Instead of repairing or replacing a defected rs20 rear hub, they ordered and installed a 2012 Ultegra wh-6700 wheelset today. i can't wait to put some serious miles on these wheels.

Lightly used Neuvations with some brand new Conti's. CL. 40 miles round trip on the 75 lb bucket bike to get 'em. They're going on my '05 Fuji Team Issue budget CF build.

Definitely makes the bike more manly. Too much red and white = pink. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

You can never have enough black on a road bike, you got to have a very steady hand and a comfy folding chair to do it. i am going to add some nice black stripes some time in the future.

That's why I'm putting those neuvations on this Fuji I picked up in July:

Castelli Presto bibs, Castelli Leggero Vest (black), two sets of Castelli wool socks, GoPro Battery Backpac and DZ Nutes Medium Embrocation. Never tried embrocation before. :)

A bit of an impulse buy. However it's now back at the shop being swapped for a 54 (from the 56 shown here). Decided I could use the lower head tube of the 54cm.

Nice Cervelo! I like the red on there.

A new set of lights to hit the road again. Haven't been riding for over half a year, so it's about time now.

Sweet that RS for $1600 is a steal

I got Shimano 105 Front and rear ders to replace the RSX/Sora combination and 105 calipers to replace the RSX calipers I had. I am liking the change, definitely an improvement in shifting and braking.

I've carried some wheels tied up to my backpack, worked fine!

As have I, but only MTB or 36 spoke old school wheels, and not for 20 miles. If one has the bike for the job, why not?

I broke down and bought a set of rollers today....I'm sure hilarity will ensue

I bought this because my Stanley coffee thermos was trashing my bottle cages. The thermos keeps liquids hot for a long time, even when I'm riding around in freezing temperatures.

Well, I know it's not much, but....*morphs into the Monty Python French waiter scene*

My fenders arrived before the wet weather. And today I hit the 20% Sports Basement sale. The vents on the Bell Lumen are smaller than the Bell Alchera :-/ I'm not sure I'll keep the helmet. I don't understand why all the black helmets. Just what I want to wear in the hot sun.
