Score - A take off Dura-Ace FC-7800 53/39T crank. Looks brand new and got it for under $200. Heck when I saw the ad I figured even if it did show wear even the cost of a new chain ring would make it a good buy.

Sweet, I picked up a tubular set of those about a week ago. Still waiting to get my spare ready so I haven't tried them yet but I can't wait. They look great and I'm sure they ride really nice.

I wish the graphics were so "loud", i'd rather there be only 3 or 2 logos or at least ghost logos. And they are painted on and not decals that can be removed.

The tubulars are a few hundred grams lighter, so you'll be flying up the hills.

Picked up a pair of Oakley Split Jackets from Oakley Vault on sale, then followed up with a not much used set of Shimano Dura Ace WH-7850-C24-CL wheels for a decent price. Happy with both.

An ISM Adamo Prologue saddle. Should have done it a long time ago. Best thing attached to a bike my butt has ever sat on.

I ordered a 56cm FM098 frame from a group buy on Velobuild. I'm having it custom painted in a Gulf Oil racing car livery color scheme. Also ordered some 40cm carbon bars and a few odds and ends like an extra seatpost clamp, headset....

I hope that looking fast is good enough.

It's normally close to $600 + shipping + finish options + accessories. Through the group buy it's $450 + the other stuff so you save about $150. You can see the exact buy here.

Finally got a plastic bike.
End of season sales made it hard to pass up. It took a while to track down one the right size but that turned out to be the cheapest shop too.

I am interested in seeing how this works out for you and if the ordering process went along smoothly. I have been thinking about going this route and want to see how it works out for you.

I've been having trouble with my camelbak podium big chills launching from the bottle cage on fast downhills... and after one too many emergency stops and riding back UP the hill to get it, I was unable to find it on a century last week and suffered with only one bottle.

New to me and featuring "No Ejecto technology" (true, the packaging says so!).... I'm very pleased with both the look and the function.

Are those real CF? or coated?

I got glass cages over CF.

TrojanHorse 08-28-12 04:34 PM

I believe they're real CF with a nice gloss coat on top. The only option is the color of the Arundel sticker, which you can't see anyway.

Ghost Ryder 08-28-12 04:58 PM

Yup I chose glass because i didn't want to pay $60 each for the CF ones, & only save a few grams for double the price just didn't seem justifiable.
I like the matte black look of the resin too.

I got a new RADical bike stand in last week. Well built and at 39.00, free shipping it was a bargain. Very much like the Park Tool PCS-9/10 stands. Went over it with a fine toothed comb looking for weak points or materials at that price. Couldn't find any.
