Bought one of these yesterday to give it a try. We'll see how good it works this afternoon.
Ribble order came in,
Giordana Forma bibs
Giordana Silverline jacket
Red Cinelli Unicanitor for the boy's BMX
1987 (or so) Giant Iguana. $17.50. Needs a new front tire and new pedals, so I'll have to throw another $25 or so at it.
1980ish Free Spirit Sunbird fixed * 1996 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G * 1997 KHS Comp * 1990-ish Scapin * Lemond Buenos Aires Triple
mellow johnny's black bibs, white jersey, cycling cap, & blk knit cap:
Awesome, I love that Google Jersey. I may have to pick one up myself.
Athena 11. reports once the frame is decided on.
Pair of Hammer bib shorts from their clearance section...$34.95 for Voler bibs...yeah baby.
It makes me almost fast.
(And yes...I wave my "Fred" flag proudly with my top-tube panniers.)

Finally put in an order for a Garmin edge 500.
I got a killer deal on a new Easton EC90 SLX fork. It was assembled on a bike for a photoshoot then disassembled and put back in the box. 2 bills later it was mine and now resides on my bike! Now if only the weather will cooperate I can put more than 30 miles on them!
This day will be over... one of these days!
"I have cancer, cancer doesn't have me."
Quote from a Kaiser commercial that reminds me of my mom.
I just ordered Ultegra 6700 Mavic Open Pro wheels and a new Ultegra Compact Crank.
Assos F.I. Uno S5. Finally. Circa $155 shipped. Let us hope it lives up to the hype...
Big tex is going to jail. Fingers crossed.
Kona Jake The Snake (frame and fork only)
Ultegra 6600 Compact crankset and cassette
Ultegra 6700 brifters and derailleurs
Thomson X2 stem, silver
Avid Shorty 6s, front and rear, silver
Raceface Cadence compact bars
Mavic Aksiums, silver
So I guess "my bike" right now consists of nothing more than a silver Thomson Elite seatpost and my Fizik Arione saddle.
I also got a 6700 bottom bracket and some antique brown fizik bar tape for this build, and a freewheel cog and rear brake for my Angus, which is going into single-speed mode and being handed down to my girlfriend.
This is going to be my do-it-all-all-the-time bike. With a 20km (one-way) commute to work, the fixed gear thing got old quick.
I wanted something I could ride all the time. No excuses. Can't wait to put this together.
Except in black.
