Thanks guys!

They're much smoother and more comfortable than my old set up (rs-10's and scwable Lug's). So far I posted my fastest overall time (not by much) on my normal short ride which is 12 miles. That was today and it was a little chilly / dark this evening compared to my late summer day run.

So far I'm very very very happy. We'll see if they "break-in" a bit more after a few hundred miles. They have a whopping 30 miles on them so far haha.

I thought they were quite loud cruising when I spun them at home but compared to my friends zip 404s they are a little quiter.

A new to me 2008 Felt F3! Now I have to sell my cross bike to pay for it (N+1 is not permitted by my wife, so I have to make it N+0)

I have both the Polar bottle and the Camelbak Podium Chill bottle. The Camelbak is better. The Camelbak's valve that you never need to close is superior, and also the Camelbak is made of material that is easier to squeeze, which might sound trivial but actually makes a difference. I always prefer the Camelbak bottles.

I have 2 Camelbak Podium Chill bottles, love those things!

Speaking of bottles:

Yesterday's CX race was at a winery and I thought it prudent to invest in some spousal pacification.

I just ordered a set of Boyd Vitesse wheels to replace the stock Shimano RS10s on my 2011 CAAD 10. Here's hoping they make me faster :)

The camelbak bottles are MUCH better than the Polar ones. For non insulated I love the Specialized purist hydroflo bottles. The valve is much better and quieter (the camels squeal a lot when I use them around the house). The plastic is also so soft and easy to squeeze. I have both the camelbak chills and hydroflos and use them both.

I just put those on my wife's carbon road bike for winter. They are terrific! Way better than Crud Roadracers or the short Raceblades.

I hadn't seen them before watching a demo at the S.F. Bike Expo SKS booth a couple of weeks ago. It's an ingenious solution for riding a modern (no eyelets) road bike in the rain.

DUDE I need some of those fenders! Where can I get some more info on how they install? The SKS Germany site didn't show much.

There is probably an online review somewhere but basically, the fenders come in 4 pieces... a front and a back half for each wheel. The two halves snap into place on little quick release brackets that get sandwiched in with your road brake caliper. Because of that, there isn't actually full coverage at the brake caliper, but in practice, my wife (who often insists on wearing a bright pink castelli skort), doesn't get any striping. The 'struts' are secured to similar quick release brackets down by the axle. Those brackets at the axle actually replace the QR Skewer's springs and just clamp in place right there on the skewer. Because they are mounted to a point exactly in the center of the wheel, they need no strut adjustments for length (you are limited to probably a max tire size of 700x25, which is what the wife runs with ample clearance). The struts Do however slide on the fender itself so you can fine tune the bracing points along the fender's circumference. This is good, since I also tacked on a thick polyurethane mud flap on the rear which is pretty heavy and needed the brace further back to stabilize it better. To remove the whole fender, just press the little gray buttons for the three release points for the back half of each fender, then the one button that holds the shorty front half of each fender and you're done. All that's left in place are the little tabs.
