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 have those on my commuter bike, and I like them. I inflate them to about 40 or 50 psi.

This weekend's mail brought a cap, some gloves, and a phone mount. The gloves are labeled XL, but they're hard to put on.

Not much for color matching, but this may be a new low for me.

sometimes the smallest parts are the ones that bring a project to a stopping point.

Decent used set of Assaults, new Corsa G+ skins, 11-30 cassette and changed the rings out to a Spidering Mid from the Standard it came with. Dialed in as much as it can be for Rosarito-Ensenada next weekend. On top of the wife deciding she wanted a road bike for her birthday, it has not been a cheap month haha.

The Jerseys are Asian sizes - upsize two sizes for US

After a couple of false starts we've figured out the sizing scheme for the Space Cats great Jerseys from Rouler. They are sized to Asian sizes. From what I experienced, the Adult Small equates to a US ladies Small. XL Adult is essentially a US Adult (Men's) Medium and XXL or 2XL is a US Men's large. Note also the zipper pulls are lefty as would be found with euro Jerseys. The graphics are amazing and quality seems excellent. We'll be team Space Cat in June for the 20th anniversary of the "Route of the Hiawatha" !

A new bike. Found an 80's Peugeot at a flea market not too long ago. Paid only €20 for it. It was in very good condition, only needs new tyres.

The ENVE expansion plug is rather short and does extend far enough down into the steerer to support the entire stem. The Specialized expansion plug is widely accepted as one of the best. It is heavy but long and will support the entire steerer.

I just built a custom fixed gear bike. It has the ENVE part in it now but I will replace it once the Specialized part arrives if only for piece of mind.
