    Already PM'd @rwsaunders to gratefully decline as I still have a couple in waiting, but wanted to thank him publicly for his generous offer. Class guy -- as are so many here.

    First time in about 15 years wearing a helmet. I wonder how long to get used to it. F3A6F0A1-6374-4F07-96A5-4D8421AC7D68.jpg

    Great purchase. A necessity for road tubeless. Show no mercy to those reluctant beads!

    yea, i should have gotten one of these years ago. i just popped a stubborn tubeless tire with approximately zero effort; and literally laughed out loud at how easy it was compared with fighting it. if you've got a 30 gallon shop compressor - may as well use it!

    I love Nitto seat posts, unfortunately I don't think that are recommended with carbon rail saddles?

    I think I purchased the last pair of Record carbon aero brake levers from a retail bike store in the world, found these looking through a parts list at a local bike shop.

    I had a set of those on a Giant Bowery fixie (singlespeed) once - the levers were worth more than the rest of the bike!

    I sold a pair of those a few years back and I think I used them for free for the entire time I had them because I'm pretty sure I sold them for more than I paid for them.

    Iím not surprised! I now have four sets which should last me forever or until I die, whichever comes first?

    30mm cg-iii tubs.

    These were never in the catalog. Perhaps a one off? Anyway, i am grateful. They're just like the commercially-available 27mm tubs, only exactly the magic width for a tubular for this fat middle-aged coelacanth.

    Best Regards,
