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

SKS Race Blades. Mounted in like 5 minutes (I'm methodical), worked fantastically. The bike is still a mess, but it kept me dry (although gravel covered).

Definitely not using rain as an excuse this year.

How do they work with aero forks? My aero fork has much wider legs, the only reason that's kept me from getting them so far.

+1... Just got those too. I usually ride in the rain (when it's warm), so these are going to be nice to have.

I was all set to get fenders, until I came across reviews similar to this one. I suppose if I was wearing more expensive gear I might consider it. Until then, I don't care if I'm wet, I just don't wanna have to spend 45 min washing my bike when i get home. *sigh*

I have those, not an aero fork, but because of the shape of it or how the rake works or something the front fender won't work.

They come with adapters that go on the front fender mount for aero forks.

These things...

45 minutes? You're way too into your bike...

If you want to do a rain ride and not wash your bike when you're done: Buy a touring bike and put permanent fenders on there. Adjust them well, size them a big large.

Klean Kanteen bottle cage. The rattling against my aluminum bottle cage was driving me insane.

36T inner ring to replace my 34T.. we'll see how this goes. 34T is on the rain bike now


Very useful tool for re-installing chain rings onto my rain bike's crank. Seems as though Sram Rival do not have the funny nuts so i didn't need it for the nice bike

A new bottom bracket for the Schwinn Cutter I got for Christmas. Someone told me the stock BB wouldn't last long and they were right: Less than a month before it started knocking after climbing a 12% grade. The LBS replaced the stock cup-and-ball BB with a cartridge, cost me $15.58. And boy does it feel nice.

Yep. Back up bike. Plus lightest frame on the market. Maybe I'll put SRam Red on it one of these days and make it super light. But this is fine for now, trade up is only costing me a net of about $1300 after I sell the Six13 and an extra set of older Kysiriums I have hanging around that I'm not using.
