My new Bontrager Race handlebars came today via priority mail. And my new Profile Design threadless adaptor came yesterday. I was a little worried about whether I ordered the right size, but it is perfect. I was surprised how small the box was. But it was in there.

I have some new Cane Creek SCR-5 brake levers coming probably Tuesday. I originally planned to reinstall the diacompe Blaze brake levers. But then I stumbled over these ergo shaped levers. I can’t wait for them to come! I am excited to upgrade the handlebars on my old Trek 1000. I already have some black Bontrager handlebar tape. Part of me is thinking of change the color though. White might look good. But it would probably look dirty quickly. Maybe Red. I had red on there before. Maybe I will stick with black.

I am still keeping an eye out for a carbon seat post, and an Ultegra rear derailleur. The carbon post with help dampen vibrations from the road. Right now I have aluminum fork, frame, seat post, and handlebars. So vibrations would come right up. And I currently have a Shimano 105 derailleur. The barrel adjuster is bent a little. But the thing works well. Maybe I willl just replace the adjuster. But if I find a good deal on an Ultegra derailleur…
