I got it for this bike:

I am going to upgrade the stem, bar and shifters (still the old stem on the photo). I bought the black Mutant, but am not completely sure, it was the right choice. The stem is as close to a tomahawk as something can be and could serve me as well as a weapon. Definitely not the lightest of stems, but otherwise it does have the look.

I still have no idea about the handlebar. I have checked several bars and while I was initially set to get a similar ergo bar I am now confident that a traditional drop would fit me better. I am now looking for a 26mm bar with traditional (or may be shallow) drop and short reach. Black color would be a plus, but not a necessity. I am definitely after a durable and quality bar and the budget is not my primary concern.

I am not in a hurry with the build. Want to have it ready by spring.

The new Rotor 3D+ BB30 Crankset. This is one of the first pairs to be introduced in the U.S. There were only 6 shipped. I got a pair and I believe the rest went to Garmin/Cervelo. Thanks to the great guys over at Rotor. I got a few sets of the Q-rings as well.

The final piece of my Bianchi Valle commuter drop bar conversion -- Shimano Tiagra 9sp brifters. I've decided to stick with Shimano (for now) and run it on both my road and commuter bikes. My other plan was to switch the roadie to Sram Red/Force and put its DA 7800 shifters on the Valle. But, I decided that such a big expense will wait until I decide to build up an "ultimate commuter" for myself (Ti frame, disc brakes, generator lighting, drops, fenders n' rack, etc), so I'll put as much mileage into the dropped Valle as I can.

Before:

I'll post an "after" later, probably within a few days.

Set of Joe Young wheels. DT Swiss 240S hubs, DD RR 415 Rims with DT Super comp spokes and topped off with Conti Grand prix 4000 Tires. These will replace the stock Bontrager Race lite wheels that came on the Madone.

A pair of gloves black on super-sale, don't ask the brand:o
A wind breaker $20 --black by bellweather which seems to attract heat :notamused:
Some PRO black handlebar tape $10 -- sorely needed.

Technically not my most recent purchase, but most recently delivered.

My cruddy photos in the dull light this morning really don't do these justice.

Psimet build, White Ind. hubs, Kinlin rims, Sapim spokes.

Picked this up on eBay from a seller in England:

It's the exact opposite color combination of the one I had in the early 80's.
