Just ordered some parts and tools to replace worn-out parts and facilitate me cleaning and servicing other parts. As always, I try to replace any parts I take off my bike with new, lighter weight parts.

Man your grip strength must be Hulk like!
Hope there's a warranty on those faulty Breaks.

Wasn't really looking for LTD but it was really good price on ChainLove

Nice. Just make sure the LTD is your size. The Ergonova is weird, the top is sized like outside-to-outside; only the drop is true to the size, center-to-center. If ride the hoods a lot, you may need to size up.

They work great and barely have to grip them at all. Not like I put much stress on them anyways as I only weigh 122 lbs (female)

These type of brakes came stock on my Specialized Dolce Sport 2011 and I have never had a problem with them.

Ultegra 6700 groupset on ebay. Part by part, most new, some lightly used. Already had the right shifter.
3T Ergosum Team bars
105 pedals

Just need a stem, cables/housing, and bar tape to complete the bike. Crossing fingers that hardware is all included and I don't need too many runs to the LBS.

I have a Team version of the same bar on my other bike so its all good

On Friday I bought a 2009 BMC slc01 promachine, SRAM Force. This thing is insane. I have never ridden a bike that felt like it and pulled the trigger. Then, I stumbled upon a craigslist deal on a Leader v1 729 TRK that will be my new city/beater bike... I spent WAY too much money on Friday. Luckily, I had the support of my wife and was able to sleep in our bed all weekend, avoiding the futon treatment. With two new bikes in one day, I decided that it's new bike week!

Bought a (barely) used trainer off Craigslist for the long MN winter. I hope my downstairs neighbor doesn't kill me.

expatbrit 10-21-13 04:40 PM

Cygolite Metro 360 for some winter training.

Shopping for a roadbike. Broke. Somehow, it's going to be an issue;

Went down and spoke with them today to try to work out a schedule or less intrusive area of the apartment I can set up in.

2013 Specialized Tarmac Pro SRAM SL4 with Mavic Cosmic SL wheelset

Before anyone else says it: Yeah the pedals are only on until my speedplays and shoes come in from overseas. I only have MTB shoes currently, Lol

Hey I use those pedals too!
:thumb:
I actually prefer my SPD's over my SL's, my carbon sole is stiffer on my SPD's than the 1's on my SL's.
& these pedals offer a good platform, no not spots.

PatrickGSR94 10-22-13 03:32 PM

I also use those same PD-A530 pedals on my road bike, which is my commuter. But yeah I also only have SPD shoes, don't really care for the non-walkability of road bike shoes.

I love the A530's because I can ride 15 miles to work with bike shoes, then hop on it during lunch break to go down the street or something with my office shoes.

Picked up this 07 trek pilot 2.1 off craigslist a couple days ago for cheap. I'm a mtn biker but thought it would be nice to have a road bike for when I don't feel like or can't hit the trails. It has had some parts swapped out over the years and mostly not for the better but should be fine for me. Pedals will have to go.

Coaching services. Expensive, but I bet it's going to be the best thing I ever bought in terms of getting faster.

True enough. There's a group within an hour of where I live that I'm considering, but fee is roughly $200/mth (includes all power analysis) with a 6 month minimum. Seemed like a lot, mind if I ask is this in the ballpark?

robbyville 10-23-13 07:22 AM

Also picked up a Cyclops Super Magneto training kit (trainer, pad, climbing blocks) at a stellar price. I had thought magnetic trainers were dead but I actually liked it more than the fluid in a side by side test.
