About a month ago someone was looking for an older pair of roadie shimano "toe strap" pedals (tried doing a search, couldn't find anything on search results), I think it was Dazzle?
If it was you, Pm me, I have found a pair in my parts bin

Great to see Musket's teammate and my friend Cherise Taylor take out the South African road championships! Congratulations!

Bummer to read that Cath Cheatley crashed while wearing the yellow jersey in the Joe Martin stage race in the US...

But nice to see ex-Wholly Bagels rider Robin Farina - Cath's teammate on Cheerwine - won solo by over 10 minutes to convincingly take the jersey prior to Cath's accident.

Yep, pretty cool to see Cherise take it in a tight sprint from Robyn De Groot. The SA champs has been w huge deal, as SA only has 1 Olympic spot, and the race is tight.

Cool to see Robin Farina win in the US too - I recall seeing some of her suicide breaks in Reading and Philly last year - it's obviously paid off!

Just received these cool spy shots of the 09 prototype Dura-Ace gear. As Musket has said, carbon levers and concealed cables, plus much stiffer chainrings and a slotted and drilled chain...

mmm. So chainring bolts are going to go from bb side directly in to the ring??? Or is there a cunning new method?

I really like the look of those levers.

DOes the fact that I now immediately evaluate hotel rooms on their ability to accomodate servicing up to 7 bikes, and storing those bikes, plus race wheels make me strange?

Even when I'm on holiday?

My current room would be ok. With the bed moved a tad, it'd be perfect. Beer fridge is easily accessible from the optimum stand placement location...

Sounds perfectly normal to me... especially the placement of the beer fridge. In my expert opinion, you need to maintain hydration!

Best room ever was a suite with a large second room for working, a mini kitchen to eat room service in, and a big arse bathroom with a bath, and shower head on a hose. Nice heavy duty shower curtain allowed in house bike washing and cleaning.

Pays to read the whole post before jumping to conclusions as to what you were up to in the shower... :blush:

Thanks for bringing the tone back again. With all those pictures of bikes I was beginning to this this thread had gone a bit off-topic ;-)

grumble grumble... I bought a pair of sunglasses with replaceable lenses at lunchtime, good range of darkness including clear, nice clear peripheral vision because they are frameless, but now I discover that three of the four lenses fit loose in the frame. I can see myself reaching up to take the glasses off and losing a lens altogether.

Fortunately, I bought them from my friendly LBS and I'm sure they'll refund or exchange them for me.
