well I don't think it was the bike but me. burley limbo I have this weird health issue that causes certain foods I eat or meds or anything to cause a asthma problem. when I find a food I can't eat it can take days for my lungs to clear and no meds help.
so this was going on today pretty badly. so I was really puffing away and only averaged about 8mph. when I am feeling bad I may get 10 or 11 on my racing bike. so I guess that's not too bad.
but it sure seemed slow (G) a few small hills I had to walk up because I was panting so hard. though my breathing always gets better by the middle of the ride.
I spent a couple of hours putting good brake pads on mounting my red and white flashers on a poll that's just above my head. and getting started on my headlight. I wish I could get the light mounted lower on the bike but about the only place I can get it is on the handlebars or almost all the way up the stem.
one thing I noticed is my cadence was off. even after 15 years of not riding when I got a computer on my bike I was pretty close to 80 rpm's. well on the bent I am doing 70 and it seems like about 80. not sure if it that I am not using cleats yet or what?
