Griffen Kompresser boron carbide aluminum metal matrix composite (what a mouthful) frame. Just about finished building it up.

Just a suggestion, but that skewer cam lever will make more sense if you move it to the non-drive side of the hub. That's how it's usually done and it works quite well.

I decided you can't buy helmets in colors like these unless you are prepared to have multiples, it's just too clashy.

I was excited about this helmet and had an opportunity to race with one this fall. I had two major complaints. There is no place to put your sunglasses unless you buy smith optics. The cooling was sub par despite having massive cooling vents... Chris Froome would endorse this helmet because the only time you get airflow is when you're looking at your stem.

Wat? It holds my radars really, really well. In fact I've read many professional reviews that say some smiths are the worst fitting sunglasses.

When it's all said and done I think everything will cost me $0 by reselling stuff, having a cashback CC, cashbacks through sites, price matching and earning credits on a website:

those Lakes look a little too similar to Specialized 74 for me to not think they are a rip off.

spdntrxi 02-11-15 10:04 PM

Shimano C24's for me too...

Tiny seat bag.

Probably vice versa would be more accurate.

Always regretted selling my bike bag, picked up one this week for a steal....
Much easier lugging around than a cardboard box.

took off a specialized s-works stem (17+ degree, i think a 90 or 100mm) that was aluminum. bought a Ritchey WCS carbon matrix stem (+6 degree 110mm). such a difference in the handling.

And I make three, though they are back ordered so it'll be a few weeks until I see them.

Insert sad face.

I've gone semi-berserk this month and bought a pair of Shimano mtb shoes, a Giro Synthe helmet, and a Stages Power meter.

where did you order your C-24s from Bob? And how much, if you don't mind my asking, did you pay? I also just ordered a set today, from PBK, which seemed to be one of the lesser expensive places to get them from and there was no indication (yet) of any delay.
