16oz of Prolink ;) that should last a while. I will just refill my 4oz bottle vs using the sprayer for better control.

Virtually brand-new 6700 Ultegra front derailleur. By accident - I bid a pitiful AU$20,knowing they're worth way more than that,and was amazed I won! Got it today,and am even more amazed...

Mikesbikes had 20% online coupon right before the end of the year.. so I save ~80 bucks.. made the price equal to lowest online prices I have seen and I get to throw a little money to the LBS. They liked me in 2013.

Just bought my racing license for 2014... it's unbelievable the amount of money that is expended in order for me to suffer like never before!:eek:

Dang, I was on edge the whole 9-hour trip to the beach last year when we had just 2 bikes, 100+ pounds total, supported by that single hitch support point. I couldn't imagine carrying 4. I'm guessing you can only carry 4 bikes with a 2" receiver, right?

I'm always nervous about my bikes being out on a rack. I usually just pack them into the trunk/backseat to avoid having to look back in the rear-view and see them suspended from the car at 55+ MPH.

You get used to hauling bikes. I have a 5 bike rack and I have actually put 5 bikes on it. Bungees are nice to keep everything from moving around. I am not worried about anything falling off a Class III receiver, with a locked hitch pin. I had an attachment for my snowboards but that wobbled like crazy and freaked me out. I just stuck them in the car instead and cleaned up the snow later.

FSA Omega Compact handle bars from Competitive Cyclist. $5.00 credit, not much, but then, the bars are only $45.00.

I just installed mine (again) although I went with a 38mm this time. So comfortable and cheap.

It's heaven-sent as a climber being able to go on the drops while climbing :)
