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

Don't know if I'm allowed to do this or not. I got a replacement warranty 500 with cadence sensor. I'm looking at an 800. If anyone is interested in this, PM me. Then I can edit this and post my recently purchased 800!

That's quite the fancy garmin just to track speed/cadence!

I've been tempted to upgrade but with the latest round of firmware updates, my 810 has never worked better, so I'm holding off for now.

Well, I admit I also enjoyed being able to follow the defined route for the century (organized event) as I was riding. It also saved the group from veering too far off off course at one point.

Ha, yeah, I tend to be that guy on group rides too.

Was supposed to get my C1 chainrings today. Unfortunately Saris decided to ship via Fedex, which always end up in disaster. Hopefully I will be able to go pick them up tomorrow.

There is a 'for sale' area on the forums for paid members (it's not much to join).

FedEx and UPS are usually fine for me since they'll just drop things off at the apartment office. USPS is the worst since they refuse to do that instead making me go to them to pick up my package. Something that I can't do any any day other than Saturday since I have one of those job things.

I now just ship everything to the office.

I'm sure it is entirely dependent on the region, or even neighborhood. For me, UPS is always great. They deliver at reasonable times (evening) and when I am not there they leave the packages on the back door between the screen and the door. USPS is also good since the mailman has a key to the lobby so he can leave packages in there when they are safe. Fedex, well they usually come at ~11am, which isn't very smart considering it is a residential area. Also, they just ring once and leave immediately. Today my GF was home but she couldn't get to the door on time. Then, when I've specifically asked for them to leave stuff on the backdoor, they just leave things laying on the street in front of the main door. No big deal, I'll just pick my package up tomorrow (waiting for redeliver is futile, I am never there at 11am), just felt like a small rant.

I swear sometimes they just fill out the little slips ahead of time and slap them on the door and leave without even knocking.

Shoelaces. 5 pairs. To lace all cycling shoes. I am cutting the straps off, grommeting the shoes and installing laces, kinda like 40 years ago. I did this on one pair before Cycle Oregon. First one I have had zero foot issues on. I have been suffering toe infections, numbness and pain almost like I was splitting bone for the past few years, ever since I rode the hilly Crater Lake Cycle Oregon fixed.

You won't be disappointed. LOVE my aeon! Last ride I actually had to check my head because I thought for a second I didn't have a helmet on.

last summer i was in danger of getting evicted (long story, apt owner selling house, she was a ******, w/e) so i got a PO box and forwarded my mail there this way i wouldnt have problems if i had to crash at my aunts house for a while

-skip to the end-

ended up finding a place just in time without any actual problems, but i realized that with a PO box everything except DHL and UPS could go there, and it would be held in a secure spot and i could get it whenever i wanted, so i kept it. one of the best things ive ever done, super reliable and convenient and no roaming heroin addicts could walk off with my packages!
