    Your PT knows what a power meter is?

    you guys know you can get free replacements direct from BOA, right?

    specialized was out for a long time last year, and i finally discovered that BOA mails them to you for free. i keep 2 spares for each shoe in my race kit.

    yep. if it stops raining i will ride outside today. otherwise, i will swap my trainer for the rollers. power is not so important as firing the muscles, i think.

    it's unbelievable to me that i broke my femur less than 2 weeks ago and am actually riding outdoors, albeit really easy. kind of mind-blowing.

    I'm seeing $7 per shoe. Where are you seeing free?

    be sure to go to the warranty portion of the site. you will see prices when you add items to your cart -- and i think even a shipping estimate. when you check out the price will drop to zero. i've gotten 2 shipments from them in the past 18 months -- multiple ones for road and MTB shoes.

    I don't see a warranty section. Only a parts shop.

    Our church is on the finishing straight of Stage 1 Sunday. We're going to put up risers and the Sunday School kids are going to sell cowbells for charities we support. The pastor knows I race bikes a little and has asked me to give a little presentation on Bike Racing 101 between services. I started writing an outline and filled a couple of pages. I am planning on bringing my bike in race configuration. I figure folks will enjoy picking it up and seeing how light it is. You guys think I should bring any other props?

    I'll be at the start of Stage 4 on Wednesday. There is a ride prior to it, and the billing "big wigs will be riding along". I wonder if they'll buy lunch?

    Your kit, shoes and helmet. Definitely talk about the helmet. License. Maybe a gel or power bar.

    Good point about the helmet and shoes. And I'm pretty sure we have the same kit as BMC. (I wonder if Thor has been as annoyed about the leg grippers as we have....)

    no problem. took me a while to discover -- a long, frustrating while trying to get replacements through specialized who were perpetually out of stock.

    specialized were out of the buckles (even to supply shops) for one model for a long, long time. best to take it up on your own.

    guessing he did a pretty common boom mount (or reverse unicorn) and had it mounted on a swivel to make the viewer dizzy.

    he obviously did a bunch of editing -- but he still left in 1' of absolutely nothing happening in the intro. that's a lot for any film, much less a 3' clip!

    in positive news, i saw a 3xx on my power meter yesterday. rode inside because it is raining. driving 2.5h to volunteer at a race today. i'm always racing and rarely give back as a volunteer, so i've used the times i've been injured to do so (doing feeds with the broken clavicle, and driving a wheel car today). should be fun.

    Too bad the Amgen tour had such a crappy route to ride today.

    +1, I lived in Norcal for ~9 years. I drove that road in an old VW a few times (to focused on sailing and what not to be riding bikes at the time), but holy crap, riding it at speed looks absolutely amazing.

    On a kinda somewhat sorta related note, does anyone have recommendations for an epic ride? I turn 60 in December, and am thinking a good way to celebrate would be a tough ride. I'd want it to start within driving range of Phoenix, be in the 100-120 mile range, with maybe 6-12K feet of climbing. There are couple of local options (Mingus Mtn comes quickly to mind), but I'd prefer something new. I'll con TallWife into providing SAG support as my bday present, and that means it could even be multi-day.

    Thoughts?

    So, I was at the start of Stage 4 of the Amgen today. I was behind the line (I thought I was ahead of it, but they went the other way), so I got to see the riders arriving and signing in. As is usual, people only resemble in person what they look like on TV. For instance, Boonan is really big guy, Cav not so much (he's very slight, small in stature, and I have a girlfriend who is seriously in love with him), and Wiggins looks a lot younger than 34 or whatever he is. Sagan is cute as hell, and very personable. Then there is Jensie - he is just he nicest person! What a marvelous ambassador - and he doesn't look his age, either. Laurens Ten Dam was also very personable, and he's a lot better looking in person than he is on TV (like you guys care). The bikes - they were all shiny and spotless, the drive trains were sparkling, and they just looked so cool. I loved the little mounts they had on the seat posts for the numbers, which were apparently plastic cards or something. I called out to Sagan if I could "have (his) bike!" - and he just smiled! The numbers the riders had on their kits were cloth (I did not know that), and some of the guys had "personalized" them. The kits the riders were wearing all fit perfectly, like they had been tailored (they probably were). They really looked, ummm, good in them, too.

    All in all, it was cool and lots of fun to see the pros in person, to see the bikes, and see what a top notch pro bike race looks like.
