Well I did a quick search and didn't find really what I was looking for (at least not relevant within the last 2 years)
So I'd like this thread to be about advice/reviews/suggestions on parts and cycling gear (including apparel) as well as maybe just a place to tell cool stories about recent rides - MTB is welcome as well!!!
I just picked up road bikes for myself and the wife and I am STOKED about them! We've wanted to for awhile but I just didn't want to drop the coin; the more I read/heard about pro riders cycling though, the more I wanted to have at it. The roads around me suck to ride the R6 on, but they'll make it pretty easy to put in a long ride on a cycle I think.
The wife's new bike
First things on the order are seat(s) - the Bontrager on my bike is BRUTAL. I'd like to hear some suggestions on seats/saddles or anything else you've found that eases the pain (I'm trying Anal-Eeze later).
Then we both need bottle holders and shorts and jerseys - the wife says she is ok without but I definitely don't have the best shorts to ride in.
Any apparel I should look for or avoid? Good places to purchase?
