In the last 5 minutes I tried to snipe a GXP BB on eBay and lost...and used BIN to buy a different one. Boring.

After watching half a dozen Salsa quill stems in the size I need go by at $65 or so on Ebay, I got one for $5 at my local used-bike-stuff store.

No stickers.

Which saved me taking them off.

2 pkg Cinelli cork wrap (I still like it the best...),
3 Vittoria Tubes, threadless. My favorite....

Not very glamorous, just keeping me on the road...

A couple weeks ago, I picked up a fizik saddle bag (because I wanted to have one that wouldn't rub my Ti seatpost, and would accentuate the seatpost curve) and some inexpensive blackburn bottle cages (just can't seem to get behind super expensive cages) that are in a similar finish to the seat post.

When I get some scratch together, I'll be changing out the stem to a Ti stem (probably Moots), and switching to probably grey handlebar wrap, and maybe white hoods.

Old pic for reference.



New pic from this morning.

Matt, I have praised your DK many times and always thought that the stem looked "out of place" in your bike. Glad you are thinking of changing it.

A set of H + Plus Son TB14 , they are everything I was hoping they would be.
The wider rim really does give a smoother ride with better traction.
