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

Let me know how you like it. I'm a bit late at posting so I've had a few ride with it. I think it's pretty awesome. Simple to use, customizable and very informative GPS info.

$39.00.... I just had my fitting today and installed this, now if the bloody Toronto winter would piss off, I could ride my bike and actually use it.

Cheers,

I launched a bottle a couple of weeks ago using those cages, first one I've lost in years.

Yep, I was going down a rough downhill at a somewhat high rate of speed and it went sailing. It very well could have been a one time thing since I have done that descent a few times since with no issues.

Plus one. Those have worked great for me, even on crappy roads.

Probably was a one time thing, it can happen with any cage. I'm still using them on both of my road bikes so it didn't upset me too much.

I really like it and use it both for road and mountain biking. I've also owned the 305 and 705.

I bought this Focus Mares CX bike recently and actually have been riding it on the road a good bit, so I decided to get a few road bike parts on the cheap.

Easton Circuit Wheelset (only $199 from Bonktown)
Ultegra 12-25 Cassette
Maxxis Re-Fuse Tires, 700x25
105 Pedals
Fizik Bar Tape

Loving this bike so far.

^^^Nice. What size? And whats the head circumference? I'm 58cm and undecided between M and L. Wife has a Giro Stylus in M, and it's tight for me, but Giro suggests a M for 58?

Where did you order from?

I got mine from Bicycle Buys, about $160. I live close enough to them that I can pick it up, which is what I did. I wear a M in the Ionos, and went with a M in the Prolight.

I really like this helmet. It isn't warm enough here on Long Island to compare venting for heat between the Ionos and Prolight, but the the Prolight strap system is great (for me) and the difference in weight is noticable. I do think that the 2011 Ionos has a newer strap system though...

I also got the RL the silver ones. I started to have some serious problems with pain and numb toes, I tried to fix it with some new insoles but didn't work. So I got a BG FIT with the S-Works shoe and problems are gone. I do have some weird feet though so that doesn't help none.

Didn't quite purchase it, but received a Mavic CXP22 2011 rear wheel today, with Tiagra hub. Received it as replacement for a Mavic CXP22 2010 rear wheel that shredded during its warranty period.
