All that plus a pair of knee warmers and a couple jerseys for me. :)

Just ordered a Thomson Elite Setback Seatpost for my Lynskey. Came with a nice Ti seatpost, but I need a setback, and Lynskey doesn't make a 31.6 setback. Looking forward to the Thomson, have heard great things.

And handlebars ... handlebars have just arrived recently.

These things keep turning up at the door. :D

Put a deposit down on a 2015 S-Works Tarmac frameset (black with white/red accents), which set off a chain reaction of purchases.
One frameset turned into:
-New crankset (S-Works Cranks with sram black chainrings)
-Pedals - changing from Look style to Dura Ace SPD SL, which also necessitated new cleats and cleat covers
-Saddle (S-Works Toupe)
-Cassette - changing from 11-28 to 12-25 ultegra 6800 - completely unnecessary, but I justified it by thinking the new bike needs a new cassette.
-Stem - actually was necessary because the frameset doesn't come with a stem and I'll be selling the old bike (old meaning my 3 month old 2014 Trek Domane 4.0) - went with Zipp Service Course SL Beyond Black

Ho hum, I hate my impulsiveness, is there medication for it?

Oh and can't forget two sets of new gloves because I despise the padding in my current ones. Went with some Giro Zero's and Giro LTZ II's. Also, a K-Edge Chainkeeper. I have found that I like receiving boxes more than I like using the actual purchases.

Haven't received it yet and not sure how Parcelforce works, but ordered an FSA plasma compact handlebar/stem combo for my 2014 Allez sport. Next up is an Enve seatpost as I don't like the FSA seatpost offerings.

I didnt buy it, but just won it in a route creation contest on Virtualtraining.

Got a Killer deal from my LBS on another pair of Bonts Vaypor +, so i picked them up in white also. Sold my Sworks shoes last night. Excited to get these to replace the Sworks, but was very sad to see the Sworks go. Was such a great shoe, but the Bont's width and shape is so much more comfortable for me.

$100 craigslist NIB

I thought these had a little more flex. Same size as my current Composite,

if I can hack it, should be good for some street cred on the group rides...

Nice! I have taken to calling my 2015 S-Works Tarmac "the unicorn" because it has been delayed and I don't think it's ever going to get here. Hope you don't have the same luck as me!

I ordered mine at the very end of July. My LBS called their Specialized rep and were told that the frames would not be available until Late August/Early September. So when I get it in December, I'll let you know.

It might be worth it. Nice shoes! :thumb:

I bought a trainer.

I have a pair of those and I do like them. I wear my sidis though because they have speedplay soles.

bianchi10 08-22-14 06:52 PM

Nice shoes!

JimF22003 08-23-14 04:28 AM

I bought those shoes too. I had a pair of S-works shoes that cost twice as much, and weren't any better than these (bought one size too small though). Finally found a shoe that doesn't make my feet hurt.

Nebby10 08-23-14 05:46 AM

I love my S-works shoe, they're super comfortable! Handy tip: pick up a set of the heel pads now or have your LBS order a set, because Specialized seems to run out of them exactly when they wear out...or at least it's been the trend for me.

sardond 08-23-14 01:48 PM

Scored a second set of Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLS wheels. Guy at work picked up a new bike and had the shop put them in the deal. He came to work to show the bike, I offered 1k, he bit.
