Rode again today, just a short 16 miler. Only 4 rides since getting back in to this and I am thinking about road bikes! (yikes!). On a good flat stretch I am starting to be able to run the old Rockhopper in top gear (about 21-22). Am I correct in surmising that a road bike will run a little faster than my MTB with slicks? I do have bar ends, but find my self looking for places to put my hands.
Got the courage up to throw on the PI bibs and new jersey. Nobody looks at you or cares, and even if they did I guess I am getting to the point I dont care. The bibs and jersey did what they are supposed to do and kept everything as dry/cool as possible. Beats a bunch of wet cotton!
I see posts talking about cadence. I am having a hard time figuring out how anyone can concentrate enought to both count and watch a timer. Or is a function of a computer?
Thanks! This forum is great encouragement!
