If it's because of a cycling related injury, I'd say yes. :)

(and BTW, I'm taking some too because of my hip that I hurt last week. :/ )

Best sunglasses you will ever own.

After 125 miles use, I like my Radarlocks better, but these are pretty good.

I work for Oakley, so I got these just to improve my product knowledge.

I'm looking to get the Radarlocks for next year.
I love my Splitjackets since they're nice on or off my bike, even with the vented lenses.

Me neither...I should have them in a week or two, I don't think they're overkill for the bike I'm putting them on, a Surly Straggler, but I wanted to indulge myself and see what a decent pair of wheels is like versus stock.

Yep..I want this. If for no other reason than I can...oh, and it'll make the 40 miler every saturday from December to February NOT suck. Now to convince the wife...

It was on Ebay for $210 with zero watchers. It retails for $300 so with the shipping from Europe I still didn't think it was a SUPER sweet deal. I wrote the seller before the sell ended and asked him if he would accept $175 for it and he accepted. THAT'S a SUPER deal!!! Brand new with tags. I tried it on at the Rapha HQ here in Portland and it is simply amazing while standing in the lobby. We will have to see just how awesome it is while riding. I tend to get super hot in winter clothes, but the fact that nearly the entire back of the jacket is a breathable material, I'm expecting it to be pretty good.

Badger6 09-02-13 07:54 PM

Yeah, I am a space heater in anything that is called "breathable." Rain gear, thermal...whatever, it's a mess. But that stuff is supposedly better than spacesuits. I'm game. Great find...hope it is awesome as it is claimed, brother.

That's what I keep reading and hearing. :) Apparently you've got to do it a certain way too or else it acts funky afterwards.

Three tubes of Mastik One. Cross season is almost here.

Just did mine this afternoon. Use the Garmin WebUpdater (for your particlear OS), follow the directions. It is simple. If it gets screwed up, do a reinstall (an option the updater gives on Mac OS, not sure on Windoze). Great device, I am riding a century in two weeks, and am excited to have this on the bars for that ride.

Thanks, I hope so too! It will look sweet with the matching insulated pro team bibs!

Hope no one opens the front door when you're rolling away.

Since I'm taking this return to cycling seriously I'm going to ride until it snows in NH. I just bought two cygolites with 500 lumens because I will be running out of daylight soon. I ride 30 miles daily which takes me around two hours. The lights last 90 minutes so when one goes out I turn on the other one. They are great. $200 for the pair.

Just got one of these! love it and they are cheap :)
