A few things.............Conti GP 4000's tires; Park Tool wheel truing stand; gloves; headbands and I believe that is all for right now.

Thanks, the Ghisallo is my favourite
Bang for buck, the Reynolds 46 tubular is the best wheelset, but if you can get a set of RZR's for the same price I'd go for those

Yes, I have shortened the rear brake outer casing, with Yokozuna being compressionless you can go with a straighter path

Don't tell the finance manager though. but I've collected a lot of carbon tubular wheelsets over time, at last count it was 5 LOL

Lol that pic is obviously to show off wheelsets

I stumbled upon these on ebay.
Weight weenies will probably have a coronary.
Just add a few Swarovski crystals and it would be perfect. ;-)

That's just groovy man. What's weird is that they only cost $32 each on E-Baa...that's less then titanium and some carbon fiber cages; I didn't don't know titanium or carbon was worth more than gold. Of course I'm sure it's just a micro thin layer of electrostatic applied gold.

I just wanted to take a moment and say that I am proud of myself. Other than a few basic necessities I have not bought any cycling related things for almost 6 months.

I wish I was like you. Although have not spent much compared to what others spend, I bought a Castelli cycling kit for $140, a box of shot blocks and a bottle of GU brew powder. And just moments ago ordered some new tires (Shwalbe Ultremo ZX) because last night I discovered a fairly big hole in my front tire that showed wires, and a piece of glass lodged inside the tire with a buldge coming out the side. So that last one was pretty necessary. Now I just hope I don't get a blowout in the meantime while I wait for the tires to come in. Might make this week a recovery week just in case.

I've tried an all carbon saddle, and the only drawback was the slickness takes some getting used to. The one I tried was too short and had a cutout, so overall not what I needed. FWIW Prologo sells a carbon rail version of the one above that (they say) only weighs 85 grams.

I regularly ride 80-90 miles on it. With riding shorts I don't think it's too bad.

My used TacX Tao bottle cages arrived, but the heads on my bottle cage bolts are too wide, so it's off the to store to get some new ones. Why did they design them like that?

My new set of big fella wheels (Vuelta Corsa HD) and first pair of clipless shoes (Shimano MT33) are on the truck for delivery today. Pretty psyched!

Gharp23 08-27-13 11:17 AM

Just ordered a set of Shimano RS-81 C35 wheels, should expect them in the next 2 days! I can't wait to put them on the bike.

I know what it feels like. I just reached that point where I was kind of happy with what I had, where before, (for years) I was always looking at the next thing that was better than what I had. I guess it is part of growing up. I realize I wanted to have things for the sake of having them, rather than needing them.
