Sweet! The details in the black on the front is pretty neat. How big do they come? I have a pretty huge noggin', and I'm going to need a new helmet soon.

I'll never learn to accept Fabin's need to plaster their logo all over the stuff they sell.

I just bought one of Jeff's saddles, an Ergon backpack (actually it's ordered), two sets of Fibre-lyte rings, an ebay Liquigas jersey...and the highlight has to be the US Halloween candy, Velveeta & shells, and Beefaroni I scored at the Al-Khobar Safeway :grin:
I buy everything that JMT lists on this site.

I bought shoes and pedals last week. Does that count??

I have been thinking about a new seat, but how far does one go in upgrading an old bike???

By the way, Tillquist, that is one sweet helmet! Giro has outstanding designs don't they?

And Pritchett, what is the scop on the new wheels gear wise?

Pritch- Looks way better with a normal saddle :grin:

My recent purchases, fixing all the broken stuff from a season of racing. Carbon wheels, tape and the SRM back for a battery and decal change.

The black Ionos is sweet! In all the pictures I have seen it looks mainly black, but in person the deep bronze detailing is much more noticeable and makes the helmet much more interesting than just plain gloss black would be.

Slisk - I want that Ergon backpack! Where did you order yours from?

Saddle upgrades are always a good thing since you can move them to a new bike. Just don't toss the old saddle. I wouldn't bother replacing too many drivetrain parts though on an old bike. Perhaps saddle, handlebars, & pedals - if you feel the urge for more then get a new frame (or bike) & start from there.

Wheels? Simply amazing...... like if the only women that you have had relations with have been chunky & then you finally get a supermodel to go home with you. Yup, it's kind of like that.
