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

New lock to replace an ancient and balky Kryptonite, for which I had lost all but one key. Went with a cable this time, so I can secure both wheels.

Gore Shake Dry jacket. It's some closeout model that looks less bicycley than usual, which is fine with me, so long as it does its job.

I added some cheap PI sleeves and a water bottle to get free shipping.

MapMyFitness subscription for tracking my rides.

The particular app tracks cycling, integrates with my Diet/Calorie app (LoseIt!) for a seamless report, and can be monitored online.

There's something not right about a Brooks saddle mounted atop a Zipp post.

I wasn't very impressed by the tape supplied by Light Bicycle. When I removed the rear tire(after 3156 miles) the tape was peeling up around the edges. When I installed the new tire, the old tape held air without sealant, but I'd rather be cautious.

Thanks for the G-One Speed tire recommendation. That tire is exactly what I was looking for.

Mr Unreasonably Sensitive is asking about *my* issue? Chill, bruh - I'm poking mild fun at the performance brand mixed with the decidedly not-performance-oriented brand (along with the rest of the bike, for that matter).

Light Bicycle WR56C02. Found out about these in the “Light Bicycle Wheels” thread. Couldn’t stop drooling over how wide these are (23i, 30e). And cheap (“cheap”). And aero. And light. I was a bit hesitant to go with Chinese wheels because of rim braking, but the temptation was too great. I'll be posting about them in the LB thread (along with all the others who have used these). Just wanted to give these wheels the exposure I think they deserve (on paper at least).

Clever Training gave me 25 VIP Points as a July 4th promo. I ordered a 3 month Zwift membership card for $20. Will come in useful this winter.
