Looks like the bike share program might get scraped as the company that was suppose to provide the bikes is filling for bankruptcy.

well Bixi is bankrupt, Devinci was supplier of Bixi bikes, meaning Devinci built bikes for Bixi.

If i recall, Devinci is committed 6mil into bixi program i think

First ride this afternoon since October. Ouch…. The "It never gets easier, you only get faster" line is certainly only accurate when you ride often. Certainly slower and still the same pain. haha

Can't wait to wrap my bars

[edit] so I got hit for duty/tax for the first time. I guess I've been lucky?

Ordered $75 worth of stuff (tire, bar tape, two tubes) from probikekit but customs invoice pbk declared $135.00

Got taxed $16

So your total was $151.00?!? That must be some pricey tire, or at least it is now! Sorry to hear about the duty.

Same thing similar happened to my co-worker. He ordered a sale-priced saddle from PBK and when it showed up, the invoice showed regular priced.

Got nailed for duty, taxes, and brokerage fee (but still came out on top on the cost of the saddle.)

Yea I think my kask says sm/md on it just like dukes.

It's either sm/md or l/xl size choice.

Bc of only two sizes available, for me it ran smaller than my giro medium.

But it fits my dome well.

OMFG I SUCK BAGS AT WRAPPING BARS

Lol. Literally up till 4am rewrapping it over and over. Don't even feel like riding cuz I'm so tired hah

Why is it so hard to get the tape to lay flat? As u wrap around and overlap the tape, it always bulges and doesn't lay flat. Hard to explain

i think that's more or less unavoidable unless the tape is specially shaped to lay flat.
the cinelli tape i had before was shaped so that one end was thicker than the other to make it 'flat' as it wraps around the bars.

for the record i suck at wrapping bars too hah

So I finished it just now. Second side took me 10 mins instead of four hours.

I think I was fatigued last night at 4am and must have been full retard
