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

Hey, I'll take them for you. Just send 'em my way, and you'll never have another problem with them again.

Because it is an embarassing reminder that you need to HTFU because you stopped pedaling!

More often than I replace mine. Seriously, it's supposed to last a very long time. I inspect the tape whenever I have the tire off. The tape I'm replacing was original to this wheelset that has thousands of miles on them.

Put a new Brooks Swallow on my Madone last night. Feels great, right out of the box and looks more like it belongs on a modern frame. Put the existing B17N on my old Nishiki where it looks much more at home. The B17N was comfortable, but it took a fair amount of wear and tear to make it that way.

Ordered a 500 in neutral but got the dreaded email from PBK that color is not in stock for a month. Settled for the blue/white plus a gift card for my troubles. Whatever, but like the neutral for the CX-1

I have been sitting on this poster for a few a few years an finally decided to do something with it. so I took it to Michael's and spent a small fortune making it an Object de' Art. next I need to find that print of the three racers smoking. OH I have also bought a ton of bike parts lately some cable sets, some cheap spd pedals, bar tape, a freehub to change a set of 6spd wheels to 7, and....

Ordered the Nashbar road frame to temporarily replace my 5200 frame that is out of commission for a while. Should be here early next week, and hopefully I'll be back on the road by next weekend.
