Black Friday free upgrade?

sirkoondog 11-30-15 08:08 AM

Got the wife a Cervelo R2 105 5800 size 48 at closeout price. (White frame). Ordered Ultegra Di2 upgrade on Merlin and new ROL SL wheelset for the bike. Gonna be dope. :)

I picked up a Garmin Edge 500 with speed/cadence sensor and HR monitor for $200 over the weekend. I wanted something other than my phone to track my rides and was not expensive.

uh oh
I recently purchased an O2 rain jacket as a back up for the days I dont have my nicer rain coat and toe covers. I also bought for my own christmas present Ortlieb Hi Vis Panniers plus a Cygolite 550 for commuting.

i think i have a bike commuting problem...

although i really would like to get one of these to upgrade my road bike

FYI, O'Reilly's auto parts carries Xtra-seal cold vulcanizing fluid, which is the good stuff, in one ounce tubes, for $2.50, or 8 ounce cans for $8. One ounce is the equivalent of SIX of the tiny tubes that come in Rema and similar patch kits.

You don't need any glue, all you need is glueless patches, and forever never worry about dried glue

I hate that the patch kits are less expensive than the cold vulcanizing tubes of cement.

Plus, the smallest individually available tube is 5gm, but I prefer the smaller 3gm tubes.

I just bought 6 park tools patch kits for 2.30 each on eBay just for the glue.

A new set of Durano DD's just came in for me. 25mm, replacing a set of 7.5k+mile Luganos that came stock on my road bike. Very, very excited.

I had a bit of fun over the holidays.

Reflective Giro Empires:

POC DO Blades...

Some pink POC Raceday gloves to match the pink helmet, these gloves are my favorite, no padding, super comfy, and easy on/off.

Some new kits...

New chain for the fixed gear...

Seems the only thing I didn't buy was what I needed, new tires.

MakiNn 12-02-15 04:44 PM

Picked some sram BB bearings for when I get my bike back from the paint shop. Might as well go through most of it with some new parts.
