got a quad lock stem mount for my iPhone 4s at a lbs for a big discount since it was for an old phone, another joy of owning an old phone.

Zipp 30 Course rim brake wheel set and Vittorrio Corsa graphene 25 mm tires. The 21/25 mm rim expands the tires to 28 mm. About $800 total. Smooth and fast.

For my Synapse. My second spurcycle bell. I tried the RockBros copycat route. It was cheap but there's just no comparison.

I'm curious how they got your weight balanced better on your saddle. I would assume they adjusted several things in your fit. Do you know if it was simply a matter of lowering your seatpost? was your saddle turned a bit to one side prior to fit? Is one leg slightly longer than the other that was causing one side of your pelvis to not sit as level?

Mind = blown. Just came in here to post this!

I just bought the same saddle. Hands down the ugliest saddle I have ever seen on a bike, but it works. Great saddle. Nice purchase :thumb:

Awesome. Looks like a great fit. I can see how your shoulders are much more relaxed.

Seat actually went up a little (1cm), but the big difference was moving it forward by 3cm and removing three spacers under the stem. I feel just as upright, but my quad recruit is higher, calf recruitment lower, and reach much more nature. No real difference between legs except a 0.5mm spacer between the crank and spindle of my right pedal to give more optimal lateral knee displacement during pedal stroke.

Got myself a couple Kask protone helmets! So comfortable!

Actually, this was done in Ontario, Canada. I'm fairly confident that this service is widely available in most major U.S. cities. I was in Piermont, NY yesterday and noticed they had a Guru fit setup.

The best part of the service I enjoyed was motion analysis wherein sensors were attached my body, head-to-toe, and read dynamically while I pedalled, allowing the computer to analyze the full range of motion.

The impact of the new fit is truly night and day. I am not exaggerating - It makes me seriously question how I was able to rode centuries in such a sub-optimal and tangibly less comfortable position.

Good luck!

Needed to renew my plates, the Bike Nerd in me went the vanity route. Was a little surprised this was available. Share the Road logo money goes to supporting bicycle needs in state.

I was looking at these at the beginning of the year, but didn't act when the price was right.


The good sale price finally came around again, coincident with a spending mood.

Scooped these two for a total of $140 (MSRP was $350). Now I dont know which one to keep

I just ordered a couple chains and 3 sets of handlebar tape from Amazon.

I try to keep disposables in stock (sorta speak). I will ready my daily rider with new tires, tape, and chain during the winter. And I may find a project bike or two.
