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

Pedals

Shimano PD-M324 SPD Dual Platform Pedal

SPD on one side, platform when you flip then over.

These have been great. Clip my cleats in one side and a platform on the other for leisure rides with the kids and wife.

It also has been great for transitioning to the clipless pedal. I can start out clipped in on one side and platform on the other and get settled in to clip in while riding. Probably not really that important but it helped get over the mental side of being clipped into the pedal and starting off.

I might get these for our stationary exercise bike. I'm not the only one in the family that uses it but I'm the only one clipless. This would be a win for everyone

Adjustable noodle for mini-V brakes:



The brakes I bought came with a non-adjustable noodle. When I finally got the brake shoes dialed in, it was difficult to get enough slack to release the cable in order to remove the wheel. Duh.

100% speedcraft glasses. Always been an Oakley fan but have wanted to try these on. OMG they are fantastic!!! Love my jawbreakers, but these are noticeably more comfortable. Lighter and softer contact points. Obviously not everyones cup of tea. Wasn't very long ago that I too wasn't a fan of how they looked, but they have grown on me over time. Love these!

Is there any reason why you don't have packages like this sent to your workplace??? I've done that before because my wife would work opposite schedule so at times it would sit outside way longer than I'm comfortable with. Bonus was she didn't know when I'd be buying most of the small stuff (physically) at least.

LoLing at you guys scamming to hide things from your wife.

Y'all have major problems in your marriage if you are scamming to hide things from and lie to your wife.

Good luck in divorce court.

If they truly are hiding it, then yeah that's something that could be an issue. But, I honestly think its more of a "haha" guy talk comment.

The USPS lost my package which contained the pressfit drivers for the Campy PT bb cups. Luckily, Amazon was quick to refund my account and the replacement finally arrives tomorrow. In the meantime, my return back to road cycling and the build is almost ready for the road.

I've added a few cycling kits, some to match my bike and some because I find them attractive, hopefully bright enough to get drivers to see me before running me down:

This is my second one, but a hard cased wallet. Compact, durable, and weather resistant. For $10 bucks, just slips into your jersey pocket without worry...only thing I don't really like is the cash needs to be folded individually if you have a load of cards in it.

Replacement strap for my Sidi shoes. I guess 14,000 miles is not bad before a tooth broke.

I didn't know they made a combo like that. I just have the regular K-Edge GoPro mount. I got it on sale for $30 new. I also have a Insignia bundle kit and use the chest strap when I ride sometimes. Do you use your GoPro when you ride a lot? I got on video a worker in motorized cart that had a blower on the back about hit me. I have the Hero 5 and sucks that you can't have a extended battery with it.
