Cane Creek 110 headsets are just as good without the drama.

what "drama"?

I bought a pair of Open Pave tires for my 92 Paramount, but I won't be in the US to pick them up until May.

Sure, but this drama you speak of, the KING logo on the headset, I see that a sign of quality. Doesn't matter if there are more discreet headsets out there, the KING looks really nice. Sometimes, you know, it is all about that bling factor.

I ordered some accessories (For a Gravel bike I bought last month). Been trying to decide how I wanted to do saddle bags. A decision I've never fully committed to because all my bikes were previously the same size tire. The bigger (gravel) tires require a 700 X 35-43 tube.

Now the gravel (rain/snow/play) bike has it's own bag. My daily rider has it's own fully stocked bag. And I have another small fully stocked bag to float among the other bikes.

So... New is the Gravel Grinder saddle bag, with it's own CO2 inflator (new), and it's own size tubes (also new). Then Since the bike is green with orange trim... (and the saddle bag is orange)... I ordered some (new) Gatorade bottles too.

It's a Performance Bike exclusive. It is an Access (now a Performance brand I believe) Old Turnpike. There is a couple threads on the forum about it. It's a Gravel Bike. I don't really have much gravel available to me. But I do think I will get some use out of it as more of a winter bike.

Most recent purchase: a 46T chain wheel.
Before that, a set of Power Grip pedals and straps...
...to go with a TCX I got a few moments before.

Good choice. Hope you got the green ones.

I just bought two pairs of the Arundel stainless steel water bottle cages to go with the Bottecchia and the Master.

As soon as I install them I will post pics.

I like the look of the Arundel cages. I have the Arundel Mandibles in my C59 and C60 and on my wife's Trek Madone. Those cages have a tenacious grip!

$122 for VoS stage race

I'm also going to purchase a rear carbon clincher and an Evade helmet this month. After this month I have a financial goal of reducing my cycling related expenditures to consumables/repairs only for the next 6 months.

Fizik R5B shoes. First ride on the trainer today. Fit well and comfortable, but I think I need to reposition the cleats.

Had my eye on those as well. The Fizik shoes look amazing! Ending up going with Giro, but I'm sure you're happy.

Isn't that the point? :)
Gotta get em while you can, since they're discontinued :(

SpeshulEd 02-06-17 08:46 AM

I don't think I've ever spent this much on shoes before, but they're purple, so who cares!

Not a problem. Just define all new expenditures as consumables. :thumb:

Found a good deal on a practically NOS cyclocross frameset. I probably won't get to do much racing next fall with my kids both playing soccer, but I needed a bike for levees and fire roads.

A few thoughts:
1. You are ripped!
2. Nice shave job.
3. Shoes look great.
4. Who cares about the socks. Own it!
