8/21/08 / Nashbar

4:35 PM Now that I’m in Boulder, it’s time to get my bike prepared for commuting as well as mountain biking.  I still have my old Velomax wheelset, so I thought instead of getting another cheap bike I can just put cheap tires on that wheelset and make a commuter out of my one bike in a matter of minutes.  To do that, I ordered the following items today from Nashbar.  I bought from them because they had a 20% off deal for orders over $100 (coupon code: PIGGY20).

  • Nashbar Sport Mountain Shoe – can’t find my Time Scolop shoes, so I had to buy a pair of TIME cleats from a local store
  • Nashbar 9 Speed Cassette – for the Velomax wheelset for commuting
  • Continental ATB Tube – need these for the new tires.  I found a Continental Twister Pro at a local store for sale for $19.99.  I’m going to use that and an older Twister Pro for the commuter.  Unfortunately the new one is black only, without the orange stripe my original ones had.
  • Nashbar Wireless Computer – my current Cateye’s not working, so I figured I might as well replace it with wireless.  With this I can track how much I bike in one week, and how many miles I don’t drive.
  • Nashbar Rim Strips – I went on a workshop once and got a flat tire.  One of the guys running the workshop was appalled that the store that sold me my bike didn’t tell me about rim strips.
  • Atb Gel Saddle Cover – For my not-so-comfortable OEM Specialized saddle.  When I bought it this morning it was $3.99.  Now it’s $4.99!
