Mail call!

A couple of HPXes to cut down on moving pumps from bike to bike all the time, and some fresh tyres, as I've a couple of 26ers pretty much worn out.

I think the $1800 CAADX comes with one of the GRX variants.

I didn't think people spent a lot of money on CX bikes because they get pretty trashed by mud and grit. I know some mud races you can have a second bike in the pits and switch bikes every lap and your pit crew cleans them during the race. My friends have had extra wheels in the pits and at mud races they provide a garden hose to knock most of the mud off after the race.
For a lot of cross races I don't see how a bike can make much difference as long as it's working.

Ryan Trebon rode his MTB with the Lefty fork at a damp race in Vancouver, USA. I guess he figured it wasn't a UCI event, so might as well have fun. I bet his XC rig was only a pound or so heavier than his CX rig back then...

Same here, no bike list or part lust at all. Mostly just hand wringing on whether or not Iím going to try Strada Bianca 33s for a tire, theyíve been in my cart for days.

At the other end of the frame pump spectrum; I picked up one of these for the commuter yesterday.

Yeah, CX bikes shouldn't be too precious. Serious racers with a $4k budget are going to get a second set of wheels or a second bike.

Today was tricky. My brain was hurting on my third word. Then it finally dawned on me.

Wordle considers it a win if you get the word within six. Today was unusual in that I felt like guessing after the first two scanning words I always use. Normally I use three scanning words and play to get it in four.

I am seriously considering a September tour in North Dakota that would include Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

Not Saratoga likely - Fort Collins os the leader, or maybe stay in Austin.

Both sound better.

Global is allegedly building another fab here if the CHIPS act passes (I assume it will).

Looks like recovery is coming around.

Any relationship to the real estate developer?

Bah Humbug 03-31-22 10:42 AM

Yeah that was the best run, by far, since the crash. Did my favorite warm-up ride (Amalfi coast, predominantly downhill interspersed with some uphill surges) and then rolled out on the run... and it felt just like running should. Cadence drooped after the first mile as the vim ran out of my legs, but my hip barely barked at all. Now to see what tomorrow is like.

Real estate developer? No, not aware of one with my last name at all. Poor New England farmers...

CNY is too cold anyway, right? Although the allure of Whiteface Mountain being just a 2 hour drive....hmm.....

Everything colder that HI is too cold anyway. CO is better than CNY, but still. Mountains... I clearly have no interest in winter sports.
