Like the jersey! I have the same jersey but the short sleeve version.

It's actually the jacket version. I bought it mostly for casual cycling wear and not so much for training since it doesn't get cold enough to warrant a jacket for a full ride here. I almost got the Borimo, but I'm glad I held off and got the Ganna since it has a much more retro and casual look.

Picked up a Shimano CN-7900 chain

Just took my bike for a little spin to test it out. was all working fine... but something snapped, and now it looks like I have a case of the blown 105 front brifter. Balls. Let's see if I'll be able to warranty it.

Castelli Free Aero bibs and Podio Jersey. They are super light and comfy... a little tight which just mean I need to lose more weight.

Also some Craft baselayers

Get out! :D

I bought my wife a Townie 21D. The 9sp balloon-tired model was cool with its drum brakes, but I couldn't guarantee that it'd have enough low end for her. I tell ya, though their "Flat Foot Technology" is exactly what she wanted.

I found out that some guy who had left only a little before I arrived got them. Actually, he had a heap of jerseys, bibs, jackets... and they told him he could throw it all in a duffel bag and he could have it all for $50. :eek:

$6 WANDA 700x25c tyres for my commuter (which had awful studded tyres lol) brand new, for real (although they're very low quality obviously, but miles better than what it had since they're slicks)
$1 pair of brand new "power grip" grips for the same bike
$3 black steel bottle cage (new as well)

sometimes cycling in a third world country ain't so bad. I was priced $18 for a brand new pair of 700c rims as well.

Of course, you go to a real cycling shop and everything costs 10x more (not exaggerating) and isn't 10x better, but at the moment I'm on a roadie hiatus while I save for a decent bike. I still ride daily though, in my commute. :)

A used Fit Bike (position simulator). A local bike shop had it listed on eBay so I saved shipping charges by picking it up. I've wanted one for a long time.

Replaced the Bontrager Maxi Pad Gel Tape with Fizik. I had Fizik in the past and loved it, so it was time to go back.

Picked up a couple of things

CaptJohn 04-07-11 08:36 PM
