Haha! Thanks. Actually that's Fizik Microtex white (NOT the soft touch). Wipes clean really easily, probably the easiest to keep clean of all the white bar tapes. Also, in addition to Simple Green, Spray 'n Wash works well too. Really.

I walked into REI knowing I had a dividend and that I needed some bike lubricants.

I walked out 30 minutes later with the lubricants and a Garmin 500 after the cashier asked if I wanted to use my dividend and 20% discount coupon.

Most recent purchase was a pro bike fit which ended up necessitating a new saddle. All I could afford was a Bontrager InForm but it's made a huge difference.

Did the cashier give you 20% off the Garmin? If so, very lucky. I was mislead that the 20% coupon was for GPS also until I got to the checkout :(

I submitted my order ten minutes ago for a BMC SLX 01 Racemaster frameset -- one of the last of '09's in my size, and in nasty-mean black n' yellow. :D Also ordered the cabling and some other bits to go with it, and I've already got everything else sitting around waiting to build it up.

I've been sitting on this fence for about five months now. 'Bout time I pulled the trigger.

This is the stuff I bought last fall:

'06 Trek 2200 WSD. Turns out it included the blonde so I think I got a good deal.

I think he was talking about the blond. Do they come with redheads too? (sorry, personal preference ;))

I tried here at the local REI, and was shown the coupon's fine print. No good on any GPS related devices. The whole deal including taxes, would've been under $300. Can't blame a fellow for trying though....

Ended up using my 20% off on the Tifosi glasses.

Pretty.

^Hahaha--Midwesterners are masters of understatement.

When you ask them, "How are you doing?" they usually respond with:
~"Not too terribly."
~"I've been worse." or
~"Not dying of colon cancer yet, thanks."
