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

Hm, new SRAM Red OG 1090 cassette, new SRAM 1091 chain and a gaudy looking pearl izumi jersey (on closeout). That was last week.

TOnight, new Selle Italia SLR Flow max L something or other. I'm really looking forward to that one.

Record EPS V2 upgrade kit, can't wait for it to arrive. Sold my old dérailleurs, shifters and a couple of laptops I didn't need and got the whole kit for $1,700 as an open box item so my net cost was $400...

I just picked those up but in 25c (but waiting for the current tires to wear out before changing).

well.........after four years of being without a car (my wife and I would share hers) I've been commuting exclusively on motorcycles. Took up cycling a few months ago, and tho my wife was a good sport about me always asking to use her car to take my bicycle to the trail, PLUS have a bike rack always on it.

I bought this...............it's a fun little car too. GOt a great deal as it was a leftover!

Just ordered these for new Felt F4 and also have a set of 6800 pedals on the way. Will give the Prologo saddle a try but most likely will buy another Kurve Snake as well.
Bars are SLC2's

It is, I got one without the side stripe. Fiat brought in way too many abarths late in 13, now they're selling them at huge discounts (anywhere from 5-8K off msrp)
