You should tweet about it.

I thought this thread was for fat ebikes primarily.

No, that makes sense. We started out before Standard Time with Noon being whenever the sun was directly over head where you were so "Noon" would not be at the same instant across any city of reasonable size.. It was hard enough to get people to agree to it being "noon" at the same time across ~900 miles.

I'm happy to report I made it up the local hill tonight in 39x23, and didn't even puke.

Better luck next time.

I got as far as doing all the updates on the laptop top and then updating zwift yesterday. This where I stopped. Maybe I'll zwift today. Supposed to rain most of the day here.

You can learn a lot on Twitter.


Shouldn't Taco Day be on Tuesday, though?

I need to start setting my alarm. Slept until 7 this morning. Being cloudy didnít help.

I overslept this morning, also. Darkness.

The cat gets me up most mornings. She has been sleeping with us since Heidi moved out. She knows to stay on my side of the bed and leave mrs datlas alone, so it's working out well.

Ha! With that multi-quote error, it almost looks like you're disapproving of the keen cycling in my gif! :lol:

I woke up "late" at 7am, too, being tired from yesterday.

Also woke with a sore shoulder from a tumble yesterday. No, not while riding, but while playing soccer with my kids afterwords. At least I didn't break my collarbone - that might have been ironic, but I'd have to refer to Alanis to be sure.

Kudos

Oh, and as is tradition, when my family heads out to the WI side of Lake Pepin, we picked up a whole pie at a particular small town (population 66) while we were out there. It was a 'bumbleberry' pie this time, with all of a bear's favorites: blueberry, blackberry, raspberry and strawberry.

The oldest guy in the club had an 11-23t yesterday, even worse than my 12-25t. I was ahead of him on the climbs, so I don't know if he was able to sit much or if he, too, stood most of the time, but I was impressed. I mean, he looked rough at the regroups, but he battled and ground up 'em.

At least he doesn't do nested quotes. Please don't go there Velo Vol !

So there is a cycling guy I ride with occasonally and he was on the Savage Century. A few of us were talking gearing, so I asked him what his bailout gear was.

His answer: "I don't know."

I asked what his small chainring up front was. Again, he had no idea.

Is that normal?!?

I'll let you know for next year. ;)

Speaking of bailouts - I like the 32/34 on my Revolt, but there are plenty of roads here that exceed 12% for short periods. The 36/30 on the R3 also gets tons of use.

I know my chain rings, but generally have no idea about the rear. If I'm doing a known hilly ride, I'll be aware of my bailout gear though. And might even put something else on. Here, I mostly ride a corncob rear
