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

Have you ever used a CO2 pump before? I own one, but I have never actually used it. Not really sure if I would exactly know how, to be honest. I guess one of these days, we are going to find out...

I haven’t used it yet, just picked it up sunday. My first group ride I got a flat and one of the guys that I rode with had one. Worked really well, and it doesn’t take up any space in my saddle bag.

Scored a SRM Crankset powermeter for my gravel bike from local shop owner paring down his power meter collection. he also threw in a brand new Force crankset I might use for CX to save the SRM if it looks sloppy.

A dbl-headed chuck for an old Ascent (Performance) pump. Had purchased a new pump, but wanted one I could throw in the truck for a spare. Pump works fine now, tho not as efficient as the more modern, newer pump.

A pair of Castelli Estremo gloves. I had doubts about them but boy those gloves are worth the money. They are comfortable and toasty. They are a bit bulky since they have extra layer of insulation but I don't feel like I'm wearing astronaut gloves. But still, it's pretty hard to grab a gel, a bar or (most importantly) your phone for a quick 'gram from your back pockets.

The cuff area is also well designed. Instead of a zipper, they put velcro so I can adjust tightness depending on what I'm wearing. Also, cuffs are long enough so there won't be cold air slowly leaking inside your forearms.

I don't know how durable they are since I have only worn them twice. I ride a lot outside so I'll be happy even if they survive 2-3 seasons. I'd def recommend them to my fellow cold weather cyclists.

A new Fisik Antares saddle to replace the old stock Ritchey one. I tried a Selle Italia and a newer Ritchey, but Fisik beat them both in weight and comfort.

I've been riding an Antares for awhile now and I just really like it. Longer rides are just no issue at all. Fizik seems to be a pretty solid company.

Urban commuting jacket

Bought my girlfriend a Showers Pass Odyssey jacket for her ride/walk to work. Jacket is dark grey with subtle lighter grey pattern on it (street maps of major cities, actually). But when hit by light, this is what happens.



Potato photo quality from phone but you can see how reflective the jacket is with direct light (phone flash). When light hits it off-axis it's not nearly as reflective. For comparison, the red light is a PDW blinky light and a forward pointing blinkie on the stem. There are passive reflectors on the wheels, pedals, and her boots.
