edit2: Finally took a pic with the new wheels.

My Pro37s are really quite also.

Yea I got some of the Pro 37's for my wife's bike and hey are quiet, but these wheels are almost silent, I so was not counting on that.

One of the cheaper purchases I have made for bike accessories, market baskets. They are actually kitchen storage baskets I found on Sierra Trading Post, $15 for the pair. They are just the right size for my needs. I have them zip tied to the the racks, which are smallish and pretty light.

Working very well. Mount as low on the bike as can be, distribute the weight fairly evenly, it rides and handles nicely.

I almost bought one of those, but was not sure how long it would take to get here, and the BBInfinite I got in 2 days. Interesting to know how you like it.

it took 30 days to get from great Britain to Toronto Canada. Iím sure the pandemic had a lot to do with it. I donít actually need it right now but I thought it would be prudent to have a spare bottom bracket. Most likely will install it next spring.

I had to take advantage of their Monday sale and get a tool I have been wanting and needing for a while. Also picked up a socket Crombie and some t-shirts

Great choice. I have the Park Tool and while it works it's just not machined well enough for it to slide smoothly. I think the Abbey tool is a better design and I think Park Tool thinks so also as they now make a similar model. Have fun with your new tools, I am envious.

Ahhhh, good call on my part then as I did need one at the time.

I know... What in the world is that thing! Building a gravel bike out of one of the Lynskey hardtail mountain bikes... so I will need this gem to mount Ekar brakes.

The whole thing. 14 month wait on the frameset from Colnago. NOS Super Record 11.
Rides really tight. Just got back from the first ride a few minutes ago.

Yeah the new Park Tool one is nice. Honestly if budget was totally unlimited I would probably have gotten the EVT and it would go in custom laser cut Kaizen Foam inserts in a lovely custom wrapped Snap-On rolling box with all sorts of custom stuff. However it is not like I have gone cheap, but I do value a bit more portability in my current kit and honestly I don't use it as often as owning a EVT True Arc would really entail.

I plan on having some good times. I love Abbey and love the feel of a good tool in my hands. I handed my Decade chain tool to someone who doesn't work on bikes or cars or anything but has worked with tools much of their life and they felt it and loved it even though they have no idea what it does.

my little digital pressure gauge died so I picked up a Topeak D2 SmartGauge a little pricey, but a friend has one and it is pretty nice, so I figured why not.

New tires....again - Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport in 28mm (tubeless). They actually measure 28mm at 80psi
I've put about 500 miles on them so far I'm very pleased. They offer a nice supple ride, very good grip, and so far, no punctures even though I've ridden through some questionable debris several times. I'll happily buy these again if they're still available when I need a new set....

Had to buy a single Bontrager R3 tire yesterday.


https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...09c91c809.jpeg


Frustrating, only has 600 miles on it.

Just got one too. $43CDN. Useful for my car too!

So I bought a new bike and a new bike rack in the last year, but when I took my wife's car to get the initial free oil change today, I ended up buying a new truck to go with my new bike and my new bike rack. I really had no plans for a new truck, but it just seemed like the right thing to do. I was chatting with the sale manager whom I ride with here and there and when I was selling my Cannondale SuperSix a few years back, he happened to be the one that bought it. Anyway, he pointed out a 2022 Ridgeline that just came in last night, the only one on the lot, and I was like, lets go for a ride. He told me that there was a dude driving in from Tallahassee to look at it, and I was like, yea, but I am here now and how much more biz are you going to get from him? He lives 200 miles west of here, I live about 12. He said, let me get the keys. :lol:

Needless to say, no bargaining on the new truck price, but they gave me a lot more for my current truck than I thought they would. While I was waiting on them to finish the prep work, a random dude starting asking me questions about my 2018 Ridgeline and he ended up working a deal for that one. We had not even sighed the papers yet on my new truck and the old truck was sold. I was like hold on, I need it off my insurance first, so he put a deposit on it to hold it until tomorrow and then I can bring in the other key.

Easiest damn sales this guy ever made.

Oh and I picked up a Wahoo Speed Sensor for my Emonda.

Silca Secret Chain HOT MELT Wax. Can't wait to treat my chains with it.

I just recently cleaned one of my chains (with 1100 miles) to an agitated mineral spirit bath and got a scary amount of black magnetic material out of the wash. That's my chain literally grinding away! I use a very good lube - Rock N Roll Gold - and the chain looked very clean.... much, much cleaner than it would have looked with a wet, drip lube. No where close to 0.5% wear checked with the drop in too yet. But that quantity of residue convinced me to go to wax. Specifically wax with tungsten disulfide instead of PTFE.

Great thread!
 
My last purchase? Online, this morning actually, a FSA The Pig headset and a Sram 11 speed chain. Tge fsa is for my latest fixie build, the chain, for my hybride that had a chainring upgrade from 36T to 42T.

A TACX direct drive trainer. Because my bikes get sad when theyíre not ridden during the cold, dark winter months.

Bought a Roland not-so-new beach cruiser with a 3 speed Shimano coaster wheel for $80. I will swap that 3 spd wheelset on to my current SS beach cruiser.
