^ Generic Specialized tubes actually--I'm usually the late adaptor, lol. Those Neutrons are the older clincher-only style.

Here's my ride. I love how it looks, rides and is so low maintenance.

 

Waiting for some Continental Gator Skins and Vittoria Randonneurs. The rear Vittoria Zaffiro Pro got trashed in less than 200 kilometers of riding with light skidding.

 

Going to do something about the riser bar eventually.

Good for you, dude.

 

 

Here are my last two rides. The first two pics of Monday's MTB ride, with a close up of the last 2/3 of the Maunawili trail. The last is of today's road ride which passes the trailhead (indicated by arrows green-plus).

Very inspiring, pigmode... I want to move to HI! biggrin.gif I see you have Amarra open and was likely enjoying some great music. But, I also see Finder-Mail-Safari-Google open as well. blink.gif No dedicated music sessions?

I must have been listening to my UE700 directly plugged to the MBP, as my main system has been down for a couple of weeks. No dedicated server yet, but I will probably go with a Mac Mini when the time comes.

I like the little one... been serving me well the last 18 months. Although, the end of March I gave the SqueezeBox Touch a workout. Returned it the following day. It has good potential and so sounds ok stock, but would really need tweaking for my taste. I knew this going in but after making a closer assessment, I realized after modding it I'd still want a linear power supply or custom battery supply solution for it. And didn't have the money. Plus, it wouldn't trump the tweaked mini I have now which is also waiting for a linear power supply or custom battery solution. It represented a sideways move, so I decided to get my money back.

 

Currently, the mini is waiting on another platform tweak (Macsandwich from Mach2music) and then brass footers in June.

Looking at the current technology, I plan to stay with a computer server for a good long while. Nice isolation.

I like the convenience and find the SQ good enough for now. SSD prices are going down, and I expect to switch next price drop.
