I got some bike parts in. I got a new handlebar to replace the rusty steel one on my old Cannondale. It's like 1/5 the weight of the steel bar and only cost $14. I cut it down to size before mounting it, as I prefer a short handlebar for mostly road riding. I have yet to try it out, but I expect little to change. However, this should reduce the bike's weight down to near 24lbs if I'm guessing right. I'm not much of a weight weenie, but it is nice to have a lightweight bike.
I was going to write more, but that's all I remember.
