Picked up a light & motion vis 180 for the time change coming in a few weeks. Also a few Vredestein latex tubes and a set of veloflex master 23s.

Two of these arrived yesterday. Panaracer Greenlites tubes. Will give them a go. Weight isn't too shabby for the two 57gms each.

You found Greenlites? From where? That's what I always rode with more than a decade ago. I still have 1 MTB tube left but no road tubes.

Can you do me a favor? Weigh those two bottles with their full content. Thanks!

Could have gone lighter, but got a great deal and I love the look.

Got a pair of these:

Zipp Service Course CSL handlebars. Super short reach, 40cm. Got them yesterday and have found some interesting things in it's mating with a K-Edge Garmin mount. Looking to take some pictures tomorrow, but what I will say now is that the ovalization of the bar makes using out front mounts a bit tricky.

Ordered the new Assos iJ.intermediate_S7 jacket, possibly just to ensure that we shall not have any unseasonally hot October days here. Tried balancing it with some winterBooties_S7, though.

^^Excellent choice! Thermal bib shorts are a great piece of kit up north. I've got my two pairs back in use after the summer and they're every bit as good as I remembered. The strategically placed windproof patch 'in front' makes them perfect. With leg warmers you can go almost down to 0 degrees with them. They're expensive, but worth it.

Are they good are they? I've not ridden them before but noticed the weight more than anything. How do they compare to other tubes in puncture resistance?
