One of these.. the matching bar tape is pretty sweet, as well.

You're probably right, actually. I took them on a ~45 mile ride yesterday and felt I had a harder time holding my line than normal -- I figured it was because they were 23mm, but I didn't even think about the break in process. Today I went on a ~60 mile ride and I didn't have any problems. It makes sense that it's the tire break-in as opposed to the 2mm difference, I'd have to be crazy in tune with the bike to feel that.

My latest cycling purchase was at home depot. 1/8inch steel rod. don't mind the dirty frame, it's a tool not a jewel.

Base layer from Kucharik.

Yakima King Joe 2

Works great so far. The only downside is having to take it off between uses (I park outside)

A Thomsen seatpost for my MTB, as the Synchros was clicking so bad, and no amount of fiddling/lube could shut it up. If this Thomsen clicks, I am going to be pissed. So far, so good.

I have some take-off CXP-22S wheels from an 2010 Allez Comp coming for my bike. Along with a dura-ace 12-27 cassette, some Continental Grand Prix 4000S's, and some Continental tubes. They will be the road wheels for now and my stock rear will be kept for use with the trainer. Assuming the rims weight about the same as my current stock Alex S500's, the whole setup should be around 450grams lighter.

Also a bit annoyed that my TACX Juno bottle cages arrived and tipped the scale at 49 grams, nowhere near the 39 grams they were marked as.

My latest purchase. I made the "leap"from SRAM Rival standard to Force Compact crankset and front derailleur.

Also replaced my stem with a "wet white" Ritchey WCS stem. The red Hudz and red Prologo saddle cover are recent too.

Not a bad idea. How has it been working for you, no dislocation of the FD while putting tension on it?

i've only had it there for a day but i've been putting it through its paces on the trainer while watching it. Occasionally I see the chain bump it on a down shift which I guess means it saved it from falling off. The derailleur was a little harder to set up right but nothing crazy, took 5 minutes instead the usual 3. I've probably shifted it over 100 times since I installed it and it's still shifting perfect.
