I do believe Grolby was just ****ing with me from conversations we had in chat previously, so I felt free to **** with him back.

It's all good. I'm secure with my bike fit. It hides my tiny penis.

54...its a good look

But really, 61(??) on the Scott and 58 on the Giant. Fork on the Scott is broken (crack in the brake bridge area...wtf??), so just on the Giant now. Glad I have other bikes as I haven't had time to deal with warranty stuff.

We're just playing with him because he complains about everyone else's fit.

def suffering. guy on my wheel is good at racing. from our own @mattm !



Also for fit haters, this is a better angle. Is there anyone who thinks I should size down a bike, still? Honest question.

I bet if Holloway (the Natl champ guy on fudgy's wheel) posted in the 33 asking for a bike fit, he'd get tons of "improvement" advice, lol.

I've seen Holloway pin his numbers to his butt like that before. Is that a thing?

Let's see if this works - from last weeks' race, taken around 6:45am during the 10 seconds when I was not suffering so I decided to pedal to the front of the peloton, put my hands on the hoods and take a few deep breaths as the group wasn't hammering. Photo by CRCA.

Just after a 6% kicker, chasing the break.

All week I worked on positioning and had my head just a few inches from my stem. When it counts, I forget to bend the elbows.

from Alex Chiu, who reads here! And it's "sort-of-paid" status.

If I am correct, this is my counter which lead to the split in the race (from which I was dead last!)

support your local photographers. I'm trying to get Alex paid, but he's too busy to get me a quote!

Existential suffering as I was feeling entirely ****ed at this point.

Katie Truong is awesome.

I don't know if I'll ever say it again, but I think my bars on the TT setup are too low. 3 races, 3 pics.
