Haha, yaaah! You know it man

Btw, do you know of any cycling threads that play the game of "You know you're into cycling when _________." and the replies fill in the blank? That would be fun.

A birthday present to myself. This should make things a lot easier than the hammer, vise and heaps of frustration I normally use.

I received a new 25.4 seatpost from England yesterday, as well as a new SA AW hub kit, for my old Raleigh Sport build. The day before, I received my order of DT Swiss spokes for the same build.

Correctomundo. As a newbie to the C&V world, I somehow ended up with 6 projects. My first experience with cotter removal was a PITA so I splurged on a new cotter press.

My first attempt was the hammer.

My second was the vise and socket.

Do the vice and socket or a press.

Golden Boy, did you ever find some toe clips?

Today's package contained a lovely handlebar. Golly, what should I call it? One side is engraved "SR Road Champion" and the other side "Sakae Custom Japan". (They are all engraved this way, aren't they?)

Yesterday's package contained a 22.0mm SR stem, some TA chainrings, and a pair of Nervar crank arms.

Life is good.

Yesterday I got a Dosun headlight and a Spanninga tail light, both new, from ebay. Today, I installed them. They work great with an ancient Miller sidewall generator (bottle dynamo) that I also got used on ebay.









The three items cost me only $109, combined.

Campy record with lambda clincher rear wheel for winter riding.








It's awesome that Campagnolo hubs write the freewheel threading on them.

These Challenge Almanzo tires came today to go on the campy clincher rear above and a Dura Ace front I had already. I was able to get them at a good price.



Can't wait to try 'em on my Dawes!

Good pick up.

I hope you like them, as I think they are just right on bumpy country roads and hard packed gravel.

I just saw a sale the other day and picked up another pair for myself.
