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

Ended up $500, but will change the crank for another $70.

Replacing similar bike that is a bit large for me.

Removed I think 9 SRAM stickers- looks better.

Had to buy a new CO2 dispenser today since mine broke. But before that I got a new bike bag from Pedal Industries. I really like it.

A Wahoo trainer mat; my old Kurt Kinetic mat is disintegrating around the edges and where it's been most sweated on.
A Wahoo Kickr Headwind so I don't have to fiddle with a fan remote while riding. (And drop it on the floor with the fan set low - naturally at the worst possible moment.)

Struggling to understand how these attach to a 5arm crank. Are bolt holes omitted from the pics or something?

I think they are shown with the special little chainring bolts in place.

I checked the bike out after last weekends 300km ride. Saw the rear tyre was showing canvas most of the way around. Ouch.

Have a couple of GP5000s 28c on the way from wiggle. 28 was a bit tight for gp4000 but I think the 5000 is a bit narrower. I hope.

Also got a couple of cateye kinetic rear lights because mine keep disappearing to the kids bikes, Some Fizik tempo bar tape and lezyne tyre levers (levers are worse than socks for vanishing aren't they?).

Ordered a few of tires to (hopefully) last me through the year. I'm gradually working my way through some of the better tubeless road tires out there, and this year it'll be Michelin Power Road TLRs in 28mm -

I have some Michelin Power Road 28's tubeless and they were the easiest tubeless tires to mount I've ever tried.

Good to hear - how are you liking them on the road? Any idea of what to expect in terms of wear, yet?

I haven't had too much of a struggle mounting tires in years, but I'm actually hoping that these hold on more tightly than my Pro One Addix - they'll unseat from my wheels when deflated which can make maintenance a little more complicated.

Really? What rims are these on? I have mine on Reynolds AR58's and do not have that problem...but I do have a double wrap of DT Swiss tape on there.

Zipp 303S. I've thought about throwing another layer of tape on there, but I want to try other tires first, anyway.

The GP5000s are more true to size, should be good.

Have these on the way, best looking crank rings ever, imo.

I'm interested in hearing your opinions on these tyres too. I currently have Veloflex Corsa's on my bike. But I'm always looking for another set good tyres.

The Michelin Power Road 28s have been great so far. I think they roll well, super comfortable, and easy to take off and put on.

Mine should arrive tomorrow!

I probably won't be able to ride them for a month or two.
