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

nice. I want a pair but impossible for me to find anywhere in my town that has any Sidi shoes in stock to even try on. My last pair of sidi where from the early 90's and they no longer fit

I think the quality is good. I know several people who ride them and they all like them.

Rockbros Cube E Pump.
haven't tried it yet, but once I do & if it holds up to the expectations, I'll probably dump the huge Topeak Morph pump & carry the cube with a much smaller road pump.

I didn’t know they made one of those. I wonder how it compares to the garmin. I have 2 different varia versions. Have not had any issues other than the camera version takes wicked long time to charge.

Let us know how it works out?

Will do. For now, it came fully chrged and fit perfectly on my D shaped seat post. Synced right up to my Wahoo roam. I'm nursing an elbow injury but hopefully will be able to get out a bit this weekend and give it a spin. Will report back.

There are a few of them on the market now. Magene has one too.

I was shopping for which one to get when my wife gave me her old Varia and bought herself a new Varia. Problem solved. LOL

Today I recieved one cycle-run brand jerseys and even in a XXL it is tight around the belly, but not unfortable, just tighter then I am used too. Most my Jerseys are relaxed or club fit. Gonna keep it and hope it encourages me to eat a little less and exercise more

I also bought 2 pair of cargo bibs. One pair of the Black Bib company Ultimate Adventure Bibs in XL and a pair of Rapha Core Cargo bibs in XL. Both seem to fit well and both feel like decent material with the Rapha being a little nicer.

Will ride the new stuff this weekend.

New Giro Helios Spherical helmet to replace the 12-year-old Specialized I was using. Matches the bike perfectly. Also picked up the Giro Roc-Loc-5 helmet light with it.
