    Yeah I ride Jurupa to work and back. Once in a while I'll ride Sierra. But usually it's the trail in Rubidoux by the dog park or the Santa Ana River Trail. I seen somebody in a Sky kit once in a while. I think he lives in Southridge as well.

    I hadn't realized I hadn't changed my signature. Still showing Fontana. I think I'll leave it as I may be moving back...

    That is too bad. Crash race was a blast. I did it the last two years.

    Solvang on Saturday.

    Was planning to do the crash ride as well, but now that it is cancelled, sleeping in sounds better than civil disobedience.

    Define "knocking"

    My bike started making a knocking sound when I'm out of the saddle and pedaling hard and it's annoying me. The fork & stem seem to be secure (and that's where the sound "appears" to be originating, but carbon frames are notorious for being sound amplifiers) I'm thinking a partial tear down might be in order tomorrow, but please share.

    It's coming from the bottom bracket area. The crank and pedals were tight. It does it only when I pedal. In or out of the saddle. The harder I pedal the louder it gets.

    Rode the SART today at 10mph on my fancy new frameset I bought. Got the final pieces on it this morning. I went cruising for an hour to sorting out the shifting and ride position. Tomorrow....GMR.

    How much drop are you running on the Venge? It almost looks less aggressive than your Roubaix in that photo.

    I'm still interested to hear about the ride quality. I can't handle the ride of my Roubaix SL4 without the Cobble Gobbler seat post

    I think that's just down to camera angles. I'd say the amount of drop is the same or 5mm more. My Roubaix is setup great, perfect endurance bike, and with the bars so low the heavily used aerobars are at just the right height for comfort and aerodynamics.

    The ride quality seems fine to me, a little harsher, but I've not go enough varied miles on it to really say if it's a big deal. Tomorrow will be the real test.

    Did a slower pace ride on the new bike doing GMR->Baldy Village with a few friends today, and I'm happy with the bike. Dunbar, it's not too harsh at all, rides great...not all that different than the SL3 S-Works Roubaix. The one climb I attacked I set a personal best on Strava, so the bike must be better right?

    Temps were in the 60's and 70's with a very clear view of snow capped Mt Baldy. Baldy road was closed due to a car going off the edge, so traffic on GMR/GRR was heavier than normal. A sport bike also accidentally rammed the sport bike ahead of him and broke his fork (or whatever would break on a sport bike...wheel was all cockeyed and bent in). The guy claimed cyclists came in his lane and he had to emergency stop. No good. Emergency crews got there shortly after I did, and nobody seemed majorly injured. Didn't see any cyclists anywhere hanging around the scene.

    Nice, I suspect ride quality is a very personal thing. I know when I moved from the inland empire to the west side of LA the quality of the roads went way down. I had to switch to GP4000S tires (from Gatorskins) so I wasn't getting beat to death. I was talking to a racer who went from a Cannondale Super Six to a Giant Propel and he said that he notices the stiffer ride but he doesn't mind it.
