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

Used Stuff

I hope I didn't screw up but I bought a used Sidi Wire 2 for $325.00. Used twice, it was a bargain I couldn't pass up. Anyone else buy used gear?

I am 100% certain that you are not the first person to buy used shoes. 100%.

If it does not fit, you must-a quit.

I bought a pair of those shoes new for $175. I wore them for a year, then sold them for $325. I told the buyer they had only been worn twice!!!

I will buy used components, shoes, and clothing if the condition is good and the price is reasonable. There are lots of people who don't blink at buying something, trying it once, and then dumping it at a great price to schlubs like me.
