    What's this? Me, with wheels that have centrelock hubs and decals going right to the edge of the rim?:

    DT Swiss PRC1400 disc review wheels* for the next review bike, which will have a disc review groupset - might as well kill three birds with one stone, eh?!

    (*which may or may not be returned, depending whether I like them, because I may or may not have a disc bike of my own on the way...)

    Finally admitted to myself I spend more time commuting then training (on same, and only, bike), and maybe replacing my KEOs with A600 would be a good idea. The postman delivered me a box similar to yours, together with a 3->2 hole adapter for weekend rides, but I just can't get around to installing them. KEOs are also easier to ride with allstars.

Stupid recurring ischial thing but no problems on the ride with this saddle today. We'll see over the next several weeks.

    Well, I didn't get around to getting a frame bag sewn, and I had to admit that I hadn't actually used a frame bag enough to really know how I wanted to design it, so I got one flown in.

    Oveja Negra managed to get an order on Tues AM and have it to me by wednesday EOB. They did the back bag, too, though that one has been rattling around in inventory for two years. The handlebar bag got sewn last weekend.

    Sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and puffy jacket in back; tent and groundcloth in frame bag; the rest up front.

    It'll be a good four-day campout, riding in a big circle in the San Juan range.

    Best Regards,

    Happy to report that the 32-spoke wheel is alive and well.

    Postperson Sue brought me these, the latest bit of subterfuge for my Hampco faux-Gitane.


    Not the rims, the stickers. The faux Aspins are tubulars, these are clinchers with Compass 28's.

    #crossiscoming or so I heard. 2 Schwalbe Racing Ralph tubulars and an S950 crankset. The Schwalbes look narrower than the FMB I used to ride but I decided my level wasn't worthy of riding FMBs this year and I decided to go the cheap route. 50€ a pair of cx tubular ain't bad. I still hope they'll stretch a little bit. The crankset came with a compact spider that will be replaced by a 40t narrow wide direct mount chainring that has been collecting dust for months in my parts bin.

    hudson's bay 8 point (king size blanket). it's massive. 108" x 100"...i currently sleep on a full size hahah.
    never thought i'd come around to appreciating the feel of an "itchy" wool blanket, but i have made a move toward purchasing lifetime/heirloom quality gear and thought it was time to get rid of the down comforter i've been using for too long (it's lost a lot of down over the years).
    highly recommend!

    Assos North America had a sale yesterday, mate picked up this cap for me, 40% off. Unlike most of the inexpensive caps I’ve used, this one fits very well, glad to drop the big bucks.

    Avid Shorty Ultimates to the replace the Shorty 4's on my wife's bike.
    She's been complaining about the brakes for a while, so I thought this might be a good way to "set it and forget it" for a while.

    She now reads DC Rainmaker evidently.

    edit: Unless our apartment is vertical, this is right ways up at home.
    I hope you never need customer support because Tacx is horrible. Lot's of one sentence emails that explain nothing.

    We have one of those on the sofa in our kitchen dining area - though not the king size of course. They are wonderfully warm.

    My lady wanted to get me a little something . . . so it's straight to the company I love to hate, but also hate to love . . . speedvagen. I'll rock a speedvagen jersey on a firefly ti with no paint, cuz, that's how I roll. Jersey is decent if a little too thin, shirt is kind of cool (my lady liked it), the bottles are for sure decent. And for the all the eagle eyes out there, yea, that's a polk floor tower speaker . . . kids today don't even know stereo.

    Oddly enough I was riding back in 1995 and had one of those purple/pink Fat Chance jerseys . . . seems all that is old is now new.

    More road bike parts just keep showing up. I wish someone would tell me there's more to life than road bikes. Thought I'd try out a Shimano FD-5801 this time around. While I don't hate the 9000/5800 front derailleurs I have, I'm curious about their return to low profile after their experiment with the long arm derailleurs.
