Your list says ritchey seat post, but it looks like a 3T? Not a big deal at all, just something that caught my eye.

Nice nice

Nice bike. I like the fact of supporting your local drugstore. But why no vredestein tyres then? :D

Agree on supporting the local scene. Personal choice for sure, but it's nice to see.

Rear Tube is now a Vredestein Fortezza. Other Fortezza tube on stock. Veloflex are very durable, but also quite expensive. A veleflex carbon tube (street pricing) is 2 ties the price of a Vredestein Fortezza. And you are right. Vredestein also produces top class tubular tyres!
