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

Set of Joe Young wheels. DT Swiss 240S hubs, DD RR 415 Rims with DT Super comp spokes and topped off with Conti Grand prix 4000 Tires. These will replace the stock Bontrager Race lite wheels that came on the Madone.

Let's see it's been a while.
A new, lower stem (color: black) by profile design. $25
A pair of gloves black on super-sale, don't ask the brand
A wind breaker $20 --black by bellweather which seems to attract heat
Some PRO black handlebar tape $10 -- sorely needed.

Technically not my most recent purchase, but most recently delivered.

My cruddy photos in the dull light this morning really don't do these justice.

Psimet build, White Ind. hubs, Kinlin rims, Sapim spokes.

Picked this up on eBay from a seller in England:



It's the exact opposite color combination of the one I had in the early 80's.

Forget the wheels. That frame is super. I've wanted one for quite a while.
