A pair of the out of production Comète Ultimate with carbon shell.
249g in 42 2/3 (here weighted with 83g cleats)

The quality of the entire package is quite something and if they fit you they are amazing. Fantastic ankle freedom and remain incredibly stable during pedal stroke.
When walking I had heel moving a lot but while pedalling nothing.

With 83g cleats installed.

Is that the Cannondale aero spider on the Hollowgrams?

It wasn't today or yesterday, but about a week ago I got a Chapter2 Koko frameset and transferred everything from my old faithful Tere. It rides like a dream and as a short rider (5'7", 64kg), for the first time I can finally feel vertical compliance from a road bike frame. I used to run 65psi on the rear wheel, now I can run at 70psi and it's still more comfortable than the Tere.

The seatpost does look kind of off, but it's functional and the look grew on me. In any case, I am making a seatpost sleeve that will function/look like the new Canyon Aeroad. Deep section on top and little D shape on the bottom, with integrated Garmin Varia mount.

It is in fact the aero spider on there. It was a toss up between running a digrit carbon ring on the aero spider or the garburak single ring.

Let there be light


Not't really weight weenie, but the amount of light is awesome. I mostly use it in smart mode.


Smart Mode light sensor monitors ambient light to adjust light output accordingly
The Recon 1800 can pair with ANT+ compatible computers to view battery information on the computer screen.*
ANSI certified lumens and run time
Focused optics with side light design for over 270-degrees of visibility
Heat-dissipating CNC-machined aluminum casing
Power status indicator alerts remaining run-time before powering off
Includes adjustable GoPro mount
*Giant recommends operating the HL1800 in manual mode when using Garmin computers.

Size: 103x32x47mm
Weight: 190g without mount
Colors: Black
Output: 1800 lumens
Runtime: High (1800LM) 1.5hrs, Middle 3.5hrs (900LM), Low 7hrs (450LM), Smart Mode Day (100LM>450LM) 40hrs; Smart Mode Night (900LM) 3.5hrs, Flash (100LM) 65hrs
Battery: Li-Ion polymer battery (6400mAh)
Water resistance: IPX6
Certifications: ANSI-Standard FL-1

Regarding Garmin: ... jDph6tA877

Read it like this- buy our lights.

*How I paired the Recon HL 1800 with my Garmin

You need to pair the light first like you would any other sensor, which creates a 'light network', and then configure a data page or field if you want one on your chosen profile. You don't need one though – you can see a five-point battery indicator on the Garmin's sub menu – and in the light network settings you can select how it powers on (either by turning your Garmin on or by starting a ride) and what mode you want to run it in.

In essence, you lose the ability to control the light manually from its power button, so I chose to run it in 'individual' mode, activating when I started a ride and switching off when I ended it. This gave me control over the brightness setting when the head unit was on.

With its published advice, Garmin might simply be covering itself in case any faults were to develop with either device, but it is indicative that the link might not be bulletproof or fully approved by Garmin's third party policy. To be safe, given that my personal 520 Plus was on the line, I chose to remove the connection once I had established that it worked, given that I consider it more of a 'nice to have' than an essential function. ... 800-279965
