^^^ Having a Garmin really adds a fun dimension to riding. If you're a data nut, it's great to be able to analyze your cadence/heart rate/speed as plotted against the geography of your route. Also being able to 'see' where you've ridden is pretty cool. I wore it to monitor my heart rate while mowing the lawn one time. Yeah, I know, I'm a nut.

My last purchase was a pair of Pearl Izumi shorts.

However, my birthday is coming up, and the LOML and I had a short discussion about what I may want.

Seizing the moment and throwing all caution to the wind (she still chides me about the Litespeed acquisition) I mention that it would be really nice to have a new MTB frame (I was a MTBer far longer than I've been a roadie). I've been eyeing a couple titanium possibilities to replace my older Cannondale.

She responded with, "A new frame? Wouldn't it be cheaper just to buy an entire bike outright?"

Good thing I had my back to her, so that she didn't see my eyeballs nearly pop out of my head from the surprise!!! The door is open, and the game is afoot... :rolleyes:

Got the knee warmers on clearance. Now I don't have to wear sweats on cold days.

Kurt Kinetic Road Machine trainer from REI using 20% off coupon and mostly paid by my member rebate check. Of course, it's back-ordered, so I might not get it for a while.

Bought a bunch of equipment today for my impending bike purchase. A Cat Eye V3 a set of Ultegra pedals a Co2 inflater, bottle cages, tubes, mini tool, and rim tools. I already have this stuff on my current ride but I want to have a kit for both bikes. Yes it's a lot of stuff but were I ride in the boonies I don't want to be without.

3T Team Ergosum bars and 3T Team Arx 110 Stem

Next week or so: 3T Team Doric Seatpost then I should be done. Oh, wait, still looking for a Bontrager Race Lite Front Wheel in the previous style (blue / steel color from 06-07) to match the powertap rear wheel.
