Rode 24 miles today on the Domane with GR1 35mm tires setup tubeless on the Paradigm 25s. Wanted to compare them to my Aeolus Pro 51s with GP5000 tires. The GR1s are slower. But smooth. Canít compare the entire route. Broke a rear drive side spoke with 8 miles left. The 35 mm tires measure 37mm wide. Just enough room for the wobble. Good thing is I had no spoke wrench. That and a chain tool are lacking on the slick Bontrager tool that fits in the on board storage. Iíll have to fix that.

And replace the rest of the drive side spokes on the Paradigm wheel. This is spoke number 5 Iíve broken. First since switching to the Aeolus wheels for the road.

33 Miles. The road construction is getting really annoying. Detour after detour & poorly directed signs. Even the sidewalks are closed off...

I sort of rediscovered how much I like riding my Lemond Tourmalet. I had not been riding it due to making changes on a couple of other bikes, ergo, mostly riding them. I switched the Tourmalet to a Ritchey Beacon Bar, wider rimmed wheels with same 25mm Pasela PT tires, flipped the stem for a 8 deg. rise and moved a 10mm spacer from above to below the stem. I needed to make the geometry a bit more lax.
This morning was my second ride with the Beacon bar, and my first with the other changes. I got in 30 miles with a stop about halfway to fine tune the bar angle and the placement of the brifters. I am a bit surprised by how much I like the Beacon bar and the set up of the brifters. Definitely going to ride the Tourmalet again tomorrow. 775 miles to 5000 for '22.

Have you stopped vibrating from all the tree roots pushing up the pavement?

The SRT isn't that bad but yeah, the BG has a lot of bumps. Only spent about 2-3 miles on it in the Seattle area where it starts to get bad.

Used to commute on BG to Kirkland daily. Think it loosened my fillings, if not my brains.
