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

How does that attach to the crank arm? I see no flats for a pedal wrench, so do you use an allen wrench? I've seen some pedals like that.

Yup...** Correction ** 6mm [strike] 4mm [/strike] hex on this. Just like Shimano M540 it replaced (my backup pedal now in case this acts up etc)

4mm sounds too small, usually if there are no wrench flats it takes a 6 or 8mm

Older Atom-type splined freewheel tool and two 6-speed nickel-plated chains. Oh, and a Sugino 20 x 8mm seatpost clamp bolt. My tastes are simple...

SRM mounts. They cost a freakin' fortune. Two wire harnesses too, which cost 2.3x fortune.

Ordered this a month ago, but it's coming Saturday.

This is waiting for me in the mailbox. Thought I'd save $160 and just get the 60g heavier 105's. Going onto the SHIV.

Just ordered this. Don't want to take the chance of chain dropping on the SHIV!

Spring Christmas!

Last part of my upgrade to SRAM Red was sitting on my desk this afternoon:



Ok, I have a chain catcher on its way as well, just in case. Can't wait to get everything installed.

Bought a new roof rack and a new car to put it on.

Installed the Thule AeroBlade roof rack on my CT and thought I would share. I am very happy with the fit, I did have to move the rear bar back a little more than suggested so that the moon roof would clear but that wasn't too much of a pain.

Here is a pic of all of the goodies.



Pic of the bike in the back of the car.



Pics of the bike on top of the car with the rack installed.

Not needed. The new aeroblade crossbars are SILENT. I have them on my '12 Ford Edge Sport. I carry my paddleboards but need to get a bike carrier now.

Trying track this year so I did a club group buy for the bike below. I also bought a spare Force Front Derailleur, Red chainrings, chain, Zipp brake pads for carbon wheels, chain catcher, gels, LG windscreen for my Giro Advantage II TT helmet, and a few other things. Cheers
