I took advantage of the 80 degree weather here and took the new road bike out.
I did three laps around the 15 mile road in the everglades. It was pretty friggin windy, fortunately only 7 miles of the 15 were head on wind. The other 8 the wind was off and on to my back. The new bike felt great and I am so shocked at the speed increase with the road bike. I knew I would be faster but not to this extent. I used to do 30 miles on my MTB in 2:30, I did the 45 miles today in 2:50. Top speed of 27mph, weird this is when i tried sprinting hard i went fast but then a few minutes later got pins and needles feeling in my feet.
I was hoping to do 60 miles but the reviews on the saddle that comes with my bike are true. It is pretty narrow and unforgiving.
