Not going to happen, at least in my neck of the woods :(

Yikes that looks like it hurt just a little.

What method did you use to remove the logo from the carbon. Did you do the carbolift or razor blade method. I am going to strip the force cranks I bought used and repaint the inside sliver outlining of SRAM in liquigas green.

After my Blackburn AirFix failed me when I had a flat yesterday (with both of my CO2 cartridges... :mad:), I did the walk of shame and brought it back to the Performance store where I bought it. They exchanged it for:

And $4 in cash.

On the cranks I sanded it, but I now prefer the razor method. I did my Trek frameset that way. It is much better than sanding.

The most boring cycling-related purchase ever:
Two Forte Omega carbon cages which are on sale right now, everybody. Try not to get too excited.
One giant box of generic 16 gram threaded CO2 cartridges. Bike shop prices on these guys are insane ($4 per, usually), got them for about a buck each on Amazon.
One Continental Gatorskin 23MM tire to replace the GP4000s I sliced open this weekend resulting in a 7AM Call of Shame. Unboot-able inch long tire slashes=suck. Only about 600 miles on that tire as well and now it's trash. WTF did I hit?

Yay me.

Just bought a set of 2012 Campy Eurus wheels for my new C59. The wheels are awesome. Will post pictures later.

Here is a link to the Campy website:

Kuat NV rack. Wanted to get Sherpa but can't put my wife's cruiser on that one (LOOONG wheelbase on that thing).

^^ I have those Omega cages and they work great, are cheap and light.

I have one and love it! Zipper is a little iffy at times, just be gentle with it (only when getting started).

NWS Alpine 07-03-12 03:33 PM

Shimano R315 heat moldable shoes, their top of the line. They'll be at the LBS Friday or Monday, and I'll get them heat/vacuum molded. Super excited, my current shoes are too big, they'll get moved to winter duty when I'm wearing wool socks.
