Just got another pair of these Vredestein Comp Race tires from Competitive Cyclist (no affiliation). They show up as $44.95 each, but when you put them in the cart you get %50 off!

Very round profile and give a confident cornering feel. Can be had in 23mm or 25mm. I like'em.

Your most recent cycling related purchase

Just put down a deposit on a Waltly ti frame. Mimicking the geometry of my GT grade with a few tweaks to improve fit. Probably build up with ultegra di2, and have ability to run two sets of wheels - clearance for 700x45, so I'll be able to have a 650b by pretty large for off road and some 700x30 for on road.

Beautiful bike. But personally, I would buy a chain before I started blinging out the shoes!

Quite like the lines on Waltly frames. Looking forward to pics of your bike.
