PX-10 frame in my size onto which I plan to transfer parts from another much-too-small PX-10:



Sorry about the crappy pic and background. I'm sure everyone knows what a PX-10 frame looks like.

Parts are showing for my new Yeti SB5C frame.

An XT groupset showed today.

I had to sell some pretty nice vintage/recent goodies for this baby.

Including my Niner.

Another Brooks Cambium. Comparing the two, it turns out that the first one is a C17S, which I hadn't noticed.

Stronglight 49D chain set. I always keep an eye open for them.

With 50/40 chain rings. Just perfect.

Hello @nonfixie. I've been looking at 49d chainrings and see many with a second set of bolt holes such as in this photo from eBay. Any idea why the second set of holes? Thanks.

Good question. And I don't know the answer (yet). I've noticed them before, mostly on Peugeot-branded versions.

I always keep a few crank sets in my study - just in case someone asks a question like this - and two of them share the same phenomenon:



The extra holes are not machined, like the 'official' bolt holes, but their existence does suggest a function. Weight saving perhaps?

More like a couple weeks ago, but I picked up one of these jackets during a recent Nashbar sale. Not perfect, but excellent value. Quite warm, good wind blocking. Haven't tried it in the rain so I can't comment on that. A little roomy in the body, and I wouldn't have minded a small inner zip pocket, but otherwise no complaints.

Do you wear this alone in cold weather (referring to upper body only)? What temps would you be comforable wearing only this....20's, teens, 30's?

This would be perfect for my cold weather rides, but I'm guessing I would need something termal underneath even in the 40's, and for colder weather perhaps something over.

Is it "temperature rated" for certain ranges? I know you said quite warm but at what temps?

Would appreciate your comments. Thanks.

Working on getting the Gitane Olympic more Cino Heroica friendly.

38t 122bcd Stronglight chainring



Before on the left, after on the right. I already run this 52-38 combo on another Gitane and like it a lot.

I don't want to be a downer, but those shifters aren't very durable. I have some experience with them.

What came in the post for me in the last couple of days are related to this:
[IMG]P1030370 , on Flickr[/IMG]

Decided to go with the red, white and blue scheme. The post items were the ring in blue, the levers from a BF'r, Keo cleats for the shoes to go with the pedals. Found the wheels on CL last week allowing me to nearly complete the build. Just need to trip the cables
