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

And on Monday I got one for me, as well as two tires, and handlebar tape ... getting ready for the season.

I bought myself some ultegra brifters from nashbar and ultegra brakeset from PBK over the holidays, because both were on a very good sale. I've been a good boy and haven't bought any other shwag since.

Now the question is, when to install them.... my current shifting/braking works, don't feel like rewrapping my bars. meh.

Couple of cycling DVDs. This one http://www.vitadigitalproductions.co..._hilights.html and this one http://www.vitadigitalproductions.co..._hilights.html

Should be arriving tomorrow or the next day. I already have the Mt. Desert Island DVD from them. The pace on these DVDs is a bit slow, but this type of video has been more successful at making me feel like I'm outside riding than any of my other training DVDs.

On Tuesday, I built up a nice new 49cm LeMond Etape for my wife. The attached pic shows how the bike was setup in the auction. Stem is now flipped, reflectors off, and we're changing things with the pedals.

At the end of February, my new Strong frame will be in my hands and ready to build.

Just one?!?! Man, 30 seconds after I got that email alert from probikekit that GP4000S' were in stock I bought four sets. I am set with tire sets!

My second most recent cycling-related purchase was a set of custom wheels built by Joe Young (DT Swiss 240s hubs, RR1.1 rims, & SuperComp spokes) and a SRAM OG1070 11-26 cassette for them.

What with it being the holiday season, my most recent cycling-related aquisition (i.e., non-purchased, aka Gift) was a bike fit from Signature Cycles (so it included new Ritchey bars & stem) and an Assos Airjack 851 jacket.
