Got the frame of this bike( http://www.bikepedia.com/Images/Defa...-Allez-Pro.jpg ), and although its been a real hassle to transfer all the parts off my 2005 trek pilot 2.1 and find that some of them are in need of replacement (derailleur) or plain old don't fit (brakes), it has been worth it. I've learned more about bikes, and I've dropped over a pound in weight, and gained quite a bit of stiffness. I cannot wait until everything is all dialed in.

Had to buy a new one of these after my dog chewed up my last one. Must be jealous of time spent riding instead of paying attention to her.

The newly opened Performance in my area is giving out money coupons left and right. Last weekend I turned in my blown inner tubes in exchange for almost $60 cash (had to make multiple trips because of the "limits 3" rule). I ended up buying a pair of mtb shoes.
They are repeating the promotion once again this coming weekend. I wil probably line up in front of the store to get the $20 coupon and buy some new tubes.

Why not just leave it screwed onto the valve?

KeS

If you left it on the valve you would need to remove it every time you pumped up the tire. Of course you could have a pump designed for both types but it is still more of a hassle than it is worth.

Now that's a bargain!

Thank you good samaritan for keeping my confidentiality. I think I reposted it correctly now. Although I don't know how to post pictures of my own personal photos, eg. (bikes, and so forth).

Oh, your picture worked. ;)

You're welcome.

The easiest way to post your own photo's is to upload them to www.photobucket.com and then post the img link here.

Just ordered my first carbon bike! A Franco Balcom road bike. Got in on a sweet frameset special. It comes with black and white paint graphics.

They offer custom paint as an option, thinking about going black with yellow accents. That would basically bring the price back up to the original price of frame.

zitter 07-14-11 06:07 PM

That is an excellent first carbon bike. I have a teammate who used to have one and it was gorgeous. It got cracked in half during a crash though =/

SidLRides 07-14-11 06:15 PM

Ouch, how'd that happen? What did your teammate think about the bike? My buddy put me on to Franco. He's been riding one for almost a year and loves it, so convinced me to pull the trigger.

zitter 07-14-11 08:21 PM

He was doing a road race and some guy in front of him misjudged the corner and swiped his wheel, my teammate was okay but it basically cracked his top tube and downtube in half. He talked to Franco and they offered him a really good crash replacement option but he wound up picking up a different frame since his budget was small. While he had it, he absolutely loved it. It's hanging on his wall now

Its been a good month for me. My wife bought me a new mountain bike for my birthday.
2011 Scott Scale 29 Elite. Today I went to look at new shoes and came home with a new set of Black and White Sworks shoes and an new Sele Italia Saddle. I hope I like it, it sure was expensive. I have been hating my Arione lately.

I'm so jealous! I recently passed on a Six 13 on CL for $300. Not the same thing, but I'm still kicking myself.

Got an XS skinsuit off Voler for $17.

SCORE made me faster
 
$30 Park Home Repair Stand PCS-1. SCORE!!!

It is an olive color which must mean it is a few years old. Clamp works great. After I used it today to adjust the front derailleur, it made me faster! I beat my world record to the top of Emigration Canyon by 4 minutes.
