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

to replace



I'm currently debating whether to buy a scandium 26" hardtail frame from my new sponsor for importer cost, or to buy a Giant 29er complete bike.

In 172.5, now my setup is full Ultegra 6600 and my cranks are the same length as all my mountain bikes. No more cheap bike pulloff cranks for me any more. Now I just need to get a bottom bracket, is Dura-Ace worth it over Ultegra?

I got it from my local shop. I'll be using it with Red levers but not a Red crankset.

I saw rodiejorge's capo jersey and had to have one. Also got a deal on the Cannondale Classic bibs, which is good considering the price of capo.

How much did these run you? A pretty penny I'd imagine considering how much the jersey cost. But I'd bite the bullet on these, for sure. On a lighter note, I picked these up last week.

Jokers sent me a recalled fork. Now I got to get it taken care of before I build it up. I ordered a 3T ARX Team stem today too.

a '89 Bianchi Equinox mint condition. I rode it ten or so miles today and that is likely further than the original owner rode it in the last 20yrs.
