I buy every day.  One of the perks of running a bicycle focused business. 

In the last week or so i have gotten a new frame, stem, bars, shifters, Bottom bracket, BB shim, Yokozuna cables, some of the new DA 7900 carbon pedals - heck yeah.....

....built up a front 20h EDGE 1.68 carbon tubular rim I had sitting around -weighs in at ~500g  :o

...etc....i am sure I missed stuff.  It's been crazy with most of the team getting new bikes and dropping them off for me to build and the swap meet coming up on saturday, etc....looks like I picked the wrong week to stop doing meth.

Look, I can't have you withdrawing while you are building my wheels.  Now go out and buy some rocks right now! :wha:

swap meet

I wish we had one of these locally this time of year. I'm keeping my eyes out for some used DA 7800 or 7900 stuff. Shifters, both derailleurs, calipers.

Is that why wheels have less spokes every year? :innocent:

Jen, Bonk Town has side loaders on the site for $20, if it is not too late.

Just finished Roadie, and also The Rider. Both of them were quite good.

I read that within two days of I got it (Christmas), and despite botto's giant shill, I didn't learn anything particular. But I did get a good laugh at the whole "roadies freaking out over one millionth of an inch" ;D  But I guess it was for the uneducated coworker or girlfriend or something.

Yah.  It was mostly written to give to your spouse/friend to help them understand what the hell is wrong with you.  But I found it a quick and fun read.

I'm going to have to reread The Rider sometime.  Feel like I went through it too quickly.

I just finished The Rider on my Kindle.  Great read.  I then started Rough Ride.
