back rack for my cruiser.
anyone know a good place to find a retro-ish springer fork? i'm having trouble finding one with fender eyelets at the top and bottom of the fork. all suggestions welcome!
