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'm buying my own tools too. I already have BB30 tools to replace bearings on my bike as well hub bearings. I think the cassette tools was one of the first ones I had years ago.

Been wanting to own an Argon Gallium Pro for a long while, yet the frame alone is so damn expensive.

Found this gem on Ebay last week for a sick deal.

2014 Argon 18 Gallium Pro frame (brand new)

2014 Argon 18 Gallium Pro (new) If I tell you how much I got it for, you'll think I'm lying.

This frame made my supersiX felt like a steel bike.
Go ahead and lie to us.

Retrotec Funduro. I know, not a road bike, but it is a cycling related purchase.

If money were not an issue, I would have them on all of my bikes. Currently only have the hubs laced up to some Stan's on my mountain bike. Love the quality of their stuff.

Cane Creek 110 headsets are just as good without the drama.

I bought a pair of Open Pave tires for my 92 Paramount, but I won't be in the US to pick them up until May.

Sure, but this drama you speak of, the KING logo on the headset, I see that a sign of quality. Doesn't matter if there are more discreet headsets out there, the KING looks really nice. Sometimes, you know, it is all about that bling factor.

I ordered some accessories (For a Gravel bike I bought last month). Been trying to decide how I wanted to do saddle bags. A decision I've never fully committed to because all my bikes were previously the same size tire. The bigger (gravel) tires require a 700 X 35-43 tube.

Now the gravel (rain/snow/play) bike has it's own bag. My daily rider has it's own fully stocked bag. And I have another small fully stocked bag to float among the other bikes.

So... New is the Gravel Grinder saddle bag, with it's own CO2 inflator (new), and it's own size tubes (also new). Then Since the bike is green with orange trim... (and the saddle bag is orange)... I ordered some (new) Gatorade bottles too.

It's a Performance Bike exclusive. It is an Access (now a Performance brand I believe) Old Turnpike. There is a couple threads on the forum about it. It's a Gravel Bike. I don't really have much gravel available to me. But I do think I will get some use out of it as more of a winter bike.

I just bought two pairs of the Arundel stainless steel water bottle cages to go with the Bottecchia and the Master.

As soon as I install them I will post pics.

I like the look of the Arundel cages. I have the Arundel Mandibles in my C59 and C60 and on my wife's Trek Madone. Those cages have a tenacious grip!
