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

Bought a new cassette on Saturday. Now I think I'm going to have to buy a new chain whip because mine has disappeared. Bloody hell.

Garmin Edge 500 Neutral Edition (chose the Neutral to match my white/black Tarmac)



Finally have the money, and finally REI has it available. Will be here next Friday. Now just gotta wait on Amazon to get the HRM/GSC10 for half MSRP

Ironic thing is I just got a job (part time), so hopefully I'll still be riding ludicrous amounts of miles to make this purchase count

i THINK it includes the HRM so all you'll need is the gsc10

Am pretty sure it doesn't It isn't listed on the models on Garmin's website (Unit + HRM, only the Unit + HRM/GSC10 bundle that PBK has for ~$290USD, but I'm buying from REI for their support)

I've been waiting for the neutral edition to hit the shelves myself. Going to check my LBS first, but it's good to know REI has it.

Indeed. They've had it in stock for the past week or so, I've just been waiting on my tax return . Should be in by next Friday wohoo

If you want absolutely the cheapest deal, though, PBK has it for $284.59 (the whole Unit + HRM + GSC10). Last week Performance had their anniversary sale, and you could get the kit for $280, but its the standard color.

I'm old, all my gear is old, I need to buy a lot of new stuff!

I thought about buying a new bike but decided I would keep my bike. Everything is good except the wheelset so I decided to just get new wheels. The most recent thing I've bought is a set of DuraAce 8-speed hubs and an 8 speed cassette (8 speed to work with my levers). I'll need to buy some rims and spokes, and new tires and tubes too. The only other thing that the bike needs is new bar tape and I've already got that waiting.

As for me, I need a new helmet, new shoes, new gloves, and I could use a few more pair of new shorts.

Performance has a 20% sale and now carries Assos...so I bought another pair of FI Unos. All said, about the same price as the previous pair I bought from a UK dealer, and will arrive at my door in 2 days, not 20.

I'm contemplating doing a grouppo switch once winter rears it's ugly head again. The Tiagra 9 speed actually works very good with the compact up front. Shifts are accurate, and plenty fast enough for a club rider like me. I may upgrade the wheels in the near future... Have fun with that CR-1

Bought this because after finishing our new basement workout room with TV and surround sound the wind trainer and headphones simply would not do.
