You know what? Own it. Dress that 7.6 FX up for holidays and leave it there. Nice centerpiece, er, bike!

Received and installed my Hawk Racing BB30.24 bottom bracket. Finally no more creaks! I also made a little video comparing my old bearings to the new ones. I can't believe how well these things spin!

^^ All I hear is rattling sounds on both BBs.

That's the chain. Old BB creaked badly, especially up hills. New BB is dead silent. Neither BB is making noise in the video.

Cool, I didn't realize solving a problem I've been having with my BB is "drinking the kool aid". :foo:

Two things: a chest X-ray to make sure I didn't fracture any ribs and a new front fork for my Trek 520.

During my Monday commute to work, my front tire got stuck in a groove. When I corrected, I slammed the front tire and impaled myself on the top 2X6 of a stockade fence. No fractured ribs, but a couple are bruised badly. I'm going to try to ride gently tomorrow for the first time.

Some cyber Monday wheels from Performance, Mavic Kyserium SE $400 pair.

A bit lighter then the 105/CXP33's I run, same price, plus comes with a set of 25mm Mavic tires.

I was holding off, delaying, hemming, hawing about a lighter set of wheels, then was asked if I would "donate" a spare rear wheel to my nephew for his b-day, whose hand-me-down wheel (on the bike I gave him), finally bit the dust with 3rd broken spoke. Nephew got a mostly new Mavic Open Pro/Ultegra/DB DT14/15 wheel. So an opportunity to buy the Kyseriums.

I've been shopping around for a couple of weeks. A new jacket that is thicker than the windbreaker jacket. Minus 33 midweight wool baselayers, Shimano MW7 SPD riding shoes/boots, Cygolite Hotshot Pro 150, pedals (because pedals plus cleats aren't much more expensive than cleats alone) and a pair of thermal boot liners to provide insulation from the metal on the pedals. This should keep me warm for my 22 mile morning ride to work! The wool items are my xmas gift from my cats :-) And I have some green bar tape on the way to replace the filthy white tape on Synapse!

BM Works Tool capsule for my CX/ winter bike. Easy to put on/take off, easy to get to stuff and I only use 1 bottle in the winter anyway.

Islabikes Beinn 20 Small (green) for my five year old's Christmas present. Haven't unboxed it yet but can't wait. Looking forward to him finally having gears.

Time to retire my old friends, the Sidi Genius 5, at the tender age of 10 years old.

They served me well, but I couldn't pass up the great deal on the Sidi Kaos Air Carbon deal on Competitivecyclist earlier this week. At $150, they're $70 cheaper than my G5's were 10 years ago, not account for inflation. And after a quick spin around the block, they are really an evolutionary leap forward. The G5's feel so mushy in comparison!

Before the weather turned cold, I was riding to work three days a week. I take the train home and it's a short 3 mile ride home. In my previous job I was commuting 16 miles each way four days a week. It's a relatively flat ride.
