Mark_A_W has also built a tab welder that you may find useful.

I stupidly signed up for road the bay this year, so the limitted time I get to ride these days is on my road bike too. Trying to coax my body back into some sort of shape.
Are the fancy wheels worth the cash. I only have cheap wheels on mine, and never ridden anything worth much.
Also like the ANT+ kit. I have been using a cheap heart rate monitor to make sure I train properly, and found it really useful. I also threw a cheap bike computer on the cranks to check my cadence. But would be great to have everything in one unit. What sort of data can the app collect? Can it log elevation, heart rate, etc. as well?

Funny you should mention headphones. I just got some new ones to use on the bike. They are Sennheiser PMX 680i for about $100. Really good so far. They have a neck band and hold the buds in the ear, but not jammed down your ear canal so you can hear ambient stuff better. Got the mandatory iphone controls/mic, sounds quality is pretty good, sweat proof, don't fall out.
Here is a random photo of how they sit.
What do you find you look at on the flash bike computer the most when riding? I have been trying to train to a heart rate at the moment. So pretty much ignore speed, and just try to keep my heart at ~140bpm to build aerobic fitness. And now that I know what 80rpm and 90 rpm cadence feels like, I hardly ever look at that. Then I just check average speed at the end to see how I faired.
