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

Hello Mr. Giro...
Ha! Just bought a Volt on clearance Friday, got 1.5 rides out of it before I split it Sunday.

My short list this week...





And some sort of helmet, PI Elite bibs, and a replacement Oaked Arrogant Bastard Jersey.

Crashing sucks.

It won't come loaded with the latest version? I imagine I just download it from the Garmin website?

Placed an order for a PowerTap Pro+ rear wheel. I really don't need it but I feel naked riding without power. I need something to confirm how much I suck.

In case you guys didn't know, Bell has a crash replacement program. Send them back the helmet, a story of what happened in the crash and a check for $35 and they send you a new helmet. I used it after my crash. That's why I'll probably keep riding Bells. Giro also has a replacement program but I don't think the discount is as deep.

Nice bike!

You know what you should do? You should leave the steerer tub uncut and put the stem right at the top and fill in between with spacers. Show up for a new local fast group ride and claim it's for your back.

Scared you won't be the coolest guy at the ride anymore?

Awesome frame though. Even though red isn't my fav.

Very very silly idea. I did get this frame for comfort though. And, I have no business at any fast group ride at the moment.

The only person who thinks I'm cool is my 6 year old son.
Awesome frame: correct.
I like the red/black color scheme. Same as my old and soon to be for sale '07 Tarmac. 58cm, full 105, Ult RD, clean as a whistle.... Just sayin...

Few weeks ago a set of CR18's laced to Deore Hubs for one of the T700 commuters to replace a cheap back wheel that started breaking spokes and the mismatched front wheel. This makes the wheels interchangeable with the other T700 that I had laced a set of CR18's onto the original hubs.
Today a set of early 80's Suntour Power shift bar ends that I am torn as to putting them on the Raleigh or the Fuji.

These bars simply rock. Have been using them for about a year now. They taste great, are very very easy to digest, don't melt or change consistency with cold/heat, and are small to carry in jersey pockets. I have tried several of the more common products in the market, and this is one of the very few I have been able to tolerate no only the taste but the easy digestibility. Highly recommend them if you do longer distances and need to fuel up. Not the cheapest at a cost of about $2.08 per bar. I buy them by the box (12) though since they are not locally available for me.

The most recent update was within the last month. So I would think you'd want to check for an update. There were some bugs that were changed.

If you really don't need it, you can send it my way.
