Nope. Most clothes containing a latex or spandex is finished off with some preservative that helps the clothes stay new and fresh during the packaging and inventory process. These are chemicals you don't really want on your junk however.

The wheels were the weakest link on my bike, so now they're far from it:

Nothing in small quantities really. But it is not FDA approved for being "Skin" safe application and therefore definitely be washed off. Not like you will burn or anything, but it is more of a chemical starch which is why it takes a wash or two to get rid of it all. It's really the layer sitting ON TOP which you are exposed to but being the sensitivity of the area and the function that it provides means the conditions will be at their worst for getting a skin rash or something sometimes. Sweating equal open and available pours and anything unnatural is probably not going to benefit you long term. Honestly though, I'm sure it's no worse than drinking Large name soda of any kind.

[QUOTE=primov8;14085294]- Sidi Genius 5.5 vernice white[QUOTE]

Nice choice. I love mine now that they are broken in. Best shoes I tried in the price range. I suggest the Louis Garneau Thermo Cool insoles unless you have a preference. Post some pictures of the shoes with the buckles. Interested.

primov8 04-11-12 08:24 AM

NWS Alpine- thanks for the input; I'll give those LG insoles a try. As for the Sidis, these are my first pair and since my brother, along with a couple others who already have these, I wanted my shoes to look a bit different from everyone else.

Axiom 04-11-12 08:13 PM

Bontrager flare 2 rear light, and Bontrager solstice shorts. The light works great, but the shorts aren't that comfortable. Oh, I also bought some park tool chain cleaner, and some chain lube.

3kmi 04-11-12 08:27 PM

Record 11 shifters, F and R derailleurs, KMC x11sl chain, chorus cassette 11/25

crazyarm07 04-11-12 08:34 PM

Finally found a Cervelo S1 frameset in my size on ebay for a good price....now just waiting for it to get here so i can build it up (using SRAM Rival I took off my S2 when I upgraded it to Red). Pics to follow.

Nothing spells Fred like an 11-36t cassette (on the tandem).

LuMax 04-12-12 08:15 AM

@rdtompki - FYI David Millar (2011 Team Garmin-Cervelo) rode an 11-36t SRAM XX setup in the 2011 Giro d'Italia while other riders rode 11-32 Apex setups including Contador.
