The official : "what have you bought today" topic

Discussion on bikes, and whatever...

Postby Juanmoretime » Thu Dec 27, 2007 5:18 am

Well I didn't buy it today since I purchased this on Monday. An XTR crank although just one of the many upgrades I have done on my MTB that I swore I was going to ride it as is. I was just dialing it in when I changed the pedals, cranks, chain, cassette, wheels, rear derailleur shifters, grips, handlebars, stem, brake levers and brakes honest! :wink:
For my next trick I will set myself on fire!

Here is some cycling stuff that I got for Christmas.
I cant wait to try these tires after reading so many positve things about them. They will have to wait until Spring when all the rock salt and sand is washed off of the roads. The helmet is very comfy and lighter than my Atmos. The gloves are not very warm I road yesterday for 2 hours and it was 35 degrees (my hands were cold). Sidis are always great.

I have a pair of 43´s in red. They run really large in sizes so it might not be off. PM me if you´re interested.

Oh, here´s the MTB frame. It´s so nice.

:shock: The postman must be about ready to claim your house under squatting laws! Love the paintjob of the frames. Any thoughts on shoe fit yet?

Holy crap dude, two frames, two sets of LWs, six pairs of shoes and all this at once? Sweet! The road frame looks particularly nice :thumbUp:

No, sadly not. The pair I ordered for myself are too big. I can´t tighten them nearly as much as they should. I use size 41-42 in normal shoes and all my Specialized, Northwave, Diadora and Sidi shoes has been perfect in 41, but I think I could fit a size 40 here... Unfortunatly I didn´t order a size 40. :cry:

But the shoes are very impressive. Light and SOO stiff.

Yes, I am really happy about the look of the frames. I have just ordered a pair of grouppos so I soon can have a ride on them.

@Rasmus, the LW´s is a different story.http://fairwheelbikes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4361 And I actually has 2 more frames including a 890SL but they are all sales samples. (Altough I will probably end up riding the one on the pic. :wink: ).

I saw the DITEC 890 frame in LBS and thought it looked pretty good , light & quite well finished. Would love to hear your experiences of how it rides
