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

Zip Ties.

The last piece that needed to go on my new team Caad9 was the Polar wheel sensor and I was all out of zip ties.

Just bought an 08 Orbea Orca frameset barely used. Decided to drop the coin on a full SRAM Red group to go with it. Dropping the kids off at the shop later today for the build. My first carbon and quality components. Can't wait to ride it.
