This is actually in the dining room at my sister's house

Relatives that understand the struggle are terrific.

Got good deal on the 1st gen C-Record pedals with Victory(?) straps. Huge road rash on the dust cap but works well and clean as it can be. Going on De Rosa SLX instead vtg Look pedals now.

A NOS Garmin Fenix 3HR sport watch with sapphire crystal. There's a lot of menus and settings to work through, but recording ride info is pretty simple. I just recorded data on my trip to town and the store so we'll see how easy it is to get data out of it. Supposedly you can upload gpx files (like from ridewithgps) and navigate using them. I'll find out. I decided on this one rather than the newer Fenix 5 for a couple of reasons:

1. new models are always more expensive, and the prices of previous models usually comes down when the latest and greatest are available - for electronics, anyway.

2. Battery life - 48 hours for the Fenix 3 vs 8 hours for the Fenix 5 - HUGE difference. Don't have any real-world data to back that up yet, but I'll find out soon enough.

UPS dropped of this YUGE box.... I was hoping it was the delicious hot chocolate I ordered from amazon and it sort of was.



Instead of containing 2 three box packs of 12 envelopes, this huge box cantained only a single pack wif 12 envelopes. What is this world coming when the worlds largest online shipping company can't correctly ship a girls cocoa?

The mailbox produced well this morning!

SKF bottom bracket remover. Fastest overseas shipping I’ve ever seen. Now I can get that cartridge bb off of the Pro Miyata frame that’s too tall to keep. Anyone interested in either?

SR post, and crankset pretty much complete the Campy group I’ve been piecing together for the Gary Hale frame.

The crankset was one of the few affordable options on eBay recently. Probably because the arms are of a different finish (good enough for now). But it came with a 53t big ring. It was priced low enough that I was able to buy a 52t ring as well. Anyone need a 53t ring? The seller of the crankset did not picture or mention dust caps in the listing so I bought a set of those separately as well. The happy surprise this morning was finding dust caps with the crankset, surprise crank bolts too! Anyone need BREV caps or Patent bolts?
