I just picked up the Topeak Road Morph G pump for my road bike, and it's AWESOME! I originally bought a Topeak Pocket Rocket and didn't like it...

I also picked up the Camelbak Podium Big Chill bottle and it's the best bottle I've ever owned:

Got a Velo 9 so I can keep track of my cycling distance/speed:

...and a BV medium saddle bag to hold my multi-tool, spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, and cell phone (for emergencies):

That's a tough one. Thought stage 2 was going to kill me and then stage 3 nearly did. Whew...

I bought this as an accessory to my road bike; a 2013 Specialized Rockhopper w/WTB 2.3" Vigilante tires in a ghetto tubeless config, PDW mud shovel fenders, Oury grips, and upgraded platform pedals. It's not my photo but it's identical to the bike in the pic (sans the fenders).

'round here there's so much sand and ice on the roads still that you're taking your life into your hands trying to ride on the streets or even the local bike path. I was getting tired of not being able to ride so I bought a winter whip. I wanted a fat bike but with the Vigilante tires it's enough for me to ride on roads that I'd be eating pavement with my road bike.

I haven't figured out why thought but for the second time around I ended up with a black bike with white trim. :)

After riding mountain bikes for the last 20 years, I took the plunge and purchased a 2009 Scott Addict r4. Can't wait for the snow to melt so I can get used to riding this fast machine! http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=368233

Replacing the freakishly wide stock Cowbell 3 bars on my Salsa with one of these:

Also a can of Frame Saver, while the bike is disassembled for a drivetrain upgrade.

Now to decide between the 5703 triple and the 6800 compact double. Hmm...

Why is the 5700 compact double not an option?

Coming to terms with my tire pressure obsession.

Ill say... I think I like my triple a little bit more. Most of the hills in my area are a bit too big for the large chain ring (they are doable) but not big enough for a compact to be very useful. There are a few where the compact shines through.

My first choice would be the 6800, for the sublime shifting. But that would mean sacrificing the 30t triple for a 34t compact double and, at minimum, the additional cost of a new 11 speed compatible rear hub/wheel rebuild.

I currently have 3x9 Sora on that bike, so if I went with the 105 I'd stay with a triple and still keep compatibility with my existing wheelset (which isn't "all that", but is certainly workable for now).

Decisions, decisions...

Visually, that has to be the best gear calculator I've ever seen! :thumb:

I haven't bought anything since Friday, but I almost did on Sunday. I'm trying to talk myself out out of new shoes/pedals - going from SPD to SPD SL.

I wish that was me. I just bought another wheel set, some Boyd Altamonts for my aluminum bike. I think I have finally run out of things to buy. New bike, carbon clinchers, alloy wheel set, carbon cages, carbon bars, pedals, New saddle, shoes and so on. Nice to have the money but I am done. I do not need or want anything for once.
