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

What's your next road bike related purchase?

What's your next road bike related purchase?

Or what's on your wish list?

I need a truing stand, and possibly look at getting new crankset and pedals.

Wheels. Something handbuilt, with Record or Chorus hubs and a Velocity Aerohead rims.

That's what I WANT. What I'll probably get is a new long sleeved jersey.

I guess my next purchase will be an entry level roadbike.

They have pretty good deals on the Trek 1000's at the LBS. Should be a little easier to ride than the walmart $59 special I have been starting on.

lol

I just bought a pair of Campy Zondas for a second wheel set - training mainly.
But they will go on a Fuji SL1 that I just bought. This bike will be complete with Campy Record carbon, including skeleton brakes, Fizik Arione saddle, Ritchey WCS carbon seat post, bar, and stem and a set of Pinny carbon Charismas.

This leads me to my next bike related purchase: Computer and pedals.

I'm so freaking excited! I have been riding and racing with an old, cheap, heavy C'dale that's slightly too big. So it's going to be heaven on earth once I get it and it's complete.

Some new wheels is the next big purchase that's a want versus need. Leaning towards the Neuvations with ceramic bearings.

I think I'm due for a new chain and cassette next month. I might push one more chain through this cassette though...

Then it's PowerTap time...
