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

Just be careful when rotating the bars inside the stem - that white paint around the center is not all that tough.

Not really. Most of it was bought on sale, or new on eBay. For example, the frame only cost me $385, even though it's brand new.

I am very pleased!

Couldn't help myself... new to cycling, swore i wouldn't get a cycle vest until I had some semblence of ability and lost some weight. The weight's under control, but ability, well, that's another story. Anyhow as a big Kiss fan I couldn't help myself, got it from a Kiss website and had it US mail posted down here to New Zealand, goes well with the black Rayban Wayfarers I ride in I guess

These will be my first pair of clipless pedals on my first road bike. I was going to wait and get them in the winter and practice using them on a trainer, but I figured I'd go in head first and do it all at once! I'm very excited...and nervous haha. Thinking I'll pick up a pair of Specialized shoes when I pick up my bike this weekend as well.

Got some Specialized BG Gel gloves today, hopefully to help my numb hands. I also picked up some Beljum Budder. Havent needed it on my rides yet, only been up to 60 miles, but im doing my first century in 2 weeks(back to back on an MS150) so I figured I should grab some.

Does beer count? (Post-ride re-hydration and pain-numbing supplement.)
