Just planned a half dozen of my "go to rides" in Strava. Ranging from half hour blasts to 5h loops.

I hope once I get out and start smashing them that the estimated times start going down. All of my strava rides have been casual, so im optimistic I can get it down.

FINALLY found a good deal on 105 5700 shift levers.

It happened to come with a 105 rear derailleur to replace the one on my steel bike too, pretty good score!

Just need to grab the wheels from the bike shop that I have verbally committed to, get cable housings, and a chain to finish off my carbon bike.

Tomorrow, first big climbing ride since broken hip socket last May. 7 mile climb with last mile at 14%. Looking forward to riding it on the new Synapse.

Crash into car. Closed reduction, open repair (surgery). 3 months non-weight bearing for bone to heal. Then rebuild. So far no signs of necrosis or arthritis, thank God. Dr. says fully out of danger for those in 2 more months. Insurance is settled. My underinsured motorist from MY auto policy paid more than the offending driver's liability. Make sure you have that coverage.

If I had that kind of coverage extended to cycling I'd have $10k more than I do now.

No special policy, just standard underinsured driver. It had nothing to do with me on the bike, only to do with tha fact that he was in a motor vehicle.

So your vehicle uninsured policy? Or do you have some other uninsured driver policy?

If your vehicle, I would have never imagined it extended to another mode of transportation.

Surprised me too. But yes, my normal auto policy. Like $30 per 6 months total for my three cars. Again, the fact that I was on a bike had nothing to do with the fact that the driver of the car, who was at fault, was underinsured.

State Farm denied my claim, which is what I expected but my agent told me to try.

May have covered if I had been walking, I don't know? My insurance is SC Farm Bureau.

Here is one Texas law firm's opinion.

Best looking DuraAce crankset I've ever seen. I guess shading is important. Still, the shifters offend my sense of asthetics.

I own and have only used 105, so I don't know anything better. One day I'll break down and buy that crank, it's pornographic.

Queue Savington to whine and cry about the DA crank.

I haz a saddle sore. How do I know if the problem resides with the saddle, chamois, or lack of a cream on my taint? The sore is directly under a sit bone.

Who wants pics?

Saddle sores: hard to diagnose cause. I think chamois is the primary variable for most normal situations, but a Brooks B-17 saddle will allow street shorts.

The reason I say chamois is primary is that some brands of shorts (Hincapie) always give me problems, when other brands rarely do.

Sorry for continued OT, but your agent sucks.

Any agent worth a damn knows what claims will and won't be denied, so you ended up with a claim on your record for nothing.

/OT

Saddle soreness for me was always because of my seat position. Usually due to the seat being too far back or not perfectly level. Pay attention to any unconscious shifts your butt makes to see if you are shifting forwards or backwards to compensate for the seat not being right.

Or just ride more! I love the chamois creame that comes in a deodorant type bottle. You just roll it on the gooch and the cheeks easy peasy...no more getting it all over your hands before a ride.
