Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

They price matched Nashbar($98.99), and have an in-store coupon for $20 off purchases of $75 or more.

I used the points from the Garmin 520 plus purchased during the 3X points sale, so they were free other than sales tax.

I just got some Speedplay Zero Chromoly pedals and Bontrager Circuit shoes. My first clipless setup. So far it is different and I still have to get used to it and get the cleats setup properly. I also have to break in the cleats a bit as they are still a bit tough to clip in and I have them installed properly withe speedplay torque driver.

Have you sprayed the cleats with some teflon? Helps a bit.

I used dry lube on the cleats. I didn't use the speedplay brand but I used the finish line dry lube that I have which I noticed in one of the speedplay videos is an acceptable alternative.

That was an old post. The Nth series jerseys are great but I can't stand the Superlight jersey and gave it away. Three Nth series jerseys no longer fit me since I lost weight. One was my favorite, a real workhorse. Good prices at Wiggle. Morevelo styling though... Every once in a while they get a pattern right.

Elastic Interface pads are among the best out there.

I just purchased a Giro Synthe Mips

Give their Nth bibs a try.. if you happen to be an XL, Probikeit has a 15% off their sale price, putting them at a decent price (~$60 less than Wiggle) Haven't tried their jerseys but have their PlanB race Cape which is a nice pocketable emergency jacket. Their jerseys are hit or miss on designs.. I kinda like their Panettone edition as it relates a bit to the business I'm in

Ultegra R-8000 Pedals

My most recent purchase was buying myself some new R-8000 pedals. Put them on my second most recent purchase a new 2018 CAAD 12 Ultegra.
So far I could not be happier.

No no pics as I donít have enough posts. 🙁

The Pantone is one of their nicest designs right now. Some of the other patterns... I don't know.

This is my favorite but it doesn't fit...



Hey, what size jersey are you? I have a few items I could send you no charge. If it fits you could keep them.

Just ordered this little combo deal, white cages, black bottles, and a little Colnago bag



Ordered from highendbikediscount.com, couldn't find a single review online? Hope it's not a scam.

Silca Premio Seat Roll (I had a credit with the LBS, or I probably wouldn't have indulged quite so much)

I've got the same bag, I had to switch to one that didn't attach to the seatpost because they were rubbing holes in my bibs. Like it so far, I will warn the velcro can come loose if it gets soaked in a rainstorm.
I just got the same glasses too! Mine came with prizm road and persimmon vented lenses

The velcro that wraps lengthwise? It doesn't look like anything would be in danger of falling out if it were to come loose - does it just get flappy and annoying or is there something I'm missing? And yeah, same problem with bags that attach around the seatpost.

Mine was "custom" at the store and I just wanted something for low light and clear was what they had, I just pulled everything out of the bag, though, and the clear lenses that they gave me are the Path shape, I wanted Pitch (too much of an air gap at the cheeks for me with the Paths). I'm going to call in the morning to get them replaced. How do you like the persimmon? I would like something that would enhance contrast without knocking down the light level too much. A yellow of some kind would be great, or possibly persimmon, but I haven't seen them in person.

@WhyFi The persimmon isn't as yellow as the cheap glasses I had before, but still work well in the dusk/night conditions I often ride in.
Yes, the lengthwise velcro strap. I was riding through a huge downpour about a month ago and it came undone and everything went flying out. Luckily, I noticed it just after and got everything off the ground. Other than that huge storm, I've had no problems. I've since wrapped a hair tie around it for insurance.
This bad of a storm

The Oakley shop had a vented hi-vis yellow Pitch lens on hand and so they swapped 'em out for me. Now to get in some night riding.

clear lenses are also available. Iíve found the Persimmon and Hi-Vis yellow to work well in the rain, but to be distracting for night rides in lighted areas.

YMMV.

A set of 26-42-50 chainrings to replace the 32-42-52 set up. I'm older now and need bottom end more than top end. Oh yah, they look great on my old '84 Peugeot PH10 that I bought new (I'm 63 just for the record).

Yeah, I'll have to see how it goes. They originally gave me clear but in the wrong shape (Path). I kinda hope that Oakley makes some of the new Prizm Low Light lenses for the Radarlock, but I'm not going to hold my breath - seems like they're full steam ahead on the Radar EV and Jawbreakers and anything older is second fiddle. I wouldn't mind the clear to black photochromic, either, for those early morning and late evening rides, but they're kinda spendy.
