    Onion Valley Rd in the eastern Sierra is on my list to ride the next time I go down to Death Valley.

    Google for HWGXXX0001528S for the end caps.

    Doh, didn't realize you couldn't find even that one. I stand by the 99.9% comment though for 135mm.

    DT (and others) make Centerlock...

    Wow, I'm surprised they even have that much. You should be able to buy end caps to downgrade it to 135mm. Those run ~$60.

    And likewise on front 15mm hubs, you can buy the end caps that reduce it...

    99.9% of the existing 135mm market doesn't run 11 speed, so you shouldn't be surprised you can't find it as a standard SKU. As you've discovered DT hubs can be retrofitted, and being able to put an...

    The table is only an approximation. Depending on how tight the roller is to the tire it can differ.

    I haven't ridden it since last winter, but I recall 24mph ~= 300W as measured by my Powertap. I'd been led to believe that with the right tension on the tire the published curve and my measured...

    LOL; that'd be awesome if that was the problem.

    Speed/cadence works just fine on rollers/trainer with my Edge 305, 500, 705, and 800. Not requiring GPS is the whole point of the speed/cadence...

    I stopped buying DT hubs cause every time I looked at my bike from the front, _both_ the front and rear logos were upside down. Now at least half the people should be happy.

    Is your Marriott cert good for any category hotel? A lot of the common certs max out at cat 4, and that isn't even good enough to stay at the Courtyard in Novato (a cat 5), let alone the nicer...

    Start of the thread was TL;DR, sorry.

    But it comes down to figuring out how many calories your body can comfortably process per hour, and eating that many. Don't "wait" to eat off the bike ......

    LOL. I've been trying to come up with a route that is precisely 100mi and that starts and finishes at the same location (a local pub, for pre- and post-ride beers). I want 100.0, not 99.9 or 100.1....
