    Looks like I'll be racing the crit tomorrow. Seems odd that the course is just one road going up and down, but we will see how it goes.

    My wife likely will drag me out on Saturday evening to...

    Maybe where you live. But in other parts of the south, we do see quite a bit of bad weather.

    For me, it depends on the race.

    I train pretty intensely - to the point that I'll even get on the trainer in the middle of the summer if that will provide me the best opportunity to get my workout...

    Stay home?

    I've reached a point that I don't really feel like racing in crappy weather like you've described. Maybe that doesn't make me as "hard core" as some, but I don't really care.

    That...
  5. Thanks Matt.

    Thanks Matt.

    Last week, one of you posted a link to a website that had ranks and upgrade points for all USAC riders that was not usacycling.org. What was that site?

    I have not found it bouncing back through...

    You know, I was thinking this morning, "Man, it's going to suck for Gary riding his rollers in the parking deck. I wonder if he is just going to set up in his hotel room?"

    Well, according to my Garmin files, my peak power is in excess of 9,000 watts.

    Of course, I also held 600 watts for an hour once.

    Then Quarq's great customer service replaced my unit and my...

    Yes it was.

    I hope your facilitation went well today.

    It was in the 80s this weekend here.

    It is thunder-storming all day today.

    And we are under a freeze warning for tomorrow.

    Yes, you can run any clincher tire with a tube on a tubless rim.

    No, what happened was the tire came off, but the base tape didn't. I had to resort to using a solvent to get the base tape off the rim. And once I started, I had to keep going until the glue was...

    Cleaning the glue off a carbon tubular sucks.

    Wanted to throw that out there.

    I'm in too.

    Time Out is known for its Chicken Biscuits, but that's more of a late night, post drinking kind of place. Otherwise, it's pretty standard bar food.

    If you want Carolina BBQ -...

    I think that is the circuit for the Pro RR, which is also being held on Friday, at about the same time as the amateur crits.

    Yeah, Cat 5 is designed to be a way to introduce new racers to racing. But how many of you did a straight Cat 5 race as your first race? I didn't. I did a 4/5 race, meaning I was with a bunch of guys...

    Well, that makes sense based on the map I found. Of course, the description on the flyer says "Four-corner" crit. They should fix that.

    Will you be racing?

    Any suggestions for removing base tape for a carbon rim?

    I apparently did an awesome job gluing the tire on, and when I tried to pull it off, the tire tore off from the base tape, which is still...

    Based on your posted mileage, I don't see any reason to spend money on new wheels, let alone carbon rims.

    So I did my first real crit in more than 18 months last night.

    It's a local Tuesday night crit series. The course is pretty technical - due in large part to absolutely horrific road conditions,...

    I know approximately where the course is on Saturday, but I am at a loss for Friday's course. The link provided on the race flyer just shows a straight line, not the 1.5 mile four-corner crit as...

    A lot of those unbranded wheels may just have the sticker removed or the stickers may be outlines only, so they don't show up when spinning. I have Zipp 404s and Reynolds DV46 and neither set still...

    When I bought my first house, I went cheap and bought a regular push mower. A couple years ago, I got tired of pushing the mower (also I had tweaked my back at the time and struggled to push it), and...
