Random thoughts from Petroleum's hometown
Joining in from Wingert's Corner's, Ohio. With 15" of snow and sub zero temps! What else is there to do? How about riding the "indoor trainer" - - I used quotes (" "), because I "love" the "indoor trainer" so damn much!
Just bought a Felt F5c. It's a lot on the heavy side, for being carbon. But for a clydesdale like me, what's a couple of pounds. Only rode it outside once so far. Nice smooth ride and handled nicely, although not super responsive. I changed out the wheelset and saddle already.
My favorite rides are Rocky River, the Canal Towpath, and the B&O - although it's a little too flat.
General road riding is great also I'm currently getting 2000 miles on a year.
Got to watch out for drunk farmers around here. They could run right over you, or ambush you, and perform a scene from Deliverance. Dudes in tights are real funny to drunk farmers
If you've read this far, I'll tell you I'm a single father of three. Hence only 2000 miles a year. If it weren't for child rearing I'd be getting more miles on. No regrets though, I love being a single dad.
I love tech talk and women that bike....er, I love women regardless.
