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

No, they're not. At all.

But my wife hates 'em for the color (she's an artist) so if they irritate her sensibility I know they'll help me stand out against the summer background colors where I ride now.

I find myself dreaming about Randonneuring I'll reconsider my riding attire I assure you.

I put the stock ugly rotors on the hunt wheels, pulling those off and putting them back on the stock wheels and putting the ultegra rotors on the hunt wheels.

A pair of black LECOL bib shorts for my 2024 season.

3 tires, 2 chains, 2 new bibs, new shoes, I'm all set now. Shouldn't have to buy anything except coffee and viennoiseries.

Bar tape. Of course now I have to suppress the urge to scour the web and splurge on the last remaining pair of uber-retro-cool but ridiculously priced black annodized Brevetti Campagnolo bar end plugs.

Bar plugs are fun! Yes, very expensive for what you actually get. But... in absolute dollars not too bad, especially if they last a long time.
