1. You are ripped!

3. Shoes look great.

Thanks! I MAY have flexed the calves a bit for the pic. :D

Shoes are fantastic, especially for the price, although it has only been trainer rides so far. More snug, yet roomier than my old Bontrager RL's, if that makes any sense? And of course the BOA fasteners are a quantum leap forward.

Just tell people you were feeling a bit more tri than bike, so that explains the socks.

I'm 6'4, 34 waist, 41 chest, 210#
I'm about 15-20 pounds over weight at 210 and I bought a large. It is tight, but once I slim out a bit it will be perfect.

I've been on a bit of a buying spree. Latest were these:

I'm doing a dirt drop conversion for my single speed mountain bike. It's going to be both awesome and awful!

I also ordered an Arione saddle to replace my specialized Romin. Other people like the Romin a lot, but the nose of the saddle is just too wide for me.

Really digging the slate blue with white trim decor.

What color/brand paint is that? Do you have the color codes?

retail is $150, but my builder got a little better than that because he frequently does business with them.

Carbon-Cycle has a similar hoop for $163, but the Workswell hoop is slightly wider internally. I've also read that C-C's hoop is painted matte black, not actual matte clear UD carbon.

I have a set of Workswell 38mm hoops (25mm wide), and couldn't be more pleased with them after 5k miles.
