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

A NOS Cignal Melbourne Express, which is a comfort tandem bike. The resort I work for bought 7 on a clearance from Joannou Cycles for rentals, which are being converted to single speed from 21 speed. I found out the price and asked for one for myself, of course on the grounds I don't disclose the price we got. I can't find a pic anywhere on the net, but I'll post one when I get mine assembled.

My license renewal. And last week, a set of Fulcrum Racing 7s (in red, of course) for training.

2 quiet generators, Echo power broom set-up, lots of pails, ice melt, back up printer, LLC fees, insurance, book keeping software, some maintenance service on a van, USAC club fees, USAC permit fees... all for promoting the upcoming races.

For my own racing? A BB sensor and rear wheel speed SRM wiring harness, hopefully arriving today.

Yeah, normally with shipping costs I try to make batch orders of stuff I need from other online realtors. Now that I've discovered PBK, I will never say "Maybe I should wait until I need some more things to save on shipping."

It could get ugly, but I will be limiting my purchases with my bike fund plummeting into debt this month.
