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

Pics of my dream

Finally got the courage to take some pics.

It's only because I can't ride today because i've trained hard yesterday and I have to take a rest for my race Sunday.

Enjoy the pics like I enjoy the ride!

I see the pics, nice bike but there's only closeups.
You should have at least one full pic of the bike in there!

I just noticed your location, dr_max, where in QC are you?

Edit: I'll assume MTL, based on the url of your pics.

it WAS a big cut.

I double patched the inside of the tire.

I usualy keep my ProRace2 for 4000km, these only have 2500 or barely 3000 on them so I decided to rotate them. Put the less worn out front tire in the back and use the front tire a bit till the end of the season.

I didn't want to change my tires this season, gonna wear them out on the trainer this winter and mount my last pair of Grey Pro2Races on my wheels for the next cycling season.

Afraid not, I was there today and they don't expect anymore. They are going to ask the regional supplier to see if they have any left. He knows there are 2 or 3 people on this forum who want some.
