Sun sleeves, not arm warmers. TTKU.

Not yet as such, but has always sweated like a champ. Likely why her best races are all in the worst heat.

Supposed to do another gravel event today, 66miles with about 6600 climbing. The guy who runs it emailed Friday and said it was dry, dusty and fast so I put 40mm slicks on. We got a **** ton of rain overnight so itíll probably be a touch wet, hopefully the tires work fine. Itís supposed to rain in and off all day too. Should be fun- at least itís not rainy and 38 degrees!

It’s still a bit damp here. Time to ride!

Tixkokob is awake and online. I had a clean, steady feed and now it's buffering continuously..Shortly they'll get up, eat breakfast, and get on about their day.

I was rolling my bike on the last ride and heard a slight noise. I found that the front disc was lightly rubbing. I centered the caliper and trued the rotor and all is well again.

One always wonders how long this has been going on and is that why I’ve been crap on the bike lately. Doubtful, but I now have an excuse. ::thumb:

Are they any kind of special "cool black" type of material? I've only bought white sun sleeves because the radiant heat on my black jerseys certainly seems more intense than when I'm wearing a lighter jersey. None of them are wundermaterial, though.

My momís family used to do that, but with Old Bay. Grandma would steam them with some beer. Only time I ever saw her touch alcohol. I tried it one night when we had a house near the shore for a week. Gave up after about 3 and made a ham sandwich.

Donít believe so. Not with the letters I had already tried.

Yes, I forget which brand they are but specifically anti-UV and IR. Coldblack is still hotter than white with the same UV/IR properties, but it's not far off.

She's also way less heat-sensitive than you are. ;)

Just tried this. I like it. Appeals to the crossword part of me.
