FOUND ANOTHER VENDOR @ $3.87 EA 5 CENTS MORE PER TUBE I need a minimum of 10 tubes total order before I can submit the order. That can be 2 from you 4 from me etc. I will close this on Friday, March 28 and place the order on March 29th. If you are interested comment here on how many you want. Who is in?

Shoe Doesn't Fit!

Buying cycling shoes can really be a pain especially when you buy from the internet and come to find out that the shoe size you selected doesn't fit. Then you are forced to return the item.  Shoe manufacturers sizing charts are not all the same.

Credit goes to Johnnyboy for doing the research and compiling it all in these charts.

Cycling Tips

Do you know what this is?

Yes it is a bicycle pant/ankle strap.  They help keep your pant leg from getting caught in the chain.  They are available a most bicycle stores from $3-$5.
This to be one of my favorite items because not only does it keep my pant leg away from the chain, I have found other uses for it.
As a third hand brake tool when aligning my brake pads with the rim. 

As a reflector on my seat post

As a spare inner tube strap.

As a parking brake when riding public transportation such as BART.  It keeps the bike from rolling around when on the BART train.
Do you have or know of any other uses for this?
