Huckleberry is sort of a less tart blueberry. I got tired of my bottle by the time I finished it since it was the only flavor I had at the time, but I'd get it again if I were using it in a rotation.

ya.. that is how i felt about the bottle of raspberry i just finished. I got a bottle of tropical that i thought i liked when i had the sample but i do not like the batch i got. Hopefully my friend buys it off of me.

update: got my shorts today. they fit great and the padding is thicker like my Capo bibs so i'm psyched.

My wheels arrived today, just in time for the long weekend! ANND I have tomorrow off from work! (Thank you Greece for making the dollar strong, however temporary.)
Our worthless mail carrier was too lazy to walk across the empty parking lot from our mailbox to our front door to let me sign for them, but I'll hopefully be able to sign for them at the post office tonight.
Goodygoodygoody! It's gonna be a great weekend and summer!

P.S. Montana Huckleberry has been my favorite flavor so far. I even got a couple of the large bottles with the smaller refillable one. The only downside is it tastes a little funny if you use it to sweeten your coffee on cafe breaks.

Not a roadbike but it's definatly cycling related. Doing some MTB events this year including some 8hrs so splurged on a new tool.

I will. I have a cheap black 1" threadless headset sitting on my work bench and a 1" to 1 1/8" steerer tube shim. All i think i will need is a shim for the handlebars because i ordered the stem with a 31.6 or so bar diameter for when i can afford my carbon bars later on.

Sigma BC 2209 MHR computer.
http://www.sigmasport.com/us/produkt...punkt=features

With the new roadbike, the old Flight Deck computer and IronMan HRM just aren't going to cut it anymore. I wanted an all in one computer, but didn't want to buy a Garmin 705 as I already have an Etrex with all the bike mount goodies. I was about ready to jump on the Cateye V3 when the salesman showed me this one. It was $50 cheaper than the Cateye and appears to have more functions as well as a bigger display and PC connectabiltiy (as soon as the software gets released). So I used my REI 20% discount coupon. This new Sigma looks promising. Wireless cadence, HR, Speed, Altitude, and Temperature.

My next most recent purchase is related, the dashboard genie
http://www.bdopcycling.com/Dashboard%20Genie.asp
I was skeptical, but this is a quality constructed product that looks sharp and allows me to mount my devices right were I want them.

Then of coarse there's the new frame. It's not the MOST recent purchase, but it's within the last month

I wanted to make use of the BB30 and I already had all the Ultegra groupo. No BB30 from Shimano. Frame, crank, seatpost, saddle, fd, and stem are the only new parts on this bike. So far I've had no problems with the mixed components other than the fact that they are mixed.

Psimet powertap wheel!
Kinlin XR300 rim, powertab elite hub. Not sure about the spokes. Wheel was built by Psimet over the winter and was formerly ridden by the now banned timmyquest (tspek, kepst, etc.). Helped him upgrade to a lighter wheel and helped me get into the power game, so it's a win win :)
