Lucky you. I saw them back when "by the way" came out. How long ago was that?

Don't know, 2 thoughts enter my head on that one:

1. "Ribbed, for his pleasure?"

2. "Non-slip my a--! Cheese grater for your nads."


Hope it's thought 1!!!!!

So do I!

I haven't even gotten around to installing it yet, though.

Picked up one of these off of ebay - cheap. Had to drive an hour to pick it up, but I use this thing at the gym and it's just the sickest workout. Worth having at home.

Specialized Prevail - 217g in size M on my scale, and thus 125g lighter than the Lazer Genesis (granted in size L) I have been using the last years. I am also hoping for better ventilation than the Genesis.

Picked up a pair of Bont Vaypor Premium last week. Got them in the wide edition. By far the best cycling shoes I've ever used. Finally a shoe that has a perfect fit for my feet. Funny thing is that that this is is the first pair that I've bought without trying them on first.

Thats just awesome luck on those shoes!


I scored a set of Zipp SLC2 handlebars to drop some weight off my mistress. 2 rides with them and I ain't sure if they are keepers though. The Campy 10s brake levers just don't sit right on the bars.

Well, I guess one reason for the shoes feeling awesome might be the fact that my previous pair of road shoes were falling to pieces. :D The fit is definitely the best I've ever had though.

Today I ordered the book "Becoming a Supply Leopard". I've been an mwod junkie for quite some time. :xBanana3:

For the Felt build.

Ritchey Evolution SL 40cm c-c 190g

So the current training bike didn't feel left out... As the cockpit has always been heavy on this bike, so I thought I'd try these bars from Planet X. Guizzo 40cm c-c 25.8mm clamp were only £33.33! Claimed weight was 200g - 196g actual!

Paired with a Syntace F99 stem 120mm I'd picked up cheaply a while ago I will save 193g with this combination over what is currently fitted!

Be interested to hear the feedback on how they run. I have feedback from another source that says they are ok, but go careful as for that rider they weren't as good as he'd hoped. I'm still curious as to what material they are as well, as they look to all intents and purposes like they are carbon fibre, in which case the resin won't stand up to really heavy braking (we've tried it) but the manufacturers claimed on 'the other forum' that they're not carbon fibre. I have yet to look at some close up so I can't be sure. Reviews so far have certainly been varied
