I bought myself some ultegra brifters from nashbar and ultegra brakeset from PBK over the holidays, because both were on a very good sale. I've been a good boy and haven't bought any other shwag since.

Now the question is, when to install them.... my current shifting/braking works, don't feel like rewrapping my bars. meh.

Deep v's for my singlecross, 16t cog, 48t sugino chainring and three gel packets for this coming weekend ride.

Couple of cycling DVDs. This one and this one

Should be arriving tomorrow or the next day. I already have the Mt. Desert Island DVD from them. The pace on these DVDs is a bit slow, but this type of video has been more successful at making me feel like I'm outside riding than any of my other training DVDs.

On Tuesday, I built up a nice new 49cm LeMond Etape for my wife. The attached pic shows how the bike was setup in the auction. Stem is now flipped, reflectors off, and we're changing things with the pedals.

At the end of February, my new Strong frame will be in my hands and ready to build.

Just one?!?! Man, 30 seconds after I got that email alert from probikekit that GP4000S' were in stock I bought four sets. I am set with tire sets!

My second most recent cycling-related purchase was a set of custom wheels built by Joe Young (DT Swiss 240s hubs, RR1.1 rims, & SuperComp spokes) and a SRAM OG1070 11-26 cassette for them.

What with it being the holiday season, my most recent cycling-related aquisition (i.e., non-purchased, aka Gift) was a bike fit from Signature Cycles (so it included new Ritchey bars & stem) and an Assos Airjack 851 jacket.

$25 race entry. Won $76.

A NOS Cignal Melbourne Express, which is a comfort tandem bike. The resort I work for bought 7 on a clearance from Joannou Cycles for rentals, which are being converted to single speed from 21 speed. I found out the price and asked for one for myself, of course on the grounds I don't disclose the price we got. I can't find a pic anywhere on the net, but I'll post one when I get mine assembled.

DocM 02-05-09 07:51 AM

My license renewal. And last week, a set of Fulcrum Racing 7s (in red, of course) for training.

mrbUSA 02-05-09 08:06 AM

I turned 43 today and my wonderful wife bought me the Poseur jersey. Truly fitting :)

The final piece in the puzzle:

EPO and a pair of robotized bionic legs.

I'll still get dropped.
