After further consideration, it'd be a much better idea to just buy the harness.
So my trip to Colorado hasn't started off too well. I was late to the airport & missed my flight. Damnit. I'm scheduled for the next one, which is only 90 minutes later so it's all good. I'll still be able to (just) make my noon appointment for the Retul fitting in Denver.
I took my bike apart last night to try & avoid the $175 fee each way to travel with a bike on United Airlines. I left my wheels at home (coloclimber's going to lend me a pair), then removed the stem, brakes, fork, seatpost, cranks from the frame. The frame, fork, seatpost/saddle then went into a small frame box with a pillow & other packing materials. The box measured 6" bigger than the "no extra fee" size, but they didn't measure it. When I checked the box they asked what was in it - I said "a carbon frame". No fees.
If my carry-on bag is my stem/handlebars (levers & front brake attached) & the SRM. I'm pretty sure I packed the frame well, so hopefully it gets there in 1 piece.
First stop is Retul, then I'm driving down to the SRM office in Colorado Springs to pick up my new "Science" custom SRM. By custom I mean they have never made one like mine before. Campy square taper arms (gotta have 165mm arms), FSA spider (arms & spider have to be black) built with 16 strain gauges. Standard bolt pattern & I've got some fibre-lyte rings on order for it. Will the carbon rings hold up to a full season of racing with Di2? Only one way to find out!
Anyways, tomorrow there's a sweet ride in Boulder schedules & then the work on the Di2 battery. Finally, actual work tomorrow & Wednesday while in Denver. It should end up being a great trip!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
