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 tested a bunch of different brands of glasses myself at my LBS's in town and settled on a pair of Tifosi Podium with interchangeable capability, but mine came with just one Fototec All Terrain green lens, I like that I don't have to change the lens. I rode the other day at night and even though they always have a tint they didn't bother my eyesight the least bit while riding when it was dark. So I'll use the Bolle's when I drive.

too many to list but these are the two best things I got recently (and they were the cheapest ones too)





I think I'm gonna be buying more Defeet socks. I have a little sock-obsession at the moment and their socks have the perfect height and don't run down. I'm just wondering after how many washes until it does that though.

I like my DeFeet socks, but so far my favorites are from 4shaw, they're a bit more expensive, but they're a great height and have compression in all the right places.

They're super expensive on their website, but my shop sells them for $20/pair and I usually get a little extra off on top of that.

warranty from Specialized turns out to be a 2015 Tarmac Sport so now I really feel good about the 5800 brake set I bought. Just waiting for the new one to show up. Gallardo Orange was the only color available.

Specialized XC Lite glove. I always wear full finger gloves, and it's been 100 degrees here.

These are great -- no padding on the palm.

Just bought my first set of replacement/upgrade tires. Been running the stock Bontrager R1s, just purchased a set of Conti 4000s II in 700x25. Very excited to try out.

Bought a card with 6 KMC MissingLinks on ebay. I have a few chains that are pin only and would like to be able to easily remove them for a thorough cleaning once and a while.

Also bought a used braze on FD-6503 for a Secteur build.

A few weeks back I bought a couple of high vis orange shirts for better visibility while riding. Everything looks about the same though. Maybe I just need new glasses.

Great purchase! but what makes the 520 better than the 810? I ask because I recently purchased a 810 (couldn't wait for the 520).
