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

My first non overstuffed saddle.



First ride was 65 miles. I could not really find a comfortable position. Tilted it forward a small amount around mile 47 which made it much better. Have about 125 miles on it and aside from a couple of sort spots I have no problems with numbness or pain. I think the forward tilt is too much as now feel increased pressure on my hands.

Having a pro-fit within a week.

my team bibs are exactly the same except with silicon leg grippers instead of compression bands and i've done 90 mile rides in them perfectly fine

i just got these yesterday so i haven't had a chance to get a good ride in on them

update on them, darker matte parts are actually ribbed and are amazing, they fit a little smaller and the material is a little thicker, but i love them so far, the compression bands are awesome

Nice, I'm looking to get one myself. Haven't decided yet if I want to buy a complete bike and upgrade as I go or get a frame and build it out.

As for recent purchases, well... I had to replace my Edge 500 after it took an unintended fall on my garage floor (LCD shattered) I will handle the new one as if it were an egg.

I got tired of the Nob mounts my lights were mounted on coming loose on my tapered fork so I went to Nashbar and got their $10 mini front rack, bolted it to the unused brake bosses and bolted a piece of seat tube under the rack to mount the lights on. Much sturdier and I suppose if I really want to I can have more cargo space.

Eclipse Titanium frame with Focus Elite Carbon Fibre fork, seatpost and rear stay. Built up with Campagnolo Veloce from 2005, Alex Rims EST 13 (front) and EST 14 (Rear), floating on top of Continental GP 3000 tires. It is one hell of a fast ride as I get use to the 53/39 chain ring and the big generation gap (I had an ishiwata tubed Bianchi + SRAM Rival + Tubular before this bike). The bike fits very well but the hoods feel like I'm over reaching to get to them just a touch (1" or so?).

The start of my sora/tiagra to 105 has started. Brand new 105 double and 105 Front derailleur are getting ready to go on the bike. I paid a total of 45.00 for both. Seems like a decent deal for me! Time for shifters/cassette/rear derailleur.
