    Yes, keep your mind open and keep in mind that the more southern sections of SoCal will sometimes have better weather than the more northern parts of SoCal depending on what time of year you ride.

    There is a section coming down from Big Bear called Damnation Alley. To the eye it looks flat but it is actually a 5.5% grade. I did 29 for about 4 miles solo. I would swear it was flat though. I...

    Ah OK! I didn't pick up on that. In that case I can totally understand your point. I'd buy a last year's model without hesitation if the price worked out to be right! :thumb:

    Yeah but when you hang around these forums long enough you see how many riders bought used then got stiffed when the frame broke. "Used" voids the warranties on the frames. Plenty of guys got...

    It's a drive from you but the OP asked about SoCal and Borrego is more SoCal than Ventura. ;)

    The traveling would be up to the OP but Palm Springs is 1:30 away and San Diego 2 hours. If the travel...

    I know what you mean. We ride GMR and I really don't care to come down. I feel like the ride is over and only come down because I have to ride down. If I had my way, I'd have somebody pick me up at...

    I use the aero tech designs shorts. The century short is nice thicker fabric and the chamois is pretty comfortable.

    The top shelf short is $10 less, chamois feels just as good or maybe better than...

    +1.....Years ago, maybe 97 we had a pretty long rainy season (seriously for us here in So Ca. :D).

    I had actually bought a trainer for Gina as she was going to use it (never happened :p). I did...

    Yeah, that sucks, I wouldn't do it if I had ore than a few trainer rides.

    I remember my highest year I did 7300 miles. Plenty of it was on GMR riding 5000-7000 miles training for a ride. Some...

    I say stops depends on what you are trying to accomplish. I've done fun organized rides where I stop at every stop and hang out with partners for 20 minutes every 20 miles. Then I have done centuries...

    You know there is an option that allows you to count trainer miles to your total mileage? ;)

    I myself would not count trainer miles but if I wanted to do so, I would probably take the trainer time...

    One option riding our local mtn road (GMR to the Village) is barely doable with 3 water bottles in the summer and it's only 20 miles. :D

    I've done Tour Of Borrego a few times. Desert scenery but a much prettier ride than Pam Springs and WAAAAAY less crowded and the roads not as thrashed. To do the longer 80 mile option I believe it...

    It's actually pretty easy to do 30 mph miles on end. :D

    Unless you post proof via Strava or similar. There is a segment on Strava that is flat and a tailwind most times. It is 7.4 miles long,...

    I think it's meant more like "your right". It's a hip phrase used by many younger people. This would be opposite "my bad". :p

    When I started cycling about 17 years ago the price of a Continental GP (their best then) was about $35. Now I can get them on line for $36 so I'm pretty happy about that. So happy I buy 4 at a time...

    Our GMR is 8 miles 2350 ft. I really don't look at the grade much on this ride, only the 10-11% section so I can make Gina happy with the news, but it's over so...
