Going to Munich for vacation, what to buy?

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

Going to Munich for vacation, what to buy?

I am going to Munich for a week for vacation. Trying to figure out some bicycle related items to purchase. Continental tire? Lightweight wheel set?

Get a jersey as a souvenir. Most likely everything else will be much more expensive than PBK.

So your going to pack bike gear back into the states with you? I wouldn't bother. Just get some good grub and beer and worry about bike stuff when you get home.

The suggestion for a souvenir jersey inst bad, but as far as hardware goes, I'd skip it.
