Cycling cap with visor/front flap for cool days when the sun is low and black and red Pearl gloves for warmer days. Still waiting on 2 Conti 5000Tls I ordered in June.

Great helmets for fit and finish at the prices I bought em for, regardless of what type of certification they have.

I thought about getting the Abus Airbreaker to get the full MVDP look, lol. A friend has the Met Trenta MIPS, that's one of the best looking helmets on the market.

Even though I get sketchy vibes from their website, Lordgun is legit.They always have the really good prices and they ship quickly. European shop prices in general can be so much lower than what we pay here in the States, I feel like we're getting ripped off.

3. Kask Valegro. To me, Kask makes the best road helmets on the market bar none. This helmet looks great, fits me like a glove, is super comfortable (Kask added a pad on the brow, resolving prior complaints), doesn't get in the way of glasses, is terrifically ventilated and is very well made. The latest version has Kask's "WG11" system which is their version of MIPS, I have no idea if it actually does anything. The traditional complaint about high-end Kask helmets has always been the price, but the Valegro is not even that expensive: I got it for ~$180 shipped from Bikeinn.

I recently picked up an Abus Game Changer after a crash required me to get a new helmet. Never thought Id spend that much on a helmet before but man do I love how it looks and feels.

Rapha core winter jacket.

I just made a big order for all the parts to build my first road bike. I'm sure not the best time to do it with inflated prices but at least it will be ready to roll when the reasonable weather gets here.

Just ordered some Gripgrab Merino winter socks, and some Lusso Windtex thermal stealth gloves, and just took delivery of this cool old retro Pepsi cycle top, which in this colour scheme with the blue stars, makes this middle aged man feel like Evel Knievel, even when just gently dropping down off a kerb.

I wanted a set of wider wheels for my Poprad, but did not want to spend much money. PBK sent me an email with a 15% code because I had not ordered from them in a while. I purchased a set of 32m GK SS tires, $60 for the two, and a set of Novatec rim brake, clinchers, $156 for the set, outside width of 24mm and inside of 20mm. They are on the heavy side and I do not care.

thanks. yeah, I will be using these as my training/commuter wheels. I'm keeping my ENVE 3.4s as my racing wheels. The price is so great, that, I'll be buying a few more sets

I just got a trailer hitch and 1up single-bike carrier for my new WRX.... My cheapie old Allen trunk mount tends to leave rub marks so the new car gets my first proper hitch mount rack.

Vintage Campy Eurus wheelset!

Going on early Gunnar TireBiter (now called Roadie).

Really dig the old school Campagnolo winged logo on hubs, front and rear.

Have set of new Pirelli P Zero Road 26mm to fit on them.

My most recent purchase was a pair of Zefal Pulse L2 Carbon bottle cages from Merlin Cycles. Weighing at 18 grams for 19$ Canadian each it gets my :thumb:.

Tektro 341 brake levers. Last time I ordered 340 and disliked how the hoods felt.

Arent the hoods the same shape on both? I thought the difference is that the lever arm curves inward more on the 341. Maybe thats how it used to be and the hood shape is now different?

I'm beginning to think you're correct. What I want is something like the one on the right,

https://i.imgur.com/x4qIwb8.jpg

which looks like it may be the Junior model; the place I ordered from, Condor, uses that pic for the 341. Some other sites do too.

The one on the left is what comes up for an image search for the 340 (and also 341, I now see). I find that model uncomfortable, too angular when you’ve got your weight on them. Guess they'll be going straight back – is there a thread for your most recent cycling related return?

Some vintage Adidas Vuelta cycling shoes

I ordered a fi`zi:k cyrano stem to match my fi`zi:k saddle. I looked back at the order and realized I accidentally got the 20 instead of 7 😲. I guess Ill have some fun with it, but I ordered the 7 today once I realized what I had done

Picked up my 2022 gravel bike yesterday. I had been on 2 waiting lists at nearby LBSs since October 2021 (cheers to the pandemic!)... Last week, a bicycle shop 2 hours away received one in my size & color, so I bought right away and did the drive. Ready for spring now! The TCR will stay inside until roads are cleaned up by our city :).
