Have a couple of GP5000s 28c on the way from wiggle. 28 was a bit tight for gp4000 but I think the 5000 is a bit narrower. I hope.

Also got a couple of cateye kinetic rear lights because mine keep disappearing to the kids bikes, Some Fizik tempo bar tape and lezyne tyre levers (levers are worse than socks for vanishing aren't they?).


Wow, 10 days for in stock items to ship from PBK. Getting a "we're sorry" email every three days. Hmmmm.

Almost out of Chamois Butt'r. Thought I'd try this

Flats at home before or after are the best places for flats.

Inner tubes. Got a flat right as I was rolling in to my driveway from a ride. Could not have happened in a better place I guess.

Protein powder.

Trying to get back into the post ride shake routine. Means I don't have the munchies 4 hours after a ride.

And just like that, it's toe cover season in MN -

Just bought some Shimano PD-ES600 pedals and pair of bib shorts.

I bought a N+1 over the weekend that I should get in a few weeks. I managed to find one that was still available through special orders at a nearby Giant store. Not sure how's the market in your respective areas, but everything is either sold-out here or reserved in advance until September - October 2021. There is almost nothing available on the used market neither.

It is a huge drop from my other bike in terms of material and components, but I wanted a second bike I could use as my daily ride, winter/spring beater and gravel road / beaten paths.

Giant Revolt 2 2021 (Alloy frame / CF forks / Shimano Sora Groupset)

New Met Manta MIPS helmet. I've liked my previous gen Manta, and the new one matches the new bike. :thumb:

Even though I just received enough toilet paper tires for the year *knock on wood*, I decided that it might be a good idea to hoard whatever I can get my hands on have more on hand just in case, so I ordered some Pirelli P Zero Race TLRs -

new chainrings, chainring bolts, and RD jockey wheels for my 15-year-old Cannondale Synapse.

(Also installed a new cassette and chain at the same time, but those were "NOS" that had been sitting in my closet for the past year.)

Where did you buy it? Every major site that I came across with Trenta and Rivale helmets wont ship to the US.

I'd like to know too. I have an older MET Rivale, maybe 3-4yrs old and its one of the most comfortable, best fitting helmets I've had.

NoWhammies 03-11-21 12:53 PM

WhyFi Great. Looking forward to reading the view of how these tyres perform.

Ha. I was, of course, mildly tempted to mount them when they arrived this morning, but I just mounted the Power Roads less than a week ago - I'm going to try to hold off until the rear tire is worn or shot, which could mean late summer, depending.

UK site. Had to pay extra for shipping, but it still came out cheaper than msrp, and they were the only ones that had the size/colorway I wanted and ship to the US.

Italian, actually. I've gotten my last couple batches of tires from Lordgun.

FWIW, I order my last set on Monday, they shipped on Tuesday and arrived today. That makes me feel a little better about paying 25 bucks for shipping. :D

Huh. This is what I have gotten from lordgun and just got it again- No shipping to the US. Sucks because I would for sure give MET a try.

It looks like some models/listings are tripping the shipping restriction while others aren't. None of the Menta seem to be restricted.

Wow- good find.

The Trenta 2021 wont ship, the Rivale old version wont ship, but the Rivale 2021 will ship in both MIPS and non-MIPS. And the Manta will clearly ship.
Odd error on their part.
