Even 40į and sunny there is nice. Much nicer than ďsimilarĒ conditions in Austin. The problem is when itís 5į with howling wind.

Could have ridden into work today on roads no more than damp, but conditions are supposed be little short of Noachian by the time I can leave.

It's a dry cold.

I was driving home from the store Sunday, it's about a 1.5 mile steady grade with stop signs and speed bumps, and there was a guy on a board coming down. He was shirtless, no helmet, and lying on his stomach. First time seeing that around the 'hood.

Larry Sellerz?

I was riding ITG (In The Garage) vs IRL last night, and tried a new route on Makuri Island which turned out to be gravel, so I stopped and changed to the Zwift Gravel Bike, which was faster on gravel but real damn slow on the paved sections. If Zwift had its wits about it, instead of merely making road bikes much slower on gravel sections, they'd send downward spikes of zero resistance to your trainer to mimic wheel slip. I know it would require a lot more sophisticated program, and I have no idea how to implement it, but here I am with a perfectly splendid idea and nobody will pay me for it.

I don't. The sun does. It went bye bye. :(

I watch it on the Olympic Channel, which I get on my Dish Network service.

Did you drop in to see if they'd set up the Echo Valley Corn Maze yet?

Nope. I only saw what was visible from 11E.

Arenít the Zwift gravel sections really just dirt?

Mojo31 09-01-21 09:47 AM

Poseur upgrade time for the Domane.

Yeah, I know.

Dunno. I'm on fairly low res. Also I don't make any distinction - off road is off road.

At this point I may just stick with cable shifting vs. bite the bullet and get Etap, I think the marginal rip-off cost of the SRAM eTap is less than the marginal cost of getting a professional welder to update the 12 year old Ti frame plus cost of internal wired Di2.

I watched the whole GNC preview of the new groupset, and the said that DuraAce and Ultegra would be available in rim brake versions. I'm not sure if they would be wireless, though.

Only the disc brake versions are wireless. Also, the rim brake STIs don't get the new shape.
