Fillet brazed steel is OK, but why pair it with the rounded fork? Old and new mix. Use a proper sloped or flat fork crown, even better (but only aesthetically) is bent forks.

Nothing like an hour of climbing- standing up the entire way turning 30 RPM (because singlespeed)...

This is where I feel both cheated and ultra-weak. I sometimes get to go to places like this but it's always overshadowed by mountain lion hunting me since I'm constantly gasping for air and basically look like an injured animal.


Speaking of that area, I'm going to try and schedule a work trip to southern NM during the Tour of the Gila.

That primal fear should be good motivation to pedal harder


Edit: i see you have a thing for Cannondale.

Not really, it just happened that way. The beer bike was dirt cheap from Johnwag and it might have 50k miles on it from the previous owner, the vintage road bike was my first foray into road cycling and was the cheapest I could find, MTB was the cheapest HT 29er with a decent group ($300 cheaper than Spesh) and also "motherfuckingawesome blue", and the CAAD10 is the go-to Al frame for people who live in poverty.

If I didn't have the bills from the broken arm I'd be on something more expensive, the $9k out of pocket changed things a bit. However, after riding ~10 bicycles, some more than others, there is a very short list of frames that I'll ever replace this CAAD10 with. It may have saved me money in the long-run.

My first Tuesday night WC ride of the year is tomorrow and I really hope the dude with the bull-horn who announced "You are not Lance Armstrong!" or "Lance Armstrong does drugs!" is still there in his yard, waiting on us.

Officially "training". Did an hour of intervals just to get back into it.

Did 590kcal in 50 minutes on the trainer. Its not the same as real roads I know, but Im feeling pretty good about it for ~5months off spinning. I believe that's about 200w avg for the hour with some serious breaks to catch my breath LOL.

Feeling weak compared to the strava bros on here.


On another note: Im in desperate need of real cycling shoes. I was wasting a lot of energy flexing the **** out of my normal gym shoes.

Lol. Like I said, self esteem booster. I have the riding habits of Joe. I want to do more once the salt goes away.

I hear that. They are calling for 8-12" of snow here today, putting my thoughts of riding outdoors on hold.

Do I need to be more formally training to make progress, or can I just keep doing what I'm doing which is "trying to hang on to the fast group"?

Also, last night's ride was fast and I'm really obsessed with the road surface and catching cracks. It's kind of to the point where riding in a group isn't much fun. I'm kind of feeling like the broken arm has really tainted cycling for me and it's not much fun now.

Dilemma.

Selling my steel bike and I think I tossed the stock **** derailleur so im likely going to sell it with the ultegra 6600RD.

Being that Im not going to have a shimano RD, I can get a sram lever/shifter or shimano.

Seems like budget wise I would be considering Rival lever/RD or 105 lever/RD.

OPTIONS!

Seems like you could buy a $20 derailleur and put it on the steel bike.

the ultegra derailleur that's on the bike was a $20 used purchase. Its not a huge loss, but would force me to get something else.

I will chat with the kid when he comes to buy the bike. Im not going to do anything until its gone. Hes coming on Friday.
