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

Interesting. What's the advantage and do they do that in a flat mount?

4 piston brakes offer a little more power, but I got them because it was such a slight cost difference(and they were available).

I'm not sure if there's a flat mount version, but I'm sure there's an adaptor plate.

All from CRC.
Prime alloy disc wheelset. I only bought it because I just need the rear wheel for trainer use and it’ll work on both bikes.

Nukeproof tubeless valve stems, copper.

​​​​​​​You'll love the M19. I've had one for about 8 years and it's still going strong

Kayaking, ski touring, cycling and everything in between

WhyFi , that thread about tubeless tires got me reminiscing about how I had Schwalbe clincher and tubular tires on just about every build in the past. I looked at the Helix and the GK 32s gotta go; ordered a pair of Schwalbe Pro One Addix TLE 30s.

During the 80's when I used to ride a BMX, my friend had this type of a pedal with pins by Shimano. It was great to use because it digs in on your Vans sneakers but he used to ride with just shorts. One time, he made a jump and made an error on the landing, well, couldn't look at his shin.

This is "cycling-related", right?

Spesh Tarmac SL6 Sport

If not, then the Shimano 105 pedals and saddle bag, and contents of said saddle bag.

Haha!!

Funny you say that, I'm not a fan of Shimano pedals, I grew up using toe clips and have stayed with those, but I ordered the new Speedplay pedals and will (forgive the pun) put the toe in the water on clipless pedals.

Flashing indicator lights

I have just got this snazzy rear light system to see how good it is. It was not expensive ($14.78) from Aliexpress.

The brightness is good but not amazing or dazzling but since the lights flash I think that is OK.

Has anyone else tried these signal lights yet?
