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

Jandd Briar rack trunk bag. It's the tallest I can put on my bike that fits under the seat. Very simple bag, nicely structured, and I think it will hold what I want it to hold. It looks pretty good on my bike, much better than the sagging, way too wide for my taste 'Roswheel' from Amazon.

Summer aero jersey...Sportful Bodyfit Pro.

A new bike for my 13 year old as he has outgrown his other bikes. A rather nice 1/2 suspension Carrera Vengance Limited Edition alloy daily rider. Equipped with Shimano groupset and Shimano M445 Hydraulic Disc Brakes. £160 so I am well pleased with this as they are going for over £200 in the UK. Also came with a free bike computer!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Just bought this stand, delivered today. I'm hoping it helps me in maintaining the various bikes in my house. I just did a cleaning of two bikes without it and it was just a PITA. Maybe I'll clean more often.

Needed some new chain lube (FinishLine ceramic dry), so of course I had to pad out my wiggle order for the free shipping.

My Vittoria Voyager Hypers for the commuter arrived today too.

Do you mean the 4000S II? I added Mr Tuffy in mine after getting two flats in a month. That was in Spring 2017. Didn't get a flat since then and rode over 4K km on them.

this is a seriously good saddle ... nice choice. Anyone considering a carbon saddle should take a look at these pieces of saddle art ...

Sweet. I wanted to try some out just because, too, but they didn't have a tubeless option... until now! Looks like they released one about a month ago - I'll have to read up on it and maybe pick up a pair.
