When my advance tax refund check comes here shortly it's purchase time. So it's either a new wheelset or a bunch of odds and ends.Speeddreams or Zipp 303's? Have you been thinking about what to get? It's Christmas in July at my house. Forget the mother-in-law on kidney dialysis and the kids' school clothes. I'm looking for something early. What's on the top of your list?

Since I did get a new bike this spring this money is at my loving wife's discretion.

I got a new Steelman SR with (mostly) Dura-Ace components last month. I guess the rest of my year is the usual begging for other stuff like jerseys/shorts and a new pair of SIDI's...

Millions of letters were sent out promising the max amount of money but many won't get as much as promised. Also if your social security # ends in 90-99 you are supposed to get your money soon. Who knows when the rest of us will get our cash! We may have to wait for "Christmas in Decemeber" for our cash. IT IS GOOD TO DREAM! Its nothing short of a dream to think that money is coming to us soon.

It should not be a dream to expect a return on our investment. The more one pays in the more one should get back. I'm going to do my best to reinvest. Already have that new Mondonico frame on layaway!

IRS must install new software in order to get checks out. Anyone who's been involved with a major software install knows how well that usually goes. Good luck... maybe you'll get your check in time for Christmas next July.

That having been said... my vote goes for a new set of wheels, or a DA drivetrain.
