My mudflaps fell off my commuter, so I ordered replacements from PlanetBike.com .. gotta love their free shipping for small parts. The mudflaps got here and had the same flimsy plastic attachers that failed me last time. I didn't want to lose another set so I went to the local hardware store and got some copper rivets to match the copper accessories theme of the rest of the bike. I am quite happy with the way it turned out, taking in to account my limited mechanical skills.
I know it is a crappy job with the reflector tape. I will get some more and re-do that.

I just blew $50 on some Perpetuem and gels. Looking for some shoe rain covers but the shop only had some crappy overpriced ones... I've been really good about not spending cash on my bike lately - I'm both proud and ashamed of myself.

Those KCNC brakes rock. Just make sure you keep the roller pin lubed with some dry lube, or they start to get sticky. Other than that, they are great brakes, stop well, and weigh very little.

Picked this up today. :D

Wore this for the first time this evening; Louis Garneau Olympus helmet - way better ventilated than my black Bell department store helmet. The new one shipped without the visor, but the company put one in the mail for me this afternoon... sure, it's not a Volt or an Ionos, but it will do for my 12 - 30 milers.

Well...Custom Shop Jawbones to replace the ones that were lifted from my car...

Matte White/Dark Grey w/Fire Vented and VR28 Blue Iridium Vented

http://www.forzavelo.com/wht_gry.jpg

And then these because well, they are BadA$$. Limited edition Echelon Jawbones...they include Ruby Iridium VR50 Transition Lenses...it's the lense exclusivity that made me do it...the carbon look and jaws are both matte finish in real life, no idea why they appear to have a sheen in the image from oakley

Finally went clipless after rocking the platforms for 3k miles. Got 'em both at a great price (nearly 60% off).

And a pair of the Performance brand Ultra II bibs. Holy crap, why did I not buy these things earlier? They're on sale for $60 right now, so I may grab another pair.

Nothing is going to make me fast, the goal is simply less pathetic.

The key is to look fast.

Amazing what a little crazy glue gel in the right place would do. It is fixed, at least for now!

I'll say one thing about this Ionos helmet: it is huge compared to the same size L in the Atmos model. It is also heavier by 50+ grm in addition to the weight of the ContourHD that is attached to the helmet now. It looks at least one entire size bigger. It fits my head and the strapping mechanism works great to make it fit and feel well once adjusted. However, the shell is huge. That I don't like one bit!! Oh the joys of living in the black hole of LBS that don't carry a freaking thing you use, want to try, or like!!
