How did going to a longer gear at the BOTTOM of your cassette help your climbing?

Other than more tubes and CO2 cartridges that is... :cry:

Ive got a black S works helmet also. Might do that, but I figure the helmet and white radars go with the shoes. Might use my Black s works helmet once I get my Pink radars. That's gonna have to wait though because I'm still waiting for my custom Bont Vaypor + shoes to come in. Not sure what I will have left from my funds after I pay for those.

I completely miswrote that!! HAHA It was 12-25 to 11-28.

The box from PBK showed up today. Needed some wider bars for my commuter, a longer post, and a longer quill stem. I couldn't find the bars in silver, or the stem in black, so went with this combination as the bars will be taped anyway.

You have that problem, too? I can never find matching stuff without spending a fortune and it drives me nuts.

I was definitely finding that problem with the things I've been trying to replace. Especially as 'new' options are limited for 26.0mm bars and quill stems.

I finally bought a road bike specific helmet. Too bad, I bought from the slowest free shipping bike company on the planet. I'm "nashing" my teeth.

I think I may have crossed a line with this purchase...

Not sure if you knew this or not, if not it's a little late now, but Deda does make a silver bar called the Elementi Speciale silver in a 26mm with your choice of 42,44, or 46 widths.

You bought it from Nashbar? I got mine after a week. :thumb:

Can't wait to use it this weekend.

bugly64 07-18-14 12:21 PM

I did get it from Nashbar. I bought it Monday and it is supposed to get here next Wednesday. I was expecting it sooner.

TromboneAl 07-18-14 02:02 PM

I got one of these:

Combo Cable Bike Lock

at Harbor Freight. Not particularly secure, but I leave it at a coffee stop on one of my routes so I can lock up my bike when I go in to buy a cup of coffee.

I now have five locks distributed around the towns near here.

That is odd, I have been shopping with Nashbar for over a year, and not only is shipping fast, their customer service is top notch

I did see that on their site, however when you click on the link and look at the specs, the clamp is listed as 31.7mm. Now, that is possibly a typo on their part, but it also wasn't available at PBK. I was looking for low cost and free shipping to get the bars/stem/post replaced on a bike I picked up used that had a 40cm Cinelli EXA bar and Cinelli 1A 80mm stem. Much too small for me.

? Saddle Aliante VSX K:ium

Aliante VSX finally arrived after a three week backorder. 50 mile test ride and I'm fairly pleased with it. Not sure if it should be more nose down (it's at zero degrees now) but so far there's a noticeable improvement in pressure relief on the perineum over the Arione.

A single Conti GP4000sII in 25. Replacing a damaged GP4000s in 23.
