I've been having the same thoughts lately...a sscx seems like a smart investment to me! Enjoy it.

Gaulzetti Corsa

Thought I would add a Zetti to the stable and check out the ride/geo. This is a K Bedford built one with ISP and electronic only. Should be a fun project.

The smell of leather when opening this package was awesome! Looking forward to breaking these in tomorrow morning.

Jason sent me an e-mail the day after pre-ordering which is a very nice personal touch. It continues to amaze me that many of the vendors who supply us with the necessities of riding reach out like this. It's not often you get that kind of service in the e-tailing world.

Rotor rings

Love my rotor rings. Final piece to my next project.

Machined down original 6800 bolt/covers to compensate for the difference in thickness between the 6800 rings and the rotor rings.

Also, obligatory coffee picture. Beans from third floor espresso in Dublin Ireland.

Recently bought a Cateye Strada Slim wireless computer for my road bike. First computer I've ever had, which is kind of nuts.

I used to use my iPhone and RideWithGPS but I would get dropouts when riding in forested/remote areas and between the app, Google Maps and the camera, battery life was dicey on longer rides. Looking forward to having an always-on display of speed, distance, ODO. Pretty much all I need anyways.

The bar tape only if it's splash or zebra stripe.

Anybody wanna see the ControlTech Feather that Amazon shipped me when I tried to order a cheap basic MTB post? Twice.
