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 never considered Red, I had it on a bike a couple of years ago and I hated the shifting ergos. My guess is it's 100-200 grams lighter.

The new shoes are nice, got those like a month ago, they advertise them for $400 in the US, I got these from Wiggle for $250. I've had like 4 pairs over 11 years, they keep getting a little better each time. They don't really wear out, I get them repaired when the inner heel lining disintegrates, so I rotate between 4 pairs of summer shoes (well, 3 now, the really old ones don't get worn much) and two pairs of the winter Sidis.

This new bike does have the higher grade carbon fiber which is purportedly stiffer and more compliant. Combined with the 202 wheels which feature a slightly wider rim width the bike really is very comfortable and a great climber. Very happy with it.

I really like the 52/36 compact better than the 50/34 I had on the old bike, just works better for me in general for a couple of reasons combined with the 11/28 cassette. That 36/28 bailout gear really does help when your legs are toast and the ramps get north of 12%.

Also: they put that Zipp bar tape on this and on my other bike, that's really nice stuff, looks like it will last a long time too.

Great looking bike... UCI illegal

Got it for $179.98 @ brandscycle using a 15% off promo code yesterday. Looks like the code does not work now.

Finally, finally, finally... getting rid of the POS FSA Vero square-taper compact crankset on my Felt bike. Replacing it with a Tiagra 4700 10-sp Hollowtech crank, a BBR60 Ultegra BB, and picked up a BB tool to go with it. All for $108 total, with free shipping from the UK. According to them, it shipped out yesterday via DHL, and will arrive at my office near Memphis tomorrow (!!!)

I own one of each already and they are amazing garments. Login with an account and the price will drop about 15% when you go to checkout.

Wiggle carries some of their stuff, often at very good prices.

I received my new wheels from Nashbar today to replace my mismatched set with the jacked up rear rim (discovered it was poorly drilled out to schrader valve when fixing a flat the other day). 32H Mavic Open Sports laced to Shimano 105 hubs with some 25mm Conti Ultra Sport II tires I already had. I already feel better having that rear rim off the bike.

I have one pair of the Performance socks as well. I never wore it because it was a bit too thick to wear with my old shoes and opted for my thinner Pearl Iziumi Attack socks most of the time. My new shoes are a touch bigger and I tried the Performance socks again just for the heck of it... what an amazing difference. So comfy.

I also have a thick pair which I got on clearance at the LBS. Not sure what model but they are very thick, definitely a winter sock, probably closer to the Pursuit. I use these in the winter with my more sneaker-like touring shoes on my fixed-gear bike. Very warm but then again, I live in Georgia so it doesn't get down into the single digits.

So yeah, I rediscovered these socks and today bought the Performance One and Performance two, one pair each. The blue socks are the Aspire Four. I have a few kits that match the color. Giving them a try in the hopes they are not too thin.

Wish I could help more. I'm sure the Pursuit won't let you down.

Morvelo's style can be feast or famine IMO.

Sometimes they put out a sublimely elegant designs and other times I'm like, "What are you thinking?" I guess that's typical of all British design, not just cycling jerseys.

I'd love some feedback on their bibs. I don't own any Morvelo bibs and am interested in the Nth series classic.

I can openly say that the MAAP bib shorts are hands down the best I've ever worn. Supreme quality and the most comfortabe chamois pad I've worn to date. Thats being compared with Rapha, assos, LG, Castelli and Santini that I've previously worn. I'd rate MAAP at a 9.5 out of 10, Rapha 8 out of 10 and the rest to be 7 or below.

I picked up one of these yesterday as well since they were half off. No idea on quality, but the reviews sound great. Mostly, I just wanted a jacket that I could wear commuting/at night since my nice Capo jacket is black and wearing all black at night just sounds like a bad idea. I have a couple of other jackets but they're not form fitting and I'm just not a fan...hopefully the Gabba does the trick.

I had bought some red Uvex cycling sunglasses at performance some weeks ago. I like them so much when the sale rolled back to the $35 price... I went in for the Tuesday lunch extra 10% off. This time I bought them in white.

Snagged a pair of compression tights for $29.99 shipped. I actually never used compression during training, but after trying out a pair during a transcontinental flight, I decided to pull the trigger. Well worth the $30 IMO.
