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

I wouldn't mind the clear to black photochromic, either, for those early morning and late evening rides, but they're kinda spendy.
Prizm Trail is about as close as youíll get right now. Itís too dark for night rides IMO. Persimmon is great for rain, but clear is best for nighttime rides.

I hate using any less at night, but I donít wear corrective eyewear, so they always feel annoying to me.

New helmet. Old one smacked the pavement when I was hit last month. Seemed okay but I wanted another helmet anyway. Got a Bell Formula MIPS. It's good. Better made than my Bell Solar. Vents seem more effective in hot weather. It's a helmet, just a utilitarian thing.

The new glasses with the Prizm Road lenses? I like. I mostly forgot about them, except for the occasional times when I noted the how well they dealt with bright and shady transitions as I went in and out of tree cover. That and my vision certainly seems to be more acute with them - I have a slight astigmatism (not enough to necessitate daily corrective lenses) so maybe the color filtering is helping with wavelengths that might otherwise muddy the picture, or something.

I have the prizm road as well in prescription and I agree. They're good in low light and dark and they definitely filter out offensive light and make your vision seem much sharper.

Grabbed some Supacaz Super Sticky Kush for the new KTM. I usually stick with a super plain tape, but something about this one just spoke to me. Also, Kask was kind enough to discount a replacement Mojito after my crash. I grabbed a new color since they no longer made the USA flag version. Friggin awesome helmet. Saved my life.

Hey welcome. They're not for everyone, but I love them. I started with toe clips in 1975 and switched to clip-in in around 1987, first with Look and now with SPD. I don't like riding without SPD now. I hope you like the shoes and pedals you got.

NOT. The LBS ordered it by mistake and offered it me for a great price. But the only price I was looking for was FREE... so i passed.

Amazingly bright even at hi noon, light weight - less than 1 oz, quick charge, 6+ hours run time and cheap tail light. Angled mount that points light correctly when mounted on seatpost. Only question left is how long will it last.mini cob tail light

Trek does... they are offering 0% for 12 months, even on non Trek products.

BTW, Subaru was offering 0% for 60 months so i bought a Legacy for my wife. I'll save $5000 by investing the money as I pay the loan. I'm trying to talk my son into buying one also.

Well, I had too many margaritas a couple of weeks ago and then this showed up at my door. Busyman Cycles leather handlebar tape, perforated with backing colors that match my bike (I guess he does a fair bit of work with speedvagen, Baum, and the likes). Looks beautiful in the daylight but my first time wrapping with leather in years so will probably have to go back and do it again.

Iím justifying the purchase by telling myself that itís supposed to last easily 20-30k kmís And thatís with normal bars. Since the tops arenít wrapped I figure sky is the limit for me!
