    Racing Zero/Shamals are maybe the best system aluminum wheels. I'm actually debating if to get the disc brake version for myself before it disappears in favor of the new carbon ones.

    Yeah, they're great. I had a set of the Nites for a while and I abused them horribly and destroyed the rim coating. These will also get abused, but they won't look as jacked up afterwards.

    No photos? Whenever I see Matt's name on the postman thread, I always click to see photos of new shoes or new wheels. Sigh.

    You know me too well. Here's a compromise. Only one wheel and a box. And two bikes.

    This showed up last Friday, but I've been too busy making MTB trails or riding it to post!

    Ritte Satyr: size specific Custom Reynolds 725 tubeset, custom machine parts, stock Tom Kellogg geometry(this one is Medium), so, so much fun. I have a parts order coming from Ritte HQ in LA to swap over to a double to have a little bit more varied range down in my neck of Virgina's Blue Ridge, and get rid of all the scuffed up non-matching cockpit stuff that I stuck into it to get my contact points right.

    It's v. nice to ride a "gravel" bike with proper road bike roots. This bike DOES NOT eff-around when it comes to descending anything that even resembles a "road", but the stock 40c WTB's have enough meat on the tread and casing to keep me inflated when I invariably drop into an inviting looking blue-square singletrack descent. I can't wait to get some 32 or 35c slicks onto this thing and continue to get lost for many hours at a time.

    I have a spectrum "road 32" type and it is indeed awesome. 32 Gravel king slicks can do just fine on the road but also give you a lot more options when you take the random washed out gravel descent :) enjoy mickey! [btw: I am dreaming of the blue ridge...one day perhaps I'll relocate to asheville :) ]

    Still having a blast with it, and now my 11yr old son has started riding it - which is awesome because he has some balance and gross motor skill challenges and I never ever thought he'd want to get anywhere near this. He loves it, and it's great balance therapy for him. After a whole day of driveway laps and 100s of dismounts with me holding his hand, he let go sometime Sunday afternoon. Yeah he's wearing crocs and pajamas. I can't win all the battles.

    That is great to hear. Glad that he is enjoying it, and that it's become a therapy tool.

    I will admit that the Crocs were the first thing I noticed about the pic, but, given the helmet, elbow pads, and wrist guards, I think you're winning the war, as it were. :)

    My wife and I are expecting a baby within the next week or so, and she will probably be working from home through the end of the year. Most likely, it will be next spring before we look at these. But, she was the one who suggested it, and she's still interested, I was the one on the fence about it. So, we'll probably end up with one eventually.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Yeah, finding shoes that he is comfortable with wearing from a sensory standpoint has been a long struggle and it takes weeks to transition from one pair of shoes to another.

    After having this thing for a month, I have come to the conclusion that it is indeed a little less stable than the larger Plus and Plus XR platforms. The Pint is certainly very nimble, but when things get wavy and bumpy it's a lot more work to keep steady than the full size onewheels. I've started doing trips into town on mine (up to 10 or 11 miles now - so yeah I'm doing better than the stated 6-8 mile range) and it's a less good long distance cruiser than the wider models. Still love it though - and despite the fact that it has a motor, it's a killer lower body and core workout.

    The plastic boxes I ordered 3 weeks ago that apparently the courier had tried to deliver to my office 4 times but no-one was ever there - when twice I waited by the door for 4 hours after work because they said the package was coming...

    I told Amazon at lunchtime that they hadnít arrived so they issued a refund - and then 90 minutes later they turned up.

    Hehe.... thanks. The offer is spot on, though I still have half a bottle. I’m just hoarding. :-)

    BTW, whatever happened to the NFS bar tape?.. if not available anymore, what’s a good equivalent?

    Is that a handlebar bag or only a pouch to carry around ?

    After 32 days or so, my pair of Fizik R3b shoes has arrived from Israel.
