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

And the blue on the jersey matches my Celeste Binanchi very well

Looks awesome, where did you purchase them?

I love Ebay, bought $100 Deda newton handlebars for $9.82(shipped) slightly used.


I feel kind of bad it probably cost more than that to ship, might give dude a few extra bucks.

That's an awesome steal. Nobody caught the auction before it ended? God bless "no reserve"

Just sold some tiagra group parts (went to rival) and now have the funds for SRAM red cranks

At the LBS in Hudson, WI. And yea the L Garneau jerseys defiantly run small. I am about 6ft 200 lbs, and I got a XXXL. Way to make me feel fat, lol....

My most recent purchase is this! a Campagnolo Veloce RD! Now I have a full Veloce group

I've been going a wee bit crazy this month. I figured instead of just the last thing I got, I'd post everything I got recently, considering it was all around the same time. (within the last 2 weeks)
Felt f85
3 bibs (felt, pearl izumi, and cannondale)
1 jersey (felt)
scattante spyder helmet
4 pairs of bootleg oakleys + jimarti polarized glasses
live strong cycling cap
sidi genius shoes
look cleats + pedals
avenir seat bag
2 polar bottle
carbon water cage
topeak frame pump
some tubes and tyres
pearl izumi select gloves
selle italia flite seat (which ended up being worse than my felt 1.3)
selle san marco concor light (hopefully better than the selle italia)
fizik bar tape
aerobars
sigma bc1609 computer
chain cleaner
chain wear indicator

And hopefully I can add a trainer to that list soon. I'll post some pics as soon as I get my trainer, and my hat and glasses come in the mail.

Decided it was time to get a proper floor pump. I've been using nothing but my Topeak Road Morph pump. Good pump, but I wanted a proper floor pump for the garage. After a little research I decided on the Lezyne Steel Floor Drive. Picked it up from REI this weekend. Very nice. Seems to be a quality pump. Looks good sitting in the garage too, which is a bonus.

Used handlebars are worthless, especially like they alloy/old school bars. I can't even given them away to my local LBS to put in their Clearance Bin. I feel bad just throwing them away, so they are still sitting in my parts bin.

I need to chill out for a while. I've been spending money like a rich trophy wife. Why can't I be satisfied with the 5 pair of bib shorts and 5 or 6 short sleeve jerseys that I have!? I just ordered a Castelli Jersey, another pair of Garneau bib shorts, a set of Team Felt bibs and jersey, and Pearl Izumi Elite LTD short sleeve and long sleeve jerseys

Got some Vredestein DuoComp Tires. Anyone used these before? I searched and there is no mention of them anywhere on Bikefourms. They came highly recommended. And I have to say that after my first ride they feel very fast!
