    So the triathletes came out...

    To our local fastest group ride. Not officially a race or anything. Easy out, hard back. One guy came out with a Cervelo P5 with a full disc on the back, and Zipp 808 on the front. Mind you this is in Kansas and yesterday it was 27mph winds. He had a hell of a time controlling his bike in the group and finally when we hit the turn around with the wind at our backs he was dropped.

    But seriously, a full disc on a P5 at a group ride. Seems dangerous.

    Take the trash out. For the most part they don't do well with accelerations, particularly not with a disc wheel.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    My wheelbuilder wheel cover is in the mail right now. My front 50mm flatted after my race last night. I have 1 week before state TT.
    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.

    Does this thread make the 41 less 41y?

    Another is using it for number 2. On the bright side, you will no longer be needing the Uranus lube that a certain someone formulated.

    We had a trackie come out last night on a Bianchi Super Pista. He did all right for himself.

    Why move this to the 41 and not the tri forum, or Trollheim? Like the 41 needs any help.

    Thread has nothing to do with bike racing, but was in the 33. Don't try applying logic to the other non-racing threads over there though -- that logic doesn't apply.

    I've seen a few out on some solo rides and they do ok on the rolling hills but once there's a sustained grade they fade away.

    This ride is pancake flat. The selection gets made by the wind, which was pretty heavy last night, but if you know how to hide, you'll be okay.
