Garmin 530. My 3 year old Garmin 520 reports incorrect climb numbers and sometimes resets itself during the ride. I tried to do the factory reset and now it is stuck on the Garmin Logo whenever I try to power it up. I hope 530 will be more reliable.

Got my gear ratio down to 20!!
 
I wanted to reduce my gear ratio from 24 to 20 to help my hill climbs.
So time to buy a replacement freewheel with a nice low 34 tooth ring. Fitted it and got a problem with the derailleur clashing with the large gear.
I thought I would need to replace the rear changer but I found this great small hanger extender! Problem solved!

All fitted and running smoothly!

used my Strava Le Col coupon and picked up a cycling cap, some winter gloves, and a sport jersey. the jersey is slightly too tight for me but i'm also at my highest weight ever (up 20lbs from the summer, due to lifestyle change) so i'll fit into that jersey easily for the spring season. it's my goal.

I just picked up a set of Zipp 303 Firecrest wheels with Chris King hubs for my R3. Still need to get new tires and brake pads before they go on the bike, but I found the wheels (used) at my local shop and I think I got a solid deal on them.

My fall project is a Felt FR1. Have most of the DA stuff on hand. I've ridden the Ergonova bar for years, but it is no longer made. So I just picked up a new 3T Superergo bar and an Apto stem.

Favero Assioma power meter pedals. Do I actually need them? No. Am I fast enough for them to matter? Obviously no? But do I like playing with data? Yes!

I bought these last year and quite honestly it has changed the way I ride. No more slacking on the flats or downhills gotta keep the power up :)

I did my first ride on them this morning. The data is fascinating - I'm looking forward to using it to improve my training. On one of my usual loops, I was a little surprised in some places where my power was higher and a few others where it dropped. It's going to be a fun toy / tool.

Old track parts
 
6 Attachment(s)
For 50's Dutch track frame: Bayliss Wiley hubs and BB, Lyotard pedals, Wienmann rims, integrated steel bar and stem, "unused" crankset and rear sprocket. Bought as a box of "odd stuff"; some spare pedals and one odd part that I am not familiar with: a miniature "turnbuckle". No idea what it is for. Is anyone familiar with this on a '40s/'50s track bike?

Swapping cassettes.

Picked up a new rain jacket, as I'm hoping to do a lot more riding outside this fall/winter than I've done in the past. I wear a men's large typically, but went XL on this and I think that was the right decision - it's still snug.

A rain jacket rather than wind breaker, because winter is coming... Today got very soggy and my old Gore jacket is about two sizes too big.

Castelli Emergency Rain Jacket.
