$40 jersey - material is meh, it's a 3/4 zip, and the bottom of the jersey likes to ride up, it doesn't have the grippy insert the nicer ones do. Still, it gets the job done and is very hi-vis. But you do kinda get what you pay for.

$60 (plus $8 S&H) jersey - much better fit, full zip, grippy insert keeps it in place. Well worth the extra IMO.

Found an oem 3t ergonova handlebar on a local classified site to replace my odd "ergo" curve bars I had before. I will likely use the drops finally, and maybe raise the stem for a more relaxed bar top position.


These early dark nights are killing my back tire on the trainer. Lol

Going to have to swap front and rear soon.

I pay half that for custom molded carbon graphite orthotic braces for my bum leg. Next time I'll ask them to do one for my foot with 1/2 the material, add a buckle, and then throw it up on Ebay for $2500...maybe hit it with a sharpie too for good measure.

Did some lift riding this weekend up at Taos Ski Valley. Their trails are really coming along, and actually have some nice flow to them now. I'm really excited to get a dedicated gravity rig of some kind and rip it up next year, but for now I've been doing what I can on my nimble little trail bike. First time riding lift accessed terrain with my clipless setup.. i loved it. Going to get a more downhill clipless setup when I get a gravity bike most likely.

Shitty screen cap, the lip is the rock on the far left.. overshot the landing a little bit :


Might have some vid avail later too, if my friend decides to upload. I had a blast.

Shoes that have some rubber on the bottom and pedals that have some platform around the clipless part, so if you are riding un-clipped your feet don't immediately slide off the pedal.

The standard setup is these shoes:



And pedals something like this:

^ exactly. Also, less likely to clip out when doing whips and whatnot. And even when "clipped in" there is less pressure on the ***** of your feet, as there are still "platforms" below your feet.

Need an opinion on tuning up my road bike. It's a 2008 Giant OCR2, aluminum frame, Shimano Tiagra and I think 105, maybe. It's got about 2500 miles. I've changed the tires two or three times but other than that it's been maintenance free, even the brakes have decent life on them, gears rarely miss a shift change. Is it worth bringing it in for any adjustments or things like realigning the wheels/spokes?

If it rides fine, I wouldn't waste the money on a tune up. But you might want a new chain after that much mileage- a new chain will extend the life of the gears as well.

You can check the spoke tension by gently squeezing a couple spokes together at a time- if any are significantly looser or tighter than others, they may need an adjustment. Are the wheels straight when you spin them?

Youtube has plenty of videos for doing basic adjustments to gears and brakes. I imagine if you work on cars you can do the basics yourself.

Brakes and cassette are in for the custom build tandem.

Can't wait to get the wheels and frame parts in to get going
