Classic right there
Minnesota winters are LOOOOOONG. I rebuild it (4 forks and two shocks) every winter. Usually it is just a fluid change, sometimes some tweaking.
I don't know what I would do if I rode all year around. I suppose I would go until I have a problem.... If I raced I would do it sooner.
In the 'everywhere but here' file:
Swiss velodrome to open in April
Is this why you picked up the idea?
The Renaissance of the idea came about because I saw that nations like England and Australia were having international success with their road racing cyclists who, in large part, came from a background of racing on the track. The most immediate example is this year’s Tour de France winner, Bradley Wiggins, an Englishman who had focused on track racing up until the 2004 Olympic games.
Gee. Ya think?! USAC should be paying attention. More tracks = more, better racers = more medals (which drives positive media attention) = more of everything. What do we get? Nada. Zip. Zero. Nuthin.
two comments -
1. Damn - that looked painful
2. At least he moved out of the way when he went down.
I cringe when I see people take diggers like that... But I get out there and ride with the same lack of gear- on the bicycle. That's why we celebrate the end of each ride with beer, and if one of us goes down, that means... more beer!
That right there is why the USCF made salutes illegal. Do it in a pack and get relegated if I'm not mistaken. I get that the pros get to do it. They spend WAY more time on a bike than any 3 of the rest of us. Speaking of which... 4:01 just now. Here to almost Washington, VA and back. How is it you can do a loop and have a headwind 90% of the time? M
FYI: chain lube test
My training life in Colorado. Constant headwind and uphill in all directions. made a climber out of me.
This looks cool!
Do you think his headset might be just a bit Brinnelled?
There was something of a crosswind too. Don't know about the HS.
Judge rejects plea deal
I'm wondering what the "deal" is? If it's just the tickets, then, that's no deal; that's the law.
Group rides start again for the first time this year today. Since the crew put it away last year I've been hard at it all winter, but here's the catch.
I had a vasectomy last week :eek1
I'm skeered of my saddle.
Take it easy, for as long as possible. Going back at it, too quickly, seems to have long-term effects. Myself and two friends all went right back to work and all have intermittent pain. One's junk actually swelled to the size of nectarines. We were all in the construction industry, at the time. YMMV.
Very good advice.
Today is eight days post snip and I'm feeling pretty good. My brother is a urologist and a very keen cyclist, he's been keeping tabs on my progress and says it's not a bad thing to do given the circumstances. I'm going to take it pretty easy today as a test run.
Getting back on the bike without fully healing is just nuts!
Tried the trainer for a few minutes and didn't like it enough.
Going to sit a few more days out.
Ironically, my doctor told me to get back on the bike in order to GET fully healed.
