    You got a good deal. Got a set of these a couple months ago off the Bay, and you're right ... they are very, very sweet! Less than 1400g for the set too. Don't feel the need for carbon wheels anymore.

    Now ... why did I purchase this? Oh yeah, it was the last one in my size that they had. Just missed the red/black/white one they were selling by a day. that's what one gets by thinking about a purchase for several weeks before jumping. Now, I'm stuck with a "blue/white/black" Pinarello. How un-Italian is that? It's like having a Bianchi in any color other than Celeste.

    Great frame. I have an F4:13. I love it.

    I ordered some Presta extenders for my HED wheels this morning.

    Ah, my Performance order came in yesterday...

    dsc_4251.640.jpg
    Set of Performance Forte Strada K kevlar-belted tires to replace my grudgingly-gotten Contis, which have proven to be impervious to absolutely NOTHING found on the roads around here, and are wearing out (sidewall cords are starting to show and fray). I *really* wanted my beloved Avocets, but apparently their tires are no longer available, alas. A local roadie whose opinion I greatly respect very highly praised these for an all-around riding/training tire for next to no money. Works for me!

    dsc_4252.640.jpg
    Picked up a longer stem for my 14yo's bike, which with the acquisition of a bike for the 17yo is now redundant (I can just swap the stems on the two bikes and get both girls better fits).

    dsc_4253.640.jpg
    Here's what drove the order - a shiny new Giro Stylus. I've been wearing the same Prolight (with the fabric covers!) for 23 years now. My wife has been ragging on me to get a new brain bucket since the foam *does* age and lose its effectiveness as the years go by.

    Attachment 211330
    Got a pair of shorts for my 17yo, which naturally turned out to be the wrong size. We're going to Hotlanta next week so I'll swap the shorts and take the now-superfluous stem back.

    I totally get the Italian factor, but I would much rather have the one they made less of. Either way, that is one beautiful beautiful frame. Enjoy the hell out of that thing.

    My new helmet has arrived! LAS Squalo 2.2 White/Silver/Carbon.

    Took it for a 25 miler this morning and my initial reaction is I'm ecstatic. Helmet fits perfectly, the retention system is awesome, and the helmet vents WAY better than my old Bell. Weight is good too, as it disappeared on my head like a good helmet should. So far I'm happy!

    My first Capo kit was my team kit from school which fit me perfectly and I couldn't be happier with it except I didn't care for the silicon leg grippers too much. My second Capo kit was the Verona from Bonktown with the compression bands which I really liked so I decided to do a special order for myself since I get really good pricing. Hopefully I won't need to buy more for a while. The chamois is very nice and padded plus the fabrics are great; they're very breathable and hold up well. The jerseys fit me like a glove as opposed to the Castelli stuff I tried which was pretty loose in the body and tight in the chest and bunched up so that was a no brainer for me.

    (Well) used 61cm Fuji Team Issue Frame. Mid 2000's. (that's both the year and original retail price.)

    My LBS owner gave me an "oh, what the hell we've had this sitting around forever" price of $100.

    First CF bike. And I have a groupset and wheels waiting for a frame!

    I just ordered new CAPO Padrone kit from Competitive Cyclist today on sale.
    I also had a 20% off coupon so it came out to 45% off including shipping.
    Sweet!

    The ladies will become moist when they see me ride by in this.

    Yeah baby, who's your CAPO?

    The steal of the week! You need to post pics when you get it built up and on the road. Which groupo? Congrats.

    A box of 25 of each. They things are the best thing I've tried to date.

    Uvex Boss Race.

    215 grams



    Tried three different Giros including the Prolight, Atmos, and Aeon. I could not get comfortable in any of them.

    The Uvex Boss Race fits my head perfectly and is the most comfortable helmet I have tried to date.

    Love the strap adjustment and the buckle mechanism. And lightweight!

    Replaced a 1.5 year old Bell that was heavy and not very well ventilated. It was cheap though!
