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

New Vuelta Corsa HD wheels for the road bike. Not the best, but better than what came with it.

Some Yokozuna Reaction cables, because this is a good excuse for new cables:

Eww. We've sold one of those. We won't be selling any more of them. There's a limit on how much I can be positive about a product that I have no faith/interest in.

Gotta love a basebar/aerobar/lever combo that costs more than any one of my bikes....

(Well, not really. Can't stand the levers. Just like the Profile levers, they're too "sharp" and just plain scary. The range of adjustment of the aerobars is nice, though.)

Giro Atmos helmet and a Road Morph pump. The Road Morph, IMO, is THE best portable pump out there

I'm not thrilled with my most recent purchase. The Performance Quattro sunglasses weren't doing a very good job of keeping my eyes from watering today on my ride. I'll try them out at the race tomorrow and if they don't get any better I'll take them back.

I have yet to post in this thread so I'll give a run down since starting out at the end of April.

Trek 1.2 (and starter stuff like pump, tubes, patch kit, bag, bottle, cage, etc)
Cheap softer saddle to ease into cycling
Falconi bib and Primal Wear jersey from Love2Pedal (Just arrived today)
Another bottle and cage from LBS (got this today too)
Arm warmers on closeout from Velowear (ordered last night)
Multi-tool from PBK (also ordered last night)

I bought two jerseys today. I've never had a "real" jersey and just rode in tigher-fitting regular clothes with my bike shorts. Holy crap are jerseys awesome though!! Now I get it. The pockets in the back??? BRILLIANT.
