Start of a 2011 tour in Missoula, MT. Just noticed that the bike locked to the rack has disk brakes. My helmet locking system got broken during the flight out. Fortunately, we were camping around the corner from an REI before the first day of riding. I was able to purchase a new one, but the ventilation was not great.

I've seen things, man.

First solid training week of the season: 12 hrs in the bike, 10 in Z2. Feeling good and looking forward to a day off (if you don’t count the weights).

This crit may have been the toughest yet. Holy crap. IF of .99. Made the selection but was too gassed to do much for the sprint. I'll take 7th, because there were some fast guys that were dropped.

Nice. You can have some food this week. You wiped out some calories.

Half the data on this is made-up stuff. Convince me I'm wrong.

😂 Yeah. The bike was a replacement for the LHT I had stolen from my house in December. Guess I forgot to have it removed. Itís been long gone.

That tent alone was 6.5 lbs. There were two of us. I made the GF carry my heavier sleeping bag and I took hers. I carried virtually all the common gear like cooking stuff. She towed a BOB trailer. With the dry bag itís listed at 18 lbs.

I have to say, the flip flops were well integrated.

Nicely done sir.

I’ve never self-supported toured but always wished that I had at some point. I feel like I’m missing out.

Should have loaded it all in the trailer.

Thank you

Okay, now I have to admit it - I have too many bikes.

I decided earlier in the week that I wanted to ride the Canyon tomorrow, since it's been clamped to the trainer and hasn't turned a wheel IRL since January 1. So, I figured I'd wash it, since it has been sweated on so much for 3 months. As long as I had all the stuff out, I decided to also wash the Litespeed, having not washed it since I built it up with the Dura Ace kit. Then I figured I'd also do the Battaglin, since I rode it on some warm rides and sweated all over it. Then I fiddled with the Ritchey a bit, including installing new bottle cages, having stolen its to put on the Litespeed.

Now I desperately want to ride every one of them!!! I have too many bikes for the number of days I'm able to ride outdoors in any given week.

That would not have gone over well, especially since she was only 5í tall and 105 lbs. soaking wet.

We know.

Can one have too many bikes? Iím not sure itís possible.

Perhaps it's more a question not of having too many bikes, but rather too little spare time.

I have recently gone from 5 complete riders to 2. I'd like to bring that up to three but want to fill the third spot with a bike that's still in Illinois. I miss the variety and it feels a little odd that I don't have a riding vintage bike, but I'm currently really happy with my Holdsworth and I just ride that thing all the time. Plus I still have a couple old framesets that I really like just hanging around the house :thumb:

Fixed for me.

You're not trying hard enough. Here's 10 bikes in 8' x 4' x 8'.

I did it once, in 2019, for only a few hundred miles. I couldn't believe I hadn't done it before. Such a buzz!
