    50 sets of the new Dura Ace 7850SL wheels will be at my desk this week...:)
    Not for me though, but I already have a pair, so that's ok.

    Now comes the hard part: getting them onto bikes, and back out the door!

    Send a set my way and I'll save you the hassle of having to put them on a bike, or even opening the box!

    Is there a point here or are you just bragging about fondling the good stuff again?

    Until you can post a "Free Wheels!" thread, or at least a pic, then STFU, biotch.

    :biggrin:

    Not really a point, wasn't trying to brag. Just something I've been working really hard on for a long time finally coming together, so that was pretty exciting, you big smelly jerk! :)

    Funny and weird thing about that is I've got some seriously horrible gas today. I mean that really nasty, dense and eggy kind that just lingers forever. And I AM a cranky jerk 'cuz the weather here sucks (for here).

    :monkeydance:

    Anyway, glad it happened.

    I had that yesterday. Where I was sitting there, and my coworker would walk up, and I'd be thinking "please go away, please go away," because it would be bad new bears if they got another foot closer...

    It snowed here again today, but I kind of enjoy it. If it's going to be cold, I'd rather it be crappy out too...

    Not sure where you are exactly but here in the yay area we've got 40's and rain/hail, with lots of wind blowing crap around and making it feel colder. Pretty much my least favorite weather.

    Forget out the door, just shove a couple off the back of the truck.*

    *preferably in a nicely padded box after telling me the precise locations of the truck at the time of shoving.

    Or just have him shove it off the truck right onto a UPS shipping label with the sticky side up, that happens to have your address on it.

    Isn't it blasphemy to hang Shimano parts on an Colnago? Very sweet.
