this winters eaten a few parts.
Rear wheel + new 4 season conti- hit a pothole and destroyed both. khamsin or whatever it is now rescued from a skip...
Veloce power torque chainset- worn out (winter #3 I think). replaced with the cheapest quality option I could find, ultegra sl.
LH ergo lever packed up again. Replaced with a new set.
Headset replaced.
Now on chain #3 for this winter.
Front wheel is showing a rather excessive amount of wear. Will replace both wheels for next winter with a pr of hope pro3, open pros I've got.
Look Delta's are on their last legs. Bought a set of ultegra 6800 cheaply to try.
Rear mudguard bracket broken, so cobbled with a tortec one, unfortunately leaves no clearance...
Saddle is getting a little bowed...
Lupines now playing up too :?

Its never ending, but its a great bike to ride :thumbup:

FINALLY built up my new winter/rain/commuter bike just in time for the first day of spring :| . My dilemma when deciding what to build was that I really love the CAAD10 and fat tires, but I need decent fenders. I decided to go for it and think this turned out pretty well. I got 28mm Vittoria Rubino Pros and standard Raceblade long fenders to fit. I had to bend the rear bracket over the top of the rear brake and use a modified Sheldon fender nut on the front. Only a few rides in but so far so good; my biggest complaint is the nicely matching cages catch my rolled up khakis :lol: .
