Nice. Are you going for a full DA groupset? Great price.

Some recent discussion here http://weightweenies.starbike.com/fo...p?f=3&t=107294



I got them new on ebay for $112. Id say it was a steal....

Ultegra 6700 Cassette + 6701 chain for $90 from ProBikeKit.com

The chain should fetch $30 on Ebay, leaving me with a $60 Ultegra cassette :)

Tesco Track Pump


Also a Multitool Kit.

Did go intending to buy some Muc-Off Bike Cleaning Brushes but there werent any.

Anyway I reckon the Track pump and tool were much better buys and both together were the same price as the brushes alone.

You get them from seller planetcyclery? They always seem to have the black/white ones up for $112.95...not sure why that color combo seems to sell for less. I was outbid on a used set just this morning. I also like that they are adjustable unlike the blades which you have to buy in one of 2 preset tensions. I know it's a "set it and forget it" type thing, but it's nice to be able to dial it in, and not have to potentially buy another set of pedals...

Stopped by the bike shop yesterday to visit and ordered a new Ultegra 11-23 9-speed cassette for the Litespeed. The owner just called and said its here. I guess I know what I'll be doing tomorrow. :)

Yep planetcyclery I cant wait for them to come. I was going to get the regular keo max 2 for $98 but I just figured why not spend the exta $15 bucks and get carbon. The white and black will actually go well with my wilier

Yesterday I bought two PBSF's as a birthday gift for my mother. Yes, she rides a bicycle too.

Crappymonkey 09-29-12 02:51 PM

Got a Garmin USB stick so I can use it with TrainerRoad.com when it starts to get too cold to ride outside.
