FSA Expansion Plug for 1-1/4" carbon steerers - Turned out to be just barely too small for my steerer tube ID. :mad:

Canyon Expansion Plug for 1-1/4" carbon steerers - Turned out to be WAY too tight for my steerer tube ID. :mad:

Canyon/Acros 1-1/4" flat headset cover to replace the plastic i-Lock headset

Wheels Manufacturing 5mm + 10mm 1-1/4" headset spacers

In the end I wrapped 3 strips of paper around the FSA expander, preloaded the bearings, tightened the stem, removed the expander, and replaced it with the original friction-fit top cap. Not the plug-and-play job I was expecting. :(

Here is my latest invention.. it's now available on Kickstarter. If we meet our funding goal, we'll be delivering in June or July. Works for both Schrader and Presta valves.

I almost bought that kit!

BDop DIY wheelset. I built it yesterday, and only gave it a short test ride today.

It feels exactly like I expected it would. A solid training wheelset, at a fantastic price.

Well, in addition to my new frame/fork I had to add some needed parts...

Bontrager RXL stem
PRO Vibe7 bars
Zeus all carbon seatpost
Handlebar tape
A pair of Michelin Pro4's
Gore Ride-On shift cable set

It's all in the picture.....although, it is dirty already! =)

Getting rid of my old bike rack carrier for this one. No longer going to be transporting my carbon bikes by the top tubes...

I bought a 7 speed chain and freewheel cassette for my road hybrid bike, shifting is so crisp and quiet.

It did come out a bit long....on the other hand, it shifts really well! It'll get trimmed...but not until my weekend.

TheClymb had it on sale for $95.98 a couple of days ago. Then they had a 2 day less 20% promo that brought it down to $76.79. Then get cash back of 11% using ActiveJunky (you really have to use this site!!!!) bringing it further down to $63.34. Add 7.98 shipping for a total of $76.32!!!! :)

ARPRINCE--that's world-class shopping! :thumb: I'll check out the links.

BTW, how does it fit? I'm 6' 200 lbs and some XXL stuff doesn't come close to fitting. Bike clothing sizes seem to be all over the map.

Three month wait. Got this the combo in mail other day. Custom carbon fiber Garmin mount that bolt underneath. I think it looks super clean. FYI MCFK stem and 3T Rotundo LTD
