Bike #1 is out of the shop and it's fabulous. The rear wheel had blown the rim and I had the drivetrain upgraded as well:
Mavic Speed City wheels
Shimano Ultegra crankset and bottom braket
Shimano XT cassette
My crappy old deore and tiagra derallieurs look pretty shabby next to the new parts and I'm going to upgrade them as soon as I can but this isn't the bike I'm taking on tour so it's going to have to wait.
My new shoes are in and I'm going to run over to REI after work to go get them. I'm currently using Shimano R151's with my road pedals and I totally hate them. Mostly, it's because the carbon sole doesn't have any kind of protection at the heel and the carbon has worn off in sheets because of it. Also, they're clunky and the wide velcro strips look terrible and are difficult to close properly. I'm getting Sidi ZETA shoes and I'm really excited about them because they look SO much cuter and everybody I know who has them loves them. They aren't carbon but I really don't care.
