    Here's mine. I don't have a aero belly or a beard, though with ~290W FTP I do go pretty fast on the flats (not so fast on the climbs, way too fast on the descents). I've concluded it's faster than...

    I ride recumbents vs road 50/50. Recumbents mostly for double centuries for the comfort (and I've finished Alta Alpina's 200mi/20k ft of climbing on one), base/endurance training (5hr flat century...

    I saw "steel is real", and concur as a steel rider. I just roll my eyes.

    My number one annoyance is calling a bike (or computer, or Jeep) a "rig". WTF?

    I've used Dominators for years (on MTB for 10+ years, a different pair for road for ~5 years). They are comparably stiff to Geniuses.

    My only issue with them is the super thin insoles, but...

    Terrible Two is the next double for me. I was considering Eastern Sierra, but will ride the Sierra Double (_Metric_, boo hoo) Century with friends instead. I really need saddle time on my road bike...

    I haven't ridden Davis since 2013, but the years I have ridden it, I've wondered what the role of those corner workers were. I've never seen them stopping traffic to let a group roll through, and I...

    You can download Garmin's Basecamp software and replicate the route in it then download it to your device. Otherwise you could probably find an existing route on ridewithgps or mapmyride.

    Looks like it'll be perfect weather.

    I'm skipping this year; finally going to mix it up and try some new doubles (Eastern Sierra maybe, Terrible Two for the Stage Race jersey definitely).

    Doh. I retract what I said about the 11-34. If you already have an 11-30, the 34T won't make that big of a difference. I have 24T grannies on my road triples, they are all unramped/pinned, and they...

    XT long cage derailleur and the 11-34 cassette and you'll be set. Note that MTB rear derailleurs don't have barrel adjusters, so unless you already have some inline, you'll want to add an adjuster. ...

    I tip my Drakon down just enough to be comfortable while riding with bent arms in the drops. It stays comfortable while on the hoods/top of the bars.

    Don't worry about doing 80-90% of the century. When you can comfortably ride the metric and not be wrecked at the end, you'll be in shape to do the century.

    There are a dozen different Selle SMP models. They are all subtly different. If the saddle doesn't feel _perfect_ you either have the wrong saddle or it is positioned wrong. You can break yourself...

    Weather forecast now says 80%...
