Must be something off there, all my Assos stuff fits way tighter than the same size marked Rapha kit.

In December, I've bought a Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think2 frameset, Super Record crankset, and a set of POWERTAP/HED wheels. Merry Christmas to me!

Pair of bibs for short rides so I can avoid washing my expensive shorts for a 90 minute spin. Assos neopro, hope they are decent.

Also got some random blue wool socks because I'm a sock *****.

That's a unique piece. I assume the top part is a blinky.

Depending on the mode, the top part works either as blinky or steady. The light has seven modes - three daytime and four night modes. Here's the video that briefly explains how the different modes work.

bottom Go-Pro mount for my k-edge garmin mount so I can now mount my new Virb.

Have you tried the VIDEO LOOP functionality of the VIRB? I got the same model and used it today with a 20 min loop. After a 1.5 hour ride, it did not record more than an hour of my ride and I have several videos of less than 5 mins each. Let me know how it works for you because I pretty sure it does not work (at least on my unit). TIA

No, I havent. Just used normal recording so far and it's working fine.

Normal recording works fine with my unit as well. Did some research and it looks like the video loop is not working at all. Hopefully they fix it with the next firmware release (currently 3.9).

I've been on a tear lately since picking up my first road bike a couple months ago:

Shimano 105 5800 Carbon Pedals - $80
Shimano R088 Shoes (Black) - $104
Louis Garneau bib shorts - 2 @ $89 a piece
Assorted Jerseys - 4 @ $40 a piece
Front and rear flashing lights - $40 a piece

Now I'm just looking for the right portable multi-tool and the right computer and I should be set for a few months. And I thought I wouldn't need/want any of this stuff....

I got this and an F-29 for Xmas !! :) i figured I deserve it for working 15 hour days for the last 7 months !! :D

Bunyanderman 12-29-14 04:37 PM

I got them for the Ceramic bearings, and not the carbon. Well that is what I would like to think. Came in at about 13g for the pair.

My first gen Red RD has crapped out. Bought a Force RD to replace it. They look identical.

They were loud and felt rough.
