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

Bad couple of weeks on tires. The Maxxis Detonators lived up to their name and one exploded without warning. I had just bombed down a long hill that I probably tickled 35mph came up the next hill and made a right. Got caught by a light and just about at a complete stop when the tire slit open. Picked up a set of Conti 4000 GPs in red tonight for it.

My Beater that I commute on a lot of late came up with a bad spot on the side wall of the front. Old tires so picked up a set of Conti Ultra sports in a 700x28 for it. Really wanted a set of gum wall Pasellas but none in stock anywhere around here. Had a $50 gift card for REI so we will see how these do for a while.

Old Pedals - Shimano A520 SPD


New Pedals - Shimano 105-5700 SPD-SL


A picture of the whole bike with the new pedals. (Yes, there is a clear upgrade from the SPD to the SL style. Much smoother and feel more attached)

hydrogen peroxide, neosporin, gauze, and medical tape

and a new (to me) 105 RD to replace the one i busted when i took the fall. good thing is i found one locally on craigslist for $20, installed it and everything works just fine. i'm planning on repainting the bike anyway so i don't mind the scratches on the frame either.

Maintenance Parts/Stuff...

Yokozuna Reaction Cables to replace the Gore



Fizik Microtex Tape
Conti 4000s tires
Dumonde Lube
Pair of Castelli Rossa Corsa 6 socks, I found at 50% off..
First Endurance EFS - Fruit Punch...which is WAY better tasting than Orange Blast...The fruit punch lacks that fake/masking taste.
A USB Thumb drive to pull power data off of a LeMond g-Force

Picked up some new Louis Garneau ErGo Air Revo Shoes from Performance on Clearance. Not the lightest shoes in the world at 720 gr/pair but a clear upgrade in quality from my lake cx165.

Just received a set of wheels for daily use. I love my carbon wheels but I have decided that it would be nice to have brakes when it's raining.






Also got a new set of cleats. Woohoo!!!!

Lots of new wheels on this page. All very nice. Those Dura-Ace wheels are super nice if you have ever actually ridden them. I am starting to really like the hubs that Shimano putting out.
