Dang should have said something, I have a brand new one in the box that I would sell you on the cheap. I would ship it next day for free :/

What did you not like about it? Thanks for the offer but I'll hang on to my current REI order.. I kinda like their 1yr 100% satisfaction guaranteed policy.

It'll be another week or so. I can't wait to see the finished bike.

How to you like the Craft pieces? I bought the following Craft pieces lately and have been pleasantly surprised with how comfortable they are.

Brooks Pro saddle. It's already surpassed my C17 and is threatening to surpass the C15

Ordered from the UK and still waiting for delivery. I'll let you know.

I've two Craft summer mesh base layers and have become a big fan of the company's products.

Please tell me about that jacket. What model is it? What do you like about it specifically? Those bibs look all business, a serious piece of equipment.

Where do you live? I'm in Georgia and it doesn't get seriously cold except for the dark days of Jan and Feb.

Just in time for winter in the Northeast. Tacx Neo Smart. Traded in my KK R&R trainer for this baby. Late to the party but I'm about to check out the world of Zwift.

Race day jacket and a Puro jersey.

I picked up a set/pair of T2 Bontrager 700X25 tires today (about $25 each).

They're for a bike I call my daily rider... but I don't ride it in foul/winter weather. I've gathered all new consumables for it... although the chain doesn't show any wear... so I won't be replacing it. But new tires, brake pads, and handlebar tape on my scrubbed spotlessly clean bike and it will wait for the weather to break... in the spring.

Meanwhile... I've already switched to my rain/winter bike.

Sounds fun, I like the maintenance part almost as much as the riding part, wish I had my rain bike still.:thumb:

I also love wrenching. I call wrenching my hobby within my (cycling) hobby. I'll have my daily rider back to new condition before the holidays. And by then or shortly after.... I should find a Craigslist "project bike".

I always try to find a bike I'd like to own anyway. Then I'll restore it over the cold winter. I keep a vintage steel bike... and I like the one I have now. But the right restored project bike... could cause a rotation. Either way... come spring or early summer I'll sell one bicycle to be back to "N" (rule 12).

I am not a flipper and I don't actually profit. But I think my efforts probability covers all my bicycle and parts costs.

Just picked these up. Wow, they were a pretty penny, but I haven't bought shoes in probably 8 years or so (once you find a pair you like, you stick with them!). Hope these are a good investment! Haven't had a chance to ride with them yet, but the color is so badass!

God, I love those shoes. So jealous.

birru 11-30-16 09:06 PM

More winter goodies! Gore Phantom 2.0 Windstopper Jacket, which I got on sale for $85, and a Sugoi Winter Cycling Hat. I'm impressed with the jacket. It feels great, and it seems really well made. The color also looks ten times better in person.

Had my eye out for this 2014 7.6 FX for almost a year now:

http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w...psextnxyfg.jpg

http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps13zmieym.jpg

In this economy, though, the cashflow just didn't seem to want to work out. But when one of the guys at the local dealer called me up this morning to tell me that they were hit with a surprise December sale, and that my 7.6 is now at 25% off, I knew I had to go see a friend, and he came through like a champ. He knows I'm good for it, though; we used to be coworkers, and now I do a lot of freelance work for the same company. :thumb:

^^ I wouldn't serve that for breakfast,lunch or dinner if I were you. Just sayin' :D

franswa 12-01-16 08:19 AM

^^Yeah, very interesting location choice to photograph a bike. This is America, any garage door will suffice.
