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

Your going to kill me, I bought mine at an LBS in town who sold a bike that came with that saddle but the owner wanted a different saddle so they swapped it and put the Fizi:k on sale as a turnout saddle, I paid $29!! The best deal I have ever found at any LBS.

That is a good deal! That being said, I would pay near $150 Canadian for the saddle here, so I'm happy paying half in US.....

Change my 12-28 105 cassette to an 11-28. Rocked the hill climbs in my group. NO MORE BEING LEFT BEHIND FOR ME! Still need to challenge myself on a mountain though.

This thread sure slows down when we can all actually ride our bikes instead of just buy stuff for our bikes.

Elite Paron bottle cages. These work great for small frames because you can get the bottles in and out from either side as well as the front. We shall see if they hold the bottles well enough. The bottles seem tight when fully inserted.

After I lost a bunch of weight riding a bike I was down to 185 and bought some nice kits. then I dropped to 145 and am still wearing a couple of those kits, so I'm slowly replacing them all - expensive so it takes time. I also don't like wearing my team kits every day... change it up, you know!?

Got this yesterday, have another of the same jersey in black. Q36.5 bibshort and jersey.

another one of these. Got a black one for the wife's bike and I thought it was the most comfortable seat I have tried to date.. and I've tried a lot of them. This white one is for me. 140g at 148mm wide is pretty good in my book.

I picked this up at Clermont Bicycles... The thing is tiny. Hex keys, screwdrivers, bottle opener and CO2 adapter. I added a quarter so you can see how tiny it is.

Nothing new, I just love the layout/design of this book. Great for a newer rider.

I detailed my buddies Suburban and car for him last week because he was wanting it done. I used to detail cars on the side so I have the equipment and product to do so. I was doing it because my wife and kids were out of town for 2 weeks and I figured he has done so much to help me over the years (He works at my LBS and gets me everything at his discount). So I went into the shop yesterday to see what was up and he got me the Rapha Jersey and Matching gloves to say thank you. I ordered the shorts and will get the oakleys shortly. Been wanting this kit for a long time now.
