Garneau Diamond-Red, two long sleeve A4 Marathon wicking shirts, and a test pair of Aerotech designs Men's pro bike shorts; very inexpensive and surprisingly comfortable.

Thats about about $1100?? Love me some rapha! Pro team bibs with the pink lettering would look great with that jersey!

Just sent payment for a set of wheels. Pacenti SL23, White Indsutries T11 hubs, Sapim Lasers. Will mount GP4000s to them when they arrive in a couple weeks.

Oof.. Don't remind me! Hopefully my last big purchase of the year regarding bike gear. Really don't mind paying a premium for gear if its going to last several seasons. And yes @bianchi10, those pro team shorts would look awesome.. Don't tempt me :P

bianchi10 09-12-13 06:28 PM

What size are you sheepdog?

Here is a set of Mediums with a best offer price!

I think this is calling your name!!! You said it yourself, "I dont mind paying a premium if I know its going to last several seasons." This would COMPLETE your set. as of now, its just getting you by. :p Come on, its a PAUL SMITH edition, so what if its $434!

$35 race entry today. Mt Tam hill climb.
Bought a cable on Monday. Old one broke on a ride - almost makes me want to carry a spare like I do for tubes.

i'm pretty sure i said "premium".. not "insanity" :D i saw that as i was trying to figure out what to get... great looking bit, just way too much for what he's asking/what it is imo. I snagged this club jersey and it was good enough for me.

on those bib shorts, i've heard that you need to size up.. mediums might be tight around the family jewels... i'll buy them when i turn PRO.

I appreciate the effort :lol:

Some of you folks spend more time shopping for cycling stuff than actually riding.

Well considering this thread is all about what you purchased, I can see why you would make that assumption.

Nick, it's hard to read sarcasm...do you not know or were you being funny?

:lol: I really dont know. I have a feeling I'm either going to feel really stupid or learn something I should have known this entire time lol. Rangerdavid said to peep in the middle rear pocket. I took that as there was something shipped in the rear pocket

gc3 09-12-13 07:43 PM

No they designed. a "HTFU" logo printed in there....

seymour1910 09-12-13 07:49 PM

yeah they decided instead of having it printed on the outside they would go with it inside the pocket.

bianchi10 09-12-13 08:12 PM

Oh ok. I didn't really follow the thread much, especially towards the end. Cool beans

I ordered a new square taper ISO bottom bracket. Unfortunately, they sent me a JIS. D'oh.
