Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Roubaix guy - where would I buy that extender you have your Garmin mounted on? That's a nice feature to have.

Nice ride, BTW.

Nice ride ekimyel. That's a Toupe saddle right? I hope this ain't too personal, but how's your ass doing on that thing? I was considering picking one up.

Thanks man. Yes it's a Toupe Gel. It's great. I have an specialized alias on my old bike that I like as well. Either one I highly recommend. I went through many saddles before I finally tried some of the specialized BG saddles. I love them....

In '06 the Vigor and Vigor RS were the same thing, but on the RS model, the rear rim had additional material for rougher roads & heavier riders.

Yeah, I hope nobody opened the door.

BTW, that looks like a DA crank now.

New Ride


Finally picked a new ride after hours of test riding. Good fit. I can stretch out and the 7 cm drop is comfortable.

grahny. I like the custom spacer.
