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

Just bought 2 New Jerseys from Craft online cheap

finally bought some Tektro long reach brakes, after thinking about it for years. Now I can put some modern(ish) wheels on my best vintage frame.

Spent some money on my drivetrain. New chainrings, cassette and chain. Really smoothed out the shifting, it wasnít horrible and maybe had some life left but it was money well spent. I also picked up a Castelli Espresso 4 jacket on clearance almost one third the regular price. Recently bought an Alpha ROS jacket also. I have plenty of warm weather gear and now Iím almost set with winter warm gear.

Scooped up the last set of these this morning on Amazon. These will be mounted on my new Trek 920 I purchased scheduled to be arriving at my LBS 1 May. :)

Huh, those are a little more expensive but those pins look like they'd provide quite a bit more grip than the platform side of my A530s. Interesting, wish I would have known about them a couple months ago.

I believe they come with two sets of pins, short and long. I will post up more after install. And now the wait....

Called my local Trek store, found a decent pair of Foray MTB cycling shoes. So I scooped them up, really not super high dollar, but for my needs I think they will be fine. Big hands, big feet, must be a clown. :lol: what can I say? I have a narrow foot and they fit perfect. My new Italian designed, Chinese made loafers.

Yay, someone I can trade shoes with!

A 1978 Trek 930 frame set, and a S&S machine works hard case.

Picked up a pair of black Specialized Audax Wide shoes in preparation for a 300k ride next weekend.


I originally wanted to get a pair of Torch 2.0 Wide shoes but the authorized Specialized dealer that I visited did not have the wide version in stock, but I noticed the Audax shoes on the shelf and gave them a try. They were more expensive than the Torch 2.0 but felt like a good fit, giving my toes plenty of room for comfort while still feeling secure around the ankles.

I've seen a few reviews on them, but very few real world reviews.. so curious if it lives up to the hype. You should post a review for all of us lol

2 gallon garden sprayer from Home Depot to hose off the bike -

And an inexpensive, but supposedly individually ISO-tested (they include a certificate with test results), torque wrench from Amazon -
