Awesome. Simply awesome. I can't wait to see what that bike is going to look like when it is done.


As for my purchases, I bought a Cateye El-550 headlight and a pair of wooleator socks from performance. With the $20 coupon and my team membership points I ended up saving $34, woohoo!

You working that morning? That means no sleeping over at Best Buy for you!! j/k

Man, I can't stop myself. I just ordered a Bontrager Race Lite Aero front wheel to match the rear. Now I'm looking at getting at Toupe Team. Christmas comes early for me.

i think we've been found out.... the 20% off $50 isn't working this morning.....

however i did get in more orders mon evening and last night

both of these for me for mountain biking:



and some of this to makes the order over $50:

then another order that included one of these for my new m.u.l.e. camelback:

and another one of these to keep my ears warm:

and something for hubby:



i still needed a few cents (like .02 ) so i searched and searched.... and found this to bring my order over $50: Innovations CO2 Cartridge - 12g Non-threaded Price: $0.99

i was trying to place another order from work this morning and the coupon wouldn't work! that's probably a good thing..... (i've placed 9 orders already! 4 should be here in a couple hours! woo HOO!)

what travel did you go with? I have the 120mm. Did you get a shock pump yet? If not, you can borrow mine on Saturday and give it back on the following group ride.

Yah you can use mine, for your next few MTB rides, just carry it in your camelbak so you can make adjustments on the trails. Do a ride w/ LOTS of varity, rock gardens, sand ruts, ect. So you can adjust the shock accordingly. Most shocks lose 5-10psi when you remove them so account for it when you put air into the shock. The one I have loses about 8psi when removing.
