  1. I'm still on the (rather tumultuous) 3 train. But damn was that good racing!
  2. You are going to change so many minds tonight on the ThumperTalk Pro Racing forum.
  3. Now that Tomac's out, I want to see Webb pass Roczen. I always enjoy good racing.

    "New" saddle day! 127 grams!

    Oil sight glass after total rebuild

    I've found that the oil doesn't really show up in the glass unless it's well warmed up. As long as you put in the required amount, you should be good to go.

    Oof! Good to hear it's not much more than some bruising but that looks painful! Hopefully it heals quick! I, too, run a small LED on the front and rear when I'm commuting. I'm pretty fortunate to have literally 150+ miles of paved trail within a couple miles of my home.

    Those are pretty sweet! But I can't afford $400 pedals... I'm happy though. Carbon pedals that are under 200g for $68 shipped!

    Going to replace my Shimano pedals with these: These weigh over 100g less than my current setup and 50g less than the Dura Aces.

    Two rides: https://www.strava.com/activities/2009441484 https://www.strava.com/activities/2011090249 I'm not a high enough level yet to do Alpe Du Zwift, but I'm getting there!

    Thanks man. Trivia is fun. I don't know how you guys do it so fast though. I always take at least a minute to get through the questions... One response was to increase the resistance between the tire and roller. I was at .75 turns and next time I'll go up to 1 turn. I should focus on HR. It's much more real time.

    I just used it for the first time yesterday! https://www.strava.com/activities/2007620126 I think my wattage looks suspiciously high though. I'm using a dumb trainer and a speed sensor, but Strava actually has a resistance curve for my particular trainer.
