Silca Hiro for my Pista, since I got tired of struggling with pulling the adapter of the valve.

And wall hangers for some of my bikes. Relatively easy to hang the bikes and taking them off.

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

Nice little collection of Jordans there.

They're used: less than 500 miles. From a guy who's a really good MTB racer who thought he would get into road racing but it didn't suit him.

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.

STP,
I picked this one from Brands
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=438882

when they had them 40% off in an XL, if I recall. I am 212lbs, 38" - 39" waist and it fit perfectly. Pearl Izumi tends to fit like US sizing. Unless from last year to this they changed the sizing, you should be fine. It was a great jacket for riding in Jan and Feb.


My most recent purchases were:

LG IceFit Jersey for $50 in Red
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=438874

and a Pearl Izumi Elite Jersey $55
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=438873
Santini Play Jersey $50
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=438875
And a Cannondale Classic Jersey $30
http://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=438876

Got to be ready now that the warmer weather is coming. So I got it all covered, a Canadian, an Asian, an Italian and an American. Got to spread the wealth to all the cycling countries :) .

Just ordered few thing on winter clearance sale woohoo. I love buying things half off hahaha.
-Pearl Izumi Crew Hoodie
-Castelli Trasparente Due Wind long sleeve jersey
-Pearl Izumi Ultra Thermal Long sleeve top
And some Oakley two face Lin Dan sunglasses.

MagicHour 03-13-15 02:47 PM

Just sent this one back - nice, simple looking jersey, but unfortunately fit me like a belly shirt, with hockey jersey sleeves - not a good look:lol:. I usually fit well in Cannondale stuff but not this time. Hope you have better luck than I did!

Frank,

Thanks for the links and tips. I'm about your waist size, but losing weight as I get fit. I'll probably be a 36" waist when done. I ordered an XXL Gore jacket from Amazon and it was like a sausage casing @ 210 lbs, so returned it.

bought some new lube. switching from finish line teflon dry lube to this stuff because i bought a bottle and it was thick and milky and awesome for my chain, then i bought a big bottle and its like they filled it 2/3rds of the way with solvent and it takes forever to dry. when i wipe of the excess off my chain, ive basically already wiped most of the lube off. hope this stuff sticks to the chain better

Just bought me a nice kask helmet that was listed for $200 and end up paying only $ 115 I love it..

Long Tom 03-14-15 01:05 AM

I bought a buddy a Serfas Thunderbolt taillight as a gift for his new bike. He's so frugal, he'd never buy a $45 tail light. But it might save his life! So, good gift I think. We did 40 hard miles today, him on his new fancypants bike....

Dunbar 03-14-15 01:23 AM

Zipp 404 FC's ordered for the Cervelo. Will probably run them sans Zipp decals. Deal too good to pass up.

Nice, mind if I ask where you ordered them from and what you paid?

jwalther 03-14-15 08:01 AM

New Jagwire cable set and Boyd Altamonts.

What is it with the American culture that thinks asking people what they paid for something is OK?

It's a rude question no matter how you ask.

Really?? When someone posts on a forum "your latest cycling purchase" and states "deal too good to pass up" what do people expect? Perhaps, I've been looking to get a set of those exact same rims.

Get a life, loser. How about you remove your seat post from your backside and lighten up.

bmcphx 03-14-15 08:22 AM

So anger and name-calling is your go to response?

Is an inappropriate question in my opinion.

In your case, yes. I feel my response was appropriate. And in my 1st sentence feel I addressed your "opinion" adequately.
