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 googled and found out she is a Star Trek character. Sorry, I stopped watching that show after TNG.

Ultegra 6700 Pedals picked up at Performance for ~$80! Haven't ridden with them yet (will later today), but I figure they probably aren't that much of an improvement over the PD-5610s that they are replacing. Only got them because they were so cheap


The first (and last time) that these pedals will ever be this shiny/clean... hah.

Ear buds rock, could be dangerous though on the road. Might flip the heads.

Bought a pair of Assos FI Unos, though they are in the mail now. From Ribble, the price was pretty comparable to other bibs I was looking at(gore, sugoi, etc).

Still have my eye on replacing my fork in the near future.

Got a pair of theses for the clubs Tuesday, and Thursday evening rides. Tifosi Tyrant Photochromic Sunglasses for the changing light conditions. Should be nice on those overcast days as well.

At that price, I did the same last week. Fortunately mine got through just before the planes were grounded - you could be in for quite a wait.

I am really happy with mine of those. They let enough light through to be good in darkness, yet block enough light in bright sun!

Shimano 105 5610 Pedals


I've liked this jersey for a while and have hesitated to buy it. But for 31 shipped from pbk i had to bite. Mainly the color scheme i liked most about it.
