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

CRAP!!!! I didn't have my bike at work last Monday when I placed my order, and I could have sworn I had a 100mm stem. But I actually have a 90mm. So I just went from a 90mm 17° to a 100mm 7° stem. I'm thinking it's not going to work. Installed it with one additional spacer below the stem than I had before, and now the hoods are almost the same height but 3/4" farther away from me.

Dangit, and now the same stem is back up to $50 instead of $25.

I'll probably use the 100mm stem on my MTB whenever I change out to 31.8 bars.

Set of Wellgo MG-8 pedals, to get new magnesium bodies for use with the new titanium spindles.



Not much chance to ride with them, but the couple of little rides did not disappoint.

Cheers

Lowering the bars released that tension and my neck was able to move more freely.
