This actually came in the post a few weeks ago but I just picked it up from Michaels on Friday. The matting is as close to Celeste as we could find. I took several pics but I guess if I want a really nice one I need to drag it outside one day.



I have wanted one of these for years and finally stumbled on this one and amazingly there were no dents, scratches, creases or staple holes in it!!

What DIDN'T come in the mail today... the DT spokes that were scheduled to arrive today. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Oh well... the Wheelsmith spoke prep that I ordered isn't supposed to arrive until tomorrow... so I couldn't start lacing anyway.

Never-used 650A rims and a 36h 7-speed rear hub from balindamood. Can't wait to service the hub and lace these up for my "fakenneur" build. (Anybody got a spare 36h front hub lying around?)

A Continental Supersonic tire to give me a matched set on a set of wheels I may never use (700 rear/650 front)

An Easton EC90 bar in red for a decidedly non-C&V bike. I may have to buy a stem, too.

An 8-sp Shimano cassette.

Sorry, I looked and came up short on the hub request. Hope another member can help you out !

Hey, 3speedslow, I sent you another PM. This build will be a mishmash of specs and brands, but I'm hopeful that I'll like the result.

Thanks! I'm going to use them on my Specialized. The gold is a great match for the pedals I'm using: I'm also waiting for a couple of gold bottle cages.

Too cheap/lazy to mount new tires vs. AR enough to insist on matching tires. And tape.

In the mail:
Two sets of DA DT cable stops w/cables, ferrules, in-line adjusters, bb cable guides.
A blue Transit seat bag.
A 650c Conti Supersonic tire

Okay, I can see the opossum and armadillo as sort of handlebar ornaments, but how do the ducklings fit on your bike?

I wasn't expecting to home this weekend but I did have a few parcels show up. A set of faux Pasela tires, some sort of Kendas, some for the Univega. I got this goofy bottle brush for cleaning the straw that came with my Starbucks Frappichino cup. and lastly a great pair of used wheels at an great price. 8spd RSX rear, 600 front with Mavic Reflex rims and Conti tires.
