I had excel sports build me a new front wheel as I went stupid during the pro challenge and left it in the parking lot. Fortunately I have a spare front wheel.

The data i need is HR, Cadence, distance, elapsed time and Power. 200 seems to only have 2 of 5. Which makes it pointless

edge 200 is a useless device for cyclists. don't waste your money.

Just bought a set of Fulcrum Racing Zero Ltd. Edition for my Colnago C59.

Took them out for a ride this morning...what a sweet set of wheels.

I will post pics of the wheels in my bike and a more complete report.

Please do, very interested. About a 100 pairs worldwide? :0

I've decided to give clipless a try on my Trek 1.2. I went with an inexpensive set that are flat one side for conventional pedaling (Wellgo WPD‑M17C). First ride to the office today and while I had one close call, didn't fall over.

I learned that pedals can be VERY hard to remove. I finally had to hang my head in shame and bring it to the LBS to get the left pedal off.

Just an FYI but the left pedal is left-hand threaded (reverse). Always rotate towards the rear wheel when starting the wrench/hex key at the 12 o'clock position.

& you can use a hex key on the inside to make it easier to remove on most modern pedals.

Yeah I made sure I was going the right way and tried the allen key too. Wrecked one wrench getting the right pedal off and just couldn't get the left and starting to round it. Doses of liquid wrench in there were no help either. Even LBS mechanic had some trouble, but he got it pulling on the pedal wrench at the same time as a long allen key. All good now.

:thumb: for ribblecycles.co.uk for shipping these out asap. I've made purchases from PBK, Wiggle, Chainreactioncycles but never from ribble until now. Prior to ordering from them, I emailed and asked if orders were processed and shipped out the same day and their response was yes. I placed an order first thing Thursday morning; by Friday evening, no updates as the order was still showing as being processed. I called Ribble before my morning Sat. ride and asked why my order wasn't shipped on Thursday. The gentleman explained they were a day or two behind because of how busy the warehouse was. To my surprise, I received an email Sat. evening with a tracking # via USPS EMS and these were delivered this afternoon. Our doorman had it in his hands as he saw me walking through the lobby.

Those are really nice saddles, the flex wing design seems to actually work and aids in comfort, I was surprise when I got my first one because I haven't found a decent racing saddle that you can ride for 75 plus miles. One of the reasons I use Brooks instead. But my first Fizik was a Vitesse I got an LBS as a turnout off a new bike for $30, then about 2 months ago got a Fizik Aliante from the same LBS and another turnout for $35; both saddles are really quite pleasant to ride on, not up to the Brooks but better then anything else I tried that wasn't a Brooks.

Thanks for the response :) Lookign really forward to it. I feel kind of guilty because i can go for many hours on my current saddle wothout any real discomfort. I have been using the same saddles for so long though, I just want to see/feel what else is out there. By buying it secondhand I can resell it for about the same price if I end up not liking it. I actually also just bought an old aliante for 30 euros, just to see if the shape agrees with me.

Not cycling related, but I use my current one (3GS) every time I go for a ride. My avatar picture definitely contradicts this post.

I've been caught in the rain too many times lately and have wondered if the idiot drivers in the Atlanta suburbs could see me so decided to put a blinky on the back of both bikes. So on my last visit to my favorite bike shop, along with a new chain and cables for the Litespeed, I picked up a couple of Planet Bike Blinky 7 taillights. Looks kinda dorky but at least I'm a little more visible. :o

I'm working on a rear-facing setup so when I am the victim of a hit-and-run my family will know who to sue.
