Nice wheels. You can tell its been a while since you have ridden clinchers. The labels on your tires are not centered with the valve stem. :angelMrGreen:

I'm really impressed with the design and finish of these brakes. I'll try and remember to take before and after shots of my bike when I fit them. They are smaller than the dual pivot brakes currently fitted, so I am hoping there will be some tangible improvements!

Early Xmas gift from a close friend. Serfas 250 True -250 lumens makes for close to 150 feet of clear vision by my guesstament. Just the ticket for my recent foray into 5:30 am rides.

Light and Motion Seca 1400. I'll finally be able to see on that damn 40mph descent at 5am! Lots of light, I can't wait to use it on Friday!

My footwear (hopefully for a long time). The bont a1 shoes just did not work for me, so I went on a shoe mission and, although I never expected it, my feet loved the mavic huez shoes. Loved them so much when I saw a pair of new zxelliums for $120, I had to give it a shot. Each has a slightly different feel- as you might expect, the huez is lighter and more "bare bones" while the zxellium is heavier (415g vs 566g) but has more of a "cradling" feel. They both fit my orthotic for my right foot quite well and they both feel great.

Anyone want a pair of season old bont a1's cheap? :wink:
(you'll notice I didn't put the size there for a reason!)
