    I loooooove my new Turbo.

    Needs more drop, bro.

    Ha! It totally looks like I've got about a foot of drop in that pic. I don't.

    Hey Scrod, I just noticed Retrogression is carrying Lizard Skins DSP bar tape...


    I found these over it bike Island, and I was interested to know about the double colored stuff... Does it fade from white to the color, or is it abrupt? Have you seen them? I can't for the life of me find a photo via google of the stuff. I'm definitely thinking about picking up some for my new build, but I just don't know which route to take... Possibly the white to blue or white to red.

    From what I've seen, it's an abrupt color change - designed to have one color on the drops and the other color on the tops separated by hoods/levers (if wrapped correctly).

    Damn, Squirelli and I found a photo... you are right, its an abrupt color change. Well than perhaps I'll just have to go with white. Thanks.

    Hey Scrod, what do you think about the '4x' Clip/strap combo? Any thoughts before I purchase?

    I used a set for a while and they held up really well. They're the same straps as your typical All-city, Origin 8, etc double straps without the branding.

    Thanks for the info! Would you recommend single or double straps? What's the difference? (if any)

    When I first started using doubles I thought they felt bulky but they did grow on me. A good quality single strap is probably just as secure as doubles but to me, doubles "feel" more secure.

    It may not be a "one time thing" but this run is very limited. We may come out with different colors and such somewhere down the line but it's hard to say when.

    I'm not sure. Our distributor is having a hard time getting them and I'm under the impression that Deda has stopped making them.

    One last thing... what about those windbreakers? I remember 'em from a while back and I hope you will get some more soon.

    Oh yeah, I messed up typing. I meant I heard about them in this thread earlier, and I'm wondering if (and when) they are available.
