2x 35mm Ti bolts for my seatpost and a set of KCNC chainring bolts. Minimal weight savings but either way it's a weight saving, not sure how much though yet.

Bought a lot more equipment than I can really justify right now. Some for my WW bike, some for my "TT bike" I rebuilt using a Giant OCR frame.

Ambrosio Nemesis, FMB Paris-Roubaix 27mm. DT Swiss 240s hubs. Sweet wheels! Can't wait to try them out on the road asap. And.. the large tires cleared the fork on my Ultimate AL..! Excited.

Ritchey WCS Echelon pedals. Like them better than my old KEO Sprints they are replacing, but I'm very disappointed with the weight.

Box said 230g, scale said 254g. Solid pedal, but not saving me any weight.

Over the last two weeks... Parlee Z5 M/T, New Ultimate seatpost, Easton EC90SL stem (needed a bit more drop, so going from 6 to 10deg. would put me exactly where I want to be), Arundel Mandible cages... Yeah, I know... pictures... give some time to put it all together will you! :lol:

First bought these (Bontrager RL), but couldn't stand them:

So I took them back and exchanged them with these (thanks Bontrager for the Comfort Guarantee!):

First ride is tomorrow, hopefully the Sidi will work out better. They are replacing a pair of Specialized Pro shoes.

Time to start hitting some more technical features on the bike. Not a full-on DH helmet, but a little extra just in case. Oh, and it's made with Earth friendly fibers. Nice.

Got some new Shimano MO87 wide fit shoes today, to replace my shim lace up's which have given a decade of valiant service. Lighter, and stiffer with a snazzy buckle. Oh Shim, I hate yer groupsets,but I love yer shoes.

Was in Rapha Cycle club London yesterday, so more as a souvenir more than anything else I picked up some overpriced nonsense.
Was online on Competitive cyclist and picked up some underpriced common sense at $27.50 a pair. A Brace picked up for the summer here in the UK.

A new camera! I've been using a Panasonic LX3 for a while, lovely camera but technology moves on so I ebayed it. Today I have its replacement, a Fuji X10.
