Nice! Not a big BMC fan but I like that.

A matching Podium bottle, really love the valve system over conventional valves. Now I won't have to pour water from one bottle to another during rides.

Cassette - how is Starbike in cancelling orders? They marked it available but blamed the manufacturer after. I just want to move on

Sent them an email earlier but has yet to respond

How is it?

I have a 40% off on Garmin and thinking on what to get first - rally pedals or upgrade my computer

My Edge 1000 has been going so strong for almost 6 years now and cant find a reason to upgrade

I like it very much. Touch screen way better than my 820, admittedly almost anything would be, and a much improved user interface. Nice big screen although I find the huge bezels puzzling and dated. Excellent battery life, usb-c cable connection. By comparison to to an 8xx or 10xx quite lacking in performance analysis but that's not what it's intended for, it's focused on navigation and it's very good for that. Unlike those other units it's priced quite affordably. Weight 104g :-)

Michelin Cup tires… 23mm labelled but measuring exactly 25 (here overinflated at 7bar rather than 6.4 on the road)in a 19mm inner width rim. So perfect Integration with a 26.4mm with rim.

During my road trip to the alps in July I bought this new dad hat.

Then, when I got back home I ordered an Epic Hardtail to go with the hat. :)
