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

She's a beauty. I would match the seat and bar tape but that's just me. What color is that?

Thanks! The seat is Fizikís 3D printed dealio. Itís kind of a funky green color. I think it would clash with the blue of the frame (vertigo blue). I donít love the color of the Fizik saddle, but itís very, very comfortable. Best saddle Iíve ever ridden.

Where did you get it? Are they actually custom made - as in the shop measures you and you pick up your saddle a little later? A saddle can never be too comfortable!

Waiting for a Cube Acid 240 Jr. to arrive from the UK for my 9 yr. old son. Since his older sister transitioned to a road bike last summer, he's been wanting a geared bike. He just didn't feel comfortable enough riding with drop bars so this was the next best thing. Also got road/hybrid tires to replace the OE knobby tires the bike comes with. Of course, I had to treat myself too; Campagnolo Shamal Ultra C17s.

I just bought a Garmin Varia RTL515 to improve my safety factor out there. I'm going to test it out tonite.

I just ordered/received a Park HCW-5 Bottom Bracket Lock-ring Wrench and a Park CCP-22 Crank Puller. I'm migrating from purchasing automotive tools (it's a hobby) to bicycling tools. Which means I'll finally get around to cleaning up my 1981 Schwinn Super Sport!

My wife started riding indoors for exercise and liked mine, so I had to order another. If yours doesn't work out for you, I'd gladly take it off your hands. I have a Power Elaston that I use as a fallback, but I don't like it as much as the Mimic.

Tektro short reach road levers and:



Campy Centaur calipers and:




Jagwire cables to connect them.

All to add some stopping power to the old C'Dale I'm setting up for my daughter.

OK, so shipping was still almost $16. Still. I like the Aeron stuff, it's my size, and it's hard to go wrong with bright colors for evening rides on woodsy roads. Score.

I have it and have never used it, but have master link on one bike and 4 more brand new chains to go. Someday I'll need it and I'll be glad I have it.

These came for Father's Day. There is one more on the way from the UK that will take a while. I believe it is this one:



This doubles the number of nice jerseys I have. I have a bunch of not so nice ones too, and maybe those can be retired now that I have these. I have 10 pair of decent shorts so the collection will last about 2 weeks of riding before laundry.

I have a thread about sizing in the Road Cycling forum. Large and extra large and they are really pretty small.
