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

Oh, I've got 4 already as well, I don't need more.

Rode a little over 30 miles this morning in 80°+ temps. I drank about 550 ml of water. Which is low for me at that distance and temp. Garmin, in all of its wisdom, reported “record consumption.”

What?

More aero if you reach down and grab a fork leg in each hand to steer.

How can this saddle be comfortable? It's numbing.

You still could. The only difference is the anchor holding stupid down.

Dunno, haven't tried it yet. Someone was blowing them out for $20 so I couldn't say no. Definitely needs to be tilted down a bit, even after putting on a rear tyre. It's geared towards upright riding position.

They say those cutouts are a cure-all
