Thanks for the suggestion.
Black B17. Been laced. Around 1500 miles on it so just starting to break in. Would include wrench and tin of Proofide. How does $60 shipped sound?

While I'm blessed with an ass that can ride pretty much anything (saddle-wise) there are some that work better.

For example: the Antares that I was riding today is good up to about 90min and then starts to get a little wonky.

The Romin is good for many hours.

The saddle that still fits best is a Flite. May have to replace the black and green Antares on the Crosshairs with my R/W/G Flite for the spring/summer as I'm riding the Crosshairs as a road bike.

Here is a link to the last workout http://connect.garmin.com/activity/139199518. No mapping since it was indoors. I haven't lost much weight yet, but I am getting thinner. I guess I should take a before picture for later comparison.
Good to hear. I bought the book a while back and have read through about half of it...and that's about it.

I've been riding fairly regularly, but not with any real structure. Just getting in miles and having fun. Prolly time to stop horsing around and spend some quality time in the pain cave. Meanwhile, I'm planning to get in a 55 mi. loop Sat. morning.

Judging how I feel after a workout, and then how I feel after the rest day I think the ratios on the work are pretty spot on. There is also room to expand to more work if needed. I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

Here is a link for Amazon for the book.

http://www.amazon.com/Time-Crunched-.../dp/193403083X

Well worth $14. Probably best for those with power meters, but a heart rate montior works also.

I just got done installing an AirZound rechargeable bicycle airhorn on my Sirrus. Holy frijoles, be careful; they mail it to you already charged up. 115 db is loud in a 900 sq foot apartment. I'm sure my neighbors hate me right now.

I haven't field tested it yet, but I'm looking forward to the opportunity.

Ended up at 3:30 yesterday. Got talked in to explorating with Thor and ended up at his place in Bealeton. That was at 1:52 into a ride that was *supposed* to be 2hrs.

...and I was an hour and a half away from home!

Good thing there was a tailwind the whole way back!

I've decided I don't like the bar/shifter interface on m Allez. Old school Pro 260s and 10sp STI don't really go well together. Gotta work on that. Problem is I have this nifty Syncros quill stem on it that's 26.0... Gotta find new bars that have the flatter profile on the top that're 26.0. Oh, and something nice. Even tho this is my 'rain bike' I like to have at least semi-decent stuff on it.

Gonna go toodle around for an hour sometime soon, then clean/lube bikes, then go play UW Hockey.

How's your day going?

Good lord, no wonder I couldn't find this thread... I never even noticed we had a "Sports" sub forum.
