    Did a TT today

    A Beautiful Day, did a 12.7 mile TT today, 37:58 = 20.1 avg. It was WINDY. Placed about 5th amongst 20+
    HRMax=175, HRavg = 171

    I'll be 60 in less than a month

    Individual TT's are definitely the race of truth!! There is no way to hide when you're out there by yourself!!! Great job on a windy day!

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    Great great job. I turned 60 last October and have been cycling more now than I have in 15+ years but I could only average 20mph downwind..

    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Thanks All -
    Cervelo P2 SL, LINN Disc on back, usually a HED tri on front but changed to my Rolf Vector 700x20's due to wind. Course was Oval, with uphill on downwind, minor hills against wind. Wind was harder than the hills.

    Damnit...you just made me drool on my keyboard! I'm in the market for a TT bike, and that's a fine one (though, if money were no object, I'd probably go for the ultra-sexy P3).

    Question about your wheels - do you run clinchers or tubulars?

    I'm a clincher Fan, Friend keeps pushing me to tubulars, but I don't favor them. Saying that, my discs and I think Tri-spoke have those wheels that are:
    TUFO TUBULAR TIRES FOR CLINCHER RIMS:
    totally new, revolutionary construction
    low rolling resistance
    no need for rim liner
    low weight
    no need to use glue
    the easiest and fastest installation from all types of tires, no tools required
    possibility of high inflation pressures
    distinctly the safest behavior in case of flats without endangering the stability of the rider
    in case of emergency can be ridden flat
    immediate use after installation
    construction and compactness is equal to tubular tires, riding properties are very close to tubular tires as well

    Do like I did and consider going the used TT bike route. You can get a lot of bike for the money.

    Excellent effort! I wish I were flexible enough to ride aerobars for 12 mi. at any speed.

    I agree, EVERYTHING I used on this TT was previously owned except for the sunglasses, gloves & HR monitor which all came from Performance on sale. Bike, pedals, aero helmet, skinsuit (I hear the yuks but it was only tried on, didn't fit seller), disc wheel, tri-spoke, tyres, etc , etc came from Ebay. I worked Hard to get deals on this set-up.
