Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Lazer Cyclone MIPS helmet from co-worker who bought it on Sierra but found that it didn't look good on his head. Fit me better and I wanted a more casual multisport helmet when I would feel silly wearing my Bontrager Ballista aero helmet.

cleats

...initially purchased some inexpensive spdsl cleats to save a couple dollars, worked great in the beginning but suddenly was difficult to clip out. eventually unable to unclip at the light and went down like joe frazier!

in the end, really didnít save any money, purchased some shimano cleats after the ride

A pair of GP4000SII's. Seems they are readily available at decent prices now that the 5000's are out.

I have that rear light and a 400xl(mounted on my seatpost, facing down and flashing). they work great together.

Interesting, I'd never seen anyone put a big front light on the back for visibility.

I like being visible from the front to hopefully cut down on people pulling out in front or turning across me from ahead (or possibly even right hooked from behind)..

I've had enough close calls with people pulling out or turning in front of me that something bright out front has value.

I have a Niterider 650 mounted under the Garmin, and a Niterider 400 on my helmet. If I get hit at night, it's not because they didn't see me.

Considering I've just joined and I've been out of it for awhile...I just got a new bike! It's a bit on the older side but it's been well taken care of and pretty low miles. It's a 2012 Specialized Dolce Sport. Nothing fancy, but a damn nice bike for the pieces for sure.

some new pearl izumi elite gel gloves. I had a pair from April 2016 and no matter how many times i wash they don't smell pleasant. well that and don't absorb any shock anymore and are so loose they get stuck in my shifter sometimes.

My LBS store is loving me... first the bike, then need matching gloves and matching water bottle cages
---------------------------
Then this weeks haul, matching helmet, new seat, and replaced my 10 pound blackburn CO2 gun for something a little smaller. Also bought a $15 brush to clean my chain (not pictured)

@mattleegee I'm interested in hearing your experience with the Specialized saddle. I was looking at purchasing that saddle for a while, but I settled on the Romin.
