The very least I could do!

I really appreciate all of your hard work.

I love that Colnago and you helped straighten the kinks out DD.

Promise I'll post some pics when I throw the new tires on.

^Cool.

Today I received some materials for my Miyata Triplecross commuter -- a long cage Shimano 105 RD in really nice shape and a Tange Levin headset. Unfortunately I think the headset I need is JIS despite the relatively recent manufacture. Doh! Really need to buy some calipers.

Selle San Marco Regal Ti in vvgc, way better than described, superscreaming deal on it (40 bones), going on my Trek until it goes on my Competition

Brake mount thingy for mounting rear brake to a vertically drilled bridge. Which I don't have any of, but my thinking is that it would work well for mounting a fender.

Yesterday, a Topeak Road Master Blaster frame pump.
Today, a Zefal HP Mountain 3 frame pump.

Then I went to Raleigh and picked up a nice wheelset/tires/tubes/10-sp cassette from CL.

Feeling a need to try out Ergopower (all DT to this point, heck my first indexed DT bike was this summer!), and bored with all of my project stuff being in storage 5000km away, so:


Now for a frame worthy of the components on a budget (had to shell out duty to the postman on these!), so I can give this stuff a spin...

Oh, and much appreciation to eschlwc with respect to a trade that got me out of my predicament with one lone orphan toe clip for my 600 Tricolor pedals:

A child's OLMO! "Puchfinnland" just sent this out on 8/27 and told me it would take a month! I have no clue how it got to WA state from Finland in 5 days but I'm not crying. The bad news is I'm still one step from closing the deal on some 22" wheels coming from Italy. Lets hope they ship with the same swiftness More pics and a new thread coming soon...

Depends.

Northern or southern Italy?

Poste Italiane or DHL?

Best case - northern + DHL = 1 week

Worst case - southern + PI = 4-6 weeks
