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

I'm a huge fan of the design and features of my Ekoi Gara helmet, but I'm curious about their bibs. Have you ever tried them before?

Return policy is also fantastic - as far as sizing goes, follow their size charts - they're pretty accurate. I purchased one of their jerseys and size was spot on, good quality.

For those of us that aren't tubeless yet, this looks like a good deal on tubes:

^ That is a good deal, especially for us that need long (60 & 80) length valve stems. Much better price there than what I paid ($8 each) for Specialized 80mm valve length tubes a few months ago. At the time it was all I could find.

Bike Tires Direct has factory refurbed Garmin Edge 820s with 1 year Garmin warranties on sale for $150 today, 8/13/22.

I bought one a month ago for $190, and I'm happy with it. It's not perfect, and it uses more juice (about 1mile) than my old Lezyne, but it does more than my old basic Lezyne. Great display, great function. True, the touchscreen function sometimes misses, but pressing buttons don't always work as intended, either. Great price.

For the REI members: looks like Cannondales (with the exception of e-bikes) will be 20% off during their Labor Day sale, which seems not too shabby. If you have an REI credit card, the extra 5% back would make it an even better deal.

Wife was able to get 35% off of a returned Topstone Alloy 1.

I don't know; the listed weight of the Prestacycle Uniblock 12-28 cassette seems to be significantly higher than that of its 11-28 cassette, which implies (at least to me) that this is real.

I have ordered a 11-27 cassette (11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 24, 27) and e-mailed Prestacycle to request confirmation whether the 12-28 cassette is really that whack. I will keep you posted.

Shimano thinks an 11 speed, 12-28 cassette have these cogs: 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 28. Since Shimano has only deigned Dura-Ace buyers worthy of this combination, I do not have firsthand experience with this combination, but from riding an Ultegra 12-25 and doing my maths, I think this would be an ideal cassette for me. I hope that the Prestacycle Uniblock will happen to have the same gear ratios, because that makes the most sense in keeping the gaps between gears the same, but we shall see if Prestacycle responds to my inquiries after this long weekend.

Worse. 2T jumps on the small end then 1T jumps in the middle, then 2T jumps again all the way except one more 1T jump between the two physically largest cog. Inexplicable!
