Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It does, but frankly I like how I can get the data off the Cateye with gloves on and frankly I'm used to it. You can see by the sweaty fingerprints on the Karoo that I'm still getting used to it!

Literally no other adjustments? That... doesn't seem right. My guys spent 30 minutes on just my feet and made a bunch of seemingly minor tweaks that rocked my world.

It was a full 3 hour session, we tried all kinds of stuff, did some video analysis, talked through my pain points etc. I think the person knew what they were doing but I sorta stumped them...
The other takeaway was to just try some new saddles, but by the time we got to this conclusion it was about 3 hours in and I technically only paid for 2 hours.

Just my $.02 and obviously don't know your circumstances, but I can't imagine a bike fitting makes much financial sense until you've probably spent at least 500 miles (arbitrary number) on the bike you have. ie. I think probably a waste of money for a new cyclist on a new bike with no real miles on a bike.

I put 1400 miles on the bike before finally trying a professional fit.

Favero Assioma & BBR60




Rockin the power meters for winter.
Seem to be a more reasonable purchase these days.

Now off to fix a squeaky BB. Hopefully it's what fixes it.

To get me back interested in some pain on the TT bike, picked up some stuff.

Bodypaint 3.3 skinsuit on sale. I could have saved another $30 if I waited another month, but whatever. Still got it 1/2 off what they usually run. No joke, I'm a good weight and height to fit a size medium in it and it still takes a solid 5 to 7 minutes to pull on. Zero creases or folds. This will be raceday only attire. My old skinsuit I can get in in like a minute but it's nowhere near as nice.



PDQ/open mold TT cockpit from Planetx. I needed more adjustability for stack and something that doesn't clamp onto a round bar, in other words it won't rotate on bumps. Also bought two Bayonet stems for my Felt DA so I can dial the reach in perfectly. I started by ditching the 100mm and going with a 60mm, feels amazing so far. First ride on the combo with a little more stack I put out a whole 25w more than usual. The stack on my old bars/pads was permanently fixed and stupid stupid low.

All the pics of those seem to be copyrighted/blocked, but you can google it. Pretty sharp kit and good initial quality. They stole the Cammish PDQ design and now it's an "open mold" product.
