    Riding around LA before the Marathon Crash race: My buddy (in the MASH kit) got top 10 overall, he's a beast.

    Another geared bike pic, but as you can see here this was not a singlespeed ride: http://app.strava.com/activities/44712050

    This section would be perfect for the SS, but it is in between two big climbs. I'm the one in front with the GoPro on my helmet.



    I don't have any pics of me on the climbs, unfortunately. I do have this, though (caution heavy breathing!):

    Agreed.
    More than enough evidence in any performance bike clearance rack.

    I have two primal jersey's, they were $30 each. Not the best but easy on the wallet nonetheless.

    One was from the Performance clearance rack, the other was in the nashbar clearance section. haha.

    They may have helped, or my usual hard climbing rides are working their magic. This is the highest average speed I've recorded so far. It's still slower than the hammerheads in my area, but I'm not going to complain since I still have the extra weight to get rid of: http://app.strava.com/activities/48219133

    Here's the last singlespeed video I made. These aren't really steep climbs, so they're perfect for a SS (caution heavy breathing!).

    Awesome! They look great and probably, as you've said, feel a million times better.

    They were much more comfortable, although the pair I wore yesterday has a rubbery section around the bottom of the inside of the legs that is supposed to keep them from riding up your legs (my guess). Near the end of the ride that got a little irritating on my left leg so I moved it up a tiny bit so it was pressing on a different area. Other than that, they are a huge improvement.

    The other more expensive pair is even better because it doesn't have that rubbery part. My riding partner suggested chamois cream, and I'm sure that's been helping me a lot also.

    I also got a 2012 Giro Atmos helmet on clearance at biketiresdirect.com for $99.99. The normal price is $180. It is lighter and has better ventilation than my old Bell Lumen. It looks better too.

    Ah yes, that Park Drive climb. My average heart rate on that climb was 194 : http://app.strava.com/activities/48219133#844469100 My 42x16 is a little too high for that one, so I really struggle to climb it. My vintage Peugeot mixte frame conversion with the 42x17 and wider moustache bars does better. In fact I got a PR on that climb when I rode the Peugeot, even though the last time I climbed that hill I was on my geared road bike.

    The Langster is still a faster bike on most hills though, and definitely on flat ground.

    She likes to straighten and ankle while cruising; when pedaling, her ankle points slightly up rather than down, giving her the proper knee angle. Good looking out, though, Hairnet.

    Is 199 really that high? I've never thought to inquire about max heart rates.

    I measured her with a protractor on a trainer twice already; 147 degree max knee angle and KOPS. She was coasting in the pic, and has a weird habit of resting that way. She does not pedal that way - she pedals with her ankle normally angled up. Try it yourself; put your foot at 7 o clock. If your ankle is normally up while pedaling, ankling down will nearly straighten your leg.

    EDIT - I just read my response to hairnet last night and I can see how the wording can be confusing. My bad. I hope this post is more clear, though.

    I'm guessing she does what I do sometimes, lift slightly off your saddle and lock the knee/straighten the leg. Stretch the leg a bit and give your arse a break for a couple of seconds.
