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

Got some new Assos arm warmers and DeMarchi bibs in the mail today. First time for both. I hope I like them.

New plastic strap/adjuster thingy for my Giro helmet. I was getting ready to buy a whole new helmet because of cracked and almost broken part, but the guys in the LBS said they could actually be replaced, and had stock.

Back to the Michelin Krylions cause the Commitalia Caypso's are only last 1K miles.
Lets hope the Taiwan made ones last like the French ones did.

This. http://www.feltbicycles.com/USA/2010...Series/B2.aspx


Oh and fricken 3 pairs of new shoes. The new Specialized double Boa BG S-works shoe in white (can't get away from the Spec shoes. They just fit). Shimano R310s, and a pair of Bont A1s. Selling the Shimanos, just don't fit me well.

And yes, I am fricken broke now. LOL.

^^ That, sir, is one hot bike. I don't own a TT/tri bike, nor do I have much use for one at this point, but I happen to love the way they look. I think I just love the aero-looking features. One of the guys at my LBS occasionally has his SRAM RED equipped Felt DA (not sure about the year, but the CF shows on most of the bike) hanging on the wall in the shop. They had a reception there following "Race Across the Sky", and I couldn't stop drooling over it. *sigh* someday...

Anyhow, cheers, and enjoy.

I'm waiting on an ebay purchase to show up. This specifically:



Its some chinese knockoff, 68 bucks including shipping. We'll see how it goes.

By the way, I don't ride a cervelo... I just like the way this kit looks and I needed some more cool weather stuff. Also, 68 bucks for a jersey and pants w/chamois is cheap!!... right?

Edit:: I live in Northeast Nowhere Nebraska, so no one around here knows what Cervelo is anyway.
