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

The Boa system itself is fine. It was where the lace/cable went through the routing attached to the upper of the shoe where it broke. Very clearly a simple wear issue after years of use. I was told the only solution was to replace the shoe. Also seemed like a great excuse to get some new shoes

The Boa dial mech was actually replaced on these shoes, again I think it just wore out but Boa is very good with their warranty.

Caught my eye when looking for things to use some REI gift card balance on, figured it'll be perfect when riding to the neighborhood microbreweries.

Negative. Need a handlebar or bum bag to complete the look.

Finally order my power pedals after wanting them for a year. My bike finally gets here from Guam on Monday next week and I cannot wait to ride again once I get the pedal fit done and the bike reassembled.

Indeed! I usually get excited about, like, a new water bottle or gloves.

Hehehe yes, me too. Oh, I did get two new Purist 26 Oz bottles and some blue summer gloves. Totally forgot about that in my excitement. My trip to get the bike was quite the adventure over unpaved mountain passes, due to mudslides on the main highway. It was a bit hair-raising at times, but I had the right vehicle for it. Still, it was a 3-hour trip there and a 4 hour trip back. The things we do for bike stuff....

This frame left my stable in 2005. I recently got the chance to buy it back, and it was delivered to me yesterday. It will get rebuilt with Dura Ace 7700 9-speed, same as it had when it was my race bike almost 20 years ago.
