Stuck on the trainer this afternoon. Thanks to whoever mentioned using a music stand. Great idea.

Still resting. The hip is showing steady, daily improvement. Planning to be on the bike Wednesday, with a normal workout Thursday.

How do you figure?

idk i just figured in general riding in a group on a fg can get sketchy, but to be honest i've never done it.

I wouldn't do it. One of my teammates used to bring a FG to our team SS rides, and he is a great bike handler, but we still had enough scary situations that he decided not to bring it any more. Descending, pacelining, any unexpected stopping situation, things get sketchy fast if everybody has brakes except for one guy.

Even on a dead flat ride, I'd insist on a brake.

Pretty sure mike's FG has brakes. Riding brakeless is a whole different kettle of fish, and yeah, I would have a real problem with someone showing up to a group ride like that.

Anyway a braked FG in a group doesn't worry me, but on the other hand I have so little experience with that, I don't know if it would make for sketchy situations or not. My assumption was not. But it's your bike and your judgement mikey, if you considered it unwise that's cool. I just wouldn't have expected people to get bent out of shape about it. But who knows. For sure the descent down South St. would have been... interesting.

we've been riding braked fixed geared on the group rides around here for 25 years. it's a non conversation thing. brakeless is a whole nuther thing. Frankly I have some pretty strong opinions about brakeless on the road. I think they outlawed it in Portland. Too many hipster kids wrapping themselves around the hoods of cars.

Even with brakes I wouldn't do it. FG bikes have different dynamics and we all found it disruptive, including the fixed gear rider. Descents were no fun. My 2c. YMMV. etc.

I haven't ridden my FG road bike for over an hour in quite a while. Eventually I want to start doing some bigger rides on it [MENTION=130743]mike868y[/MENTION] style.

Took advantage of the holiday and unusually good weather (sunny and mid-60's) to get in another team ride. Still getting back into the swing of riding with more volume and am wrecked. Good fun.
