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

A mini Specialized hand pump. Dealer said he could pump it up to 120 psi so I'll test that claim the next time I get a flat...

Another pair of Sugoi RS shorts. LOVE these shorts!!! Snatched them up on eBay at the price of $51. I wish I could buy a whole box @ that price.

I have a few of these shorts as well and they haven't faired as well as I thought they would. I find that the stitching is fairly delicate and the rubber grippers inside the leg disintegrate fairly quickly. Maybe my washing machine is too aggressive The chamois is nice, though.

Nothing fun but just bought the essential bag to carry a extra tube, small pump, cell phone, etc.

I'm finally ready to get into some real rides.

I always use the lightest wash, add a bit of Tide, vinegar and baking soda too then stuff only biking clothing into the washer. Then I hang up the Sugoi's on bent metal wire hangers until they're dry. The first pair I bought back in February still looks brand new besides extremely light color fading on the gray to red part on the chamois and tiny splinters in the SUGOI lettering on the front. Maybe this will help!

Picked up a few SuperiorLite Jersey's to represent a little better. Picked one up for my friend who did not previously own ANY bike jersey's. I figured since they are pretty damn nice full zip / 3 pocket jerseys for under 20 dollars shipped, it just made sense. Plus gotta rep the new bike.


Here is the new ride.

It has got to be the best ice breaker for any cyclist conversation yet. Been out on just a few rides with it and ive heard 'Nice manocoque' like a dozen times already. (From the other riders of course)

None of the above. "The Woo" is Woburn. Native of Waltham, though.

  1. HubBub helmet mirror - I've decided I don't like eyeglass mirrors
  2. SRAM X.9 10 spd RD
  3. Shiftmate 5S
  4. Specialized Bibs

I have a Deore RD and right angle Shiftmate now, but the shifting isn't perfect. I think the straight-in housing run will give me crisper shifting

Bought a new Bell Array helmet to replace the one I cracked when my bike slid out from under me on a patch of snow. Also picked up some SKS P35 fenders, because it rains here so much.

Made the switch to Campagnolo, LBS quotes of $200-$250 to fit groupset, so decided to buy the tools and do it myself.






Anybody know an inexpensive, Campagnolo compatible 10sp chain link tool?

Do you mean a chain link tool, or a campy specific chain whip?
