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

Toupe is great for me on a bike with a good saddle to bar drop, and if I'm riding hard. If it's a touring kind of bike and ride, I much prefer a Brooks.

The cervelo site had some really great info. Thanks for the tip.

picked up a specialized avatar comp gel today. the folks at the shop were pretty helpful. i took it out for 10 miles tonight and was happy with it. time/miles will tell the whole story, though.

i figure i'll give it a go and if i just can't stand it after a few weeks i'll unload it on ebay and pick up something else.
