Kudos.

2 rides in on new power meter pedals. What I learned in these rides was that when I "felt" like I was going fast and hard - that was nothing. Those power numbers are handy and so far I only look at the 3-second avg, cadence, and L/R balance. Learning after over 20 years of cycling is a good thing.

so is your power higher or lower than you expected?

I'm not sure I'm liking Formula E.

Nice! Old 105 hubs?

New tiller formed kinda. I think I might need to pare it down a little more, but gonna do shakedown first. Then consider making an extension for it.

Just put one hit of teak oil on it.

The whir of electric motors instead of the roar of V-(insert favorite cylinder count)s takes some getting used to.

It can't possibly be as bad as ebike racing.

Yep, Claris level plane, some coarse sandpaper on a block and some 180 to finish. And a little bit of work done with a C&V Stanley rasp.

The day started at -2P and probably warmed up to positive single digits. I was warm enough to remove layers as I walked. It's all about wearing the right clothes for the conditions.

My wife doesn't buy it when I tell her that, so I'm not buyin' it either.

Yep, looking like it.

bampilot06 is over 200 miles for the week and got bumped off the podium - uff da! :roflmao2:

DougRNS 07-11-21 01:55 PM

I walked .500 miles without stabbing pain in my left foot due to metatarsalgia. Pain was a 2 or 3. Three weeks ago it was an 8 after the same walk. I seem to be acclimating to the heat better as well. Sciatica problem? Still the same.

Have you tried "If it ain't broke don't fix it!"?
