From the picture it looks like it does a great job.
I would have pooped seeing that.
8 miles of hiking today, instead of riding. Up to 11,250’, so some decent high altitude work — we’re off to England’s Lake District in Sept so I needed to see if I could walk / Hike any distance
And then i collected the Infinito. Has a crazy spaced stack on top of the stem right now, and the saddle is about right. Gonna have to get a proper fit and get those spacers out and get a pic onto a hosting site. It’s not like I don’t have one.
Pic won’t display. Looking forward to your impression of the new Bianchi.
Looking forward to riding it. Not sure what’s up with the pic.
I looked it up on the Bianchi website - that's a pretty bike! I really like the color scheme. They talk about the longer head tube but I wasn't tracking what all that was about. It also sounds like a total hot rod, very responsive but with a nice ride due to their special high-tech carbon fiber build-up process. I notice my not-such-a-hot-rod CF-framed Cannondale bike rides a lot smoother than my old aluminum-framed/forked Trek road bike on our rough roads . I used to ride that Trek a lot on the chip-sealed roads in Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks and after 30 or 40 miles my arms would be numb from the elbows down from the constant vibration; I think that frame & fork transmitted literally every pebble's worth of roughness up through the bars. I love what space technology has done for light weight, performance, AND comfort in bicycles! This gets ever more important as I get older, ha ha.
Speaking of space tech, the CBS This Morning news program had a nice long story about the Parker Solar Probe and I think I caught a glimpse of my kid-in-law in one of the shots of the APL where it was built! They are down in Florida now and the launch happens tomorrow AM. That thing will be travelling at 430,000 miles per hour, fastest man-made thing ever. Temps on the sun-side of the 4.5-inch thick heat shield will be 2500*F and the instruments behind it will be at an amazing 80*F. That alone is some serious technology. Since it was developed by NASA with public money all that research is available to the general public for FREE. Awesome stuff. Maybe we'll get to see some more of this high-tech stuff transferred to bicycles in the near future, WOOT!!! I'm not fast enough to need a heat shield on my bikes but some of you FFer's are so here it comes!
12:32 AM this morning. We tried to do a 200km, but ended up surrounded by a really bad storm. I started getting worried when, at about 90 to 92 degrees (and very high humidity) at 10 PM, we were getting strong gusts of really cold air - possibly gusts in the low 60's Fahrenheit or high 50's. It was weird, as the gusts were really cold, but then it would instantly go back to 90 when each gust went by. Strong lighting to our West and North - and then the heavy rain came in for a bit. I expected to see hail.

By the time we took this picture, we had all decided to end the ride early and go home to get some sleep instead of riding til 5 AM. We were about 1 hour from the end of the ride.
@Ridge: fastcat coaching is having a 25% off all their plans sale thru tomorrow
That's an awesome photo @Mambo Dave ! Nice try, better luck next time!
I'll take a look... I gandered at that Xert site, but I'm so entrenched with TrainingPeaks that I just don't want to register/pay for another site that does what looks like the same thing for about the same $$.
Fastcat does training peaks too
All of these are about to get listed in the FM.
All mediums, with the exception of the lynskey which is a m/l (55).
The house is getting cleaned.
Now you could complete the look with Assos!
When you see a sign that says trail too muddy to ride...it is best not to ignore it...especially if the local dirt is clay.....2 hours of bike cleaning and relubing later.
So....is there a replacement program that’s been established and run through the proper authorities?
I hope it involves a really badass custom, jack-of-many-trades, bike.

I think he's feeling old and is going to get an e-bike.
P.S. All of them. What can I say, I'm a sick man.
Those look like the rubber shoes that gave me blisters when I tried them on as a kid, only they were a buck.
I guess $20 is the new dollar and $7.50 is the new nickel beer price.
What Ergon saddle model is that on the Fuji? Another former WTB Pure fan would like to know.
A network outage at work and a break in the humidity lead to my usual after-work road ride to be replaced with an afternoon trail ride. Perfect temp, perfect dirt, and the trails all to myself.
I even wore special bicycle shoes for the occasion!
