If by that you mean September and Jingle Cross, then yes I am.

I'm sure a jolly old man in a red coat has new tires for under your tree or something...

Curious -- for those of you with easily-customizable computers (aka Wahoo) what numbers do you like to have on your screen?

I don't have a power meter so I'm thinking:

Elapsed Time
HR /Cadence
Speed

And that's it, can't really think of anything else I'd need to know for 45 minutes.

I tend to hide my HR, because I get a bit psyched out by it, I think it's always higher in a race due to adrenaline and such. Time is good, just to know how much suffering time is left lol I was intending on using my powertap wheel to use late last year and never got around to it, on the fence whether it'll actually be valuable this season or if I should just keep it set up for my road bike

Solid point. Might try w/o HR and see what happens.

I don't include HR, not because it psyches me out, but rather because its just not useful in a cross race. HR gets pegged quickly and then the lag won't really give you any type of idea if you are recovering properly etc. Pretty funny to look at it after though

What tires are people running? I just ordered a set of Donnelly PDX. Then 2 minutes later realized they weren't tubeless. Oops. Though I still need to order a tubeless wheelset though too

Tentatively planning on running Vittoria Terreno Dry 40mm tires on dry dry days. That's the kinda hexagonal shaped file tread with side knobs.
