Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You should find a couple other guys that want to kill it on the tarmac, and see how that goes.

Last time I was so gassed hanging with those guys after the dirt, it was all I could do to recover to hang with on the next section. If it was all dirt then all pavement, I would give it a shot if I were feeling good. Unfortunately, it's around a mile or two of dirt, a mile or two of pavement throughout the lap of 15 or so miles.

Ahhh, yeah if all the tarmac sections are short then I guess that wouldn't work, need a nice long stretch.

I imagine that the 33 is about as fast as the GP5k 32 since the 36 is only like a watt slower. I’m probably over thinking it.
Huh. I wonder if it's just a pressure thing. Looking at their chart, they seem pretty conservative on the wide rim front, as well - they don't even want their 30mm on a 23mm int width rim. I used to reference Enve's compatibly chart for the G23, since it has the same internal width, but I they don't seem to have a compatibility chart for that wheelset anymore.

I'd personally skip it, unless I found them really compelling vs other options.

Do they just pass along a personalized discount code? I assume, then, that you can go with any color you want, too? I haven't inquired in to a size-down, yet, but I'm probably going to soonish. A couple of weeks ago, I got an LS Pro Team Training jersey in M, and I'm liking the fit more than two SS versions that I have in L.

Oh, FWIW, I'm loving the LS PTTJ . The front-facing panels of the SS version are really airy, but the LS version is still light enough for year-round use, I think. Since I wear sun sleeves all of the time, anyway, that's perfect for me.

Yah, they give you a single use code that can be used on any jersey in any color.

Ill have to look at the PTTJ- was thinking about nabbing one

I wish the the PTTJs had the little zipped valuables pocket, but other than that, I love 'em - highly recommended. The material feels nicer than the Core (and that's not saying that the Core is bad), they're lightweight and stretchy, and the sleeves are a little longer (in the SS version). They are not made for modesty, though - sized properly, they've got that almost painted-on fit and they can be a little see-though, particularly in lighter colors.

I have been pleased with the Core line- I wish the lightweight had the valuables pocket But I can live without.

I have some Eliel stuff that is painted on, it’s super lightweight and has the valuables zipper as well. I need to broaden my jersey brand horizons, maybe some T6

A couple of weeks ago a a guy was shot and lay dying on the street. Video footage shows two un-involved people going through the dying man's pockets. Stay classy, Philly.
