    It'll be a fast commuter! FYI, I found out the hard way that a Brooks saddle (Professional in my case) doesn't like rain...mine stretched out a bit after a couple of hours in it. Then again, you're in California, so it's probably not an issue.
    Pretty slow commute, 7 miles in about 35 minutes. Using a powertap wheel on it lol, maybe next week I'll record the ride and upload it to strava.

    Yeah the rain won't be an issue for the brooks saddle here; even in Seattle when I was spending days on this saddle as a rando the rain somehow never really got to it.

    I've been having thoughts of trying out the track... but the beginner sessions are Saturday mornings - always a race on Saturday mornings.

    The only velodrome I've ridden is this one after consuming several beers at the Tour de Fat, a bike & beer festival put on by New Belgium Brewing:

    The hardest part was riding a cruiser.

    This is my view on Circulus, the small velodrome thing that was at Interbike in 2011. I forgot about this until I saw the preview of the thing above, I have helmet cam video, I need to edit it into something.

    Track rulez.

    Like many road riders, I find that my success is proportional to the distance of the event. I'm more likely to win a points race or final lap sprint in a scratch race if it is 50+ laps instead of 30.

    The following may be more apropos for the Geek thread, but anyone here have experience dealing with truncated Garmin files? Strava can read it and extract data from it, but i can't export from Strava...

    Had breakfast/lunch at a local coffee shop/café and watched the pros for the Tour of California roll by team by team previewing the TT course for Monday. Pretty cool to see them all over town the last few days.

    We just got back from a Q&A/autograph session with Cannondale at City Bike Works. My son and a bunch of his Juniors teammates were there and someone asked Sagan if he had any training advice for the Juniors. He said No, riding a bike should be fun so don't worry about training, just ride and have fun. When you get to be a teenager you can start worrying about "training."

    A couple of us team dads looked at each other and gave a thumbs up. That's exactly our philosophy too.

    Awesome experience and great attitude. A buddy of mine uses the same approach even thought there seems to be a huge push to get the Jrs on these super teams.

    I'm guessing this is NOT what a brake track is supposed to look like after just 1 weekend of racing? It was new friday. I used the new pads that came with the wheels... it had a graphite looking material covering the brake track, now I can see the carbon weaves.. is this normal??

    Great finish at the Giro, had me out of my seat. Kittel on fire. Great commentary.

    Very good finish at the TOC. Phil and Co. managed to impart the excitement of most golf announcers commenting on a guy sinking a knock in. And, once again, he got the winner wrong.

    that braking surface looks normal to me, but then again I'd probably fix whatever perceived problem there is with a mallet.
