Bought a new set of wheels today from Excel Sports Boulder. 2007 Record hubs, DT Swiss RR 1.1 rims, and DT spokes. Should be real nice and be here within about a week!

I lost my white PI Optik long sleeve jacket a couple of weeks ago so I went out and bought a replacement at Incycle......Louis Garneau Wind Chill jacket. Not quite as light and compactable as the Optik but this one has rear pockets, stretchy side panels, and I love the burnt orange color.

Tres chic, George. I like the color, too... something a bit different. I don't think I have any LG gear... how's the first impression on quality?

Hey thank you! Quality is very similar to the Pearl Izumi, stitching is good....in fact this jacket uses ripstop nylon just like the PI jacket I lost. I'm already liking this jacket over the PI in that, besides having rear pockets, it has a 2-way zipper so I can unzip the bottom if I wanted to retreive something from my jersey pocket.

Just pulled the trigger on this bad boy....
Actually its is fair shape...wheels need truing...derailleur needs work....tires are rotted...hb tape is bad...
I think this a 1991 or 92 model...but cant find much info...
Shimano 105 front and rear...mostly carbon..but heavy...
I am most curious to try the Brooks saddle...but dont think this will ever see the road...I will get it fixed up enough to work on my trainer...so for $50 plus about $40 at the lbs...seems like a good deal..

I saw a nicely restored Cadex at the Borrego Springs Century. The owner had replaced the aluminium fork with a carbon fork. He liked his a lot.

That chain looks super effective going around the backside of the derailleur like that.

ps. If you just can't get comfy on that Brooks saddle, I'd be willing to take it off your hands.

(pps. the saddle alone is worth $50...you got a screaming deal)

Yeah I noticed that also..I took this before I fixed the chain...the rd was also bent and hit a spoke or 2 and bent them..so the lbs is fixing that...
Yeah...that brooks needs some work..the leather needs to be conditioned...it has been sitting in a damp storage area....but if I really love it..it might end up on my regular roadie..

But we'll see...might make a nice SS???

Herb, that era carbon tubes with aluminum lugs had some issue with corrosion. The unfortunate result can be separation. I would check those connections very carefully. If used exclusively on a trainer, it probably won't result in catastrophe.

I agree with Mo, the saddle alone looks to be worth the cash. Good purchase.

Thanks Jim...
I also recall seeing something that these were also prone to rear dropout failures...
I think this guy will be a trainer only bike...much safer...I dont think I am ready for an SS anyway...
I hope I can get the brooks back into good shape...it needs some tlc...

yah but the stress of mounting it to a trainer might be too much stress for the old carbon seat stays......
I know when I mount my alum Felt to the trainer, it flexes a good amount.

pulled the trigger on the Edge 305 bundle last night, it will be here on Monday.

www.geomangear.com (Geo.Man on BikeForums).

Superb service so far, he called me at 9AM (I ordered at 2AM) to answer my shipping question, and I got overnight shipping for about 15 bucks. Total price was ~$280
