Rode the cervelo tonight. Really wish I had a power meter on that thing. Just going by feel, the cervelo requires way more effort to do anything compared to the madone. Maybe I am just tired, but I have this area I dubbed the gauntlet. Itís at the end of my ride and I always sprint it, itís the last busy section of road to my neighborhood. Always a lot of traffic and two stop lights, iíd say itís about a half a mile long. On the madone I usually get up to 32-35 mph easily without my heart rate going above 167. Today I could go any faster than 24 mph, out of the saddle on the drops.
Both my brakes have a slight rub, I have tried time and time again to squash that to no avail, but could that really be causing that much more effort? Thatís gunna be an issue since this my race bike at the moment.

I wish I was better with bikes, and had the time. I would love to just completly dismantle it and rebuild it.

No time like the present to learn. I feel the same way. I may strip and re-build the R3 as a learning exercise. For some reason, not getting as many bites on it as I hoped

how much and what size?


The issue isnít my technical experience, the issue is time and my wifeís perception of how I use it. If I am doing yard work there is nothing wrong with me working from sun up to sun down. Second I start doing anything with a bike she starts asking when I will be done after about 30 mins. This causes me to rush and thatís when I make mistakes.

I'm sure that the bikes feel way different, though, and that's going to play in to impression of both speed and effort relative to speed; you're not slogging as much as you think you are on the Cervelo and you're not effortlessly laying waste to the tarmac on the Madone - it's just that the different feedback from the bikes is shaping your perception.

Since you don't have power on the Cervelo, take a look at recent rides and compare Av HR and speed between both bikes. My bet is that, adjusted for HR/effort, they're going to be very, very close.


You are probably right.

It was a very lonely experience. They had a Spanish newspaper with pics from the Superbowl and the guys were trying to help me read it. IIRC someone grabbed Andersons' face mask and almost pulled his head around. Don't remember much else about the game.

They let me go after I think one or two weeks. They said I was too fast and scarfing up too much work and the other guys objected. Plus, the guy I replaced wanted to come back.

I watched that one in a bar in Sacramento. I was the only Bengals fan in the place.

Off to see my cardiologist for no reason other than for him to talk about bikes and say, "See you in a year."

I awoke at 3:30, in part due to dog noise and in part due to being cold. My wife missed the testing cut-off on Friday, and is asymptomatic, so I can't go crawl in with her and warm up. I took a hot shower instead. My sister and bil are sleeping in separate rooms for similar reasons. They have a brand new granddaughter and he was exposed recently.

my wife started having some miscarriage symptoms on Thursday and unfortunately they have not gone away. Doesnít necessarily mean she is going to have one, but since she has had one in the past (4 years ago) sheís on edge and we are both worried. Going to the doctor to confirm. The worst part is, I canít go in to the doctor office to be with her. Covid restrictions I have to stay in the car.

Because someone had $50 million they didn't know what to do with.

Hope it's okay! We went through a couple of those and, well, you know how bad it is.

I have decided to try to get through February with no news or politics.

In other news we are buying daughter a car. I am simply stunned at the price, especially with WA taxes.

One should definitely move to OR, buy a car, then move back to WA. :)
