    No thermal underpants for 15-20 minute outings with the dog. I do wear a heavy (2lbs) Nordic sweater that Mrs. rjones28 made though.

It was like taking a 10lb. weight off your bat in the batting circle and stepping up to the plate. I kept looking down @ my speedo and seeing 20-25 mph and shaking my head because it was so much easier than riding my MTB @ 10-15 mph. And climbing was so much less effort.

    I'll be on the road bike tomorrow, but it will be like 10F with 40 mph winds. Good grief winter cycling can suck. Oh well. Beats sitting around getting fat like Gomer.
    Are you going to post a gif of a piece of cheese one last time in the Neuvation thread?

    What's the opinion around here of a cyclist with a full kit that matches their bike?

    Just crossed my mind after seeing a woman in front of Chipotle last weekend wearing a full ritte bosberg kit and instinctively started looking for her baby blue UCI banned bike and low and behold there was a pint sized one in the corner.

    Stiff, light, and sexy. Pick three.

    Granted, I would have preferred Enve go back to a stealth decal option for all their stuff.

    It wasn't called a "kit"... but the only time I did that was when I was racing BMX, and my jersey/jacket/pants/helmet decals were given to me by my local Raleigh shop along with a hefty parts discount.

    I don't understand buying a kit to advertise.

    Was she hot? Ritte has some hot women either racing or advertising for them. If that's the case, it's totally acceptable.

    There's an opinion to be had on that?

    Took it again, seemed to get some different questions, and wound up with Seattle, Buffalo, and Rochester. Closer anyway. It's kind of a tough quiz though because different occasions call for different words. That loud noise in the woods off the country road might, according to the old man across the road, be a "cougar" taking down a deer. For it to be a "mountain lion" it seems like there should be more rocks and open space.

    2F when I rolled , 4F when I returned, and a puncture. 18 miles of near zero road cycling hell. I liked it.

    It was really only cold when I was riding straight into the 20+ mph westerly wind. Even as warm as I was dressed, that didn't work so great. But with that same wind @ my back I was ok. What kind of surprised me was the -10 margin between a 10-12F ride and the ride today @ 2F was quite noticeable, I was out there for about 90 mins, but near the end I was getting colder. Kind of just did it to see what it would be like, but the takeaway for me is probably that my cold riding cutoff going forward will be 10F or so. We so rarely get days with mid-day temps colder than that (maybe like once every few years) that it's not really worth it. But if you were hell bent on riding in zero degree conditions, you could figure out a way to stay warm. Kind of like suiting up for a space walk.

    It's done. And good, though moving sucks in and of itself. The bad part of the weekend?

    Crashed the P3. Stupid low-speed thing while eating a gel when the light changed and I just braked with my left hand and pushed the left bullhorn forward. Flopped over to the left. Finished the ride (3 miles before turning around), but have been limping since then. Road rash on left knee, elbow, and shoulder, and real pretty bruise on the left hip.

    Fortunately, the bike only seems to have touched asphalt with the left bullhorn and pedal, so the carbon didn't asplode. I was lucky.

    Glad to hear that the bike's okay, but you know that you're opening yourself to a bunch of "tri-geeks can't handle" ridicule. Let's add a ground squirrel and evasive actions, at least.
