PIECES PARTS

You gotta love Ebay I tell ya. I got these for less than 1/2 of what cost is at the shop and they are brand spanking new! Campy Ultra Torque's baby, I had carbon's on the S-Works though. I skimped on the brakes though, for now. I am putting some el cheapo tektros on it until I can find some Circus Monkey brakes at a price I can afford. They are black and blue (they have other colors too) and will really go well with the color scheme of the Race Master. Not that I will do any better but at least I will look good while I suck riding it (insert goofy grin here).
Well 2009 has came and is almost gone (7 more hours), my life has had some crazy up and downs this year for sure. Laid off, called back to work for 4 weeks then let go, starting school unable to keep my unemployment because of being a student, It definitely got to me there at one point but God, my son, all my friends and my cycling addiction got me through it and I'm grateful to everyone for everything. Thank You! I hope everyone is able to live better, grow themselves and have a wonderful new year. "If opportunity knocks at your door - open it up" is the advice I'm giving everyone for the new year. Happy New Year and God Bless you all ! ! !! ! !

Campy?.......really?
I have to admit that Circus Monkey is a pretty BA name.

Josh, always Campy! I used to use Dura-Ace but rode Campy one time and switched!

the brakes do have a unique name

How do you like the Circus Monkey brakes. Thinking about gettin a pair, but don't know much about the. They look great.

Im on the fence on them, they stop like zero gravitys i hear, not so good. I still haven't bought them but a guy I talked to didn't give them high marks other than them being REALLY COOL looking. I'm trying to find someone that has them actually installed so I can test for myself, so far none have rolled through the shop :(
