Archetypes are such a good rim

Ive had my Transition painted in Desert turquoise & finally replaced the pedals with something decent and grippy. Sorry for the potato pictures, I'll get some better ones when my decals turn up.

Still waiting to heal up after knee surgery but I've made another bicycle purchase. I bought the chrome Charge Cooker below for next to nothing from the LBS owner. I'm using it to recover after surgery because the Bianchi isn't comfortable to ride post-op at the moment.

The blender ti is 22lbs now, getting pretty silly. Need to get another thomson post to finish it off

Here are some pics:

Was supposed to be getting the new road bike this week but Enve have done a fucking recall on the forks so gonna have to wait until they get switched out and resprayed. Not had a bike since November, losing the plot sat at home.

Well I've cancelled my order after thinking about what I really needed.....cube cross race arrives tomorrow. Much more suited to the roads & opens up a bridle way route to work also.

Have you got a Feather on the way? Anyone got any tips on a headset expander that will actually work with a Thomson top cap? I've ordered two in at work so far (One23 and some other piece of shit) and both are slipping in my carbon steerer.

I had the same issue. I bought one of those stupid light weight alu ones and stripped it out, tried a couple other expander plugs, everything kept slipping and my headset could never get tight enough. I ended up repalcing it with one of these:

The shop sponsoring our race team is a specy dealer, and we got some great deals on leftover 2015 Tarmacs. I just built mine up, still with the archetypes, but I'll take a pic with the Enve's soon.



First ride today, very different from my Focus. It's stiffer and more responsive, the headtube is a little bigger so I'm up a bit more. Actually think its a little more comfortable overall. It's also very fast despite it being 7.35kg.
