I have two Tangle bags... a medium and small if you want to try fit on your frame. I should be close to home all this weekend... might even take a day off this week.

Rode the last ride of September with Tim today. He is an expert level trials rider who happens to be a damn good cyclist and mountain biker. I wish I had half his skill level when it comes to balance in the technical stuff. The POS Garmin decided there was no signal until I was 1.5 miles into it, but I still managed to ride 706 miles for the month. Average speed was slow, but we did lots of climbing, and BSing in between.

Sunny and mid 70s my eye. Mount Mitchell creates its own weather.

Not quite the same way I rode it. I came from bottom left of the screen, did a 180 on the side hill, then a 90deg and ran up where these guys are running.

Florida's Horrible Hundred

I rolled my eyes when reading this:

http://www.horrible-hundred.com/

"Your legs are burning, you cant get enough air and your sweat is pouring on to your bike. Is it a nightmare? No, its the Horrible Hundred. You are cycling with 2000 of your friends taking on the mountains of Central Florida. You are 80 miles into the ride climbing Sugarloaf, the meanest, baddest mountain."

Surely the writer must be having a laugh.

Coming up on a road bike tire change soon. Anybody have experience with the Michelin Pro 4 Service Course in 700x25c? I'm impressed by the mileage, handling, and puncture resistance of the Hutchinson Fusions I've been running for 2 years, but having a cushier ride and a larger contact patch at a similar weight would be great.
