Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I own two including an Urban 800 fast charge and a helmet mount Vis 360+.

The Urban lights are very high quality products. You can feel that they are well made when you hold them. Beam pattern is the best I have seen, better than a $400 Exposure "Road Specific" 1200 lumen light I own.

I wish run time were longer on the Urban lights as 1.5 hours on high is a little limiting. It can be extended to 2.5 hours by using the medium setting when on quiet roads with no traffic or when climbing. The GoPro mount is a nice feature.



The Urban 800 fast charge version is $78. I paid $140 for this light 1.5 years ago.

I also came across a Vis Pro at REI. It has piqued my interest. 600 lumen helmet mount!

Sweet, thanks. I can do fine with low and medium settings on strong-ish headlights on most of the roads I ride, so battery life isn't too big of a concern. Might pick up one of those.

Vittoria Zaffiro tires 11 bucks and change at BikeTiresDirect.

I just got a pair of Conti's, but figured I might as well pass the info along.

No idea if it is a good price but I think Excel Sports has the right idea in putting together the bundle below. They clearly understand that people are asking for lower gears.

It could be a solution for someone looking for a little extra on the hills and thought I'd point it out. Upgrade that 28 tooth cassette to a fully supported 34 tooth solution with a click of a mouse.

Kitsbow Geysers Jersey - XXL in red only - $84.50

https://www.competitivecyclist.com/k...rt-sleeve-mens



This is a super nice product - merino blend, zippered and lined chest pocket, longer sleeves, subtle classy branding, a little heavier weight for cool nights with arm warmers or with a long sleeve base layer for fall. I own the 2.0 version of this jersey and it is as nice as anything I've ever purchased.

A steal if you happen to like red and are an XXL.

A company called Woolpower makes a similar product.

I'm susceptible to bronchitis and keeping cold air off the chest but not overheating, balancing warmth and ventilation is always a challenge. Anything to manage it is interesting.

Where I live Bubba wears BBQ sauce on their overalls with pride.

Prices were great back in July and August.

There were some great deals recently on last year's leftover models, both tops and bottoms, but they are getting scarcer or have limited sizes.

Steep and Cheap
Backcountry
Wiggle
Ribble
Merlin

All the typical suspects.
