Speaking of upgrades


I put new bars on the Cannondale, in fact they are normal, ergonomic drop bars.  Of course that meant I had to put new tape on the bars as well, so I went with black this time.  I never liked how the LBS did the last tape job.  They did a great job on the tape but they positioned the brake levers just a bit too far forward for my liking.  Doing it myself, allowed me to check and recheck the positioning.

Also, I got a new wheelset for the Cannondale.  They are Aeromax Alloy Wheelset Road Bike Comp 700c Wheels:
Freehub Type:Shimano 10spd
24 spoke aero double wall alloy rims, machined sidewalls and black satin finish
Weight: Front 980g / Rear 1220g
Stainless Steel Black aero 3.0mm spokes

I picked these wheels for durability and the fact that the customer reviews on these wheels were really good.

Now, if we can just get some weather that will dry things up a bit or stay cold to keep everything else from freezing I can take the bike out for a spin.
