'09 Look 566. Had to clean the dust off in the LBS. It looks much better now :-)

Shimano 105 compact crank and Ultegra BB (out of 105 BB at performance - big sale this weekend). I always wanted a full group. Bike came with a FSA Vero compact. Cromoly spindle weighed a ton.

My Crank Bros. Blue Candy 3 pedals just came in from my LBS. Now if Nashbar would HTFU and ship my new shoes so I can mount the candies... I guess that's my karma for going outside of my LBS:notamused:

Still waiting for this one to arrive on the doorstep. Just because the Brooks nearly made sure there wouldn't be a second child.

Tubes. Replaced the front tube on Saturday due to a broken stem (using my last one) only to have the back tube blow out on my ride. *sigh*

Just got this in today and wow night and day difference compared to my cheap bontrager helmet. Yes I know it has world champion stripes. Yes I know I will never be a world champion I know this. But it matches my bike (Matte Black blue and white) and my LBS jersey (Red, White, and Green) so it works for me.

My first non overstuffed saddle.

First ride was 65 miles. I could not really find a comfortable position. Tilted it forward a small amount around mile 47 which made it much better. Have about 125 miles on it and aside from a couple of sort spots I have no problems with numbness or pain. I think the forward tilt is too much as now feel increased pressure on my hands.

Having a pro-fit within a week.

Prescription Oakleys. Transition lenses. Nice.

have you done any long rides in those bibs yet? i see them pop up on bonktown and im very tempted to try them out.

zitter 07-01-11 12:22 PM

my team bibs are exactly the same except with silicon leg grippers instead of compression bands and i've done 90 mile rides in them perfectly fine

i just got these yesterday so i haven't had a chance to get a good ride in on them

update on them, darker matte parts are actually ribbed and are amazing, they fit a little smaller and the material is a little thicker, but i love them so far, the compression bands are awesome

Nice, I'm looking to get one myself. Haven't decided yet if I want to buy a complete bike and upgrade as I go or get a frame and build it out.

As for recent purchases, well... I had to replace my Edge 500 after it took an unintended fall on my garage floor (LCD shattered) :( I will handle the new one as if it were an egg.
