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

I'm sure you'll find out soon enough. You need those tires for that sweet AR. Just keep that monstrous carbuncle of a bag well away

I know what you mean. I liked the look of my white zaffiros but these are 290g lighter and are a bit more badass. Your zaffiro pros are a far better tire and your AR doesn't need need its looks enhanced with flashy tires.

No, mine are wired Vittoria Zaffiro (340g each, 26TPI). Yours are foldable Zaffiro Pros (240g, 60TPI). The Ultremos are 195g and 127TPI.

Shimano Dura Ace PD-7900 pedals. I've dialed them in on the trainer tonight and I'm good to go. They simply ooze quality. I am hoping for long life from these. My last pair of pedals (Time RXS) have about 25K miles on them and I'm thinking the DA will last even longer.

Dinotte 300R taillight. Brighter somewhat than my 140L and easy to move from bike to bike. You can see it for at least a mile which is a big plus on country roads.

mY riding partners won't even let me ride with them if I use the 140L. I had to switch to the PB Superflash.

Seriously? You're ricing a bicycle? That's the same as putting a GT-R badge on a Mustang.

Will do after a couple of rides. They are Cyclo Pro which is supposed to be the best of two worlds - race construction but with a minimalistic walkable sole.

My most recent purchase was the repair to my Trek CF seat stay. Yesterday's fine tune-up was the best expense of the whole chipped CF epsiode. The bike rides like a dream. Better than when I took it off the showroom floor actually!
