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

Picked up a pair of these the other day from REI -



Liked 'em so much that I went back and picked up two more pair. Very similar/comparable to Swiftwick merinos, which have been my favorites by a wide margin until now - both have thicker napping/padding on the bottom at the heel and forefoot areas while being fairly thin and breathable elsewhere (most of the Smartwool cycling socks are the Ultrathins that have no additional padding and aren't as comfy IMO). At ~$13.50 on sale, these undercut the Swiftwicks by $6.50.

Traded a Canon S200 that I almost never used for an almost new Polaroid Cube. Now I'm going to find me a suitable mini power bank to go with it onto my helmet, so I can shoot longer continuous videos.

Second XL Delta phone holder that broke at the bracket this year so I bought this one. Hopefully it will fare better.

In order to get free one day shipping, I added this tire pressure gauge.


Sorry for the extra large image, that what Amazon has.

@SylvainG, I've tried a lot of phone holders. The only one that didn't suck is the Quad Lock. I didn't get it early because of the price. I would have saved money if I had gotten it early on. I even got one for free, in exchange for a review. That one tossed my phone onto the ground. I told the vendor she didn't want me to review it, and she thanked me.

Quad Lock all the way.

You bake shoes? Vanilla or chocolate frosting?

Very forgiving bike. Carbon smooths out some of the bumps and the geometry is less aggressive than my Allez Sport. Really liking it so far, but I'm swapping wheels and replacing the Axis brakes with the new 105 EV brakes

Lol, baking is the heat molding process with Bont shoes. Put them on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 170 deg, put them on and tighten them down and stand in them for 10 minutes...viola you have a delicious dessert for your feet

Picked up one of these and installed.

https://www.topeak.com/global/en/pro...ero-wedge-pack

I was sick of having a road bike and thus easily swapped it out for a tourer .

Anyway - the small is just right - tube, a couple C02 cans and a head, tire levers, and ID/cash packet. A touch of room left for a key or something else.

Only drawback is that the clip for a rear light doesn't hold the light quite vertical, so may not get the full brightness for cars (so I stuck with the seat tube mount).

I bought my very first "nerd vest" (high visibility reflective vest). It's not that bad - still a bit big, but not as crazy big as the XXXL ones at the hardware store. Not my usual style, but neither is getting hit by cars on rural roads.

I've decided that I really want to continue road cycling in the evening, which means that soon my road cycling will overlap with times of darkness.

A not-so-cheap power bank to power my Polaroid Cube. Although it can take an SD card of up to 32Gb, this little thing can barely last a full hour and record a couple of Gbs at 1080p on its own battery, if that.
