That fellow has a beautiful bike but hes a beast to ride up cypress without the need for hydration from water bottles!

Was seeing if anyone is interested in shoe covers?

Have a pair of Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Shoes Covers - Size Large (Fits Size 8.5 and smaller shoes)

I bought the wrong size shoe cover and its a pain to return back.

Nice! I was thinking of doing the gluten free cake one, it looks tasty!

Pretty good sale going on labicicletta.com (not the same as the local shop, these guys are based in ON i believe)

25% off storewide

La Bicicletta - The Best Online Bike Shop

Take 25% off everything online or in-store, until September 15th!
Get a jump-start on the fall sale season now, while 2013 stock is still good. Bikes, wheels, apparel, components, you name it- it's on sale. Just use the promo code "SCHOOLRULES25" during checkout.

The fine print:
(1) Does not apply to Clearance items.
(2) Items must be in stock.
(3) Free shipping does not apply.
(4) Some restrictions may apply.


i wonder if it works on their Rapha digs. would be pretty sick to get 25% off jerseys.

You might as well go to La Bicicletta on broadway because they have the same thing going on since last week. 20-25% off all bikes and clothes

It's only some bikes that are discounted, and not by that much. I would have bought a bike this week if it actually was all inclusive.
Went to SpeedTheory first and found out there was a markdown on the focus I wanted but I just missed the last one that the distributor had; La Bicicletta still had it at regular pricing when I called on the weekend.

Go in person and see if they will price match. If not, take your money elsewhere. (I learned this from 604CEFIRO.)

That would be difficult as I never got an exact quote from ST since the stock was in the US so it was depending on how the distributor shipped it.
He was calling to get me a final price on it when he found out it was just sold.



I will probably just wait and see if there is ever a deal on the 105 R3(which is a little less enticing now considering the 2014 R3 gets a new frame except for the 105 model which retains the current one) otherwise will wait for the 2014 Cayo Evo 4.

Not sure which coral I'll be in, somewhere around 5 hrs.
Riding solo unless I find my friends. Will be on the Zing, 1 black tire, 1 orange tire, cuz I'm too lazy to swap it out.
