So uhhh, I don't what to make of this, but, combining wind other conditions I went not only further but much faster than I have ever gone. I took 1 day off riding and tried to take the flatter paths. I fucking kicked ass.

#1 - make sure the calipers are centered on the rotors. What brakes do you have? #2 - you can use a small adjustable wrench (make sure you clean it with rubbing alcohol first) to true the rotor side-to-side. I haven't looked at it yet but they're tektro lyra mechanicals. I don't remember the calipe...

Or we could lock shit down (again, since we're now back to square one), offer a comprehensive stimulus package (we can print money for other things, why not our people), and actually act like there's a problem instead of saying things are normal. This state of denial is making things worse. But hey...

Got out for a little bit harder ride this morning and, yeah, this thing is awesome now. It would be nice to have an even bigger top gear, but I think that 43 mph is probably already faster than I have any business going when I have no idea how to handle a bike. Related to that: the brakes still nee...

Well, my timing was off... Everyone is expecting an upward trajectory/normalization. The jobs damage is mainly already done, at least in the mind of Ford execs.

During the week my max is typically 2-2.5 hours (so 30-50 miles for me). Saturday/Sunday rides are where I put in the big long efforts (60-100 mi). :dedong: Ahh must be just that you post the big ones more often. It seems like 1-2 hrs a day is about all I can really do, and even that is a lot of wo...

2-3x a week. Depends on weather and how hard of a workday I had, really. Days where it's going to rain (like today), I'll supplant outdoor riding with an indoor Peloton workout. I've been averaging about 130 miles per week since April. Wow. I haven't been paying attention then, seems like every rid...

100-130 a week is about the volume of riding I do, so that's a good solid amount. Damn so you only ride like once a week and still keep getting better? 2-3x a week.

Depends on your riding and how much you ride. I've got about 1400 miles on my 32s on the Sacklist and they're smoothing out in the center but they're in fine shape otherwise. I'm expecting 3k miles from those tires. On the CAAD, I just flipped my rear tire to the front after about 2-3k miles as the...

Oh, another tip: Always align your sidewall labels with your valve stem.

#1 it helps you find your valve stem
#2 it looks better

Glad the process was easy though, and you’ve noticed improvements already!

That’s gonna be sweet man. Pro tip: Remove the valve core, use an air nozzle to inflate the tire and seat the bead, then put the valve core in and air it up with a pump.
