Lezyne SV-5 Multi-Tool

A pair of Continental GP4000s tires-

I ordered 700x25 since I heard it is a little more comfy than 23 and there is no difference in performance, and the roads where I ride in India are bad, so I'd love a bit of extra comfort.

I saw this on BZ too. I think you should always have a multi tool with spoke tools. Have used them twice in the last few years for myself, and have had it borrowed a couple of times too.

In fact, I have a really small Topeak which has spoke tools as well as a chain tool. Not heavy, not bulky, so why be handicapped when far from home.

BTW, many feel the 25mms are faster than 23mms.

Others as well as I have had horrendous side wall issues with these tyres on bad Indian roads. Would love to hear your experiences.

My Cat Eye Urban wireless "worked fine"; Strava data from my phone was "good". This is another level and truly a luxury, I'm spoiled now. It's so nice to have whatever data you want in front of you, now I need to learn the more advanced functions.

My droid is quite bulky, & I want a dedicated comp for my bike.
Something that does it all(all I need). I'd like to stow my gargantuan device in my jersey pocket sooner that later. ;)
It will be an early Xmas present to myself. :lol:

His stuff is nice but is seriously a super nice humble guy. He built me one for my Crumpton as well. The price was less than a high end seatpost saddle combo.

bianchi10 11-11-13 09:01 AM

Unfortunately, I still tinker around with saddle position too much to get a one piece like that.

Just ordered a Shimano 6800 front hub for my new wheelset project. Haven't ordered a rim and spokes yet, but it'll be a Pacenti SL-23 and Sapim CX-Rays.

Got these for a nice price on Ebay. Doubt they'll make much of a difference at my fitness level but on paper they are a huge upgrade from my current R500s

Caved in and got a Sonic Fluid indoor trainer on sale with a CycleOps front block riser for the frigid sub-0 days ahead.http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/m...psbb72da03.jpgMock setup in the living with my motivation on the tube for next season. :-)Heading outside for a quick ride now to enjoy what's sure to be one of the last days in the 40s for a few months...

You need to get to "set it and forget it"....

Already dark out by the time I get off of work, so I've been limiting my outdoor riding to weekends. I've had my trainer set up for awhile now.

I'd swap that rear tire out with a smooth tread to cut down on the noise from the trainer. Also, go out and buy some foam mats to put under it or you'll get a hell of a lot of noise off that hardwood floor!

RULE #35
// No visors on the road.
Road helmets can be worn on mountain bikes, but never the other way around.

Rules? I don't need no stinkin rules! Actually, I just bought the cheapest one that fit. I don't know all the secret rules yet.
