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

Picked up a CamelBak Fairfax (1.5 L) for road rides into remote areas with no water sources. Got it a couple weeks ago and have been able to use it twice. Love it!

Just picked up a new saddle last Saturday and got to ride it for the first time today. Nothing fancy, just a cheaper specialized model but it's wider than my San Marcos that came on the caad and it feels oh so nice. 15 on the way to work and 7 back with one happy butt.

Oh, and after a near miss last week, a brighter rear flasher. Going to my real bike shop Saturday... That may be trouble.

WOOT! Chorus 11 now installed on my PedalForce RS. Big upgrade from the Mirage-8sp group that was on it. First ride tomorrow. Install went just fine. The new chain pins are weird. I've ordered a spare just in case I mucked it up.

Completely forgot I won them on eBay, but I'm probably the only person I know excited to get a set of tiagra brifters. Smokin deal at $100 nib. But hey, running sora now, just about any new shifter is better.

Now only I had been a little more intelligent and made sure they fit my triple. I guess it's time to grow a pair and get that double soon... I think the finish is still perfect on the small chainring anyway lol.

Oh, and a couple jerseys, shorts, socks, and a wonderfully freddish hi-viz yellow jacket for those night rides home from work.

6 for 12?! I paid 6 for one!

Just got this because I wouldn't stop getting yelled at -_-. I never ride the bike at night (mtb) yet I have to have lights on it?

5 pairs of shorts, a jersey, arm warmers, a wind vest, winter gloves, and a few 'joke items' from the Sugoi warehouse sale courtesy of WildRide and TNT Veronica. Frickin' awesome, like early Christmas.
