What Else Did You Just Buy For Your Bike? Thread Thread Thread..... Thread

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I didn't need it but when a good deal falls in the lap you gotta take it. If anyone is interested in gobbling the cobbles or needs a cool new handlebar let me know since I am going with an alternative bar and possibly a new seatpost.

How much does it weigh? Is the steerer full carbon or is it a carbon-wrapped alloy tube thing?

Early 2000's judging from the red, white, blue made in USA logo.

560g as is. It's going to go on a significant steerer diet when it goes on a bike of my size. Carbon wrapped alloy tube.
I haven't seen a full carbon steerer wound-up w/o the insert actually. People nowadays usually opt for a more modern fork such as from enve.

New Specialized roubaix bib cause I lost my old one. This one is nicer and I got for less than $70 thanks to my LBS. Support your local bike shop and they will support you.

Bought V-brake calipers for my MIELE MTB drop bar touring/gravel bike. I replaced the cantiler calipers with t he V-brake ones and VASTLY improved the braking. I think the drop bar brake levers i had on it were for V-brakes. It also has interrupter levers on the top of the handlebar.

Cheers

Used Trek 1.1 (I gave in and got a geared road bike) Which needs the following parts:
28mm Panaracer Paselas in skinwall
44cm FSA Omega compact drops and some new Cinelli bar tape
25mm setback Uno carbon post to replace the 15mm setback one it came with
....and probably a 120 or 125mm stem

Stopped at my LBS today on my way back from my ride today and my buddy who works there was working on his Specialized Allez and gave me his S-Works 140mm stem. Upgrade from my 120mm Deda Big Logo stem. Stoked.

Nice. I'm interested in these and started a thread...

Please let me know how they fit - loose or tight, how heavy you load them and if you experience any sagging or chafing.

They are sold out of the lower priced Core model in my size and I'm on the list to be notified when they are back in stock.

A Cane Creek 40-series IS41 upper headset assembly in red. I've never seen a Cane Creek 40 in any color other than black. Couldn't pass up this piece of bling for the Trek.

Picked up a 2009 Jamis Sputnik off CL today for $150. Reynolds 631 steel and factory Easton CF fork. Thinking I'll probably build it up and give it to one of my brother in laws so that we can ride together.
