yeah...but Sante' isn't too early. And it makes sense about the koozies, as the parts came from BREWSMITH.

Well I got this RockShox XC28 in the mail to replace the Judy XC on my Mongoose, but I can't get the crown race off of the old Judy...

I guess I'll bring it to the local hipster bike shop this weekend and get it removed, and while I'm at it I'll finally get the chain and cables replaced on my Raleigh.

Got a set of very nice Superbe brake levers. The gum hoods are still nice and chewy.

My size, almost new condition, and a good price. I couldn't resist. I used to have a pair of these same shoes as a teenager and I wore 'em out. Plus, they'll match my Look.

A haul (literally) of parts, for $120. In with a bunch of junk are several Cinelli and GB stems, decent NOS skin wall tires, nice rando bars, a couple nice RD's, nice skewers, and boxes of brake and gear inner cables. Small bits galore. My stash of stuff will be replenished when I break all of this down and separate the wheat from the chaff.
