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

@Jed19: I have pearl izumi bibs and shorts and I love them. Wen I found this company through an ad in FB, I was sceptical at first. So I bought long sleeve jersey and pants, both in thermal and regular along with a set of Garmin Barracuda set. When I got them... Can't tell the differences in the material only the tag was not labeled Pearl Izumi.

the Garmin Barracuda set, I compared it to my customer, Barracuda Networks, original version and its the same. Except my customer was going to sell me the set for $250 when I only paid $50.

I'm not saying buying counterfeit is good or not, but remember all these high priced jerseys are make in China or somewhere in Asia. So if the QC does pass, of course these clothing manufactures will sell them at cost or with some marked up profits. Not trying to start an argument or anything, but just sharing my opinion.

if you do plan on buying, remember to buy one size up. I usually wear Small, so when ordered M it fits perfectly.

ruirui, I just checked out some of the stuff. Ridiculously low prices, but I wonder about sizing. Are these all counterfeit, made by the same manufacturer, or are they rejects (or whatever you want to call it) from many companies? Because some of the "legit" stuff is Pearl Izumi (for example), while others are Castelli, while others are Sportful. Each of these companies stuff fit differently, I am a medium in PI, but an XL (!!!) in Sportful. So do all these size discrepancies play out through this stuff, or is it all manufactured by the same company, regardless of what "brand" they are supposed to be? Bottom line, if I order one size up, regardless of what I'm buying, it should all fit the same?

Also, how's the chamois in the shorts?

I just got an order for a couple of ultegra cassettes, excellent price, delivered in <1 week. They're maybe not as free with their coupons as they used to be, but I still find them worth ordering from at least a few times a year.

@cthenn: sorry for the late reply. just got back from biz trip in Calgary. been off the bike for 3 days.. glad to be out riding again! here's a couple shot of the Garmin Barracuda set I bought from that site. see photos below:



as for the padding, i like it. it's not too thick and no gel either. most of all it doesn't bunch up and snag you in spots you don't want when wearing it naked.

oh.. and another suggestion: when washing all types of jerseys, i'd suggest going to a Daiso or those asian store and find yourself a laundry bag. then u can put ur jersey and bibs, shorts whatever inside and zip up before washing it in cold water. also.. NEVER put into dryer.. i always just hang it and let it air dry afterwards. doing so will help increase the life of the jersey and most of all the spandex and rubber part where the leg part is for the shorts to keep the it riding upwards on your thighs.

Does the 510 mount on the same mounts designed for the 500?

Crap, saw it a couple of hours ago discounted, now back to regular price! WTH??

Yeah, that's messed up, I bought the 810 nav bundle plus an extra cadence for $425. Must have been a glitch?

Not 100% cycling-related, but theclymb.com has 20% off everything with an invite from a member. Just picked up a Suunto Ambit (Usually $500) for $270. PM me for an invite -- I think the offer runs through June 30.

Hoping I could get some advice, as my bike was stolen last week in Georgetown, DC (yellow 2008 Raleigh rx 1.0, great bike). I am thinking about getting this partial bike on ebay and putting the rest together; it's just for exercise so I think with average components I could complete it for $200-250. The bike is $375 right now with shipping, looks like a great buy but I thought I'd get another opinion as I am relatively new to all this. Thanks! Here it is-- http://www.ebay.com/itm/Specialized-...-/200937287028

Wiggle Coupon Code?

Hopefully this is not a faux pas, be here goes it.

Does anyone have a valid coupon code from Wiggle? I'm looking to pick up a few things, and a decent code would help me out a bit.

Probikekit has a 15% off coupon for purchases above 100£ plus free shipping to the US. Or, they also have a 3 Shimano items for the price of 2 sale as well.
