Couldn't make the meat up yesterday cause my fiancee had friends spend the night and they didn't leave until noon Sunday but I did get out and ride my first trail in the afternoon. And I was gassed after about 10 mins lol. I had a good time riding but man I was not ready. Overall the place is solid and close to my house.

I got out on the cross bike yesterday. I only did like 15 ish miles, but a couple gravel paths and one MTB trail.

New wheels are nice. They seem fine. A bit more traction and cushioning, I ran them at 30 psi and will try 25 next. No burping or anything like that, nice and stiff in the corners. The Bitex hub isn't too loud but has great engagement, much nicer than my I9 hub on the roadie which makes such a racket.

Front brake is pulsing in power but not screeching or making any noise. Brand new rotors. So I'll have to figure that out and likely clean or adjust them. Not a huge problem as they do still work.

I've been sick for a week, I'm finally getting back on the Peloton - first 30 minute class felt great but man I just about died coughing immediately after. :flaccid:

Stupid cough can't get out of my chest fast enough.

If anyone wants to play bikes on a mixed terrain road/gravel/singletrack ride, my "team" is hosting a thing in Belmont and Wiss on December 16th at 10AM. Start behind the Art Museum. Bring an ornament to decorate a tree in Belmont, lol.



Free. Likely will have whiskey shots. Bring your flask.
Reminder this is happening Sunday :zing: If anyone wants to join let me know! Open to everyone.

Sad!

I've gotta help a buddy move and then we're having a festivus party. No riding for me.

I ended up finding a BNIB Rockymounts Splitrail hitch rack on eBay for $290, so that's the route I'll be going for the :jeep:

Just need to wait for it to arrive and I'll order a hitch extender from Rockymounts with a matching core, too.

I'm going to need some tarz for next year. Hopefully a 2.4 will fit up front and I'll try out some Ardents.

Look up your fork and see if anyone's fit a 2.4 on it.

I’m sick of not being able to ride because of the weather, and I just can’t get in to a good rhythm on the spin bike without something to keep me engaged.

I'm not faulting you. I'd have Zwifted if the wife wasn't a willing Peloton participant.

Yep. 62 total workouts logged this year so far.

Granted, they're 20-30 minutes vs. my 30-45 minute classes, but she's been using it. Noticing definite improvements in strength, endurance, and overall fitness. She's seen the light, finally.
