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

Also picked up some Oakley Radarlocks with two sets of lenses: Prizm Road and Clear.

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

@evan326 - Cool and thanks for the heads-up!

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. :thumb:

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.

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.

A Trek Domane ALR 5 Disc!

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.

WhyFi 06-30-18 10:31 AM

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.

bright orange bar tape to replace the lime green.
I like rotating colors about every six months.

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.

What's the point of posting that then?
