An NOS SR Apex 118 BCD 40T ring.



I'm glad I found it as I want to use one of those cranksets on my new Gazelle. You can probably see why. 52/40 isn't exactly compact by modern standards, but it beats the 44 inner I had on it before.

Two NOS CLB Professionnel brake levers. They are not a true pair, as the one on the right is a two-cable tandem lever, with a slightly different body.



One cable exits at the top, the other at the back, aero style:





This enables me to mount an extra caliper on the tandem, which seems useful and should lead to less yelling at other people: "COMING THROUGH!"

Apparently the various couriers and mail services got together and decided that today was to be the day they would all deliver everything I have bought online during the past weeks.

This package came from Poland, courtesy of German leather products retailer Gusti Leder. They offer nice-looking leather bar tape a lot cheaper than the usual suspects. I wanted some in brown for the Gazelle mentioned above, so I thought I'd give them a try. Not being able to make up my mind I ordered two sets: one 'Adri V.' and one 'Fausto C.'

First impressions are favorable. The cork-and-wood plugs are a bit too 'authentic' for my taste, but the leather looks good and feels nice. Nice colors, too, if a little less smoothly finished than Brooks.

Sweat Of The Gods, by Benjo Maso. If his other book, We Were All Gods, about the 1948 Tour de France, is anything to go by, this should be an interesting read.



And the final package of the day (I think) contained some small but useful items: universal stainless fender clamps. Nice if you want to be able to move your fenders to another bike without having to re-drill them.

Pair of Neutron wheels. A few years ago I street picked a pair at the LBS which might have been too worn for some hardcore rider, but for beating the front (rear had a broken spoke) on short errands around town was perfect. I was impressed by how light and smooth it is, while having a "normal/classic" wheel look, not the grouped spoke layout. Finally found these in great shape with non matching QRs for a price lower than what those alone would cost (or to fix the 1 missing spoke on the other set). Happy, as these were the missing (alternative) pieces for my ALAN's upgrade from 9sp Mirage to 10sp Centaur. The other alternative would have been buying tubulars for my Gipiemme Tecnos, but those wouldn't be cheaper either.

Nice. I'll have to keep my eyes open for that. I have come wrenches for my cone nuts, but there are enough times that nothing squeezes into the available space to make such a wrench handy.

Thank you very much, darkmoon! As far as I knew it had only been partly translated into English. I never even suspected there was a Japanese translation. Glad you enjoyed it!

Oh, boy - the Colnago Mexico is going to have a new, longer bar/stem combo, complete with a spare pair of pantographed brake levers, before the New Year after all. These arrived today:



Other bike-related purchases, ordered only one day later than these, have still not arrived from Oregon. These brake hoods came all the way from Italy. Wtf.

I'd anticipated shipping delays, but the other way around. Now it's time to pull my thumb out, and finish polishing the bar/stem so I can put this together and plug it in.

Well, I got a late Christmas package in from my daughter and it included some light blue alloy bottle cage bolts. Exactly what I needed for the Merckx. Score!

Not to mention some Jaffe Cakes, yum!

Much more likely is the place I ordered my stuff from doesn't actually have the item on-hand, is having it drop-shipped from someplace else, and they don't have the integrity to admit it.

Not everything is politics - it is simply people being people.
