Pro bike air pump.


Zefal - nice rubber to frame air pump holders.


The 920 will get a black pump. This one will be fitted onto my Peloton with Zefal holders.


Maybe 2 Zefal straps

I like mounting mine using their holder on the bottle bosses. Kind of hides it on my frame.

The odd threaded spacer on my Nishiki Cresta GT proved to be a bear to remove with out the correct tool, I went finally went to my LBS, and I am sure it would be just as fun to adjust. So once it came off I decided it would not return

A 6700 BB.

I have traded it and the crank set plus labor to install it with a 5800 group onto a Serotta Colorado.

In exchange I get a triple 6500 STI group with Open Pro wheels.

Since I got a new headset for the Nishiki Cresta GT I am going to rebuild I thought why not a bb too? it will cut down on the install time and future maintenance, or so I tell myself.. And some white braided brake cable and housing to replace the tired dirty white brake housing it came with.

I'm converting our tandem from 3x7 to 3x11. This weekend, the right shifter and chain arrived. Soon the rear derailleur will arrive. The tracking information for the cassette shows that it's stuck somewhere, so I filed a complaint with the post office. I won't be changing the left shifter or the front derailleur. I might be changing the big chainring to something bigger, if I can make it work.

After trying 10 different ways to install/adjust/unmangle an abused the Tange Falcon on my Circuit, I got this. The rim tape will replace that never before seen by me double layer of plastic on the Circuit's Arrayas and the 5s Sunrace will one day go on the PX-10.

I've come to see why tandemers want lower lows and higher highs. I often row through the gears from top to bottom and back. If the 54x11 works, I'll have a 127-inch gear. (The bike has 26" MTB tires.)
