    USPS is pretty reliable and I wouldn't worry. Did you insure it?

    Shipping to Puerto Rico usually gets delayed by a few days and all it takes is one missed scan to make it seem like your package stopped moving.

    Besides, it's only been five full business days since it left your hands.

    I did insure it, I've just never shipped there before so I was a bit worried. Thanks!

    To remove the 75s follow these steps, except use a pin spanner instead of a pair of pliers. That guy was being stupid trying to save $8.

    Good luck getting the fixed cup off. Sometimes they're easy and sometimes you need a huge cheater bar or impact tool.

    and then you need one of these to install the protype:

    My 75s came with M8 bolts and not 15mm bolts, so you would need a M8 hex instead. You'll also need a larger adjustable wrench or 1/2" driver to use the Spin Doctor BB tool.

    If you're just installing/removing the 75s/Protype that should be all you need.

    My fork is 1" and my stem is 1 1/8" and my top cap is 1 1/8", so should I use 1 1/8th spacers or 1".

    I know this may be more than you asked for but I'm going into full detail just in case anyone else may be wondering too:

    To use a 1 1/8" stem on a 1" steerer you will need a 1" to 1 1/8" shim and a 1 1/8" top cap. If you plan on using a spacer on top of the stem, that needs to be 1 1/8" as well. Any spacers below the stem must be 1".

    Scrod, I want to order some nice compact road drops from you, 31.8 clamp, for my Langster. I don't care about price, I do care about quality and comfort, and they have to be black. Oh which ones shall I choose?

    I happen to like the Deda RHM02s better than Ergonovas.

    I was going to suggest FSA K-Wings, but after riding with them for a couple weeks I've found that the flats seem just a little too wide(deep) for my taste. And I don't have baby mitts, either. I might need to go with a thinner tape to compensate.

    I find the same saddles comfy without bib as I do with bibs. To me, it's a sign that the saddle is a good fit.

    Yeah, same here. The only thing the chamois does for me (besides flatter my wonderful glutes) is extend the comfort and delay the discomfort. If a saddle doesn't work for me, it's not gonna work, padding or no padding.

    scrod,

    is the 722 RS still being made?

    do they have the same geometry as the TS?
