Looks like Saturday is the good ticket now Friday used to be the best but they cut it down to one nighttime qualifying session. We still had a blast but I need more nitro.

I think ticket prices here at Pomona are the same for Saturday and Sunday.

I think I might need to buy a Halo.

93% humidity at the start of this morning's ride :notamused:

Do it now and thank me later.

There are very few cycling related products I would do a “testimonial” for. The Halo is one of them.

What's your testimony?

Without a Halo on a hot, humid ride, I would invariably get sweat dripping into my eyes which would cause significant stinging/discomfort.

With a Halo, I can ride in extreme heat/humidity and not get sweat in my eyes, and the silicone barrier is very comfortable.

Over a thousand miles in the last four weeks. Can I get a thousand in a calendar month for the first time?

Maybe.

I had a 1k calendar month last year. Not sure it'll happen this year. The family seems too intent on doing family stuff and my long rides are suffering.

Just need to tell the little lady to handle things while you are out tending to your business.








Have to learn to quickly duck in order to pull that off though.

just a couple mm. I have a 2 foot long, 1/2" dowel that I place on the brake hoods, and standing right in front of the bike, I look at the gap between the dowel and the bar top. Even a relatively small difference is easy to see.


First thing I tried. It's hydrolic brakes and I use gaffers tape on the hoses so they don't move.

I had my mechanic check it out to make sure and and the levers were a smidgen off. We had crashed the bike and had to tape the bars, straighten levers, etc. but got one slightly higher than the other. Problem solved and no more pain.


Today's ride wasn't bad. And you are right it was only off by 3/16ths or so. Toaly comfortable on the bike. Except the ticking noise is still there, might be the seat.

Prolly none. If there is a little bit, it's so little that I don't notice. And my eyes are very sensitive to sweat which stings and is quite obvious.

ls01 07-18-21 01:55 PM

105 miles today. 100 mile sub 5 hour. What a sweaty mess. Thank God it was flat.

Bah Humbug 07-18-21 02:08 PM

It's funny, for a guy who liked to call others "Johnny Lunchpail", to see how pedestrian (I see what I did there) patentcad's bike that started this all looks by current standards.

Saturday’s ride featured some of the worst heat and humidity conditions I’ve ever experienced. I thought I was going to burst into flames during the last 5 miles, which had nearly 900’ of climbing with some double digits grades. I did the walk of shame a few times.

bampilot06 07-18-21 02:45 PM

Took my disassembled cervelo c2 to my LBS to have him give a quick look at my bottom bracket since they didn’t feel the same on each side. He said the drive side was shot, it was dry and that is why it felt the way it did.

I tried figuring out what I needed in the past but the bottom brackets confuse me.

I found this one, just by goggling cervelo C 2 bottom bracket but I am not sure it will fit. Any help would be appreciated.

Why didn't you just get a BB at the shop while you were there?

they didn’t have one in stock. If I can’t find one I’ll have to get them to order it.

Honestly, I'd go with a BBInfinite if I were replacing mine.

Was a major sweat fest for us too. I needed extra water and was very pleased to find this at Hibernia Park. The water was cold and delicious.

I drank about 65 Oz. in 25 miles on an unpaved trail that was a net elevation gain. Got water in White Haven for the hills. At night there was intense rain. It rained to some degree until at least midnight. Riding the hills back to the trail early this morning I could tell why the day before was so tough. The climbing on Saturday had started with about half of this.

I'm not sure how to parse that second clause; can you please rephrase or fix typo? :foo:
