Still waiting for the wheels, crankset and pedals to arrive, but the saddle for the sandbagger I'm putting together has arrived. I'm calling it a sandbagger because I'm hoping it will look to weigh about four pounds heavier than it actually is.

Less than half the weight of a Brooks B17.

Picked up a bunch of Rapha winter jerseys and toughest and 3/4 short. Today, picked up a new ENVE 3.4 SES disc wheelset- older design (not tubeless) at a great discount.

Stocked up on Vittoria Rubino Speed G+ tires for the impending spring riding season.

Also got a pair of GripGrab Racethermo X shoe covers for gravel. The road version Racethermo (non X) are excellent and so I decided to invest in the X version for MTB/gravel.

Wolftooth Roadlink and 11-36 cassette to make my CX bike double as a gravel bike

1:1 ratio is very appreciated on the hills of VT

Just shoes, and this jersey. Fits well for me.

Good. I love Mavic clothing, but it definitely fits differently(runs smaller than most brands).

On that note.. all of the web retailers have the wrong size charts (at least for men's clothing) for Mavic clothing if that's your issue.
Below is shop.mavic.com 's size chart.. followed by Comp Cyclist (and it's the same at CC as it is at STP).. you'll note that the retailers charts are all off on their sizing labels by one column

I don't have a problem with Mavic clothing(or the way it is sized), but it runs a little smaller than most brands I've tried over the past 35 years. First time buyers might not be aware of this.

I'm glad you got the size you needed.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply it was your problem.. more to point out that anyone who buys their stuff off of websites that have this wrong size chart are going to be disappointed and end up with a piece of clothing that's too small by one size. I'm in the habit of always checking manufacturer website size charts rather than relying on web-tailers charts.

OTOH, my take on the clothing makers that size "smaller" than others, is due more to them offering more fine-tuned sizing than other clothing companies, but that they all start at Size Small (or even XS). Castelli is also known for sizing "small".. but I think if you compare a size "S" Castelli jersey on their size chart to eg. a Pearl Izumi size "S", you'll find they're about the same for chest measurement. However, by the time you get to L and XL sizes, they're different by at least a full size. Castelli goes up in real sizing (ie. inches or cms) in smaller increments for each tier than does PI.

50% off for $100. I'm very impressed with fit, quality, functionality, looks.

Great piece of kit. Probably the best, most versatile, piece in my wardrobe. Wind block on the front and wool in the back. I probably wore it 3 or 4 times before I realized it also has hand pockets!

Versatile indeed, functional, and very understated. After wearing this piece I put my 2 other jerseys on eBay and purchased varying base layers instead: short sleeve, long sleeve, sleeveless. And with only the Rapha turtleneck it's quite warm at 40f once your body warms up.

Latest purchase, Pearl Izumi Elite Escape Bib Bike Shorts - Men's - $70 at REI - 50% off
Great deal if anyone is looking for bibs, https://www.rei.com/product/111847/p...SABEgJQYvD_BwE

Just ordered an Assos shell jacket at about 50% off from Competitive Cyclist.

New shift levers. I broke my left lever crashing Sunday... they don't make my model anymore for a single replacement, so naturally I had to upgrade both to the latest. And a new FD, too; for compatibility. Not exactly a fun purchase; and kinda pricey as I needed my bike for a race this weekend & didn't have time to source 2nd hand
But sometimes that's how it goes

Computer mount specifically made for Pro Vibe Aero Bars and Pro Vibe stem. Made by K-Edge but distributed through Shimano/Pro. Hopefully it'll be here in a couple of days.
