Yup, he should frame the pump and buy another less artistic pump.

Although its winter (and has been snowing today) I found some good deals and decided to buy some clothing for cycling once it gets warmer:

Of course, I needed tights for the early spring and a wind breaker, so I got these:
http://www.amazon.com/Pearl-Izumi-Se...l+izumi+tights (Yes, I know they don't have Chamois)
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=362966
And the Wind Breaker:
http://www.amazon.com/Pearl-Barrier-...mi+windbreaker
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=362967

And then I got two complete kits:

DNA Fuoco kit:

Cavalo Squadra 3.0 kit:

http://www.amazon.com/Cavalo-Squadra...Cavalo+Squadro
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=362971

They are all good quality and fit well. Also, if you want a good deal, all of them are, however the cavalo squadra 3.0 jersey is currently at just $25, which is insane. But overall, I'm happy with my purchase and the great deals I got.

These actually remind me of a pedal system in the early 80's, I beleive they were called aerolite, I cold be wrong but look very similar and I believe aerolite is still around

Been in the market for a new road bike so I decided to pick up a 2013 Madone 4.5 at a deep discount. Unfortunately I have a few months to ride it given the winter Minnesota is having but it sure looks great in my apartment until then! http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=363015

What are you saying? Are you saying that the Lezyne doesn't work well? if that's what you're saying then try this pump instead: http://familybikeshop.com/product/gi...p-184489-1.htm But I've never heard any complaints about the Lezyne.

My favorite LBS just opened their newest location less than 2 miles from my house. Now I don't have to go 25 miles round trip to get some tubes!

I was one of the first 100 people in the door today when they opened at 2 PM so I got a $20 gift card. Used that and some birthday cash to grab a couple things:

Ergon GP1 grips for my MTB:

And I finally got a 90mm 7 deg. stem for the road bike to replace the 90mm 17 deg stem that's on there now. I mistakenly got a 100mm 7 deg. stem awhile back which turned out to be too long, but I plan to use it on my MTB when I get some 31.8 bars.

Hm, new SRAM Red OG 1090 cassette, new SRAM 1091 chain and a gaudy looking pearl izumi jersey (on closeout). That was last week.

TOnight, new Selle Italia SLR Flow max L something or other. I'm really looking forward to that one.

Record EPS V2 upgrade kit, can't wait for it to arrive. Sold my old dérailleurs, shifters and a couple of laptops I didn't need and got the whole kit for $1,700 as an open box item so my net cost was $400...:)

Icculus21 02-07-14 04:04 PM

A set of Kool Stops, patch kit, CO2 cartriges and inflator. Exciting!!!

Thinking about a helmet upgrade.

well.........after four years of being without a car (my wife and I would share hers) I've been commuting exclusively on motorcycles. Took up cycling a few months ago, and tho my wife was a good sport about me always asking to use her car to take my bicycle to the trail, PLUS have a bike rack always on it.

I bought this...............it's a fun little car too. GOt a great deal as it was a leftover!
