    Fat man in a little kit. How to get more aero.

    Took a pre-ride picture of my soon to be retired red kit, my choice for the first year riding road so far.

    Canari jersey, pearl liners, and Nike baseball sliding shorts.

    I thought I would demonstrate how I can lose 20lbs for those climbs.

    20lbs less.

    Before.

    Yes, I am very wise.

    Looks like the same picture twice.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Dude, I hope you're not starting a "I'm fatter than you are" thread.

    This could get ugly quick if you are.

    The second pic he's relaxed his "paunch" but he doesn't even know what a real aero-belly looks like I don't think.

    No. You are not.
    A bit of a round belly is more aero than a flat belly.
    On top of that your bibs aren't fitting well enough to be truly aero.

    You're supposed to tuck it down, not up.

    You will be the center of the 41.

    Yes, and the main motivation for getting a different kit.

    Besides, how do you know that is me? Maybe even THIS picture is me! Maybe they're all of me!
