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

Velox rim tape - why have I waited so long to try this stuff? Fills whole rim channel, doesnít slip and doesnít abrade the tubes.

and itís adds a level of cushion to the ride!... just kidding

Last for me was tires. Pandemic has made everything so scarce I got lucky and found a new pair of takeoffs on fb marketplace. Hardly anything is in stock at the shops (which are currently closed due to shutdown) in my area

Just bought this Raleigh RT500 earlier today. Seems to be pretty good condition but definitely needs old stiff pads replaced and probably tires due to age (no cracks though). Love the shifting compared to the 1986 Technium 440 I used to own. Going to give it a nice bath to clean her up a bit.

Since I like my Swiss Titan so much, I found another Titan frame w/o a fork thatís a frame size w/ SL tubing Iíve looking for, esp since I already have a fork that will fit a 57cm frame. Just needs to be chromed...
Titans were actually made in Italy & marketed in Switzerland.

Selle Italia Max Flite Gel Superflow saddle. Competitive Cyclist is selling them for $114 and that's too good to pass up. I'm also likely to get some Fizik Overcurve shoes. Or Shimano RC7's.

I'm seeing lots of great prices on GP5K tires in Europe - and I live in New Mexico. Shipping is free/cheap from many of these places.

USD (Ugly Saddle Day)
Picked up one of these $16 beauties to try on the trainer setup. My regular saddle is great IRL, but on the trainer, not so much. We'll see...
Gotta love how they label right on it, what it's for. LOL

Red Zeppelin CO2 inflator with a couple of 16g cartridges. Now that I have tubeless, I can't count on the mini pump working. Hopefully I won't have to use it for a very long time.

Why do you say that? If you're concerned about re-seating your tires, it's really not something that you have to do on the side of the road. If you're putting any air in to your tires, more often than not, it's going to be a top-off for a bigger cut that took its sweet time to close - I think that a pump is preferable in this instance. If the cut is too big to close, you're going to pop in a tube and you don't need a rush of air to re-seat, anyway.

The only instance in which I can see a pump being inadequate is if you take a big (but not catastrophic) cut *and* you don't have an emergency tube (but you do have a plug) *and* you have one of those tire/rim combos that don't like to stay seated when completely deflated.

Maybe the mini-pump is his only pump?

Good last couple of weeks. Some nice 45mm Woven carbons and just bought a pair of r8000 shifters as I begin getting parts rounded up to convert to 11spd. I wish Shimano would get some stock out to retailers I'm having a hell of a time finding anything lol.

Mostly Wera 1/4 Sockets and some socks (always need more fancy socks) but our distributor had these on a deep discount and my dumbass said let's do it



Normally I would not buy CeramicSpeed anything and metal pulley wheels but for some reason the sale was too good to pass up and I happened to have the dollars and not the sense. Hopefully I will be so much faster now on my road bike. They are coated which means they have coating which is Dutch for go faster and stuff

I canceled the order for Reynolds ATRs and went with the Reynolds AR 58/62 DB.

I removed the OE decals because Iíve got a custom set of decals on the way.
