Just got an Garmin 130, very happy with it. Previously I was using a Sigma bike computer and Strava on my phone. Now I have both in one device.

Post Mount for Cygolite Hotshot

Picked up some new tubeless tires (Vitoria Rubino Pro TLR). One of the things I donít like about tubeless (besides the mess and hassle of mounting) is the limited selection of tires.

Iíve been running the newest Schwalbe Pro Oneís but the rear was almost shot after 800 miles.

I run the clincher version of these on my BMC and really like them so I figured Iíd give the tubeless version a shot. They werenít too bad to mount although I did have to use a lever to get them onÖ..Guess weíll see how they do on my morning ride

This was the case a couple years ago, but there's great selection now, IMO. Check out the Favorite Road Tubeless Tires thread.

Are you taking about the Pro One Evo Addix? I'm rough on tires and still got 2500-3000 miles per rear tire with those.

Looks like it could use a carbon seatpost if you mean to ride it...

Way too much Garmin stuff, Besides getting the head unit and rear radar, enough peripherals to easily move them between bikes by just snapping them off and on.

I was using the Pro One Evo (the ones with the orange logo on the side), but I'm a pretty big boy at 6'4/210 so my tires tend to wear a little faster - the rear especially. The front Pro One is still in great shape
Went for a quick ride to test these new tires and I was very impressed with them. Not as supple as say the Yksion Pro's but very grippy and confidence inspiring the corners and, unlike the Pro One's, I didn't get any chatter during the fast descent down South Mountain.
Unfortunately, I did hit a pothole and had a pinch flat on the front wheel but that was completely my fault.

I'll check out the thread - thanks for the tip

I haven't used a 'bike computer' in YEARS, but I got a great deal on this and it should help in my Erie Canal travels. Hey Garmin, where's the canal?

Trying out La Passione, they're running a summer sale and I just received a pair of PSN bibs & gloves, and a sleeveless mesh base layer.

The bibs appear to be very high quality -- of equal or superior finish to my more expensive Assos T.cento_S7, Castelli Free Protect, and Rapha Classic bibs, none of which I've been completely satisfied with, which is why I'm still on the search for my perfect bibs. One thing I noticed when putting on the PSN bibs is that Elastic Interface chamois is placed for an aggressive riding posture and ends further forward than any other bibs that I own. I ride relatively low so it should be OK, but it does give me pause since I was hoping they'd supplant the Assos for century-plus long rides where my position might start creeping upright as fatigue sets in. I have back-to-back century rides coming up in less than two weeks, so I guess I'll find out soon if the PSN works.

The mesh base layer is unremarkable, it at least fits better than the smallest size Craft one I bought a few weeks ago, which was still baggy. For both the bibs and base layer I went with La Passione's fit wizard recommendation for an XS. I was concerned about length b/c at 5'9" with ~32.5" inseam I find the straps of my Assos and Castelli bibs to be inadequately stretchy, but thankfully sizing is spot on for La Passione.

I figured I'd take a flyer on the gloves even though I'd just been burned on some Castelli Entrata Vs that I mentioned in a thread I started about summer gloves. Most reviews recommended sizing up, which I did, and they definitely fit. The palm material has a good grippy feeling on bars, there's some lightweight but substantial padding that I'll either love or hate, and there's no special sweat/nose wipe at the base of the thumbs so I can only hope that the back won't get too soggy... Again if I end up wearing them on my upcoming ride, I'll find out soon.

3M Virtua 'safety' glasses
 
Bought a pair of these today for early morning/late evening/night riding-

Being a cheapskate I've just been wearing my everyday sunglasses when riding. But they don't give a lot of protection and the frames are kind of obtrusive, especially riding with my head down. I was browsing for some 'cycling-specific' glasses, but most look absolutely hideous, are ridiculously expensive, and many have a brow bar of some sort that would be just as obtrusive as my everyday glasses. For the heck of it I scrounged around in my toolshed for something in the pile of safety glasses that I've amassed with powertool purchases over the years (seems like they used to always include a pair when buying a saw or sander or whatever... and sometimes they were sunglasses/tinted). Thought, 'OK, I'll give these 3M wraparounds a try. They're PERFECT. Super light, NO frame, not totally ridiculous looking... I put them on and they pretty much disappear! And according to 3M they block 99.9% of UV. AND..... they can be found for as little as $3!!! (well, if you buy 12 or something online... individually at the home improvement stores they're $5-6). They come in clear, decently dark grey and some sort of coated blue, though I haven't tried those. I love 'em. Of course everyone's head is different, so probably they won't be comfortable for every shape, but they can't be beat for the price (and I don't have to worry much about losing/breaking them- they're practically 'disposable'). If yer lookin' for some riding shades, give 'em a try.

(from 5m or so the dark ones look kinda 60s Italian movie star/Eroica appropriate....)

Velocio Radiator SS jersey and arm sleeves came today. I'll reserve judgment on the Radiator jersey until it's been washed, as Velocio says it makes a big difference to feel. Fit-wise it's a bit short for my height (175cm) in XS but because it's stretchy, it probably works better than a S for me as it's neither tight nor loose around my arms and chest. As Velocio's fit guide mentions, the Radiator is looser around the stomach, so it's far from a flattering look, but I really want something that helps with the heat because I've been sweating like crazy on my rides this summer. The Radiator's sleeves are quite long, nearly reaching my elbows, though without grippers they might slide up a bit while riding.

OTOH the Velocio arm sleeves are going back because, after trying many different brands where the sleeves would either be too loose or too short, I finally found one made for even skinnier arms than mine. In size S I struggled to even put them on and felt them starting to cut off the circulation around my miniscule biceps. They're significantly longer than any other XS, S, or even M (Castelli) sleeves I've owned, too. I hope going up a size will work better.

Hoo Boy, I'm excited.
 
I'm going to Atlanta in two weeks. My sister, who is house sitting for a friend in Decatur, asked me if I could provide her w/ information for a bicycle her friend is selling, which belonged to her late brother. She sent me photos. I bought it on the spot. Nishiki International, in pristine shape and my size. I tried for one of these last year on Craigslist, and missed out.
