Picked up some new Louis Garneau ErGo Air Revo Shoes from Performance on Clearance. Not the lightest shoes in the world at 720 gr/pair but a clear upgrade in quality from my lake cx165.

Got a set of these last week off the bay. They ride nice.

Just received a set of wheels for daily use. I love my carbon wheels but I have decided that it would be nice to have brakes when it's raining. :D

Lots of new wheels on this page. All very nice. Those Dura-Ace wheels are super nice if you have ever actually ridden them. I am starting to really like the hubs that Shimano putting out.

Specialized Romin saddle. I've had Fizik and have been riding a Brooks Swift for the past few hundred miles, and I wanted to try something different. We'll see how it goes.

Opposing views for sure.
I regret getting rid of my Elites, they were a great wheelset for the money and they withstood all the abuse I could throw at them.
In fact I regret it so much I'm thinking about getting that same deal from Performance LowCel got.

Not a big Mavic fan? I always thought they were on the overrated over marketed freight train.

I swapped 2 stock Fizik saddles for the Romin, this after test riding an SMP Evolution for a few hundred miles.
I don't think you can go wrong with a Specialized saddle.

Very.
Crap for durability, heavy, over priced, and to top it off proprietary parts. I had nothing but issues with them.

I still have mine for backup \ trainer purposes until I build up a set of wheels. The front has this incessant creaking I can't stand that goes away if I lube the fork dropouts. The rear has hub issues that even a new freehub body wouldn't fix.

A new crank for my Madone and a TT bike. Got the RIdley Cheetah from one of our forum advertisers. They are going to put a T2+ S-bar on it instead of the pictured T1+ J-bar. Going to take a few weeks before they deliver it.

Now, I have to figure out how to remove my old crank and install the new one. Haven't a clue, and bike technology has changed a lot since I last wrenched my own bikes.

uvex fp3 to replace my very old previous helmet.

nateintokyo, I'll bet those boxes were pretty expensive. They included free components inside, right? ;)

I haven't had one yet (a few years back I took an Avatar Gel for a short spin and nearly bought a Milano), but after doing decently well with an Aliante, an Arione, and that Swift, I kinda wanted to go a completely different direction. After a quick 20-mile charity ride Sunday, I was pretty satisfied. The Swift had been getting on my nerves, literally and figuratively, after three hours' riding; but the B17 on another bike will stay with me 'till I die. ;)

Most expensive boxes I've ever bought---and the first time I've ever bought a whole group instead of piecing things together :) :)

Got this last week.. got 2 rides in wearing it. i was afraid it would warm up too fast and i'd have to look at it in the closet all summer. very comfy.. wish the arms were a bit tighter and the pockets a bit bigger but still a nice jersey.
