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

Just received a 50/34 silver FSA 110 BCD set of chainrings I bought on EBay. Silver FSA chainrings for that BCD size are hard to find. The set is a takeoff and never used.

Not that my wife would ever notice, but I swapped out the OE thru axles on her new Liv Avail AR for a set of thru axles from RAP.

Carbon fork from a Pinarello Dogma F10. It was previously owned but as-new condition, for a very reasonable price. I put it on my Parallax track bike.

A tossup ...

I just received some eBay goodies. A Positron FFS rear derailleur shift lever and a NOS rear derailleur shift cable to go with it. Both bought after I decided that the kludged* repair I made isn't fitting for the 1980 Schwinn Suburban I'm riding lately.

I just bought (but haven't received) a repair stand on Amazon because I'm tired of working on a pair of plastic sawhorses.

* If you understand the plastic sawhorses, you'd know what a 'kludge' is. In this case, a barrel shaped cable connector screwed on in place of the original end that broke off. This necessitated hogging out the socket in the shifter lever to accommodate the larger diameter barrel. Also, cutting off the screw head to fit.

Yup, I've ordered from them a few times, and pretty much the same experience. They can have some great prices, but you've gotta factor in the shipping - for one or two items, it might not be worth it, but if you're buying a handful of items, you might not find a better deal.

Lately I've been enjoying the pleasures of lab-to-table EPO - you really ought to try it. You really can sense the terroir of the lab. My EPO had overtones of reused disinfectant, and notes of kidney failure on the finish.
