Schwalbe One clinchers, 23c - 207g and 210g. Ride report to follow in awhile on the "One" thread.

Compare that to the last 3 pairs of Ultremo ZXs I mounted new at 192-203g/ea.

...and in an effort to move to a smaller saddle bag, I popped on a Silca. It's an impressive little bit to hold and look at, but a riding partner flatted earlier this week and I used his cheapo chuck that worked like a charm. So, take that into consideration.

Cheap (and light) way to get (some kind of) power metrics. Now I will have to read a book to use this tool.

I've got one of those. Can't really do too much with it, other than track TSS.

Works well enough if you've got a real PM on your main training bike and want stress data from other bikes.

I was getting a spiky readings from the powercal, HR and power, that it was worthless to wear it. Any tips on how to use it ?

HR was always fantastic for me. Best HR monitor I've ever used. Avg power over time was okay-ish.

It is what it is.

HR data - OK
Power data - still learning how to use it. (More interested in average values for now)

I agree with jmilliron- HR data is very good if you remember to get the chest contacts wet before you start to ride (just lick them!). The power data is also good IF you realize that the instantaneous data is not accurate, but the 10-20 second averaged data is not bad. That means you have to use this differently than a "real" power meter, and you can't expect it to give you good information on jumps and sprints. Sustained power is fairly good, however.

Great looking bike there, mate...!
How does she ride?

At Elite Racing Cycles, by the looks?
Special order item, or something they had hanging around at the shop?

Iv just ordered myself a Tacx T3350 Team workstand and a Park Tools Maintenance book. Will help with general cleaning and while I am ok with general adjustments, I am keen to get a bit more hands on with maintenance and home mechanics... Its too hard trying to lift the bike with one hand and turn the pedals / make adjustments with the other

Also a Fizik R3 Antares with carbon rails, and some High5 Electolyte tabs.

Should all be here in the next week or so!

Spare tub for back pocket (Vittoria Cronos).
Lezyne caddy sack (medium).
Valve extensions.

Dull but necessary kit, just in case the Caffelatex doesn't deliver.

Bought these from a fellow WW and can't wait for them to arrive. Stole this picture from Lightnings site. I will match this crank up with Fibre-Lyte rings so it should be nice and light.
