Last time I raced Boulder Roubaix, I thought I needed to be fast on the road and the gravel would just be survival. I was wrong... The road was slow, the gravel was like a crit. At midnight. I hope these help a bit.

You should find a couple other guys that want to kill it on the tarmac, and see how that goes.

Last time I was so gassed hanging with those guys after the dirt, it was all I could do to recover to hang with on the next section. If it was all dirt then all pavement, I would give it a shot if I were feeling good. Unfortunately, it's around a mile or two of dirt, a mile or two of pavement throughout the lap of 15 or so miles.

Ahhh, yeah if all the tarmac sections are short then I guess that wouldn't work, need a nice long stretch.

No good deed goes unpunished. (The last line makes it such a feel-good story)

WhyFi curious about your thoughts.

Challenge lists their Strada Bianca Pro as hookless compatible in 33 and up. Enve lists the 30 as approved on their 25 wide SES AR. Wondering if you’d trust it or stick with what the manufacturer says. Since Zipp doesn’t test- I’m thinking I can trust the 30, but who knows.

I imagine that the 33 is about as fast as the GP5k 32 since the 36 is only like a watt slower. I’m probably over thinking it.

Huh. I wonder if it's just a pressure thing. Looking at their chart, they seem pretty conservative on the wide rim front, as well - they don't even want their 30mm on a 23mm int width rim. I used to reference Enve's compatibly chart for the G23, since it has the same internal width, but I they don't seem to have a compatibility chart for that wheelset anymore. :foo:

I'd personally skip it, unless I found them really compelling vs other options.

Also- I don’t know if you’ve used the Rapha down size, but if you do, you can use the jersey discount on the bundles. I got some core cargo bibs and a core lightweight jersey for 120 bucks.

Do they just pass along a personalized discount code? I assume, then, that you can go with any color you want, too? I haven't inquired in to a size-down, yet, but I'm probably going to soonish. A couple of weeks ago, I got an LS Pro Team Training jersey in M, and I'm liking the fit more than two SS versions that I have in L.

Oh, FWIW, I'm loving the LS PTTJ :love:. The front-facing panels of the SS version are really airy, but the LS version is still light enough for year-round use, I think. Since I wear sun sleeves all of the time, anyway, that's perfect for me.

Yah, they give you a single use code that can be used on any jersey in any color.

Ill have to look at the PTTJ- was thinking about nabbing one

I wish the the PTTJs had the little zipped valuables pocket, but other than that, I love 'em - highly recommended. The material feels nicer than the Core (and that's not saying that the Core is bad), they're lightweight and stretchy, and the sleeves are a little longer (in the SS version). They are not made for modesty, though - sized properly, they've got that almost painted-on fit and they can be a little see-though, particularly in lighter colors.

I have been pleased with the Core line- I wish the lightweight had the valuables pocket But I can live without.

I have some Eliel stuff that is painted on, it’s super lightweight and has the valuables zipper as well. I need to broaden my jersey brand horizons, maybe some T6

That depends on what you mean by "end", and what you mean by "near".

I was thinking the same thing myself. But just remember: When one Addiction thread closes, another one opens.

*smh*

A couple of weeks ago a a guy was shot and lay dying on the street. Video footage shows two un-involved people going through the dying man's pockets. Stay classy, Philly.

I attended a deposition in the very law firm conference room where Clinton was deposed in that matter.
