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

Pearli Izumi Elite Barrier WXB Jacket


Pearl Izumi Shoe Covers

As well as:
Sugoi Fleece-lined skullcap
Merino wool socks

Most were from holiday sales (jacket was 50% off at paragon sports in nyc), some (socks) were out of necessity.

I really like that bike, btw I think it's a 10-4 because of the sram on it.

An additional pair of my Krusty the Clown shoes. My current pair are more than two years old and I noticed these started getting scarcer, so the writing's on the wall.

Works well actually. It's very compact and actually does fit in your jersey pocket. I wouldn't call it a full-time stand but it does get the job done. And it works on my SRAM Force crank although it's designed for the Shimano family.

Just don't use it for parking bikes in the garage for the winter season....

(actually, I'm thinking about the plain FlashStand "portable tune-up stand" )

Just installed my new Speedplay Zeros this morning.

I hope that they don't send me a cease and desist letter for mentioning their company name.

The club I go to decided to get new spinning bikes. Problem is they sent the old ones off two months prior to getting the new ones. So I have no place to spin my legs. Ordered this. Just don't know if I will put my old Mountain Bike on it or my new Carbon Road Bike.

You can probably save another couple of grams by removing all the ink from the graphics and logos.

Shimano 105 BR-5600 calipers to replace the Tektro's. Much better brake feel, modulation and stopping power with the 105's. Im sure its mostly the better pads.

I like my new Vis 360 enough that I wanted to get this for bike mounting. Bright and recharges from my laptop.
