My first Bib and jersey. Both Garneau. After a good 25 mi ride I can say I had no idea what I was missing. I had been riding in basketball and compression shorts and a t shirt. The Bib with the padding is sooo comfortable! And the jersey feels like the wind just comes right through and cools me down. Im sure this will help me do some longer rides. And the blue on the jersey matches my Celeste Binanchi very well :)

http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=268118Cygolite Hotshot 2 watt rechargable taillight. I'm hoping it's pretty bright because for the first time cars are giving me a lot of room when they pass me.

I have the hotshot taillight, it's insanely bright, it will leave spots in your eyes if you look directly into it.

I don't have money like you guy do so I had to settle for a Sigma BC 1609 STS Double Wireless Bicycle Speedometer. It seems to work well so I guess time will tell. http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=268144

Being a tad on the poor side, I had to settle for a Avenir Bigmouth seat bag. It may not be up to most of your standards but as long as it's good enough I'll be happy. I guess time will tell. http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=268146

My latest purchase was two weeks ago when I upgraded from a Trek 7100, that I bought 10 months ago, to a carbon Cannondale Synapse 5 and what an upgrade it is. I can't believe how much quicker my rides are. Wish I could find my camera to post a pic.

I've got 2 Sigma computers. Mine are wired, but they are rock solid reliable and easy on the batteries. Great value.

Had the co-op where I volunteer order me a pair of Conti GP4000S's to replace my ****ty stock Kenda Kadences. Front one got a sidewall tear at the 1000 mile mark, rear one just got a sidewall tear at the 2000 mile mark. I'm using a Gatorskin on the front and a Serfas Seca on the rear in the meantime.

Also bought another Quik Stik because they make tire installs super ****ing easy. I now keep one in my saddle bag and one at home.

- Tune Mag180 Campagnolo freehub body conversion kit from starbike.com for the Enve 65s on the Noah. Just like my other set of Enve 65s/DT Swiss 240s on the Merak, the rear freehub is a simple DIY conversion.

I have the wired version of that same computer and I love it, but their customer service sucks! I had a problem with getting the sensor on a rear mount relay on the stay to get close enough to the magnet on the spoke to get a reading, I sent 4 or 5 e-mail and no one ever bothered to e-mail me back about a fix, so I had to jerry rig it to make it work, but it would have been nice if they had responded. Cateye has fantastic customer service but I had so many problems with their wireless units I gave up on wireless and Cateye.

2 sets of 65s?

The current and 2nd set of 65s were too good of a deal to pass up. A friend of mine bought them last summer after my recommendation and sparingly used it, mostly on weekend rides with our group and two charity events in LI. He jumped on the Zipp FC-clincher bandwagon this spring and I bought the 65s for $800.

3kmi 08-20-12 05:43 PM

Clincher or tubular?

primov8 08-20-12 05:58 PM

Tubulars. I couldn't believe how easy it was to go from Shim/Sram=Campy freehub on the DT 240 rear hub. I cleaned out the old grease, used Mobil-1 synthetic grease and the rear hub is so much quieter now.
