Went out yesterday with the idea of just getting in a few miles as it was 97* and very humid. I have four segments laid out on my Strava but decided to not get into that mindset and just have a nice...

Go and get some seat time on each of the bikes. They are going to be about the same quality of components but the frame/fit is what is going to keep you on or off the bike in the long run.

It was my first day with the temps in the 90's so I decided to take it easy and see how I fared. Surprised myself and feel good. At 70 I did not want to go out to hard and not be in any shape...

Thank you for this. What pressure do you run? I have been running 70-73 as close as I can tell with my gauge. I weigh 185-7 and would ride on mostly rough paved and small gravel.
