New parts perform nicely. Did 25 miles at about 16 mph average. Feels good. Amazing how flimsy that old cracked stem was.

Took the Rocky Mountain in the dirt for the first time today. I love it! It was a quick ride; about 4 1/2 miles of singletrack.

when you're in good shape, flatland riding gets pretty damn boring. just remember that what goes up must come down!

I think my average distance climbed in a 10 mi ride is about 60.

Anyone familiar with Revelate Designs?

Looking for bags for the Fargo - something that will carry enough gear for a couple of days unsupported.

Revelate Designs - Eric Parsons - anyone used his stuff before?

Put in 48 miles today riding from home to Shasta Dam and back. Covered over 20 mi. of dirt multi-use trail and singletrack on the way out. The ride back was all slab. This was my first real ride in 2 weeks (thanks cold virus!). I think it may have been my longest single ride ever! The lactic acid burn in the quads was exquisite.

New to me, but their stuff looks the business. Resonable prices, too.

Just back home from the Central ADV rally. LG and I drove up to Askel's place so I could bicycle down with him. 10 hours later, Askel and I roll in. That was Friday. Saturday was spent recuperating, going for a short spin and digging into some very tasty beer.

Askel, my watch stopped for just a bit when we hit the sand but it was only for a short section. I think I have the track right and missed only 3.2 miles of what we actually rode. The correctest total is 104.9 miles with 9,403 feet of climbing.

Awesome ride. Lots of great forest service roads, a moose, several deer, fantastic scenery, and some absolutely bitching sand. Glad you saved that for the last nine miles.

Well bud, I hope you are back home by now and are "carbo loading" in repose.

Yeah. He road back today.

Had the wind at my back the whole way. Even when I had to turn east for a bit, the wind would cooperate. That's never happened.

Must be my lucky new cow pattern sheepskin.

Now, it might seem that I try a crazy thing or two on bicycles every now and then. But I was the moderate one this time. It was Bimble's idea to do the whole ride down- with gravel, in one shot. And yeah, that got downright epic. I've never been so happy to see pavement.

Next ADV Bicycle thread event: The Gentlemen's Ride.
