My new rain jacket ...

My titanium frame, complete with bottle cages ...

Just to name a couple.

Aren't you forgetting the Brooks on the frame?

Toupe 143. I had a Forte SLX but I think it was just breaking down, and I was starting to get numbing in the drops when I didn't use to.

The Brooks isn't new ... it's one I bought a year or more ago. I have only ridden it a few times and I'm not sure if I'm going to try to break it in, or use one of Rowan's that is already partially broken in.

and Mavic SL Premium Superlights for it.

Also should be getting new Giro indicator Helmet, Nashbar Earth Jersey, Fox Sleeveless Jersey, another pair of Canari Gel shorts, and a couple of odds and ends.

i made the same change. while i thought the slx was comfortable, the toupe team 143 was a whole other world of comfort.

I am sure that chair is comfortable, but is this something you keep around just so you can do mushrooms every now and then?

Side note: Nice jersey ;)

I ordered a few things just to increase the wardrobe and decrease the laundry cycle. New Helmet (Giro Indicator), Sleeveless Fox Jersey (Medium), Short Sleeve Nashbar Earth Jersey (Medium), Canari Gel Cycling Shorts (Medium).

Also picked up the Shimano SPD Pedals from Wordbiker. Thanks again!

Hopefully, I can catch some really good, crazy stuff this coming weekend.. even bad is good on video, right? :D

Cactuskid 04-27-10 08:31 PM

I ordered this for my new Cervelo anyone else got one? how do you like it??

CyciumX 04-27-10 08:34 PM

Thats next on the list. I know you can step up to more input options down the line as money comes in, but I think I might hold out until I can get a proper power management system or some insane 150 dollar deal...heh
