A new Simplon Lumen alloy frame that I don't really need......... 8) :lol:
It's going to replace this peice of junk BMC promachine I've been riding for the last year or so.
I've decide I want to go back to something stiffer as the BMC is a noodle.
The price of the Simplon was a major factor in me buying it too, as it was crazy cheap.
Should have landed at Heathrow cargo terminal last night.
Photos to come in the next few days. :thumbup:

HED Stinger 6 Flamme Rouge wheels.

Got them from the Aus distributer at US parity prices. I initialy ordered the standard Stinger 6's, but some guy ordered the FR's and changed his mind at the last minute for some standard Jet 6's. So he offered me these for an extra AU$50. (yes that is a $50, not a typo). So of course I said yes straight away.

Total weight without skewers was a little over claimed at 1318g.

Also in the mail to go with the new wheels were a pair of Evo CX II's 23mm, swiss stop yellow pads, conti giro tubular (to be carried as a spare while riding to races in case of a flat), 40mm Vittoria valve extenders, and 2 x tubes of Mastik 1

3 pair of the new Vittoria tubulars and the new Assos bibs. It's now safe to suck my wheel again. No more holes in my bibs :beerchug:

TIME RTM Stem for my VXRS:

The cap inside is removeable...does it need to stay there? Or is it just for them to help identify at a glance which size the stem is?

my purchase for the day. From the look and feel of it, it should be a comfortable saddle. I'll just make sure to bring an allen key with me on the first couple of rides :lol:

If you are interested in a Weight Weenies kit I no longer know what you should do.
