I'm sure the sealant will fill the gap.

I have plenty of replacements after those $30-35 Rocket Ron and nobby nic sales.

Someone sent out a mass email for people who want to help in an area next year. The email said, "Let's meet at X time and start getting organized." It did not say, "Would X be a good time to meet? Let me know."

Nonetheless, four people (so far) have replied all saying they'll be there. No one asked. SMH.

Run it til you hear a hissing sound.

My rear tire on the mtb is almost bald in the center. I don't know how much good the knobs do on hard pack anyway.

Not a proper cherry though. 😔

For $26 I expect better.

Hell, for $26, you could buy a couple jars of Luxardo cherries.

So there I was on Zwift, tooling around Watopia, minding my own business as I warmed up, planning as usual to do a spin-down as soon as I reached 10 minutes, when the C. Cadence Pace Partner group swarms past me. So, based on WhyFi's suggestion, I took off after them. For a group rolling along at about 2.5W/kg, they took a surprising amount of time at 300-400W to catch! But I settled down into the group, and was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to stay with them. Previously, I'd had difficulty - first I'd overshoot the group, then I'd back off too much and they'd pass and drop me, then I'd chase back on only to overshoot again - lather, rinse, repeat. I guess I've gotten more used to slight adjustments in power, the occasional mini-surge, etc. Rode with them for 10 minutes, then they went one way and I went another.

I'd forgotten that if you did start out choosing 'Ride With Pace Partner', you'll just keep doing whatever route you chose, and so will they. So stopped the game and restarted, this time choosing "Ride With C. Cadence". Average power for the 43 minutes I was on was 191W, which means I spent a lot of time at the threshold of Z2 and Z3. I suspect it would be easier if I turned 'Trainer Difficulty' to zero, so it would just be constant resistance. But where's the fun in THAT?

I awoke with this song playing in my head. It will replace that Bonnie Raitt tune as today's earworm. I might just take the time to listen to the entire album. It's a good one.

funny story.
The owner of a local Irish style bar I used to be a regular @, used to put on a biyearly trip back to Ireland. There was lots and lots of alcohol and pubs, singing dancing and general drunken fun. Bill, the owner used to be quite fond of his singing voice and after a couple too many, would put it on display for all to hear. One such night in the middle of a traditional Irish ditty "some guy" jumps on the stage where Bill is belting them out. And proceeds to steel the show from him. That guy, Rod Stewart, was unrecognized by Bill who wanted to give him a proper thrashing. They had to show him the juke box album with his (Rod) picture on it to prove that he was "somebody". There was even video of most of it. It was on vhs, that's how long ago it happened.

That is true, but you won't know that unless you check the oil.

Just made an attempt of the london pri ride. I have nothing to do today so I figured 108 miles and 8600 feet of climbing was a great way to spend the day.

First to box hill climbs I felt great, went a little harder than I should. On the third attempt I realized Ibmade a mistake and by the fourth attemp my legs were spent.
Feels pretty pathetic ended it at 27 miles and almost 2000 feet.

Gunna take a break and do some zone 2 later.


Since I started zwifting my legs feel more fatigued now than they have ever felt, yet on intervals my loads are way down.


I was working pretty good this ride, I was coasting down the hills but it the rest of the time I was working. I feel like intervals down plays indoor rides.

Yesterday I did 20 miles outside at walking pace and the load was hire than the 27 miles I just did. :foo:

No, that's not what's happening,

So, what you need to consider with load is that it's dependent upon/relative to your FTP. It's your Intensity^2 x duration (hours) x 100. So if you're at FTP for one hour, you have a load of 100 (1.0^2 x 1hr x 100). If you're at 85% of FTP for 2 hours, it's a load of 144.5 (0.85^2 x 2hrs x 100).

When you got your power meter, you spent a good amount of time with an FTP that was significantly too low, which was artificially inflating your load; any time that you see a ride with a load greater than 100/hour, that's a great big red flag because, you know - that'd be spending the entirety of the ride with a normalized power above FTP.

So yeah, I hate say it, but now that your FTP is more accurate, your load is being calculated more realistically.

Sweet mother lard....you turned cycling into a frigging story problem, you sick basted! Lol

Now I wish my gut would come out of post-heavy workout shutdown so I can eat dinner.

nice

So the head set knocking on zwift really was bothering me. I would tighten it and it seemed to help then go right back to knocking.

I pulled the fork and hold dirt batman. It was pretty gross. I donít think iíve cleaned it once since I got the bike. I donít have any grease so I didnít do a complete wipe down. Put it back together so far it passes the shake test hopefully that will fix it.

Good, come fix mine then...

So I arrived home after work yesterday. The whole house smelled like plastic... guess who was supposed to wax his chain the day before....... Glad I didn't burn the house down...

I can hold efforts longer as well. There are a couple of longer climbs around here that are ~30 minutes where I can average 300ish but could never maintain the same indoors

Iíve had good results with chiropractors, more than one has brought me consistent relief. Even if it was just placebo effect, anything thats effective in relieving chronic back pain is welcomed.
