I will. Sadly I've taken ill recently, very much so, and won't be riding for a while.

Default TCX cross bike

Orange!

New cross bike. If I go to nats in Reno this year, my B bike has to be drop bars. No flat bar bikes at UCI races. So my Van Dessel Full Tilt Boogie is being left in Gravel Bike trim with a 2x Di2 setup. The FTB is cushy but not particularly stiff. Great for gravel races but too whippy for cross. So I replaced it with this new TCX. Hi modulus carbon, very light and stiff frameset. Rival 1 group is really heavy though. Swapped some of my old race wheels on, old XTR cranks with Stage meter, 3T Ergonova Carbon bars replace the OEM alloy bar, and an old ti railed saddle replace the OEM Manganese rail tank. SS cages and voila, race bike. 17.8 lbs as pictured. Wish it was lighter but that would require a new grouppo. Meh, this is good enough. China carbon tubs, Bitex, Sapim race, Challenge Grifo Team 33c with a splash of Orange seal.

Good to see you're healthy enough to ride a bicycle again.

My cycleops gives an equally dirty power signal. My tacx though, smooth as butter.

But yeah, smart trainers do get bitches.

I was using the Stages meter in that screen, not the native meter. I changed that last night, performance is way up. Not sure how to get cadence with the Stages meter and power with the trainer.

Your wife better ask whatever fake god you pray to that you never, ever see me IRL again because I am going to kick you so hard in the genitals that she will have to seek virility in another man.


Also, I don't know that I will make it up the hills with a 42 tooth crank and 11-28 or 11-32, not sure I want to roll around on 11/32 either with those gearing gaps.

Mile 65/100

Did our local popular century this year again
Last Year.................... This year
102 mi .........................102mi
5200ft......................... 6000ft
14.1mph avg ..............16.6mph avg
7:06............................. 6:15

Pretty happy with these results, considering I've only done about 2000mi since the ride last year. Need to find more time to ride, perhaps a beater Emonda ALR for wet/winter too, since the Zwift/Trainer setup and I don't always get along. Added a few things too

Stages crank arm
Bontrager Aeolus 5 wheels
52/36 chainrings to replace my old 50/34
Wahoo BOLT computer (love this thing)
XXX carbon bars
Bontrager Pro stem (90mm now, going to try a 100 this weekend)
Bontrager Paradigm RXL (XXX) saddle

Bike is basically set, just need more miles. Trying the 100mm stem because on the hoods after 60mi or so I start getting some aching in my lower back, almost feels like I'm cramped a bit. Also want more length when in the drops. I def think a 54cm is the right size for me, tried a 56 the other day (which is 20mm longer frame and 10mm longer stem than mine) and i definitely felt out of place on it. We'll see if the longer stem helps.

This was on your slash i take it? You just minnarr'd your bike. That's a 1/100 shot. Bummer, but I'd still be rocking a CF bike even after that lol. I take it you'll be able to get a crash replacement triangle?

Yesterday was my Wreckoning.



I crushed a rock through the downtube on my Trek Remedy last year:


This was through the rubber/plastic belly guard too. I'm done with plastic bikes- they don't last for me. I don't care about weight anymore- just have to get strong.

Rhetorically speaking, how big would the dents in comparable aluminum frames have been?

not sure- I think both of them would have been ride-able. The white bike would have been almost exclusively in tension too- I've seen dents pop out or get more shallow from use.
