Yeah I was not happy. Wasnt even an all white paint job. Most the frame was already white. He just had to paint a 3 inch section on the brow of the frame and the nose piece that was orange originally. Super simple job. This is why I made a separate thread to tell others about my experience while dealing with dr. Chop shop. Awful experience. The paint job is very sub par also. I photoshopped out a couple parts that have already chipped by the lens. Thought about reaching out to him but to be honest I'm just glad to have them back in my hands. It got to the point where I didnt think I'd ever get them back.

The worst part is now 7 months later, they offer an all white frame!!!! FML!!

Yesterday I nabbed:
a pair of Bontrager Aeolus 3's with dt hubs, a Bontrager Affinity carbon saddle, and a Bontrager xxx carbon stem...
Grand total, $775!!!
The wheel set was slightly used, but I still feel like I did pretty good ��

Long ride coming up, & thought a top tube bag might be good.

Ordered this- kind of hideous but it's an experiment & it's $5.00.

All tt bags are hideous. I built a great titanium bike for my wife, and I cry when I see her TT bag.

Bikewagon via eBay. Waited for a eBay sale to come around. $238 after the 15 percent coupon. Without the coupon code, I found bikediscount.de to be the cheapest.

The previous gen of Fizik shoes had very high arches. Does this also have that issue?

I don't own them, but I've tried them on - no, the arches in the current Fizik aren't as high as the ones that I'd tried on a few years ago (which made my foot rock like a teeter-totter).

I'm not sure. Doesn't bother me. But then my feet aren't too picky.

I have those on my commuter bike, and I like them. I inflate them to about 40 or 50 psi.

This weekend's mail brought a cap, some gloves, and a phone mount. The gloves are labeled XL, but they're hard to put on.

The color is "hawaiian punch"

Not much for color matching, but this may be a new low for me.

sometimes the smallest parts are the ones that bring a project to a stopping point.

Haha, now I realize what I just said (or implied). But the only things that are extra large are my hands, feet, and head. Promise. :lol:
