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 like that shape a lot! Hope you enjoy it. Looks to be fairly similar to my Ritchey logic curve bars.

Yeah, I put a set on the Colnago already and really like them. So I figured I'd switch out the Parlee as well, since I was going a little narrower anyway. And golly gee whiz they match the stem, too.

I'll be doing the socks too. You selling that kit or is that not part of the closet you shrunk out of?

I have a lot of Rapha jerseys and jackets, but just got my first pair of Rapha bibs. Damn they're comfortable!! Better than the Castelli with progetto X2 chamois. This won't be my last pair, that's for sure!!

Well hell if you set the bar as low as castelli anything is awesome. I have a pair of rapha classic bibs and I think they are OK but they are a very relaxed cut and I prefer them for coffee ride or easy spin days. My money is better spent on assos equipe or campionissimo bibs which I have a few pairs of and love.

Hoping so I've been riding Aspide Superleggera's for the last couple of years but just don't find them comfy on rides longer than 4hrs anymore...rode the LBS test (well broken in) antares for a few hundy km without any discomfort before committing

The lightweight bibs have a reputation for having a rough seem on the inside of the leg. You notice that at all?
