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

It's stupid when I bought one and found out that it doesn't fit any of the bolts on my bike that are holding carbon parts...

refurb Edge 305 w/ cadence and HR. I've decided I need to get HR to start seriously training since a PowerTap is out of the budget currently.

Seriously with a 35 lb box due to arrive this afternoon, I wish I had ordered all of this stuff in advance.

Assoss stuff. I didn't want to admit it. Botto was pushing it. I got some to disprove him. F**k he was totally right This Assos stuff is REALLY GOOD. It is soo comfy. Waay too expensive, but you ride it and love the comfort.

You people need to stop saying s**t like this. I'm completely content with my PI Elite bibs for $85 a pop (lovin' Nashbar right now) and you guys are seriously making me consider buying the next pair I see on sale just to see...

Just got a pair of Assos leg warmers recently for a trip up Haleakala. Only needed it for part of the ride down. , very similar to my 90's Assos knee warmer.

Got a set of teeny little LED lights for the road bike . Don't recall the brand. Set me back all of about $16 and weigh about as much as an anemic mosquito. Bright as all get-out too. Love 'em! :-)
