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

I'm trying to stick with the "don't buy upgrades; ride up grades" adage, but I was actually having problems going down grades so I bought some Ultegra calipers to replace my crappy Tektros.
