This isn't a purchase but it helps, I finally got the Mechanic position at Performance bike shop in mountainview.

New bike - 2011 Masi Speciale fixed. Decided to try SS, then fixed gear (46/16).

So far a lot of fun!

Won a 3T ARX Team stem on Ebay under the "bike parts not working" category for ~$18. The stem had a broken titanium screw stuck in one of the four front mounting holes. I mounted the stem vertically on a block and carefully drilled a ~1/8" diameter hole all the way through the stuck screw, then used the smallest "easy out" to back out the broken piece. Turns out the threads are not damaged at all. Now I have a like-new stem in my parts bin!

Those CXs are my main/overall tires now. I can't seem to like the GP4000s. I guess I really like Vittorias.

I'm in the deep end. Should be a fun summer. Now I just need to sell all my mountain stuff haha.

hmm I should probably get me some of those Ultegra SPD double-sided pedals. Keep me from having to swap back and forth between my SPD pedals and platforms when I just want a more casual ride on the road bike.

forget the pedals, just get another bike. that way you have one for casual one for serious :rolleyes:. In fact, you may want to get a backup just in case too

That's a nice shopshirt. Is it made of nylon? It looks shiny like nylon.

I bought a derailleur hanger alignment tool, and to get the free shipping a Campagnolo jersey, from BikeTiresDirect. I have 7 bikes, at least 3 of which don't shift well, although I mostly bought it for my carbon road bike. It seemed a shame that I couldn't get that one quiet when my old steel bike is silent.

That's the clincher version of my race tires. Wonderful tires.

well yeah n+1 demands I get another bike, indeed I do want a more commuter-oriented around-town with disc brakes, fenders, racks, the whole bit. But in there here and now some $80 pedals are a little easier to come by. :)

+1 on the Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX. The best sublime-feeling road tires I've ever rode on. The problem is that what makes them great (rubber compound composition) also results in them cutting easily. Never had flats resulting from cuts with them, but I always keep black Shoe Goo on hand to plug the little cuts and scrapes on the threads.

Great riding tires though!

Sportful PBK stuff. Only $100 a kit, so we'll see how it does. Defeet are always good.

Well, kind of bitter sweet purchase but new Domane 5 series frame/fork 52cm to replace the new Ridley Excalibur frame that I bought and built up this past Spring. Going to more comfort style geometry. The Ridley looks so cool though (up for sale in marketplace :))

Weight wise it's about a wash with the Trek maybe being a tad lighter. The Trek fork came in at 357g compared to the Ridley's 413g. Trek frame is around 1132g compared to Ridley 1085 with some additional small weight savings with the Trek via Seatmast cap (120g vs. 150 current), braze on der vs. clamp. Hoping to keep the finished build a tad below 15lbs with pedals.

Will build up in the next week or so, just waiting for a few more parts but all the DA9000, wheels, etc are moving from the Ridley to the Trek
