Well, I tried to buy a helmet today.
Made a lunch stop at performance bike on the other side of town. As expected, after trying on many helmets, the only one I felt I would actually wear was the most expensive one they had, $189. Then I looked at some new shoes, and bibs, and shirts, and..... Next thing I know, I've got $600 worth of stuff in my hands.
Then my damned phone rang, and I had to get back to work ASAP, so I put it all down and ran out the door. I think I'll just stick the chainlove tracker on the home computer and see if something turns up in the next few days. I don't think my schedule has a spot for me to even consider a ride till Thursday.

If you know your sizes, pricepoint.com, departmentofgoods.com, sierratradingpost.com, competitivecycling.com and one or 2 others are places to look

working on some thing for a new frame.
I already have a carbon 29er frame and it has 1 1/8" head tube, top and bottom. the new possible new frame has 1 1/8" top and 1 1/2" bottom.

Problem is I dont want to put too many $$$ in to this and new forks are a pricy.

Are there any options out there for using 1 1/8" steerer tube forks that have a 1 1/2" bearing on the bottom?

Thanks
Hay Ewe

I'm pretty sure the answer's 'no' going from a smaller HT to a big steerer tube. You CAN go the other way tho.

Check Chris King's website. If anyone makes something, they do. ...Or problem solvers' site.

Also check the Cane Creek site.... I think the 40 series is the most flexible, almost to the point of confusion.

I've integrated Strava into my macro cycles within the periodization phases.

I know...let it go, I'll try.

No, it sounds like you're using the software correctly. Its the psuedo racing that gets me spun up.

Speaking of spinning... Went for a ride just now. 2:18 or zone 1/zone 2 in the rain. Well, mostly rain. As long as I've been riding I've been pooh-poohing fenders. No longer. Man I tell ya! Fenders are a doGsend. I'm not nearly as dirty as I would've been sans fenders. Still soaked tho. Wool rawks
