I recently picked this frankenbuild up from a friend. It's a cannonale criterium 3.0 made into a city bike/gym runner. I always ride to work out in the mornings and my road bike and clipless pedals was a pain because it's either bring extra shoes or ride normal shoes and slip off carbon pedals if it's wet and bust my shins lol.

This has been converted to a flat bar bike with Bontrager carbon bars, bontrager RL wheels, it's 1x10 with an Apex crankset 50 tooth chainring and a 12-36 cassette using SRAM X9 long cage RD. Schwalbe tires, hayes brakes, 19 lbs ready to roll and it's a blast to shoot to the gym and back or to grab lunch or whatever around town. Ridiculously stiff but a great ride for what it's intended to do.

A couple had this on a ride this weekend, seemed really awesome. I've been looking for a good bluetooth headphone solution, and the extra comm link seems great.

Adamo Century saddle for my tri bike. It came with the stock Cannondale saddle which is not bad, but just a bit too prominent nose poking its way just a bit more into the junk than desirable. Adamo certainly does away with any problems associated with a prominent saddle nose.
Discontinued model, so they're cheap now (paid less than half what the linked website below wants for them)
We will see if I like it. Flat is usually good for me. Wide is not always.

I thought it looked cool but when I showed it to my missus she said that it looks girly so I don't know if I want to put it on my bike anymore. I thought it would go well with my black and white crochet gloves...

Tape's here. Not too bad in the end.

GuitarWizard 02-23-16 10:01 PM

Let's see....in the past week...

Full Dura Ace 9000 mech groupset
Hed Belgium C2 clincher wheels w/ Chris King hubs, DT Rev 14/17 spokes, brass nipples
Enough tools to almost open a bike shop (figured it was finally time to invest in some decent tools)
3T Ergonova Pro bars (alloy of course)
Thomson Masterpiece post
Garmin Vector 2 pedals
Ridley Fenix SL frame/fork
11 speed hub for my Easton EA90 SLX's
Specialized Toupe Pro 143mm seat
Garmin speed sensor for my Edge 810
Vittoria Rubino Pro III tires (on sale) and latex tubes
And a bunch of other crap to finish up the build....Deda bar tape, Jagwire inline barrel adjusters, etc.

Oh and a Feedback Classic stand. This all started last week with "Hmmmm, I kinda want a power meter", and morphed a bit.

Ordered a pair of Shimano Saint MX80 pedals. If I like them I may buy another pair.

EDIT: The pedals arrived today. Not too shabby for $51.27 shipped from Price Point.

Is the bike ordered or are you way ahead of the curve?

Velowurks pump, pretty nice . I would love the Silica pump but it's out of my budget so this will do. Also picked up a set of Park Tool Fourth Hand cable pliers. Can't wait to us them.

Yeah I ordered a new bike (CAAD12 Ultegra non-disc) and won't get it until June. Hopefully my LBS can get it prior to that month.
