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

Finally I don't have to deal with bikes tipping over while working on them and get my wheels as true as possible.

Slightly overpaid for these Pearl iZUMi Thermal Arm Warmers at my LBS, but I needed them for the ride home a few days ago and couldn't afford to wait for shipping.

Just bought a new spoke and had it installed in my rear wheel and had the whole bike tuned up at the same time. It was almost the same price as just getting the wheels trued so why not.

how long do you find your battery lasting on low setting? I did a 2:15 minute ride last week and the weather was mid 60's... when I got home, the power light was half red half green.

If their advertised battery life is what it says it is, I wouldn't expect the battery to be showing red after 2 hours.

Love mine also. I have it on my helmet so that I can flash it at drivers that think about pulling out in front of me. I do 2 hour rides with it on medium and the indicator light is red/green.

Arm Warmers just because they look and lower shipping cost - http://torm.cc/aw1.html

Decided to go with Torm insead of Rapha because of cost, I hope I don't regret it.

Wow -- when did they come out with that? My wife already bought me a Garmin 410 watch, though, so she wouldn't get me a 500, and would be upset if I got it myself (she's the CFO, after all ). I'd have to ask my parents to make it a Christmas present.

That's a nice bike. Argon is putting out some great bikes these days.
As for the Torm over Rapha thing - as much as I like some of the Rapha clothing, the warmers and accesories are nothing special from them. I'm sure the Torm will be just as good.
