Stocked up on bar tape. Cheap Chinese but entire pile was less than $8. It seems just like the $20 stuff but time will tell.

I received some bib shorts, some gloves, a Park Tool magnetic bowl, and a cue sheet clip.

The bib shorts are a bit tight, but I'll keep them. The gloves are uselessly small, so I gave them to my wife. I ordered medium by accident, and I wear XL.

Pair of NOS Universal CX levers with hoods. Ebay purchase from overseas, arrived rather quickly. Already installed on the Equippe project. Bar wrap tomorrow (yellow Benotto) and back to riding it.

A purchase made possible by a sale earlier. Just received this1991 Flite Ti saddle. Never had one and now I get to try it. Very lite and in great condition! Bought from a BF member who had 2 to sell.

it will now go on the pile with the carbon fork waiting for the GT Force frame to get a head tube ream for a better Tange HS.

Happy this his project is moving forward as I seem to be at a stand still.

A couple of Cuissi Elite bottle cages for the Pinarello and a Lemond, and a Lezyne Pro 1 air chuck for my floor pump. The chuck is nice, and has a well-integrated valve core tightener too - handles both presta and schrader valves.

Proprietary seatpost bolt for my latest build:





My seatpost has slipped a couple times due to the limitations of the stop-gap setup I've been using. This will fit the bill perfectly, and will complete the bike.

Too jealous to ask about that Miyata. Once I saw the canti's, envy kicked in.

I posted this in mid August! Took a week for that guy to answer, I thought he’d sold the bike already!
HUGE thanks to Chiefkurtz for facilitating this buy!

I just got my Park FR-4 Atom freewheel removal tool, $8 from Amazon Prime. Curious to verify if my '78 Peugeot has French threads on the freewheel. Life would be simpler if they turned out to be English. Just dreaming ...

I received a headlight shipped from Thailand, from that site with the weird name, banggood dot com. @dwmckee said it's a good light, with a shaped beam, so I thought I'd try it. It actually is pretty good. It has a cutoff at the top of the beam, and it's pretty bright. Run time at high intensity is two hours.
