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

Inner tubes. Got a flat right as I was rolling in to my driveway from a ride. Could not have happened in a better place I guess.

To get my wife a Bridgestone mixte I wanted for her, I had to buy three other bikes I didn't want. One was a 90s era Huffy that I left at the pickup point and posted as free to (hopefully) someone that needs it on the local CL and FB Marketplace. The second is an actually decent 1973 Schwinn Suburban 5 speed that I will put tires on and overhaul. The third one is probably a late 60s early 70s Gazelle Tour De L'avenir in pitiful condition with a broken front derailleur mount and a seat stay broken away from the seat tube. I will put more money and time into the Gazelle than it will ever be worth just because I enjoy a challenge.

Michelin Power Road TLRs arrived. Mounted easily, seated easily and they stay bead-locked deflated on the Zipp 303S - win, win, win. Now all they have to do is ride nicely, roll easily, not get cut up and last for thousands of miles.

New helmet
Née Lazer helmet large. It was fun finding the helmet in the size and color. Forget about finding it locally. The local bike shops say we have this one helmet in large. Tough buying equipment now days.

No photos, but a front and rear axle from the Robert Axle Project.

Bought a tub of grease and tools:
1. Bottom bracket wrench
2. Torque wrench (about time!)
3. Cone spanners
4. Big adjustable wrench
5. Chain whip
6. Cassette lock ring removal tool

Five years cycling and now I can finally do all bike maintenance myself! Did my first hub repack job the other day and replaced the bearings. Sadly, there's some corrosion on the drive-side cups of both hubs of my Shimano RS100 (after only a year of use). They still turn nicely but feel a little rough They should be good for a while yet as long as I service them every 3-4 months I think.

Kask Mojito 3 helmet and Continental GP5K TDF skinwall 25mm tires.
The tires were marked down to $41 per and will fit an old 80s road frame perfectly. Got the helmet since a poc ventral air spin in my size is seemingly never coming back into stock. Figured I'll try something different as a second helmet and it's free to return if the fit is bad.

Also got a couple of cateye kinetic rear lights because mine keep disappearing to the kids bikes, Some Fizik tempo bar tape and lezyne tyre levers (levers are worse than socks for vanishing aren't they?).

Wow, 10 days for in stock items to ship from PBK. Getting a "we're sorry" email every three days. Hmmmm.

Protein powder.

Trying to get back into the post ride shake routine. Means I don't have the munchies 4 hours after a ride.

I bought a N+1 over the weekend that I should get in a few weeks. I managed to find one that was still available through special orders at a nearby Giant store. Not sure how's the market in your respective areas, but everything is either sold-out here or reserved in advance until September - October 2021. There is almost nothing available on the used market neither.

It is a huge drop from my other bike in terms of material and components, but I wanted a second bike I could use as my daily ride, winter/spring beater and gravel road / beaten paths.

New Met Manta MIPS helmet. I've liked my previous gen Manta, and the new one matches the new bike.
