~3/10 I didn't have much time to ride today, but I made the best of it in the rain we got here in socal. My legs did not like the wet/cold, I felt like I couldn't make any type or power or higher tempo today. Could be my diet, but it was pretty flat n boring today. Not many other riders out in the mess

~3/17 st patty's ride, rather cold and windy here in Socal over the weekend. Rained the night/hours before my 7am ride with fresh snow in the Mts, I stayed in the foot hills. We hoteled in the Glendale and meet up with some from a local club there, but was kinda slow and my HR never got over 120, and would dip back to 80bpm making me get cold rather quick, 25-30 miles into my planned 82 I had to drop all but the tour guide. He sucked my wheel most the way back as it was head wind. Did a 6hr ride then took family to Universal Studios for 6 hours. Closed the park down and had dinner in the mall/city walk

Hopefully my next over night stay to the area and I can ride in the Mts again. BURRRR

~3/19 Lunch ride in the canyons. Suns out and 70 some degrees for 2 days before the next storm rolls in later this week. Might race MTB this saturday so I need to ride my MTB and test out the 34t front chain ring I installed last week. See how much more effort that will be on the climbs Race course is 26miles n 3600ft of decending fun as seen here

~3/21 Cramming more hours on the bike, loving the daylight saving time change. I can get a solid hour or so after work and still have a happy wife at home. Two days of rain coming to San Diego, it will limit some of my riding. I MAY race my MTB saturday, or end up doing a medium length roadie ride.

Packages from Amazon came in, got some Hutchinson Overide 38C for my CX/Gravel rig. Can't wait to try them out tomorrow. Just got the CX rig serviced fom the shop, fresh cables, chain, and 12-28 cassette. Maybe should have gone 32...oh well.

From the first roll down the drive way on the 38s....oh so nice and they are pumped to 60psi for the stans install! Can't wait to run them lower psi since its tubeless and the right thing to do.

~4/6 quick shake down with the 38s. Like them so far, 43psi front and 50 rear as a starting point. Stayed in the dirt and these pressures felt nice, I'll see how they feel on paved

Side note, the frame has 44mm as the narrowest point in the rear, but the horrid dishing of the wheel give me 2mm gap on one side and 4-5mm on the other side. I'll have to fix the dishing before I can run 40-42c tires in the future.

~4/9 I continue to do some last minute testing of these new 38c tires, today was lunch time TT, try to hold same 20MPH ave as my roadie but the price was 159bpm ave vs 143bpm ave last week on aero bike.

There must be some sort of massive penalty in play for the 38mm wide that isn't there for the 35 wide. I did a 34 mile loop with ~1,600ft of climbing last week-- once on the R3 with 25mm Maxxis Padrones, and once on the Ritchey on 35mm Overides. The difference was 1.1mph, 19.0mph and 17.9mph respectively, at the same power, intensity, and suffer score.

I'm still trying to come to terms with those Stages numbers-- I did 45 miles with 2,600ft this morning @ 17.7mph average and my wattage was... 183. Maybe I'm super aero and I just don't know it?

@DrIsotope I only have stages on the Pinarello, the Fuji is SRAM group and no cheap PM options. Strava guessed it was 302 watt today HAHAHA it was hard but iduno about that hard. Goal was to maintain the same 20mph ave, tempo wise wasn't that bad but the fat tires really lacked any type of top end speed. Breaking 23mph was a serious chore and couldn't get on top of the cadence to spin it. Other side of the ave equation is to minimize the low speed dips. These tire claim to be 425ish grams + 2oz stans

This bike is setup with the bars at least 2" higher then my roadie which is slammed stem and aggressive fit.

What air pressures are you running? Today was 50/50, Friday was 45/50 in dirt. I may try a few more PSi in the rear tomorrow.

The 302W makes a lot more sense coming from the Strava Power Guesstimator®.

For mixed use, I generally leave the house at 70/70 with 700x35s (calculator says 57/70, but with 57 in the front it smooshes around on pavement.) The higher front pressure gets a bit squidgy when the surface gets loose, but handles most everything quite well. Even for 38s, my trusty PSI calculator gives me a starting point of 52/64 based on rider+bike weight, so I'm guessing you and the bike are a bit lighter.

last Monday on the aero roadie, same course, 20.5mph ave was 236watts strava's number using what the stages gave it. Seems about right for the normalized power I think was 240 something on the screen. I don't have the Golden Cheetah numbers on this PC.

I'll try 60psi rear tomorrow, 50 in the front seemed fine today but may try 55.

