On the bright side, hey, I was excited today when I checked the mail and found my new (to me!) chainrings, shipped from Boulder, CO. They looked like new, really good condition!
I took a few minutes after dinner to throw them on the Ultegra crank, just to see how they'd look.
So, I think it's a pretty cool looking crankset! I like the "Ice" look, as matter of fact, I think the Ice grouppo would be the BOMB on my black and red Giant roadie.
Nah, I ain't springing for it, just sayin'.
My next build will be a Cervelo ultra uber light carbon fiber frame, SRAM groupset and some light 1,400 gram (ish) hoops (well, light, but I still need something sturdy enough to hold my butt!). Yeah, when?? When I get an extra $5 grand to blow, that is! That's all I got for now.
Watch for wrenching Wednesday's post with pics-I'm off work and should have time to do the install and ride it to test her out. I know it will be way way stiffer than the Bonty stuck on there now.
