The only thing more obscure and curious than posting in latin is some of the stuff I'm gathering for the shop ---

1) Schmolke. I've always been a fan of this company. CFRP specialists. Finally got around to getting a dealership with them. So, we'll be stocking a <very> few of their choice goodies.

- Carbon screws. Why? When you're finished scraping your toe jam and callouses to remove that last milligram of weight there is yet ONE MORE THING. Yes, the screws! besides, they don't corrode, and that should be reason enough to explain to your spouse.

Screws weigh less than a single tooth, so you can keep your teeth and just buy a few of these instead!
Price: 1200 yen EACH​

- TLO <anything>. TLO in German means 'The Lightest One'. A couple of the items are really special. I'm especially attracted to the TLO SL oversize handlebar and the TLO seatpost. Why not? When you can buy a barset and seatpost that costs MORE than your frame, then you've finally joined 'the club'.

TLO Bar (about 140gr) Price: 65,000 yen + tax

..and the post (about 100gr) Price: 54,000 yen + tax

Hmm, so the awful German language turns out not to be quite as hard to comprehend as Mark Twain suggested.

When you can buy a barset and seatpost that costs MORE than your frame, then you've finally joined 'the club'.

Er, shouldn't that be: "When your barset and seatpost cost more than other people's frames, ...."? (Your own frame would be in desperate need of an upgrade.)
