AVID Juicy 7s
 
Anyone interested in a F/R set of Avid Juicy 7s?

They have three rides on them.

Levers, cables, calipers and pads (no rotors).

I can send a pic to anyone interested.

New Bike
 
I've been collecting parts and talking to guys at the local bike shop to fix up my old GT. I started looking at the fixed gear bikes and single speeds while there. I used to ride mountain bikes all the time on the trails around here but after taking a trip to Moab and Colorado it wasn't as much fun back home on the same trails. I got into road bikes next and still ride those but started exploring on the old mountain bike.

Now I enjoy taking off from my house and just exploring rather than having a predetermined route. I live about five miles from downtown and it's fun to ride down there on the weekends as there is very little traffic. Dallas is pretty flat so I thought it would make it a little more challenging to ride a single speed and might be fun.

Anyways, they had one of these Specialized Centrums on sale cheap and I bought it. I've only ridden it a few times so far but it's fun. There is a lot more pedaling involved with a single speed! :D It's just a basic no frills bike that I can hop on and go exploring with.

It should hold me over till I can save up for a Stumpjumper and get back into mountain biking. I'm ready for another long ride this weekend!

My Serotta Nove gives me wood.

Campagnolo = Copulation
Shimano = Capitulation

Now 10 months since I've ridden a road bike. But only two hours since I've walked across the -130F (windchill) Antarctic plateau. :eek1 :huh

2009 Konas are up on the webpage. And unless they decide to raise their prices later, looks like all the gloom and doom about bike prices might have been wrong.

Some neat looking new road bikes in the sub $1K category. I really like the new Dew Drop.

I dunno about the wood, but I'm quite pleased with my Campy equipped Nove as well.

skibum69 08-20-2008 11:44 AM

I totally dog the Campy Record 10 on my Litespeed Palmerés:D

The shimano STI is the best designed shifter by far. I could never get used to the campy thumb button. That said, sram red will probably be my next group. I think I could get used to the double tap and the whole group goes for ~$1200 NIB on ebay. The new dura ace retails for $2600!

Hey Gang how's it going?

I just had the pleasure of picking this up...

Just bought D/A STI and ft and rr brakes. Add a chain and a coupla pairs of brake shoes, and I'm into the shop for over $600 at WHOLESALE prices. :eek1

That don't include the rest of the stuff that I have on my Crosshairs that's about to get pulled onto the Fetish that I inherited! :eek2

DAMN! Even on the cheep, this is a spendy thing to do!

Dammit.

Had a flat last night.

That wasn't the worst part. It would appear that all the drive side eyelets on the rear wheel are cracked. (Bontrager Select 24 spoke wheel.)

I'll probably take a stab at getting them replaced under warranty as the Bontrager stuff is supposed to be covered for 5 years. I've never been super happy with these wheels though, so I wouldn't mind an excuse to upgrade.

I'm a big guy and really stomp on the pedals, but I do enjoy the benefits of a lighter wheelset. Oh yeah, this race season as left me pretty much cleaned out, so I'm kind of looking for the holy trifecta of light, strong and cheap. I'd also like a pony... :D

Any ideas of things to look at?

The Neuvation M28 Aero has caught my eye. Guy claims they'll handle a 250lb. rider no problem and it's only $133 for a rear.

There's always the old standby 32 spoke Open Pro/Ultegra setup that a lot of people swear by.

That happens to me at the starts of most of my races. I just have a crew stand by about 100 yards from the line so I can swap out my rear wheel...and somtimes my bent crank. Just don't touch that hub while it's still smokin'. :lol3

Is that the paired spoke configuration? I have them and haven't had any problems, but they have a bit of a reputation for being a flawed design.
