Lost weight, and now even need a smaller helmet! 8-month old Time pedals began squeaking! Ordered:

Giro Air Attack
Assos Robofoil
Assos UV Arm Protectors x2 sets
Castelli wool jersey
Look S-Track pedals
a second pair of Scott MTB Team Carbon shoes

After paying income taxes, now also completely broke.

I received both the 1.8mm and the 2.5mm lizardskins DSP so I thought I'd compare them.


I expected the difference to be bigger tbh.

@astranoc: I think the difference in thickness is mostly extra air in the foam, not more material.

I got these today. Cannondale Si forks made by Time. 215mm steerer.


Minus 15g for the starnut gives 309g. Pretty damn light for £68.

2013 Specialized EVO mtb


Got them in the wrong size. Sold them and then bought them again for a guy who had done the same. Funny how the world goes. They will replace my 1999 Shimano shoes which actually are pretty damn good still but they taper in too much hurt my feet. Have to note that prior to last year they have not seen much action the last 10 years as I have not done any XC. Now I just need to find some new shorts.
