Evening Commute -- Actually I ended up leaving work early (just after 11:00 AM) to help my wife deal with our apt complex because the heat had gone out, I ended up putting in about 10 miles between various errands before all was said and done, so about 1hr and 5 min of running around between home, the bank, grocery store, etc.

Morning Commute 11/4/19 - 35F, 5.4 miles in 30 min.

I was running about 5 minutes faster on average with my old bike, than the new one. I'm chalking most of it up to the trigger shifters that despise downshifting. I end up spinning in lower gears a lot more just so I can be in a lower gear for a take off at the next stop. With the Trek and it's grip shifts I could cycle through gears a lot more quickly than these particular trigger shifters seem to allow.
