The only thing I see is a smiley face (in a plateful of cottage cheese). Am I missing something?

Winter has gotten to me as well. I am reduced to buying color coordinated bottle cages, the same as you. I'm so ashamed.

What kind of pedals are those? I haven't seen white pedals since I got rid of my old Look PP247 pedals a few years back.

Hey, a fresh coat of paint! Wouldn't have seen it if you hadn't pointed it out.
