Almost a month after I paid for them, the replacement Mavic Reflex rims have arrived. Monday I'll drop them off with my LBS for the build. Check out the packaging - surprisingly, they made it through unscathed - but boy, did I get overcharged on shipping:



Very clean pair of rims, and the smooth, machined sidewalls are going to love my modern Campy brake pads:



This will be only my second tubular wheelset; interestingly, the other set also has blue-anodized rims:

Gotta love Mondays when the mail is good!

NOS Stronglight 45t chainring. Planning to try this out as part of a 1x6 drivetrain with a 14t-28t freewheel in back.

I had no idea these existed until I looked - slotted cleats for modern shoes. Perfect for the Campy Stradas on the Falcon.
Also got some bottle cages, and for my wifeís Moto restomod, long-reach Tektro and MKS Sylvan pedals.

Thank you - and I will return the favor and ensure Sacha welcomes Dali as an honorary member of the Tabby Troupe

Very sorry for your loss.

These came from the Amazon the other day, yes the cable caps are rather frivolous. The chainwheel bolts are going back that is a horrible shade of green.

Brooks saddle bag
Look what popped up on CL! Always wanted one but not for the price Brooks wants. It will go on the Motobecane that has the Brooks B17 saddle.
