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

Origin8 Ultim-8 Trapp Pedals

Moving sucks time! Finally I'm getting back to riding again some. Making trips across town to the hardware store for fixer-upper items is faster on a bike than using a car.

Anyway, I got another pair of Origin8 pedals last week. I stopped using clip-less and toe clips years ago. I like wearing whatever shoes whenever and have a pair of Merrell Freewheel Lace shoes for biking specific times. My new (and current favorite) pedals are Origin8 Ultim-8 Trapp Pedals. Now I've got these on my commuter, road and tandem bikes. Looks like they may have stopped making them but many stores still have the pedals in stock. I find them to be smooth, comfortable and very grippy. I bought all of my three pairs of pedals from Bikewagon. They usually free ship and arrive in about a week with no issues.

SO, how would you describe the fit of the Eliel jerseys? I visited the web site and by their charts I am an XL, which I am in most all jerseys (185, 44 chest, 35-36 waist). I am not fond of the ultra-tight fitting styles and these look to be that kind....

Schwinn cyclocross alumium bike

I just bought a Schwinn cyclocross bike. Aluminum frame, 700c wheels - forget its model name this second. But nice non suspension one.
Thanks.

Lifeline EVA Bike pod: Semi-rigid bike box for taking it on the plane! Just over $200 shipped to the USA from Chainreactioncycles.

Seems like a decent case for the money. It is not super rigid, but not super heavy either. Made from the material that your little trunk cover in a car is made of. Takes a full size bike + wheelset

I had looked at some reviews, and for the money, I don't think this can be beat.

Sorry I just saw this, you are about the same dimensions as me. I wear an XL. The best way to describe it is they fit like a proper fitting jersey should. Not restrictive but form fitting in addition to the correct length in the front and back. There are no baggy areas to flap around in the wind.

Been liking my Giro Empire E70 Knit shoes so much, couldn't resist these Republic R Knit for my SPDs when I saw them for 50% off. Comfy, hopefully the soles don't pedal like a wet noodle.

Billy Graham is a very curious cat. We got him from a rescue organization about 6 years ago. He came with the name. He can insert himself quickly into a situation and can nap instantly. Lately, Billy the cat has been acting as if he would like to ride. He seems interested when loading our dog up for a ride in the basket. I'll have to give the cat a shot at cruising sometime. I trained him to be wary of cars though, so I'm not sure how he'd act on the road when near passing cars.

Yesterday I made this cycling related purchase...



An 18-Pack of Stella Artois fits with room to spare in the Wald basket!
