~500 Miles Used - Rival Mini Group (Shifters, 12-27 Cassette, KCNC 10spd Chain, Front and rear derailleur) for the Allez
~80 miles used - 2 Bontrager RL Hardcase All Weather tires. (700/28) for the touring bike.
I might also pickup the 46/36 crankset/bb and TRP Cross brakes the seller has as well. If the deal is right. (These would be for the touring bike as well) So I can kick the Sora/Tiagra stuff and have 10 spds across the board.

I am still expecting to receive a full FORCE group for the Carbon Bike. (That won't be for another month or so though)
Should pick it all up on Monday.

Edit: Confirmed the purchase of FSA Gossamer 36/46 Crankset w/ BB and TRP Canti Cross Brakes (All for exactly my limit)

Nice Giro helmet.

Wore it today for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised, I really like it. Felt great, glasses are much more comfortable now than they were with the Atmos, also easier to put the glasses on the helmet during climbs.

What's their transit time here to the West? 5 business days?

They had my tires (or TYRES for them) in process for 5 days before they shipped it out yesterday. I'm not in a rush but I guess I've been spoiled by the fast processing times here .

it's 2012. If the store your buying your stuff from can't PROCESS it in less than 48 hours. Cancel your order.

Just got a cycling cap with my team colors. Never had a cycling cap before and I don't know if I'll like it but it actually fits.

Stage 1 of the road bike upgrade extravaganza is pretty much complete. Just need to test the hood height and wrap the bars. Total weight loss was about 1.5 lbs.

White SRAM hoods by Origin8. Hope they don't suck, but for $12, I'm not expecting miracles. I saw really poor reviews on the Hudz brand so I took a chance on these.

Pretty new to cycling, but I just got some Continental Ultra Gatorskin tires for my Trek 1.2.

I'm so excited for my first full year of riding!
