Only qualm with the Metropolis is that it lacks organization. Switching shoulders with MW stuff is pretty cool though

Scrod, do you have an opinion on mess bags? What's your pref?

Dear Scrod

Does BFSSFG make you want to punch yourself in the face? If so how have you managed to be so active after all these years?

Even at my fastest at the track, I never pushed anything close to a 56:12. I'm also a pretty big sprinter.

So either you're incredibly strong (again like olympic level) or your cadence is like.. 5

Yeah, I try to make most of my purchases 'buy it for life' I'd rather not have to buy again. I'm okay with spending more the first time around to avoid buying again, haha.

Meh. Lose 2 lbs off your body. Ezpz.

My track bike is probably like 20lbs, but it's extremely stiff carbon.

Dropping the weight on your bike doesn't make it 'better'.

The Aventon will have much more sw8 fixay street cred, and as a result will probably whip skid better.

Today I posted on bike forums. Been a while. Also bought a new mess bag. Getting back in the saddle hurts my ass.

Also sold my Dolan Track Champion. Goodnight sweet prince.

Toe overlap is a non issue.

If you're uncomfortable during longer rides get a bike fit. It'll give you MUCH more improvement than buying a whole new bike.

FWIW my on the bike rpm increased when I stopped worrying about "full circles" and just concentrated on high rpm pedal smashing (all quad).

I think my best was 218~220rpm on the rollers?

When I was being coached, we had zero prescribed hill work... like ever. Power was built in the gym.
