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

off brand Garmin Varia seatpost mount


brooks c17 all weather, since a lot of the top on one of my original c17 saddles is finally worn away.


400x27.2 Whisky no7 offset carbon seatpost since the current 350mm Easton seatpost is basically right at the min insert line and there is a slight clicking every now and then from somewhere in the saddle/seatpost area. This will give more surface area inside the seat tube and maybe itll feel different from the aluminum seatpost its replacing.

Ooooh, I've been looking for a skinwall tubeless - they weren't available when I ordered mine in the spring.

Ouch - that price, though. The 28s are $73 each and I assume that there's the usual ~$25 shipping.

Good thing I have some tires to hold me over for some better deals.... in a year or so.

I got the 26s for $64 ea. $146 for a pair, including shipping. I wasn't finding them any cheaper anywhere else.

Yeah, that's the price that I'm seeing for the 26s - it looks like their shipping costs have come down a bit.

For reference, my 28s (black sidewalls) were $46 each in the spring.

That's a good price! I couldn't resist the skinwalls, though.

Yea I decided I did not need the gumwalls that bad. So I just stuck with black walls. I got some 30's a week or so ago at $49 each.

2 sets of Hold Fast tubeless valves.

Also ordered a Stages SB20 smart bike. My wife is riding my Wahoo Kickr more and having to swap bikes and swap cassette is becoming tiresome and I just don't have the room a 2 Kickr setup.
