I have some 26mm Nuevation M28 Aero's. Which I seem to believe sit somewhere in between your Krysiums and Flos.

I have thought of jumping to some 30-35mm china carbons. Im not sure Flo30s are enough of a difference to what i have currently. Glad to hear you like them though.

I just realized that I didn't ride the MTB at all next month. I guess I'll change that on Friday.

I finished with the lead pack at the Tuesday Night World Championship last night. I don't know how the **** this happened, I picked-up 1.2mph average speed and this is all after pedaling 25 miles earlier in the day with my dad, knowing I'd be **** later that night. WTF is going on? How is this possible?

My bike computer says I averaged 21.8 which is even faster. WTF?

There are a couple possible reasons for this:

1) Most people stop racing after Tour of Lombardia (how late into fall do your club races go?), so the fast guys are in beer season.

2) The field is cleaner

3) You are dirtier

4) Your training is actually making you faster

What cat are you racing? We have a Tues night world championships here in Vancouver, Can too. I have not done them in a while, but in my day they were just as hard as some of the pro-conti races. Since it was just a "club race" guys would throw down constantly for no good reason.

Our little scene has produced some pretty good riders: 2 current pro-tour guys, and probably 12-20 pro-conti guys.

I don't race the bike, but most other guys do. The Texas winter racing season is just getting started, the weather is awesome.

Fall training in Vancouver looks like this:



It gets worse in the winter. Breeds hardness. I don't miss it.

very good. 94 Roubaix: epic race I have the VHS somewhere.

If all racing was done at 2 degrees celcius, in the rain or sleet, on cobbled roads, AAAAND allow spectators to hit the racers with 2x4's with protruding rusty nails, the race would come down to two men: Andre Tchmil and Svein Tuft. Hardmen.

MMA, boxing, NFL, etc: death from someone else shooting you with a shot gun
Pro Cycling: death from seppuku by bamboo sword.

It is probably half of the reason drugs are such a big problem in the sport. Most guys just want to survive, make a pay cheque, and not be in pain so much.

Hell of the North.

For those that don't know: one of the monuments of cycling. 260km over Napoleonic cobbled roads in the north of France in the early spring. Weather is usually shitty. Even without a single hill, it is considered by many to be the hardest race in the world.

I was disappointed that Hincapie never won. For a few years there, he had the motor, just not the luck and the team at the same time.

Oh yeah, cool wheels Trey.

Big george deserved to win, I agree. He was close. Never met george, but seemed like a nice guy.

I mulled over it for a long time, I'm happy with the decision. It's kind of like the 6UL of bike wheels. I wish someone made a quality, affordable frame.

Learn to weld, make own frame?


Alternatively, lean to do composite layup, make own frame.

Though seriously I wish someone with the capacity would decide that an injection molded fiber reinforced ballistic nylon frame would be. I mean we're talking $3k+ weight bikes for walmart prices.

I'd love to see the tooling required to make an injection molded frame... as it is, carbon frame tools can cost up to $100k PER SIZE. Injection molding tools are more expensive/complex etc. Gonna have to sell a lot of cheap frames to recoup that initial investment...

Anyone seen these cast aluminum DH bikes? Pretty neat, but they are heavy, come in one size and aren't cheap enough to justify it.

injection molded plastic tooling would probably look a lot like that cast bike tooling and cost less since its for plastic.
