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

EC70 bars and stem, Tacx plastic cages, Showers Pass jacket, Descente Coldout bib-knickers and winter socks, a sweat catcher for trainer use, a TdF DVD, and that's it for now. The nearest LBS is going out of business and is liquidating their stuff. I might get an upgraded drivetrain, too, but I'll wait till my days off next week.

2x Conti Gator Skins 700X23, Pearl Izumi elite jersey in black, 3T pro bar tape in white, PI grip-lite glove, two road tubes, one mountain bike tube, and a Serfas switch stick (mini pump).

Mostly from Santa

DA 7800 shifters, DA BB, Ultegra FD and RD, 105 brakes (they had an Ultegra rear brake, but no matching front), bar tape, Sidi MTB shoes (forget the model, but they're a step down from Dominators; but they're my size), fifteen unthreaded 16g CO2 carts , another EC70 stem (different length, just in case I like it better), Ethik recycled shopping bag (my mom could use it).

That's it for Round Two of shopping at my LBS's store closing sale. Counting other parts that I bought the other day and still others that I have on hand, I have everything for a new bike except for cables and a frameset. Next: buy the demo Zipp 404s they have, or Easton EC90 SLX tubulars? Or keep using the EA90 SLs that I have?
