Two new bikes. Couldn't decide between trek madone and cannondale synapse so got them both. Now we'll see which becomes my favored bike.

Isn't the Synapse using a proprietary carbon crank and bottom bracket?

Nice combo.

I was thinking of getting the same setup but with the ultegra racing edition model and stages Power meter.

What's on the ultegra racing edition? I noticed that the crankset on mine is actually different from the stock picture.

Was at Wal-mart and found this helmet and found it to be more comfortable, less mushroom like, better padding (sweat control), better vented, and nicer looking (nice matte black with "carbon" highlights) than my current Giro that cost three times as much.

Just used a $5 Amazon gift card from some Linked-In survey I did to order a kit of 48 patches from China. Maybe save some money on new tubes...

Some Shimano Saint MX80 pedals for my FX 7.4. Competitive Cyclist had the best price around at $65 during one of their TDF sales so I grab 'em.

so you basically got something for nothing, and the money saved on tubes buys you more patches...such a deal...

My jersey and gloves came in that my buddy got for me and I bought the shorts, bottles and vest. When it is all on, it looks killer awesome!! Doesn't hurt that Rapha Pro team bibs are the most comfortable I have used. Never been much of a pink kind of guy, but it looks sharp for sure.

I'm not a pink kind of guy, but that is a very nice looking kit, very manly. I love my Rapha classic bibs, the most comfortable I have worn.

vschippy 07-12-14 10:49 PM

+1 on the rapha pro team bibs I have both classic and pro team the compression on the pro team is great !!!!!

My friend bought me a pair of Rapha lightweight bibs and I was really surprised how comfy they are. I would buy another pair

coppercook62 07-12-14 11:23 PM

I'm not sure if you're serious...
$5=2 tubes
48 patches can fix 48 punctures, which saves you the money spent on 46 tubes.

Well, today I decided to take my bike to my lbs for a new chain and it's first tune up hoping that I would be able to start riding again soon, well after hanging out there for a while and talking to the owner I decided to upgrade my 105 group to SRAM red . Excited for new group

I picked up another pair of Pearl Izumi Attack bike shorts from REI because I liked my first pair so much! Not to mention a couple sets of Grand Prix 4000s tires.

The 12-mile round trip for coffee is pretty easy. B10 took this pic at the end of his ride. ;)

A Campy Record group and a pair of Fulcrum Racing Zero wheels.
