    8-20 11.9 mles
    26:49 running, at least that is what I am calling it. Actually felt like running rather than a slow jog. Longest effort and fastest pace so far and only the 4th ride.

    Check the Roubiax for brake rub, wheel wobble, low air pressure, tight bearings. The Allez is stiffer so it may feel more responsive. Could also be how you fit on each bike.
