I haven't. Should of course have had a Gabba jersey or maybe a convertible since it's "Norwegian", but no.

Started out thinking full Chorus and just wanted to upgrade for the heck of it. I spent an extra $150 for the Record ergos and rear derailleur because I thought they'd be the best bang for my buck. Mostly vanity though, really.

I never took drugs to improve my performance at any time. I will be willing to stick my finger into a polygraph test if anyone with big media pull wants to take issue. If you buy a signed poster now it will not be tarnished later. --Graeme Obree

Chris.


$229 from JensonUSA. Not bad. Most places I found were $339, but I was able to shave $10 off with a price match to some store I found on Google Product Search. Couldn't find any significant deals and needed the shoes because my Nike MTB shoes had the carbon sole start cracking on them.

Bont CTT-3 shoes from excel sports, $92 shipped :) So far, they look great, high quality construction and I can't believe how stiff they are! The heel cup is perfect! Haven't heat moulded them yet, but I'm very much looking forward to it... Pictures once I get my new ultegra carbon pedals and have a chance to put some miles in!!
