    Vibe 7s round. In white (not my first choice, but they were cheaper and they'll be 90% covered by tape anyway)

    That moment when you receive a new stem in the mail and your back spasms because it's too long

    If your back spasms because the stem is too long, you have more serious problems.

    Maybe spasm was a bit strong, definitely between twitching and completely relaxing though

    Y'know, take it out the package and your eyes pop out of your head, jaw drops to the floor, back does this twitchy spasm thing to remind you of the last time you rode two hours after being hit by a cruciatus curse you earned the night before slamming the stem after reading the rules...

    Maybe it's just me

    DAMN nice looking. I'm going to have to live vicariously, I just told my wife this is the first February in 3 years that I haven't craved a "new" bike.

    On topic - got a new Red Aeroglide WiFli RD coming in the mail, and a 11-32 cassette to match and a new chain to tie it all together. On to the Palm Springs Tramway!

    You don't have to explain what you meant to the old-timers. I get it, but why was the stem too long? They send you the wrong size or what?

    Size was right, 120mm 26.0 dia. 22.2 insert as described, just a buyer error on my part.

    The old center to center instead of end to end mistake (my loss gain your gain anyone if anyone is in the market http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=331139649931)

    Time for me to shop for a 100mm one.

    It's actually center to where the clamp sits against the front of the stem.

    Got my Lezyne multitool yesterday- the carbon/Ti one that costs $99, I forget the model. Sweet! The packaging it came in was even deluxe. It weighs quite a bit less, while doing way more, that the tools I had in my bag. Plus (let's just be geeks here)-- it's carbon! Titanium! It's.... cool!

    When you are pushing the boundaries of cycling, like I'm pushing the boundaries of cycling, a weight reduction in the toolbag shaves precious hundredths of a second.
    Every time that wheel turn 'round,
    Bound to cover just a little more ground!

    You don't have a car following you with all the tools and a spare bike?

    Awesome. They really are great bars, very light and stiff. The top bar is wonderful when you need a short break for your hands.

    Well it seems like the tires on both sets of wheels are about to be done so decided to try something new vs. my Bontrager's (though I've been very happy with them). For my tubeless wheels trying out the Hutchison Fusion 3 in 23mm, for the November Rail's I ordered some GP 4000s II's in 23mm. I had planned on setting up the Rail's tubeless as well but decided against the expense since I had to order the 2nd set.
