Shops :twisted:
666 says - What's all this stuff about STI, carbon fibre and 700C(622)?

Real bikes are made from carbon steel and roll on 27 inch (630) wheels.

velogear has some at $12.95, and if you buy over $29 free shipping. only 3 to choose from, but best price I've seen so far.
If you've got a $10 head, get a $10 helmet

Prendas is great. I think they still do a package deal on caps, 4 for 12 pounds or something. They also have a good range.

The bicycle is a curious vehicle. Its passenger is its engine.

What the heck are cycling caps for? Is it to keep your head warm?

To be euro cool of course :wink:

Ah let me see, they keep head warm in winter, and shield glasses from rain, in summer it serves to prevent sunburn, peak on front to shade eyes, wet it and let the evaporation cool you as you ride ,and in my case prevented a bee sting via an angry insect who entered via a ventilation flute and went ape droppings.

You can buy the cycling caps from the Knog store in chapel st
or you can buy them online.

Cecil Walkers in the City (elizabeth st) have team caps for $24.95, and some knog ones, but didn't see the price of them.

Fitzroy store may have some, but I didnt see any...
