I could buy 30 16 g threaded cartridges for $39.93 including shipping ($1.33 each - Amazon).

I liked the idea that 12 g is just right for my tire size. Just push the button and it inflates fully. However, now I realize that isn't such a big advantage, and that the 16 g threadeds are worth the small extra expense.

Wasn't the most recent purchase, but it came in today. I know a few people PM'd me wanting to see accurate color representation of it.

Nice!!! My Ultegra one shipped on Monday, only a 3 week turnaround. As far as learning the power stuff, I read roughly half of this and it's pretty awesome. Definitely changes my perspective on everything, not just training with power.

It's still at the shop, going to leave it at the wall since they sell 1-2 s-works bikes a year (very small market) so it's cool to have on display. I'm waiting for the new Ultegra Di2 stuff to come out in Nov/Dec so I probably will not have it on the road till spring unfortunately. Maybe I'll put it in the hot or not thread and get commented on my bars not being dropped low enough or something.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. It's an 08' OCR C3. I paid $550.

I'm a total dork and leave the last little bit of gas in there, as long as it's screwed in tight, it seems to hold pretty well. Of course, I seem to get flats practically hourly, so the gas never has time to leak out.

I'm down to my last 4, I should probably stock up again. I should check out walmart, however, I try to avoid that store at all costs.

Also, I want the cannondale water bottles with the bunnies humping on them (even thought I know they'll be junk) and ordering more cartridges from amazon would give me an excuse to pick them up.

ha!

thanks for the link greatly appreciated. I didn't realize they had already made the new ultegra version congrats! I hope and think that this will be a great power meter option for the masses. In my case I really wanted to stick with dura ace and the only option other than stages was SRM at 3k or so. I just couldn't imagine doing that as a recreational cyclist

They technically haven't released the 6800 one I don't believe, I sort of jumped the gun on ordering it before I made my mind up on the groupo. If it turns out that there is a compatibility issue with a 6700 crank on a 6800 group then I'll work it from there.

Ah gotcha, well I know that there is little difference between 7900 and 9000 left crank and would assume the same for 6700 vs 6800 other than aesthetics. I hope to try first ride tomorrow, I know you have a while to wait but good luck!

Does that make all y'all "POSERS"? LOL...

SpeshulEd 09-12-13 08:11 AM

Probably, but thats ok.

In addition to co2 and a second chuck so I don't have to keep swapping from bike to bike, I bought these (life needs more humping bunny socks - figured this was a better option than poorly made water bottle):

On the subject of water bottles, does anyone have any good recommendations for a non insulated bottle? I have podium big chill 25oz bottles for summer, but now that the summer is winding down, I'd like something smaller and non insulated.

Ghost Ryder 09-12-13 08:25 AM

I love my regular Podiums, the valves on the Camelbacs are just too good to pass up.

Sweet! I didn't want the water bottle (too small ... I know ... I know, the rules...)

Those sock will be a bigger hit than my "TATAs" socks with the boobs on them

If you prefer the jet valve camelbak makes non-insulated bottles....here is 21oz non-insulated for 9:50 shipped

SpeshulEd 09-12-13 10:15 AM

Sounds like I should stick with camelbak then.

No love for the specialized hydroflow or elite bottles?

I shouldn't be buying anything beyond consumables, but an excellent deal was presented.
