    BMX saddle and pivot post to finish off my daughter's stride bike! It'll be done by Christmas - only thing left is chopping the steerer.

    Anton has received his racing bike/frame for next year, he will race under 13 downhill next year. My new bikes may stay in the living room, but his may rest in his bed, he just moved to our sleeping room, he is such a 'baby' still, but kicking ass on riding bikes down the European mountains.

    These took a while to arrive having been shipped from England. They're not really thin enough to use as cone wrenches so I may have a project.

    My early impressions of CX1 are positive:
    - Out of the box, I noticed that the levers feel identical to new generation Red levers. The rear derailleur is substantial, sturdy and purposeful. The chainring looks like a weapon.
    - Installation is easy.
    Yaw front shifting is, IMO, tedious to set up, and CX1 has none of that. The CX1 directions are still worth following as the rear mech is non-standard for road gear. I was a bit perplexed by the chain length since the formula (big, big, +4 links, add powerlink) left a tiny bit of slack in the smallest chainring, but I gave the b-screw a turn or two and it seems fine now. Also, it is a still mystery to me why hidden chainring bolts make any sense, oh well.
    - CX1 works well. The drivetrain feels efficient and is totally silent... almost like a single speed. Shifting action is pleasantly light like new gen Red and is as crisp and uneventful as I would expect new bits to be. Shifting under load on the trail is reliable, and I didn't observe any chainslap despite the rocky goings and my pathetic efforts of abuse. My gearing of 40x11-32 feels about right for trails and moderate road riding.

    I will absolutely use this set up for cyclocross racing in 2015. More useful gear range and fewer parts. A lot to like. Goodbye 46T - we had nothing in common.

    I will try this 1x set up for various dirt rides, especially since SRAM is now offering a huge 11-36 11s cassette which may be useful on some of those long super-steep climbs at F2G2, Kearsarge, etc where I've felt that ~34Tx27 is not quite low enough for me.

    I have to wonder if they saw a "Fragile" sticker and decided to test the packaging.

    I've had that happen to a package that had the sender's zip code in the receiver's address. A person sends it the right direction, but automation returns it to the sender. Becomes a cosmic stupidity loop with dark matter at its center.

    I started off with good luck with the postman...
    New Kurt Kinetic Z-Rollers arrived. Worked perfect. Finally got to turn the pedals on my new track bike (see Marinoni thread in the gallery section for better pics).


    Then it went to not great luck, but kind of lucky?
    Then I was waiting for my Speedplay track edition pedals to arrive after 3 weeks...
    The store sent the wrong pedals...and instead sent me some Speedplay Titanium versions (way more expensive) accidentally. Their loss I guess, but not want I wanted. If any VSaloners are interested in those, PM me.


    To bad luck...
    Then while on a ride I had a shifter cable snap on me, so I ordered a new Campagnolo cable set from a Toronto LBS through their online store. Normally I would go to the store but its a 50 minute drive and I'd rather use my get out of jail free card (to leave my wife with our 4 month old twins) to go on a ride, rather than a trip to the store. I just wanted to do a full cable replacement and add new bar tape and get back up and running quickly. The order was placed on a Sunday, supposed to ship on Monday to arrive for Tuesday. I get an email Tuesday (rather than Monday!) to say the bar tape I ordered actually isn't in stock despite what the website says, and they offer an alternative tape. I agree, in the interest of getting my order out the door, I just want to ride. Order arrives on Wednesday. I block off some time to remove all the cables and bar tape, clean everything up, and I cut all the housing to the right lengths and get it all routed perfectly so I can head out for a ride...and I realize the cable set box has been opened...and that the brake cables aren't in the box. I guess the bike store poached the cables for a build or something and never replenished them and sent me an incomplete box. SUPER ANNOYING. I am reminded why I rarely shop local once again...

    Thanks, wife!

    Giro Ambient City gloves - pittards leather, super soft.

    Lezyne travel pump - since my floor pump doesn't fit in my carry on, and adds lbs to checked bags...

    Yeah, I've been wearing mine for well over a year, from long road rides, to cross racing, MTB riding and daily commutes. Also casual. They are perfect.

    I might have to give that pump a go too actually.
