Got a set of Stans Alpha 340 rims w/ 3.30 rti hubs.

I spent a few minutes pricing a similar wheel build on bikehubstore. Got a price (if I built them myself) and weight. Wandered over to eBay, saw this wheelset with better hubs and bladed spokes at a fair price. I threw out a low ball offer and now they are in my garage.

lol what stand? The furniture is just some cheap ass stuff. The tv is a cheap 32inch RCA TV

The white stand is some random 10$ tablet holder of aliexpress which does his job really well

This is actually my indoor setup at work !

2 Panaracer gravelking tires, Cinelli bar tape, a chain, and Shimano pedals arrived in the mail today. Phone is giving me issues, or there would be pics. It's a good end to a day.

I'm talking about the thing that the tablet holder is attached to - way back when, I worked at a store that sold a lot of Sony stuff, so seeing it was a reminder.

My wife wanted to buy me some bike stuff for Christmas, and asked me for my Amazon password. So I went into Amazon and added the Light & Motion Vis 180 Pro tail light to the shopping cart, then logged back out.

Later on in the day I got an email from Amazon confirming a purchase. That tail light was in it, and then she'd just picked the next five bike things I had on my wishlist and ordered them along with it. It was mostly smallish things like a bag of electrolyte mix, a five-pack of compression socks, etc. I'll pretend that I'm surprised on Christmas. :-)

Two tubular rims for tire stretching- $5 ea

Dave Cutter 12-21-17 01:19 AM

I took advantage of the holiday sales on-line and at the LBS. I got a couple sets of continental super sport bicycle tires (like $12 a tire), a couple lightweight tubes for one of the bikes, that I got the tires for, and for my gravel grinder (that didn't need tires) a heavy weight bicycle rack (110 pound carry limit) suitable for disc brakes.

Wow, where. I just ordered one for my wife at 120, which is not bad either.

What colour visor comes by default?

SethAZ 12-22-17 04:05 AM

Looks like the dark gray comes with that one, as it did with mine (I got a red one). I purchased the clear visor separately for night rides.

Any idea how that light compares with the Cygolite 150?

Yeah. It's about $60 more. :D

I've never used either, so your guess is as good as mine. The L&M looks really good, though. The one I'm using for all my night rides right now is a $15 cheapo. It's worked so far, but I don't like it. I'm still alive, though, so there's that.

Power meter pedal. I bought single side, maybe I'll upgrade to duos later. These things are expensive.

That is so pretty! I am looking for a nice steel bike.

Ordered a few sets of Horst spikes for my GF and I. Pretty cool that the best toe spikes in CX are made a few miles from us. only went for the stainless ones. Ti is blingy but not necessary for us.
