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

Nice stem, but please... white garage door? I'm undecided if that's your shed or your dungeon.

2009 Fuji Newest 3.0

Just about done changing some of the nastier stock parts. Tires are Hutchinson Fusion 2 Kevlar Pro Tech, FSA stem, changed from the disgusting and heavy adjustable stock one, saddle is a Forte Pro SLX, Shimano 600 8 spd cassette, Shimano IG-70 chain, Shimano 105 rear derailleur, some generic Forte pedals with toe clips, and a Cat Eye Mity 8 cyclocomp. Oh, and I removed my in-line brake levers; now the cockpit isn't such a cluster****.

i love them. certainly recommended. not super flashy, but at the price i got them at w/ team discount, there's no reason not to have them on all my bikes. race wheels, training wheels, road wheels, cross wheels, there's one to do it all.

My husband has flown his hang glider off San Marcos Pass Rd. but we've never ridden our bikes up it.

We're riding from SF to SB in Oct., might have to tackle it then. I love the view from the top.

Nice bike, btw.

Thanks. This was up at the top of Coyote Canyon on E Mountain. It's easily my favorite ride around here. I'm still building up to the full Gibraltar to San Marcos loop, but it will happen. I'll take some pictures from up there too.

Red Rider: Either by the shore, on Mountain Dr, or on E Camino Cielo, I think you'll have a great time any way you go.

New here, and new to road biking, so I just bought my first road bike.

2007 Lemond Buenos Aires. All stock except I've upgraded the saddle to an SMP Strike Evolution

Ultegra brifters and rear derailleur
105 brakes and front derailleur
Bontrager race wheelset
Pretty much Bontrager everywhere else, too ... lots of B's on this bike
