  1. My "designed and tested on deployment" Marine Raider watch finally arrived. Nice packaging and a couple of strap options. I think this will be a great Ti beater for the summer when I do not want to wear the other beaters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Built up a sweet bike today for a gift. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I assume everyone but Brent will be purchasing the new "must have" trainer for their bike rooms? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Maybe they had to make it faster so owners could more quickly get it through the neighborhood and into the garage before neighbors noticed what a stupid looking car they drive.

  6. These were on two different sets of wheels, but the Litespeed was pumped up directly before the ride and I just picked up a thorn or stone that gave me a small puncture. The other one was shitty Illinois roads and a bad tube install.
  7. The funny thing is that these two flats were my second and third ever. Today's was a slow leak as I probably picked up some debris and it took some time to go low. The one before that was a pinch flat as I think the shop did not do a great job in setting up the new wheels/tires.
  8. Another ride, another fucking tire blowout, this time on the Litespeed and 12 miles from home. At least had tube this time. I think the bike thing is done for me now. New hobby upcoming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Technically, I am only using one Mad Fiber wheel on the trainer bike, so I think your math is off.
  10. I have several (one) bikes that have their stock wheels on them, and none of them but the fat bike are beaters like this bike.
  11. ^Exactly. This is a beater bike and the wheels fit it perfectly.
  12. Put on the shim and FSA seatpost. Now this bike rides as nicely as I remember the DeSalvo rolling. Shaved a few ounces off from the tree trunk of the seat post I took off as well. Somehow managed to shave 8 seconds off my PR on my neighborhood climb so those few ounces must have been some really heavy ounces. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hmmm, should I just get one for each floor of my house Brent? REI Garage Sale Kick'r again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Managed to make it 6 miles into my first ride on the new wheel/tires this morning before having a lovely pinch flat and finding the seat bag I swapped from the Litespeed had everything but the tube I needed to fix the problem. I love walking in cleats.
  15. My general advice to anyone is to get the highest end model, whether you need it or not.
