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

Same jersey I already have, had to size up...disgusted with myself. Goal is to size down before cooler weather comes and I break out my long sleeve version, I don't want to shell out another $175 for a bigger long sleeve version just cuz I suckled too many Cokes.

That said, love the cut and quality, but really wish they made a black one without the pink like they do for the long sleeve version. Doesn't match my red and white bike, none of their Classic jersey color options do but this is the closest I guess.

So, after I ended up putting the p Race Classics on my wife's bike, I ordered 2 more sets of the Pirelli's. 1 was the p Zero Race TLR in 28 for my Domane, and p Zero Race in 28 for my Emonda as I do not have TLR wheels on that bike. I have a few rides on the non TLR's and they are really sweet. They roll really nice, are very grippy in the wet, which I am glad to know as it has been raining here for what seems like 3 weeks solid and I am tired of riding the trainer. They mounted really easy on the non TLR wheelset, Aeolus 5's. I have less than 50 miles on them, but so far, I really like them over the Bontrager R3 in 25mm, I have been riding.

I only got the TLR's mounted today, and they were a little more difficult, but I was able to get them on without using any assistance, just my hands. The TLR's bead snapped into place on my Aeolus Pro 3V's just using a hand pump, it could not have been easier. It took me less than 20 mins to get both TLR's tires mounted and Orange Seal inserted and then I took it for a spin around the neighborhood for 20 mins while it was not raining allowing the sealant to do it's thing. Like the non-TLR's, they roll very nice. I have been riding Bontrager R3 in 32 on my Domane, which to my surprise, was a really nice riding tire, but I wanted to try out a 28. I could immediately feel the difference in the how they rolled. I plan to give them a long ride this weekend; probably in the flipping rain ....., again. I know people out west are needing rain, I so wish I could send them some of this. We are going to get rain on and off around the clock for the next 10 day. My blueberry bushes are dying due to too much rain.

Anyway, that is my initial impression. I would say, if you are going non-TLR, without hesitation, buy them, I can't speak to the TLR yet as far as recommending them, but I can't imagine they would been so different from the non-TLR versions ride wise.



Anyway, there you go, my

Took the TLR's out for 65 today. I could tell I had too much air in the tires...they were a little hard compared to what I was riding before, Bontrager R3's 32mm running at 60 psi. I had the Pirelli's at 80, where I thought I had them at 70-75. Even with that, absolutely loved them, they just rolled so smooth and easy. I am glad, I picked some up. Luckily, so rain, but the tires are very grippy.

Needed a new small torque wrench (2 to 20 NM) as it seems I loaned mine out, or someone stole it, just not sure. I picked up a torque wrench that is re-badged by about 15 different companies including Park Tools, on Amazon for $50. Park variant is $110.

I was blasted by someone for still using a magnet and sensor computer. So I just got a gps unit, I didnít need a Garmin with routes and maps so I went with a XOSS G+.

Thanks for punching this up Hopefully you've gotten a break from the rain by now. Will definitely pick up a set next time I'm due, curious to see how they do with accumulating small cuts.

Would like to report no rain, but we have a hurricane hitting tomorrow, so....

Stopped in a bike shop in a remote town in Alaska. They had Trek Madone in my size. A NOS 2014 Madone 3.1 Compact. Rim brakes. Older 105 set up (10 speed). Older CF generation frame. Wheels are not tubeless ready. But it is brand new even though 7 years old. So I bought it. It is in the process of getting pedals installed.

I got a new bib shorts and also a long sleeve jersey to wear this fall.

Both were from the Pearl Izumi outlet store near me.

Few things in this world make me happier than getting nice bike parts/accessories or clothing and putting them to use on fun rides.

My 15 year old Specialized shoes finally died. They were Boa laced and one of the plastic routing pieces broke. So I bought Giro Cylinder shoes, fit my narrow feat well and so far really liking them. Also bought some new Giro Siv gloves as my previous set, simply wore out.

Bought a pair of Vittoria Rubino pro tires as well.

DOH typo: Liv = SIV

Are you a woman? No judgement, I'm just curious how many smaller men wear women's bike stuff because it fits them better.

LOL just a Typo should have been Siv https://www.amazon.com/Giro-Mens-Roa.../dp/B08QGD4ZXP

I bet you are thinking of Giant's Liv line of products which are women focused.

As I am larger then average man, I doubt any of the Liv products would fit me

I thought the BOA were guaranteed for life. They are replaceable. I had one break and they replaced it for free with a more durable one to boot. But hey, if they were 15 yrs old they probably needed replaced

Hold Fast tubeless valves in 65mm. Black valve with red lock nut and cover. A much nicer product than the stock version valves I had.
