last nite installed another cheap wired computer. now all 3 bikes have cheap computers. 2 wired, 1 wireless. don't need lots of details, for me the simpler the better. mostly I like to know how many miles I have left before I get home. 1 has a thermometer & that was useful but it's not a must-have

Got this to keep in the saddlebag so I can take the wheels of my Vybe D7 off in case of a flat (it didn't come with quick-release hubs) and adjust saddle position if need be:

I guess I lucked out finding this at a local hardware store: it's lighter than your "standard" adjustable wrench of even a shorter size (it's even lighter than my SuperB multitool!) Also, the end of the race on which the adjustable side runs is rounded off, as opposed to the sharp edge of a standard wrench, which should prevent it from chafing its way out of the bag or damaging the spare tube:

Will do.
I plan on getting the "dual" once it is made available for Uletegra cranks. My left leg is significantly weaker than my right due to multiple injuries/surgeries.

Looks like a Di2 junction box.

$140???? My Gawd!

I'm buying my own tools too. I already have BB30 tools to replace bearings on my bike as well hub bearings. I think the cassette tools was one of the first ones I had years ago.

Been wanting to own an Argon Gallium Pro for a long while, yet the frame alone is so damn expensive.

Found this gem on Ebay last week for a sick deal.

Found this gem on Ebay last week, and jumped on it right away.

2014 Argon 18 Gallium Pro (new) If I tell you how much I got it for, you'll think I'm lying. :D

This frame made my supersiX felt like a steel bike.

Go ahead and lie to us.

Brand new from Craigslist. A guy was remodeling a house he just bought and was selling off all his stuff. Was originally purchased from Merlin cycle. Still in the shipping box.

Retrotec Funduro. I know, not a road bike, but it is a cycling related purchase.

If money were not an issue, I would have them on all of my bikes. Currently only have the hubs laced up to some Stan's on my mountain bike. Love the quality of their stuff.
