Berk Dila saddle, around 100 or so grams for the padded oval rails all carbon version. VERY comfortable ride for the chip seal rough roads I ride. It is similar in design to other "power" saddles, shorter nose and wider at the rear (160mm)

Just took my new set of Race Aero Wides for their first spin this morning. Extremely pleased (though that's compared to the unbranded stock wheels they're replacing, so the bar was pretty low I suppose...)

I had a wheelset built by my local bike shop. HED Belgium Plus rims, White Industries hubs, Sapim CX-ray spokes. 24/28 in 2x pattern. Tubeless with Schwalbe Pro One tires. I wanted bombproof wheels because I ride on a lot of sketchy pavement and gravel roads.

These wheels are about 0.5 pounds lighter than my Bontrager Race wheels with Gatorskins tires.

When I first rode on them, I didn't feel much difference but as my ride progressed, I noticed I was two gears higher than normal yet pedalling along with no troubles. I've not noticed a big difference(if any) while climbing but on the flats I can just hammer along. It's great!

A new side-loading light (30 grams) water bottle cage, and a bicycle computer. I bought a Craigslist 2015 CAAD 10 a couple days ago... and it needed both..
It really is like new (seller said 21 miles on it). I couldn't have afforded it new.

Jandd Briar rack trunk bag. It's the tallest I can put on my bike that fits under the seat. Very simple bag, nicely structured, and I think it will hold what I want it to hold. It looks pretty good on my bike, much better than the sagging, way too wide for my taste 'Roswheel' from Amazon.

IGS618 computer for $119.00. More whiz bang wow features than I will ever need. Once I figure it out old Garmin 500 is going to one of the grandkids.

noodle soup 06-17-18 08:47 AM

Summer aero jersey...Sportful Bodyfit Pro.

I think I've put in enough miles this year to actually pull off something like this :lol:

Jadesfire 06-17-18 02:05 PM
And a Craft base layer.

A new bike for my 13 year old as he has outgrown his other bikes. A rather nice 1/2 suspension Carrera Vengance Limited Edition alloy daily rider. Equipped with Shimano groupset and Shimano M445 Hydraulic Disc Brakes. 160 so I am well pleased with this as they are going for over 200 in the UK. Also came with a free bike computer!

zacster 06-18-18 02:08 PM Just bought this stand, delivered today. I'm hoping it helps me in maintaining the various bikes in my house. I just did a cleaning of two bikes without it and it was just a PITA. Maybe I'll clean more often.

Two purchases this weekend: (1) Bontrager Aeolus 5 carbon clinchers; and (2) Specialized SWorks shoes.

Needed some new chain lube (FinishLine ceramic dry), so of course I had to pad out my wiggle order for the free shipping.

My Vittoria Voyager Hypers for the commuter arrived today too.
