Just installed gore sealed brake cables, planet x cnc calipers with swissstop pads, new cork bontrager bar tape. Love the gore cables buttery smooth.

I got my first set of clipless pedals (Shimano PD-M520) and shoes (Shimano MO086). I know they are mountain biking shoes, and I put them on my roadbike, but I need the comfortability for walk during my commute. I love them so far.

I've got those shoes and really like them.

As a follow-up - this is now my favorite piece of cool weather outerwear on or off the bike (most rides with it have been casual - feels wrong to get all sweaty in it, even though it's made for it). Zipped side and back pockets and a full, double zipper front. The hood is fitted and light enough to wear under a helmet. Stays warm in rain, although it's not a really tight weave, so breezes can work their way in. I think that it'll be great layer under a light jacket for winter riding, too.

The axiom bag I got is a little different... longer with red trim on the back. Couldn't find a photo online.

Yup. I skipped the one with cadence-- I'm a bass player with a good sense of time, so I can keep aware of that.

I'm still getting the hang of it. At the end of my ride today, I managed to erase my metric century/ maiden voyage worth of data coming up the driveway.

Still a lot better than my $9 Sigma on the Panasonic.

I'm still lusting for a Zurich, even though I got no where to put it. But since when did that stop anybody?

I ride to work in the dark from Oct to March. My colleague was struck by a car while traversing a signalled crosswalk. He was hit on the side from a car turning on a red light.
This light will flash if desired. $20 on sale at REI with coupon.

I'm hoping to avoid a similar fate.

Got the same frame sixate. Dunno the actual weight of the frame alone, but it is wicked light!

Just got myself a new Michelin Krylion Carbon tire since one just wore out.

Campy Chorus 11s 2011 Gruppo... shortly after getting a 2009 Cervelo RS frameset and 3T Ergonova Team bars and stem... more purchases to come to complete the build... this sport can be costly, but like I told my wife, this is the equivalent of her gym membership for me... I'd rather ride than be stuck in a gym...

Don't ride in the cross walk and that will help as much as better lighting. There is a reason riding on the sidewalk is illegal.

Although this isn't the place for it, in many states, riding on the sidewalk is not illegal. Please have a little compassion for this guy's friend.

I'm sorry, but in NJ its the law to stop to pedestrians in a cross-walk. Some streets are so crowded with parked cars that they offer no option for riders but to ride their bikes on the sidewalk, mind you this is not 20mph peleton riding.

Please. Stop.
