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

Man I even miss Di2 on the trainer, even though there's no way I'd spring for it there. What I really need for it is an Ekar cassette body. Front shifts are not fun on the trainer.

Besides being old and weak, I have small hands, think wide with short fingers. I rode our tandem a couple weeks ago and could hardly shift the mechanical front triple. After a few years of Di2 and eTap on four bikes, I don't want to go back to cables.

I'm so lazy that I plug in a remote top shifter for the rear on the trainer.

Is there a proper way to doing intervals? Yesterday I did 30x30. Target power was 400 watts. At the start of each interval I would stand for prolly the first 10 seconds to get going and to dial in 400 watts pretty quickly. Is that normal practice? or should I dial it up staying seated since it’s not sprint practice.


Or am I over thinking it like I over think everything.

Really, what I might do is drop it off at the shop when I'm in BDR for two weeks and have them swap it to a 46x11-34 setup. That gets nearly the same range as I have now (more or less missing one gear on each end) and larger gaps overall but mostly the same in the middle where I spend most of my time. And much cheaper than anything else.
