@ hammertime: i am trying to keep the full shimano going,however those levers look fantastic
if i had a pair i would proberly build a bike around it
however i already have a SR11 bike so its all good
kind of think of it:

i got me some carbon speedlimit brakes and some Ti sti 7900 barclamps for the sr11 ergo
the skeleton brakes did not stand out enough and the btp ergo clamps are made out of poo

a light bike does make you go faster unless you are slow

you mean my special-edition, color-matching, limted-issue, red valve caps.
they are less than a gram per pair and keep the valve clean.

but you are right, most do without. must have some aerodynamic disadvantage.

Wow, that Cateye is impressive, even tells you what you are doing at the time to keep a track on you.
dýou think it also has a "shag" setting as well as a "sleep" one :lol:

Got some 2ti candy pedals the other day for my mtb. Renewed my membership with local cycling org. tonight. I have been pinching pennies saving for my new road bike which will be here next week.

UPS jacked up the load bars. As I got them via eBay cheap, won't go that route again (not available often).

Ordered Thule 400XT towers with Volvo S60 specific fit kit (like Volvo, uses factory mount points) and think they'll be better being metal versus plastic for the Volvo OEM.

Sometimes saving a few bucks just isn't worth the hassle!
