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

FINALLY! I found a killer deal on these Ritchey Logic Curve UD carbon bars. Been randomly checking Ebay for the off chance that I would find a good deal, but they were $379.99 all day long. The wife was watching some garbage tonight and realized I hadn't checked in several weeks. BOOM first item, my size $179.99 brand new in packaging, free shipping. "Buy it now"....YES PLEASE! Done and Done. super excited.

I bought it for its photochromic lens that change its darkness depending on brightness of the sunlight. As soon as I placed the order I regretted the purchase after seeing comments that recommended only for night riding and not for sunny day, but after testing today these get plenty dark in the sun (and clear for night riding!). Seemed too good to be true for less than $100 but turns out I got lucky. These are unbelievable for entry level glasses.

A Brooks B17n at Frankenbike swap meet Austin TX, looks like never used but some shop wear, half price. I rode a B17 for a couple years, tried a narrow and loved it, now have several.

I paid more than $100 to have transition lenses put on my last pair of Rx glasses.

I must find these swaps around here. What did you swap for to get the Brooks B17N?

My eye doctor said I need a "new frame." I think I got it right. Hope my wife doesn't mind I just following the doctors orders!

new speedplay specific shoes. I'm was going to try to convince the wife that I only paid $250 but she recently bought a purse that cost more than these shoes so I'm good.
