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

you might be hallucinating, because I've never had a problem finding X-type cleats online.

Care to share on other alternatives? I did find that Excel has them in interim. Google shopping certainly doesn't turn up much worthwhile

Mavics suit a narrower foot. In a dress shoe, I'd typically (if they were available more often) go for a C width.
I'd say they size pretty closely to my Giro ACCs.

My wife was in Chicago and stopped at the Rapha store and picked up a set of pro-team lightweight bibs, a brevet lightweight jersey and a pair of winter tights

Jersey and bibs were super on sale, tights not so much, but still worthwhile

I bought a new chain and cassette, 13-26 Campy Veloce and Record chain. Also bought a new seatpost, Deda Elementi Super Leggerio, because my seatpost just didn't hold the saddle in my preferred position any longer. The ridges were all stripped. I also bought 2 long sleeve tops as extra layers if/when it gets cold. October 8 in NYC and still warm enough to ride in shorts, in fact it has been hot. With the shirts I also picked up a Topeak pump/toolkit combo, and an extra pair of gloves.

At 62 years old I have all the bike stuff I need, but there are still parts that get consumed or worn out.

Bought myself a pair of Schwalbe Marathon Plus 28mm tyres for my Cannondale Bad Boy. Hopefully I'll stay puncture free from now on.

Indeed it was nice riding at Prospect Park yesterday with just jersey and shorts, with bugs flying around and all. I actually got stung on the lips yesterday...had to cut the ride short.

NOS from Amazon. Amazing quality but loose fitting for a Pro line form-fit. Fit doesn't feel much different than their semi-form jackets.

I was riding today in the park too, this time on my commuter bike with the fenders. Still in shorts and short sleeve jersey. Fall will come suddenly one day and this will end, but the forecast for the next week is still pretty warm.

Yakima Dr Tray hitch bike carrier for my wife’s Grand Cherokee and some Supercaz bar tape. My tape is in pretty good shape but I’ve heard good things about Supercaz and wanted to give it a go.

Just bought a 5-pack of stubby chainring bolts in order to configure my hybrid as a 1x9. Some bikes have way too many gears.

Nice looking pair of shoes! though... wouldn't you think the term "synthetic leather" would already somehow be outlawed by some industry watch group?

New 2018 Trek 920 Adventure off-road touring bike. I had it for 6 days now and it has over 400 miles on it, just commuting to work. I love biking.
