I haven't been posting much, but I've still been lurking. I hit some speed bumps here an there, so I haven't been riding as much as I would like to, and when I don't ride, I don't post much. For some reason they go hand in hand with me.
Whether lack of motivation, being just plain lazy, weight gain, time constraints or a physical issue which had me spend a weekend in the hospital, I'm fine turned out to be nothing, I think I have a total of about 100 miles this year. I say think because the battery in my Garmin sensor died and I just got around to changing it. Like I said just plain lazy. I'm going to give it that old college effort to start riding more. I just wanted to come by and get caught up with everyone.
Oh and I got a new bike. Let me introduce my CAAD10 105. With the weight gain I had to get stronger wheels. I don't think my Easton EA50 wheels would last long under me so I went with some DT Swiss RR585 32 3X on 105 hubs.
Now for the pics:
Love those bar plugs!
It is a very nice upgrade from my CAAD8 2300. I swapped over my pedals and bottle cages, along with my Garmin and GoPro mounts. I was going to swap my saddle, but the stock Prologo it came with is comfortable enough. At least so far it is. I still haven't dialed in the fit just right. I think I need to drop the handle bar a couple of spacers, but so far she's a blast to ride! So agile and responsive, and I'm loving the 105 drivetrain. It's so nice to have 10 gears as opposed to the 8 I'm coming from.
Well I'm here, I'm back, and I'm looking forward to hitting the road again, not literally mind you.
