Cheapest was my used Pugs for $1,250 so I think you'll be somewhere between $2,000 and a few hundo.

Did you try any single track on it?
That's what I was referring to with the workout comment.
It's WAY more work in the woods compared to my Giant Anthem X 29er (or any of my other bikes).
I live in urban Baltimore, so no, no singletrack. I might wait a year or two for people to start upgrading before I get one.

Beautiful day here in New England. Well, aside from the ice on the roads that is

So, first time on the rollers in a very long (long) time. Little tricky for the first couple minutes and then, well, it's like riding a bike Really enjoyed that - not as good as riding on the street but I didn't fall off so that's always a good thing....

I didn't think my copy of the magicshine light put out the 1000 lumens they claim. Good to know that I can ride safely off-road on less than 650 lumen. Still a good use of $40.

Did not quite 3hrs today. Testing out my birthday ride route. Comes in over 45mi but that's fine. 1 flat when I missed a 'tombstone rock' on the last stretch of gravel. Hit it. Didn't flat immediately and thought I'd escaped. Psssssst! Right after the thought entered my braincase. Oh well. Go off-road, ya gotta pay to play.

Got the NYD century planned out. Lumpy for the first 2/3 then flat for the run back to Warr-town. Should be fun assuming the weather co-operates.

For the Stravassholes

Some weirdo....really, Weirdo, has set up a Strava thread as to not clutter up the cycling thread. There's no shortage of irony there is it?


See it here.

3400 miles this year. Planning 4600 for 2013 (7500 km)

Better get started early.

I had just under 5000 Garmin-documented miles. I'm certain I exceeded 5000 total since I didn't have the Garmin on several rides that werent logged. In that, I probably have four or so 200+ miles days and two 250 mile days. I may brave an event and try to break 300-350 miles in a single day in late 2013.

That's impressive. Especially for those of us that have jobs. Winter months around here it's hard to get the larger milage in with the weather and road conditions. Yesterday I did a short ride and ended up on an icy road which was a little terrifying for a while. The best that I was doing once the season turned last year was 600 miles a month. Plan is to get on it early and ride on the shitty days too, hopefully it just is wet and not snowy for the remainder of the winter. We'll see how it goes.
I'd like to have a large jump on the other local riders come spring, some of the boys put the hurt on me last year a bunch of times and that didn't sit too well with me, so I'm motivated to say the least.

I just got the Garmin 500 this fall and love it. We got my brother one for his birthday and I immediately had gear envy, so had to get one myself. I have it set up on both my bikes so I hope not to miss any rides. The wet bike is getting all the love for now and will until April.

300 to 350 miles in a day is beyond epic. We're planning a 250 KM day ride this summer and thought that was ambitious. Although its a cross ride on dirt, it still ain't no 350 miles.

I still work. I think. I doubt I do more 60-70 miles a week. The miles stack up in the brevets. If my cardiologist and wife gives me the go-ahead on the 8th, the first century is Jan 13 and then the brevets start at about one event a month. I'll attempt another 1200-km event in early May.

I have a huge advantage in that I can year-round too to your point.

5,000 miles is a Ton! Very impressive. I finished the year with just over 3,000 miles, not including the Mtn bike. So a good year for me. We are planning a NYD ride, but will see how the roads are, as it's dumping close to 8 inches of snow right now...

Are you going to add an auxilary power source, to keep your Garmin going?

I'm starting to think your mental toughness, having a partner (to some extent), and 'bent all contribute to you being able turn such big miles on so few of training miles.

I was averaging ~200mi per week, with a best of just over 400mi. I know there's no way I could do what you do, without someone for moral support, on a diamond frame.

What you do/have done is truly an accomplishment.
