Project at dead end..............terminated.
The last of the aerobars are off the White Rabbit. It was me, not her but the relationship had to end as this party was decidedly unhappy. I don't know if it was my lack of ballance (old age related) or the fact that I spend most of my riding time on the MTB on backwoods dirt but me........and the aerobars.........not the best of friends.
But................wait just a minute.................I just got back from a 20 mile road ride on a drop bar equipped TT frame and it was the best time that I ever had on a road bike. Don't ask why, but it fits like a glove and rides like a dream. Yes, my head is about 1" forward of where it should be when I am all the way back on the saddle.......feels great there. I could get to like this road thing. This is the bike I'm taking on vacation to Cape Cod. It's got a set of cyclocross levers on the top bar for use when riding in traffic and around pedestrians. The bar is down lower than any I have ever ridden before and it still feels good.
The next thing I'm going to tell you is that I may resign as the coordinator of Membership Motivation for Club Tombay. The clipless pedals are coming off also........
and I'm going to like it. Pardon me now............I'm going to go for a second ride and have some fun.
We are an empire. Be sure to use it wisely.
