You and I are in the same frame of mind... I just picked up some LG Course Thermal Bibs & Pants for the cold months.

It's OK. You can call them tights. We won't think you're a sissy ballerina :)

For my 2008 Trek Portland:
Shimano 105 5700 Crankset, Front and Rear derailleurs, Cassette, and Chain; Ultegra 6700 bottom bracket; and Bontrager Race Lite stem (to replace the Specialized one the previous damned owner put on this bike). Gonna have these installed this weekend and the bike overhauled (cabling, bearings, grease, yada, yada). She'll be just like new on Monday!!

Some recent Doodads which make me happy - it's the little things :)
  • Cannondale Pack Me vest - Hi-Vis and stowable for fall.
  • Kool Kovers, because I lost one of my Speedplay covers last month. I like these better than the Speedplay version.
  • KoolStop Dura2s Dual Compound Awesome! Feel (and brake) noticeably better than the stock Ultegra pads, which seem to pick up grit easily and chew up my rims more than I would like. I've never had a problem with KoolStops doing this before.
  • Just about time for a new Ultegra chain.
  • And finally a Road Bike friendly bell from Cateye - Been trying to ride extra lawful and conscientious these days after the recent bad press and "bikelash" cyclists have been getting in NYC. This tiny bell is a HUGE aggravation saver and one of the few I could find that fits 31.8 bars.

I've got the packme jacket.... mofo gets hot even in the cold wind.

nice to have it pack down to fit in a jersey pocket, though remember to unpack it afterward or it'll look permanently wrinkled

MagicHour 10-06-14 11:26 AM

Not sure about the jacket version but the vest is good - has a large mesh panel so is highly ventilated in back, while the front keeps the wind chill off. Wore it for entire ride yesterday ranged from high 40s in the morning to high 50s later on and I never overheated, but I did unzip a bit while climbing.

The jacket version I've got doesn't have any ventilation, but is supposedly 'breathable'. It definitely serves its purpose to help keep the wind chill off... or non-existent.

Bar tape and a spoke.
I broke a spoke - first time ever! - on a ride Sunday, and on the way home I stopped by the shop to get it fixed. Bar tape had come loose and messy, and was partly scuffed up from a wreck back in the spring, so I had them replace that, too. I wanted charcoal gray again, but the closest thing they had was something that mimicked CF weave. It looked OK in the box, but on the bars, well... It's not as thick as the original, but the padding is just as satisfactory, if not a little better for giving a more level finish. Also because it's not as thick, the gawky bendiness of the bars (as opposed to classic graceful curves) is more apparent. But what's really apparent is the fact that it's fake CF. Kinda ghetto looking, actually, but I don't mind too much.

Cycle-ops Mag trainer used off craigslist. Have been looking for a trainer for a while to have the indoor option for a quick recovery spin or whatever when the weather sucks or I don't want to drive to ride (I need to go at least 15mins to get to safe roads)

Looks like the fun is just starting, and there will be more "cycling-related purchases" in the near future.

I have 3 road cranksets in the house, and none of them fit the Giant because it has a proprietary bottom bracket form factor called BB86. I had to buy a new one (went cheap and got a Shimano 105) and a Shimano->BB86 adapter.

Now it turns out that none of my stems fit either, because Giant has a 1 1/4" steerer and 99% of stems out there (and 100% of stems I own) are 1 1/8". Brief check of nearby LBS inventories turned up a store 30 miles away that might have 1 1/4" stems in stock.

Got a good deal on the frameset though ($1799+tax), so I can afford spending a bit extra.

Bought two. Cost me almost as much as the tyres for my vehicle.

Picked up a wool base layer yesterday from my LBS - $40. Haven't tried wool before.

Also got a bike pump - $50 :(

Got up this morning, checked email and received a 25% coupon from active gear - bought a riding jacket ($50), socks ($12) and a pair of MTB shoes.($100) :)

Yesterday I picked up some winter pants, winter gloves and a balaclava from Nash. - $140

That should do it I hope, 'cos I'm in the poor house now.
I just need some snow to test it all...:crash:

If it's fairly fine merino, it's hard not to love. I'm surprised that you didn't go with merino socks; they're usually the gateway drug - you should get a couple pairs. The Smartwool PhDs are available everywhere, are pretty good, and are available in difference thicknesses and REI has some similar house-brand offerings for a pretty good value, but my favorites would be from Swiftwick. If you come across them at an LBS, buy a pair even if you don't need them.

I'd just get a shim.

Edit: actually that's going the other way. That sucks.
