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

For the TT bike


Also for the TT bike


I lowered my (road bike's) bars and found that I now need some setback. I previously had the zero setback version.

I pick up a little at a time with giftcards I get from my health insurance plan. Basically I get paid to go to a gym with a free membership and I get points everytime I go and more points when I'm active online. 10,000pts = $100 Visa giftcard.

And I'm almost half saved up for Soul 3.0's with prodigy hubs shipped to the US.

Verrry nice.

Which chainstay protector are you using?

They work well. I've been using them for 2 years now. I recently ripped my De Soto ones, and went with PI. The PI are a little thicker and don't have the "cooling" effectr, but they work. Enjoy.

Awesome! glad to hear. I haven't had a chance to test them out here. It's still pretty chilly in norcal, so i'm still wearing thermal long sleeve jerseys and leg warmers.
