Planet X
 
Bought some jerseys from Planet X mine favorite two I wear the most has seen much use commuting/ riding this year. I wanted a Me brighter ones and some warmer ones for the fall. They had some deals. Thought I had figured out my size but they are too tight. I wish they would consistently provide size charts for their merchandise. I don't think I will any more from them. 😕

I picked up a pair of Oakley Jawbreakers last weekend. They're very nice, FWIW.

Scored a deal on some like-new Ultegra pedals to replace my beat up Lookies.

Laurido92 08-22-16 09:06 PM

Picked up some Forte Corsa2 Carbon road pedals to replace my Shimano PD-R540 pedals. Big difference in weight and only 6g heavier and $50 cheaper than the Ultegra pedals . Let's see how they perform and hold up.

Got a great deal on some CycleOps Rollers today on CL... WAY more quiet than the Minoura i got last year and really close to the ground to make getting on and off easier. Now if i could only get on/off without a wall i'd really be happy. Any tips?

I picked up a pair of Maui Jim River Jetty glasses. I really like them. Nice and light with plenty of airflow to prevent fogging.

A Selle Italia SLS Carbonio saddle...only one ride so no useful info but it felt good...replacing a 20 plus year old saddle I found in my "box o stuff" which is still pretty nice.
Pair of LG bibs...very nice but they run small compared to my Volers.
Took advantage of some great discounts at Nashbar.

lever placement is too high, and red tape rarely looks good. Black never looks bad, and white looks great if you can keep it clean.

Those bars look terrible, but if they work for you...

Jean3n16 08-28-16 04:25 PM

went to goodwill and found a air pump ( no hose though so i need to hit up Home Depot) and then found 1 single toe strap. $3 total.

Just ordered Vredstein tubulars from PBK 3 for $55.

They also have Vredstein Duocomp clinchers 23mm for ~$17- these are good all around tires that wear like crazy.

thanks .... I will most probably replace the saddle with a black Brooks C17 Cambium Carved (I have one fitted to my Giant TCR and it's superb), and will change the bar tape to black. I will see how the lever placement feels and if they need re-positioning, my LBS will sort it when he services the bike

I have white tape fitted on my Giant TCR (bought the bike with the white tape), and will replace it with black when it needs replacement (it's dirty and impossible to clean)

looking at the photo, I think that the saddle height will be dropped by approx 2 inches but I'm guessing and will only know once I have the bike next week ... (I have short legs)

The tyres are fairly new, (Conti 4 seasons) but when they need replacing I will fit Schwalbe Durano Plus to see me through winter (hopefully with no punctures) and in spring I will get Conti Grand Prix 4000 sII (I have these on my Giant TCR and am well impressed)

Well a lot. Some XT M8000 SPD pedals for my gravel, Dakine pack for commuting, Pro bike CO2 inflator to replace my failed Lezyne, Lezyne SV10 multitool, Wheels Manufacturing derailleur hanger, and some socks.
