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

I have a synapse in the old team color. I think this one looks better. It will look even better when I replace the ugly FSA rings with the spidering.

I have the worst feet for sports. They go numb when snowboarding and cycling because I have serious fit issues.

Going heat moldable boots for board next season. Goo dc to know they exist for this sport too.

I see this thread dropped off the first page again... come on guys, keep those purchases coming!

This just arrived from the bay, I will see how it fits tonight, have seen mixed reports of this and the k-edge fitting the SuperSix, but the price was worth the risk...


And last night I picked up some of these:


And a set of these:

Wow, you have a lot of CAAD's. I like the colors a lot, very similar to the color scheme on the CAAD10. If I get a CAAD10 this year I'll get this color instead of the plain black one.

Obviously. I was commenting the color scheme on the CAAD 10 is very similar, and I like it on both bikes.

Just being clear...
"Wow you have lots of CAAD'S" Doesn't help your statment as being very obvious.
No probs.

New shoes, cleat and pedals. Very happy with all three but the change to cleats with a little less float takes some getting used to.

Sidi Genius Fit Mega (fit much better than the Giro HV), Shimano PD-5700-C and the blue cleats.

so do you carry two extra cassettes, one for flats and another for mountains? then stop and switch them out as the terrain changes?

Good point. I've had cages like that; I hope these don't follow that pattern.
