ugh.. carbon

don't even have my bike yet because the winter just won't end but the number of carbon parts i am buying for the bike is increasing daily. there is always one more thing i "need".

it is actually difficult to find what i want as most websites are out of stock.

anyway, nothing important, just wanted to tell someone. my GF couldn't care less about my "carbon issues"

Don't worry. It has taken me several years but I have discovered you can run out of carbon fiber items to purchase

OK maybe the rims are left

"I suppose when you run out of things to change to CF you can start adding magnesium, can't you? (If anyone produces anything, that is)

Randrew is a very sick man.....carbon illness morphed into titanium sickness.....and hand milled special bits, etc etc. He is lucky his wife is so understanding.

Hey Randrew....did you get the CF headlight?.....just get the BST wheels, just do it!!

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Headlight cover is on order. Instead of rims I have something else which will save even more weight.

Yeah, been reading Randrew's threads.
enough CF and titanium on his bike to build a space ship.
