Nice, that's about the same weight of my Vuka Sprint/Service Course SL combo. Which I finally rode today, and ironically are the stiffest bars/stem I've ever ridden.

I'm not sure about any discount codes, but the stuff on sale is part of their Winter Sale:

I know there's a sale, just trying to get it cheaper. HAHAHA.

No, not a Cervelo...that's a random guy on a bike.

But a camera. It's cycling related since I took a picture of a bike, right? :D:D:D

Finally found these babies at a decent price so I can get my HTFU on during Winter time:

$120 for both.

It's weird buying these LG stuff when I work indirectly for them :notamused: I feel like I should get these stuff for less (or for free)

Its been a vintage steel kind of week for me.

1973 Raleigh Competition out of 531
1983 Schwinn Super Sport Double butted Champion tube
1983 Austro Daimler / Puch SLE 531 main triangle
1983 Fuji Opus III

All Fixer uppers the Fuji will be a keeper not sure about the others, heard needs to be thinned so more then likely the Schwinn and Raleigh will be flipped after a clean up and The AD I need to see how it comes out, Paint is bad, Its not a Vent Noir or Ultima so not on my vintage grail list.

For my commuter / kid hauler / errand runner:

$15 at Amazon which about the same as the cheapo Chinese Bell branded computers at Wal-Mart / Target / Amazon etc. I have had both, and while the Bells work fine, Cateye is just a bit sturdier (thicker wires etc).

Used 2011 Reynolds Sixty Six Front and Eighty One Rear. Pre-ordered the SHIV Comp. :) No more bike-related purchases for the rest of the year except tubes, CO2 and race fees for me.

Really? It's only 1 week into the year and you are all purchased out? This one, I can't buy....

Wearing baggies on a cervelo makes me a sad panda. Sure looks like a nice rig though.

Thanks, I was coveting this bike forever and finally went for it during the holidays. I see from your signature that you have good taste in bikes too. :thumb:

By the way, I was just visiting SF for the holidays (I live in DC) and man, I am so jealous of your cycling opportunities out there. I went to the headlands around the Golden Gate Bridge and saw cyclists doing those incredible hills. Seemed kinda scary for someone not used to such big hills but also a lot of fun. Plus, you guys generally have warmer weather so year-round cycling is possible.

Oh yeah, that pic of the guy on the black S2 wearing baggy shorts is kind of contradictory. He even has aero wheels! But his attire says "commuter bike."

Look Keo 2 Max Carbons. For real this time. Bought a pair on CL, they ended up being the Graphites, seller owned up to the mistake, we opted to just unwind the whole deal as he had another buyer at this asking price. Still need bar/stem/saddle/seatpost for the Kirk. Probably order this next month as the CCard has taken a serious hit this month already.

I have to think that way to TRY and NOT purchase anything else haha. I think I'm purchasing a cassette too though... I don't want to switch cassettes... :P I'll be back in this thread a week later!

New primary wheels for the touring bike should be at my door within 18 hours. I'll have a picture up within 24.
