    I'm getting about 2000 kms out of a GP4000s. They seem to puncture to easy after that.
    The last race of the season I flatted on a 2000 km tire and got a DNF. And I was winning!

    I ride a CAAD10-3 and a Specialized Roubiaix. I rode a "no-name" brand extensively last summer on vacation.

    The pro's don't have to worry about component life.
    And new 1x11 systems get some pretty steep angles on the chain as well with no ill effect.
    I avoid it as I like to get 7000km out of a chain.

    I never thought I would use these things again until I started winter riding. The 80's colors are awesome.

    The shocks in our cars really don't work well at -45. It takes miles to warm them up and the tires are squared. And a bike doesn't have 3000lbs pushing it up and down.

    Gravel "grinding" makes me laugh.
    Since I grew up without paved roads, I guess I was "grinding gravel" every ride. Even when I was on my tricycle.

    I bought these 20+ years ago. I think they were 60 bucks. Double lens, tinted.
    Fan?
    I don't know about the eye glasses though.
    I wear them next to my face or over my balaclava.

    As a side note. We mechanics do not use grinding compound on modern engines. It ruins multi angle grinds and is a waste of time.
    However it is of some use in old lawn mower engines.
