Let us know how that bike mount works out. I have the same case and the arm band for running (gift from wife) and have been considering the bike mount myself. The phone case is super nice. My only gripe is that the backside has openings through the case and dirt/lint will build up inside the case over time. Unless, that is, you get smart like I eventually did and put a piece of packaging tape over the openings.


So far I'm really enjoying the case compared to an otter box case I was using. It still has enough grip and protection. The rain cover is a welcomed bonus. The 'out front' mount is for my indoor bike which sits on the trainer full time and the stem mount is for my primary steed.

I grow my own fur coat.... I find I am comfortable in short sleeves and shorts from 45 degrees up to 85 degrees...I had to ride in the snow on New years as I had to have a ride for the first of the year... it was only 2.5 miles (down to the coffee shop and back with a stop to warm up at the coffee shop).

Is that a chain watcher or something else? Are those usually associated with going compact? I have one on my CX bike, but none of my other bikes.

It looks like a Parlee CF front derailleur bracket.

Yes. Parlee adapter clamp thing. I didn't pay full price BTW.Plus another 15% off for signing up for their email newsletter.

The bike was powder coated and I'm afraid there will be a scar when I remove the Shimano deraileur clamp and slide the derailleur down a few millimeters. This clamp should cover any gouges in the powder coat caused by the existing clamp. The silver Shimano clamp doesn't match the black 105 components anyway.

There are some $20 crabon clamps on ebay but reviews say they are flexy.

Always good when your order starts to arrive. Besides the box of stuff I purchased a new set of wheels for the single speed, and new front wheel for the TT bike.

Just arrived, 10 speed Ultegra and chain.

Saw these Clif bars at Walmart. Couldn't pass up the deal, 12 for $7.

last year Merlin had a deal for those at about $260

I wish they had a deal like that for DA 9000.

I got a full 105 group from Ribble for $311.11 USD about a month after Brexit.

That 5800 deal is great. I had considered that before deciding on Ultegra.

Yes. You can see a loose cable connector off to the right.

I don't know what is going on with prices right now.

All the sites had pretty much stayed together and were as high as $420.

Merlin's prices recently went down while Ribble prices shot up. Merlin has 105 groups for $365 while Ribble has the same group for $485.

$365 is a great price. The cranks alone are $95 in the most common sizes, $75 for the less sought after sizes.

Will likely have a hill / handlebar shifter behind stem that maybe can be forearm shifted. Then maybe bar end shifters. Don't know. I didn't past them as I've had them a long time and that would be off topic.

Purchased a chain cleaner tool and eco-friendly degreaser. Can't wait to give my road bike a great cleaning in the chains!
