    Bought myself some 2nd hand Mavic Cosmic Carbons 2 months ago.<br /> <br />Got a Pair of bright jellow thermo gloves and a new yellow Giro skyline helmet.<br /><br />Waiting for a Gp3000 some Vittoria cx'es and lattex innertubes wil be my newyear present.<br /><br />Probabely buy myself another bike as a present for myself looking at a 18 month old aluminum ridley frame with chorus 2000 9-speed gruppo and Open pro wheels a friend has for sale, will go for a testride and probable buy later this week. <br />

    Sound like some pretty sweet toys. <br /><br />As for me, my wife and I found out a few days ago that we have a baby on the way (our first). Our parents think that it is the best damned present they could get.

    Hi Guys<br /><br />A late Christmas wish from me and the family. I hope you all had a wondefull Cristmas where the miracle of the child jesus was celebrated. May you all have a very prosperous cycling year!!!! My new year resolutiona are the following:-<br /><br />1. Lose 20kg in flab<br />2. Do a sub 4H00 ARGUS on the Tandem<br />3. Do a sub 3h30 94,7 on the Tandem<br />4. Register a Professional Technologist<br /><br />As alway I am digressing and in dager of being MOVED!!!!!! by VO2<br /><br />I had to buy myself a new wheelset for the tandem The trusty old Campy Atlantas cracked om the braking surface and you cannot get them anymore. I got myself 40 hole Mount roller bearing hubs by Chosen with DRC rims and 4 cros lacing. Quite spiffy and nice. I will build the front wheel later.<br /><br />I cannot wait for this silly season to end because this was the time of flat wheels!!!!! Had five in one week. Two on the hybrid and theree on the tandem. One was very scary when the fornt got flat (slow punture) and the wheel got away from me in a tight bend. Was almost diappointed I did not faal!!!!!. Broken beer bottles and other rubbish eashed onto the roads by rain caused all this.<br /><br />Keep those wheels spinning!!!!!!!
