It got hot here too. Currently 84F. Going back to the cold east coast in 2 days.

Did you turn around and come back down the same way?

Also have New Adventures in Hi-Fi anniversary edition on 180 g vinyl coming. Was a big fan of REM back in the day.

Yup. Went from PCH to Kanan Dune Rd, had a snack, and went back to PCH. The wind was way scarier on the way back.

I saw a special on TV last week.

I had a cassette, donít remember which one. My wife is a fan. When I watched Donny Darko recently, it had some TFF songs in it.

Here is a pic of the borrowed Felt. Can anyone explain to me why they say it’s a 61cm size? Based on the geometry (see below) I would call it a 57. :foo:

It looks like the “extension” of the seat tube to horizontal is 61cm. My Colnago is a 48 but it’s really a 52 virtual seat tube. Sloping top tubes result in whacky sizing nomenclature.

Why would you say 57? I don't think that anyone has referenced ST since semi/compact frames became the standard. As such, I'd say 59 or 60.

Living in the past? I still think of frame size as distance of ST from BB center to top.

edit: :50:

Plus, I do know that real frame size is measured by stack and reach anyway

Horizontal top tube or GTFO

Tomorrow is our last full day in LA. We are meeting our daughter for the afternoon. I have to decide whether to sleep in tomorrow or ride up Mt Baldy, which is allegedly 9.2 miles at an average 7.8%. Tough choice….

This. Also, mostly over 58 you don't get TT = ST anymore. For example, my Bianchi is a 61, but it has a 58.5cm (virtual) TT. I generally ride 58s, but the 928 was a 'race' frame that year, so the 58 would have put the bars too low. A 61 with sloping TT and everything fits - with a zero setback seatpost.

I'm pretty happy I wasn't riding a horizontal TT bike when my pedal spindle broke, so the jewels weren't stuffed back into my abdomen, where they hadn't been since I was a wee lad.

That ginormous HT, plus what looks to be a 0 rise stem, and about 3-4cm of spacers makes it look really tall. What do you normally ride?

The Habanero is a 62 but with a 57 TT. It should really be a 64 but that would give such a long head tube that fork selection would be limited.

Actually if you start at the bottom of GMR it's about 25 miles to the Village, add 4 if you go to the ski lift area.

This says 22.7 with 4664 feet. Add 2000 feet to the top and add 1400 for the return trip.

Probably gonna pass on any new Tears for Fears. Hearing that song multiple times a day for 3 or 4 years was pretty traumatic! :)

Currently grooving on Living Under Drones' latest (digital release only at the moment unfortunately)

I completely missed REM. What year did they make the scene?

I first saw them in 1983 I think, with the dB's !!!
