Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Starting the heavy lifting of my Franken-bike conversion (with the tools I'm accumulating I might wrench on the side )

SRAM Red Compact Crankset
SRAM 1070 11-25 Cassette
SRAM GXP BB
SRAM 1070 Chain

Park External BB Tool
Park Cartridge/Shimano BB Removal Tool
Park Chain Tool
Park Chain Whip
Park Crank Pulling Wrench
Park Master Link Pliers
Park Cassette removal Tool

(I really miss having the access to this stuff from when I used to wrench at a LBS, you never really appreciate it until you have to pay for it)

Other odds and ends:

Degreasing Fluid
Garmin Edge 500 Bundle
Giordana Custom Pro Jersey
Giordana Laser Bibs
De Marchi Contour Socks

I was really upset when I thought I might have the face the BB shell. That would be one tool that I simply could not justify purchasing.

This is installed incorrectly, it should be flush (I shouldn't be able to see the bearing).

I bought some batteries for the PowerTap Pro that I was given... yes - given. Ha. Ha ha. Ha ha ha! It's wired, not wireless, but I can overlook it for the price.

I already tried this one as a back up to CO2. Seems to work just fine.


A pair of these. They seem pretty strong and thick.

Set of SRAM Apex Callipers. Postman should be delivering them today! A small upgrade for the Dolce.

The above mentioned Apex brakes have arrived and I've just finished installing them. Seem to be a major improvement over the Promax junk that was on the bike before. I think this is largely due to the swissstop pads that Apex brakes ship with as standard. All in all fantastic value having paid £20 per calliper - the same cost as it would be for me to purchase the swiss stop pads alone, at least around these parts anyway.

Compression tights. They sure feel nice after a long day in the saddle. Like an all leg hug...

Where did you get those tights? I've been looking some that are decent.

A pair of these should be waiting for me on the porch when I get home from work today....
