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 Magicshine MJ-880 U2 headlight. The sucker is small but it's as bright as a car's high beam. A car even highbeamed me back last night when I was out riding past dusk.

The reason why I got my 11 Allez was it has the world champion colors/stripes running down the seat tube.

Finally got some lycra cycling shorts. Now I don't look like a total Fred when I'm riding with my group.

Being the top-shelf gear guy that I am , I bought a used set of Tektro linear brakes, off ebay, for my 27 year old mountain bike.

How do you like yours? I bought the Park Tool PCS10 from Performance today with 20 percent off. Still debating if I should open the box and start using it or wait for a used one on CL. I am poor!

So far, I like it. That may not tell you much as I only used it for 20 minutes to lube the chain and install a mounting bracket for my frame pump this afternoon. It's lightweight, stable and easy to use, though.

I cannot wait to see an actual picture of the bike. I'd love those colours on my bike.

It came with Obands and zip ties and after feeling the tension from the obands, i put the zip ties as extra strength. heres some pics of the packaging and the mount.

Please bear with this newbie. What's the difference between 110 and 90? What do those numbers mean?
