Wonder if the animal cops ate the donuts.

They said they were bearly edible....

So, when you use a shipping service (like UPS or the Post Office) there is a fee for that service. That's how it works.

Strange how the obvious isn't always obvious to some. :foo:

Dude.

Do we need to get you forward-facing radar, too?

It doesn't cost $15 to ship a tyre.

Hey MoAlpha - Bike24 has tubed GP5k in stock for ~$33 each, $15 shipping. Seems decent to me, but I'm used to paying bleeding edge tubeless prices.

33 ea is certainly awesome, but I couldn't get the site to quote me $ and the price in Euros was a couple of bucks over Backcountry's price with free shipping on a pair.

I was at a stop light on Richmond Road. Itís where centerville meets Richmond Road. This is the area I call the gauntlet due to the amount of traffic. Anyways, I was behind about 4 cars. Light turns green cars start to move. Iím Primed to start hauling ass, kick off to go miss my clip in look down and BAM! The car enfront of me stopped for no Effin reason. When I hit I instinctly threw my foot down which somehow caused me to raise my frame right into my little soldier, then slowly fell over.

The pain was pretty intense. Once I gracefully walked off the side of the road I made sure nothing was missing. Finished the ride home.


You guys can all learn from my mistakes. Glad to take one for the team.

The vehicle I rented last week had that. I did not put it to the test.

Wait - I'm seeing $45 each at BackCountry. The $33 at Bike24 is each and the $15 shipping is flat, not each (I always buy 3 at a time), so could be considerably cheaper if stocking up. And no, I couldn't get a $ quote, but assumed that the credit card company would take care of that at current exchange rates.

edit: **** - shipping is 20 euro now. I swear it was 15 the other day. :foo:

I put it to the test in my car last week. Scared the living crap out of me.

Exactly, but Bike24 quoted me about 33 € and 19+ € shipping for a total of some 87 € or $92 and change.

I just wish that you would stop teaching us at such a furious pace.

Why? You can't see the clip even if you look down.

I just ordered a pair of 32mm gatorskins, for $33 each, with free shipping. Did I get a good deal? Gatorskins: I am an old man who rides like an old man.
32mm: because I recently decided that when I thin the herd, both the Ironman and the Trek 930 will go. The Trek 414 will easily take 32mm. It will be that, and the 92 Paramount. I can get by with two regular riders. In an emergency I can pull, out the coupled travel bike.

I just donít know why he stopped. I donít go to the front here because then people pass me aggressively to get onto the on ramp. I hate looking like an idiot but m, but oh well, somethings canít be helped.

New stem is dope. Super stiff, and super low. Feels like iím dragging my chin along the ground now. The blender system was a bonus. Was able to mount my garmin unit to the stem, which frees up my mount for the Ritchey. I wish I could mount the light too, like I have it on my Madone, but this is the original blender system so I think you can only mount one or the other.


Yall are going to think I am crazy but Iím gunna order a pair of the carbon bars off amazon. 50 dollars I can swallow, 399.99 for bars I cannot. The bars have solid reviews.

The pedal went vertical and I could get it to give me the correct side so I shot a look down to see which direction the pedal was facing.

The shipping still cost money. The retailer is just not passing the cost....

... oh, nevermind.
