70" Samsung Series 7 4K Smart TV. While not directly cycling related, this purchase made my wife happy and allowed us to move a now surplus 50" LED TV into our 'trainer' room for use with Rouvy. :D
Nicely done. When I moved a few months ago, I upgraded the 72" Plasma older than dirt TV in my bedroom to an 80" LED, so the plasma became the "trainer monitor". I also have to watch tv now from the driveway across the st as the new tv is so huge in my bedroom :welcome: :beerchug:

POC Ventral Air Spin helmet in Raceday white to replace the old white Octal.
How do you like it?
I realy like the octal, but after 5 or 6 years it is time for something else. Why did you buy thr air over the normal ventral?

Not received yet! Should have written "Ordered a..".
I have a black Ventral for our rather austere yellow and black club kit and some tops that don't blend well with white. I chose the Ventral Air because I need good low speed ventilation in afternoon furnaces like the Alpe d'Huez and the west side of Col St. Martin, both which I tend to end end up at in in July in years when the world hasn't come to a corona-stop.
I hope it fits (but it should).

Did not really need one but it was 70% off so I had to buy it :) . Never had a skinsuit before, it's really tight. Image

I've been using an Octal for about 3 years, and I like the Ventral Air even better. The Ventral Air has all of the things I like about the Octal but seems to have a better fit, doesn't interfere with my sunglasses as much, in part because of a slightly smaller profile. I got the Air instead of the Ventral because it is plenty warm here and I'll take all the air flow I can get.

Sure is. Stem will match with his post and bars that I've got. One more part to come once production starts. Hopefully not to long to wait.

What part? Do you mean shifter clamps?

Yep, just waiting on Shimano. Already have Schmolke clamps but these will be a few grams lighter.Image
