I agree. I have both and they each have their perks. The S3 is all about cutting edge hardware, and cool features. The iPhone/iPod is all about great apps and a sleek OS. A lot of people argue over it like it's a religion. The way I see it, people should just try both, and stick to what they appreciate the most.

2 Avid 160mm HSX rotors and an Ultega12-30 cassette for the Volagi. (And finished the triple conversion last evening). I also wound up double-ordering 6 GP 4 Seasons tires from Wiggle for a total of 4 -25mm and 8-28mm. I now have at least a 2 year supply of tires and a ton of the incredibly heavy tubes that Wiggle throws in.

I'm a tech guy and apple critic that switched from a galaxy s to a 4s. On paper it could be considered a downgrade but I have been very pleased. The smaller size and simplicity is almost a welcome experience. I deal with system configuration and testing for 9 hours a day so I don't mind apple's restrictive but stable environment. Samsung was consistently slow with pushing updates and every one had large issues. At this point, I would only switch back to android if I could get a clean android install without an mfg overlay.

Just installed the Lumotec headlight I picked up in PDX... wonderful light in a classic design.

24-70/2.8L. What impresses me more is its minimum close focusing distance. ISO400 f2.8 @70mm handheld :

No post sharpening. Just adjusted levels to eliminate the hue from my shop's fluorescents.

Bought my first cold weather gear. Hope I did well, not too hot or cold. Feel pretty good about what I paid (~$235 shipped for everything here).

Went w/ mostly Gore Bike Wear stuff as I find its one of the only few brands that fit me (tall and skinny).

Under Armour HeatGear Compression Long Sleeve Base Layer

Gore Power 2.0 Tights Short+ (needed new shorts anyways, plus the chamois in these feels WAY better than my Cannondale shorts)

Gore Power Thermo Jersey - Not my 1st choice of colors, but got it for $50, so went w/ price over color

Rollers. Cheaper than full set of cold weather gear.

Bought some long tights, arm warmers, skull cap and ear warmer last week. Today I picked up a new seat wedge bag that's about twice as large on the inside as my current tiny bag. Now I should be able to actually carry a spare tube with me.

Picked up some used/warranty replacement 5700 105 shifters to gain the hidden cables over my 5600 105 shifters. Of course I rewrapped the bars at the same time. It's a whole new ride with the new tires I just installed, now running 25mm and everything is marvelous.

Cinelli Unicanitor saddle for my old Schwinn.

God, I love my 24-70. I find that bad boy attached to my 7d all the time. Though when I am shooting food, I'm more and more using my 100mm f/2.8 w/ IS L macro lens. (which the 24-70 has the same focus distance. :P)

You should give the TS-E 90 a whirl sometime, then. When it comes to food and small(ish) products, there's none better.

A jersey, a carbon bottle holder and a seat picked randomly based on reviews....

alexaschwanden 11-07-12 06:10 PM

I bought a Bavaclava for winter riding off eBay 3$, works great.

AlphaDogg 11-07-12 09:51 PM

I got new wheels! :D


They're FSA RD-60 wheels and they ride great. Nice and stiff.
