Thanks for thelink, I got even smarter and went to their website. 2000 Palmeres decals no problem $29.95/set.

My next question is whether anyone knows relative lifespan for carbon forks?

Hahaha, $3k for a groupo... Like I have that

There is a good reason I am riding thrity year-old bicycles and my motorcycle has 139,000 miles on it...
I somehow managed to NOT qualify for recovery funds. I figured I was a shoe-in with two daughter's in college..

I'm checking the couch when I get home and my peanutbutter - change jar.

That's why I suggested a bit or two at a time. Unfortunately, in yer case, ya gotta go shifters/r der/cogset/chain/wheels at the same time or ya can use any of it. UNLESS you have an S8/9/10 wheel then you can run C10 with S9 wheels till ya get the dosh for Campy wheels.

Can we split this thread in two? The last thing I need to do is see mountain biking stuff. Road riding alone is taking all my play money.

uh...no. I'm going to keep on talking about mtn bikes just for that, which reminds me I had a great ride today, very technical rocky with a beautiful view of the ocean for most of it. We were following a section of the East Coast Trail so we did have to carry our bikes up close to 1000 feet vertical to get from water level up to the top of the ridge. Sorry, no photos. Maybe tomorrow?

Still gonna be right over.

Oh, BTW: you suck. You suck big, ole Misery Goats.

Ha, the wee little Katoom is still in pieces but a few less then last week, it's coming along. Now that I've found the pesky spot to bolt on the unidentified ground wire I should move forward a little faster? Still need to do the valve check. Oh and this just arrived too

Hurry over, there's cold beer in the fridge.


As for the 100+ Sucks to be you!
I used to ride in that kinda heat with 100% humidity when I lived in NC many moons ago, make sure you stay hydrated
maybe this will cool you off?
