I'm curious about this one (looking for those hubs for a reliable build)!

Please give us more details...:-" After 1200 miles the hubs are" ... waste... ?

I assume you like them still, if you bought 4 of them, or it's because of price ?

Ordered a set of the Sidi Ergo 2 Vernice in the Bettini World Championship color. Not a bad pick up at ~$220 since I really need a new set of road shoes. Hopefully the gold on the shoes will reflect the sun's rays into the other riders eyes and blind them so that I can ride away from them. :mrgreen:

Those shiny shoes are very nice! I ordered a pair last year, but returned them after they arrived as they didn't fit as well as my Carbon 6.6s. Still at $220, I might try them again--where do I get that price?

Today, I ordered a SRAM Red front derailleur, as my experiment with using a Record 10 didn't work--with my gearing combination (42/50), not in general perhaps. Shouldn't make a big impact on the overall weight, fortunately.

53x12 they are hooooot shoes!!!


I pulled out the tape measure and found out that I can in fact fit my 595 that I thought was too large - that to me constitutes almost buying something! As i thought I was going to have to sell it! Seat post and steerer get sliced tomorrow - there will be pics :mrgreen:

God I am excited!

I would hazard a guess he is talking of a Michelin tyre rather than a Hope hub!

Thanks. I can't wait to get them in the mail. I'm sure my ridding buddies will give me a hard time the first time I wear them. But who cares.

As long as you're not all show and no go they'll have nothin'.


There's also a good case for "I have the cash - so why should I not buy some shoes that inspire me and feel great"

got me a pair of downtube shifters ( i will feel sorry later ) to replace the 7800 sti s

Image

i needed the 7800 sti s for another bike and this will do for the short rides on the steel commuter bike
mayby i will have some 7900 sti s when they come cheaper
i had some 7400 brake levers left so it will fit nice
looks like there days you can only get entry level or ultegra brake levers without shifting

Volvo OEM (made by Thule) load bars and three Thule 518 Echelon fork mount bike racks for my Volvo S60 R.

No more having to use the wife's SUV or put my bike in the trunk with the seats folded down!

I'm not sure if you are only referring to Shimano, but ...

I splurged and got an emporelli dolomiti bottle cage to replace a 3 year old btp cage. It's so nice I want another one!
