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

DHB (Wiggle house brand) jersey/jacket & tights, size medium.

After seeing favorable reviews here. Went by size chart- too small.

I can get them on, but the cut off circulation would negate any thermal properties.

Now for the exchange process.

I have one of those. My only complaint is that I should have gotten it much sooner. Oh, I have another complaint: I can't afford one for each bike, so I either move it from bike to bike or occasionally don't mount my phone to my bars. But overall, I'm happy with the system. It's the best I've tried, and I've tried many.

a chain keeper by k-edge to replace (albeit too late... hindsight is crystal clear) the POS chain whatever that trek provides on their very expensive carbon frames, emonda, domane, madone. Which, by the way, with constant chain drops, ruined my frame (2 locations by the bottom bracket, because of many many chain drops lodging between the little ring and the BB), making it unridable. Have not ridden since last Friday (8 days ago), though, I got a tandem ride in (two strong riders = PR's on a heavier bike... my legs wanted to spin crazy!), and a component set of 6800 ultegras for the new build (not a trek) that I bought yesterday.

I'm looking to get back to riding on a rental sometime early this week and do hill repeats up the road. I'm going to work my legs crazy, after a long warmup.....

Got a new Lid today. collaboration by "Sweet protection" and Pas Normal Studios Falconer aero helmet. Pretty comfortable from first impressions! The aero inserts are pretty slick and are easy to use as they are held in place with magnets. Very excited to get out and give it a real test!

100 percent glasses and sweet protection helmets are the reasons why cycling "fashion" is a freakshow. The folks wearing this stuff spend more time instagramming and hashtagging than actually riding a bike.

You got me!

The 100% glasses are very nice, but was something that definitely had to grow on me. I wasnt a fan of them for a long time. I also hated how jawbreakers looked when they first came out, but those have taken storm across pelatons and posers across the globe.

Just wish Peter Sagan would get off his damn phone, smashing likes on IG and just ride like he is supposed to do. That guy and his shades man. What a freak

Cycling fashion, street fashion or runway fashion, there is no normal. What looks good to one, may not to another. Simply put.....if you don't like it, don't wear it.

Glad to hear that, on-line reviews were good for the most part. Got the 1100's and the 50 LM Rear lites for wife and me.
Will be taking the new gravel bikes on some Rail to Trail rides, "Iron Horse w/Snoqualmie Pass Tunnel" and a bunch of tunnels on the Route of the Hiawatha.

The kitten Jersey is amazing, must beg, borrow or ... a pair, we're owned by cats.

Ball bearings.

I needed to replace the ball bearings on the rear hub of my single speed. This was seriously a big deal: I had a dream about ball bearings last night.
