A bag of twenty five E clips. I only needed two, but twenty five is the minimum order. My Gitane is back on the road and my ELAC Miracord is spinning vinyl again.

French thread pedals



If you buy stronglight cranks you'll probably need to buy a set sometime down the road.

OK, they didn't come in the post today. I put a down payment on them last week and picked them up today. Two 1972 Raleighs a Gents Superb and a Ladies Sports in remarkable condition just a bit dirty from sitting for 15 years in a loft. They have matching license stickers on the rear mudguards.

Went to REI to return some riding shorts. Also $20 coupon for May if you spend $100. So a gopro tripod mount, handlebar mount, a pair of Conti Ultra Sports 700 x 28, and a rack bag with small fold down panniers. The bag deal was exceptional as it is last years color, but what I wanted, charcoal.

Tubus rack for the GF's Surly LHT, Craftsman toolset for the ex-wife so I can reclaim my roll-away full of tools, and an immersion blender. Got to love Amazon sometimes.

Always yesterdays delivery!

A small package of Cateye Strada Double Wireless mounting parts. Its the part that breaks frequently that holds the computer on the mount. Since I have two, one broken, I bought 3. The broken one was modified by adding a tapered part of a Cinelli bar tape under the broken part as a spring (the part did not fall off yet). This is the part that "snaps" when installing and removing the head from the mount. It is a live plastic hinge that may be too thick or too short or both. I guess they have a well known failure history. The one that broke is nearly 4 years old and not used much. If you have never had one, you don't know what I am talking about!

It is really sad when a $90 product fails due to a simple design flaw. I am clad I don't have that much invested between the two of them! One was a gift and the other purchased on CL for $30. I like the cadence part. Fortunatly, the wirless function does not go haywire near my PC like so many others do.

stunned by the finish quality in fact.
i've had another Tange Levin, with the more 'rounded' cups. it was just ok.
this one is much superior in many ways.
exact copy of Super Record, i guess?
will be on the Parkpre build. the build has become a real jackass. in good ways, i guess.
