    The idea of riding in the mountains for a day (presumably overlooking the sea at some points) and then coming home to a huge home-cooked Taiwanese dinner sounds pretty much like heaven. Lucky man.

    Reminds me of the trek y-foil from the same era. I've come across a couple out on rides and the owners rave about the ride quality.

    Agreed, no way to know. For what it's worth, that weekend this past month in Richmond was perfect... Not too warm, clear, sunny, light breezes... I truly hope next year is the same for the people...

    You must be the only person on the planet running Mektronic on a modern TT rig! Why would you go with that drivetrain? I like the bike, just seems like an eccentric choice for the parts.

    The only time I have to ride on weekdays is early. I normally set my alarm for 4:45 AM, snooze until 5:15 or so, and then roll by 6:30 at the latest (have to be at work by 8:30). That time between...

    If you're buying your son 13 pound bikes at 15, I'd hope you'll at least get him a smoking, sputtering 1980 Volvo for his first car to even things out. ;)

    If I measure just after waking up, it's around 48-50. Sitting at a desk right now it's 55. I guess that's low, but for a relatively trained cyclist I think it's normal for my age.

    The bars look rotated down a bit, but maybe it's the angle. Same with the saddle. I like the red seatpost, though... what does it weigh as it sits? Looks like it'd meed some ballast to be UCI legal...

    I haven't had to touch the bearings on mine despite 12,000+ miles, which includes a fair number of rain rides. They don't seem loose and they spin as freely as when new, so I'm not too concerned....

    If I ever got carbon rims, they'd be the low profile type like dura ace c24s. They're light, very stiff, and don't have any of the crosswind wobble of deep wheels. For me, they're perfect. That said,...
