Anyone picking up new gear for spring?

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

Definitely. New bike, all new kit. Thing is, I've been riding all winter (Salt Lake City)- and can't wait to get the new bike out on dry days. I can't wait for the season to get under way!

I just bought a pair of Sidi Ergo2's to reward myself for my first year of riding and I just got some Easton EA70s for x-mas.

I'll be getting my team kit in a few weeks so I doubt I'll be buying much more other than maybe swapping my triple to a double for racing, new pedals, and a professional fitting.

I would say I'd be buying at least one kit from Capoforma for the season but their 2009 Spring/Summer stuff SUCKS; well at least in pictures it does.

Agreed, now I'm pissed that I didn't get the warmers, hat, vest, and shoe covers because the team has turned out to be rad.

I got the PI Gavia jersey for Xmas. It is very nice, I can wear it with just a warm base layer down to the low 30s. Liked it so much I got another on sale at Colorado Cyclist. I think they still have them, great deal for <$100.

I used some of the excess funds from my recent bike/car wreck to buy custom D2 shoes. Recently finished putting my LOOK 585 back together with Record 11 speed.

Well, I'll be getting a new team kit (for a team I'm no longer racing for, but whatever) next week. I actually paid for it back in October or so. I hope to pick up some new pedals later this spring - I'm sick of riding MTB pedals on my road bike. I'll be getting Looks or SPD-SLs.

New cables/housing, which have been sitting around for a couple months. They'll go on in the spring.

This is mighty red, I'm half expecing you to get a siren, strobing lights, and a dalmation .........

Overall I like it though, but it reminds me heavily of fire trucks.
