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

My LBS sold me a new pair for $120, some guy had swapped them off of his brand new Trek 1500. Pretty damn good deal IMO.

Yeah, I checked out the eBay ones, they are either used or older versions. Also, the PennCycle one is unfortunately more expensive than what these guys paid here. I'll check out my LBS this Friday.

Sorry to let you know, but your LBS will be priced the same. You'll have to keep watching ebay for someone upgrading and selling their selects.