~4/11 after work shop ride, was good to get back on the pinarello and it's aeroness after a few days on the monstercross. Most my rides are solo, so it was good to get a group ride in and give me a boost going into this weekend's 134mile BWR mixed surface ride/race

~4/15 BWR time aka Belgian Waffle Ride/Race

I felt pretty good going into the ride, decent amount of climbing and miles into my legs. Just gotta ride the course and see what happens. Start time moved from 7:05 to 7:40 to allow more time for us including me to eat more WAffles and Bacon before we venture onto the 133 mile and 11k ft climbing course. We got a moto lead out from CHP for the first 11 miles, meaning 22-25mph ave until and we all get jammed up on the first dirt section, single track. Bike and bodies everywhere. carnage with those running tubes and high pressure tire setups. At least 30 flats in the first 1/2mile of dirt. Few roller then steep 19% loose decent and climb up more single track back to the road. Gaps have been formed already, I was already in no mans land from the main group. The single track did its work.

After a few miles of pave, we hop back onto the next dirt sector, about 9-11 miles, mostly rocky fire road the first half with a magic line or two then the later half is mostly sand or loose or hard pack. 1st aid was in the middle. Going up the rocky cobble climb, the line is select, 1 line with about 12inch, other lines that crosses it are putting us into the ruts or loose fist size rocks. Group of 6 of us diced up the climb, about half way up the front guy kinda blew up and we had to get on the B lines to get around him w/o lossing momentum. Platue at the top was fast, then there was cobble downhill where I found traffic as those in front of me were waiting for the smoother lines on the side of the trail. Being local and knowing more then one line, I blazed down the center passing at least 20 riders and holding speed into the creek crossing. Some were getting off the bikes, few rode through. I shouted back to the others, and said my feet didn't even get wet, another shouted that the water was going to break his drive train HAHA



Next few miles had sand pit mines on either side of the trail. I learned not to follow wheels too close yet I did it again and followed a wheel into 6" drop into sand pit, he sunk but pedaled out, I brake checked the guy behind me pretty bad to avoid the crash but I still sunk into the pit and was able to pedal out. He dropped me, and those behind me got dropped on that move. We spit out on pavement, up Highland VAlley rode, less then 1 mile steep 14% face with few switches then turns into steep rolling hills. Brutal climbs together, I found my rear tire let out some air, and was sitting flatter then I started. Luckly the rolling VELOFIX van was in view, my tire started at 50psi, was down to 40. I asked for 60 and hopes the tubeless sealant would do it's job for the day. Front was awesome and plush at 45psi.

Make it to the next AID at mile 44, start of Black Canyon 13mile 7% grade DIRT climb to about 3600ft elevation. One lil downhill section in there to keep you on your toes. Got up to 92* in the canyon that day, not bad but not terrible 110* like last yr here. I ended up PR'ing the climb by a few minutes, 45mins n change. Near the top there were some riders hiding in the shade, I told them the AID is only 1/2mile away and they have cokes!



We hope back on Pavement through some rolling hills, get on the Highway and head back towards the coast, headwind for 50 miles roughly!! The highway section was only 13 of rolling hills but massive headwind. I was chasing a group of 7, finally caught them about 2/3s the way to the next turn but they were spent and no one wanted to go up front into the winds, their speed dropped from 19ish to 15 so I went around them and rode the same pace. Still burned too many matches on this part but that is part of the course.

We loop around to the lake and get back onto the Black CAnyon dirt road, dropping in where the lil decent finished. So that means gotta climb back up!





Get back to the AID station, down another coke, gels and bananas. Get back on the road, the next downhill was ave 7% down but had to pedal just to hold 25-30mph on the long decent. About 15 mins.

At the bottom we're welcomed with more dirt, but called Sandy Bandy, single track and sand pits everywhere. Line selection is key along w/ leg RPM and just power thru the mess. Riders were everywhere on the trails, but I was able to clean all the trails and spit back on Bandy Canyon pavement climb. Nasty 12-15% grade while in wind in my face. My legs were on the verge of cramps here, hard to spin and scared to get off the saddle. Between Sandy Bandy and that climb out, I burned all my matches. We get back onto the dirt flat seciton to AID station at mile 101. I was in my 34t and light gearing in the back. I could only spin the bike, no power at all.

Aid station mile 101 I had a buddy bring me a starbuck double shot drink, I needed caffeine BAD in hopes to jump start my legs. Spent a bit more time at this station getting more fluids and food on board. Push onto the next dirt section, another 6miles of cobbles and that creek crossing again. The climbs were just spinning, I lacked the power to push hard w/o cramping. I was trying to minimize the damage. The 6 mile dirt section turned into another 5 miles of single track w/ 18% grade hill in there. I should have just walked it but damn, I was scared to clip out and cramp.

I got back on the pavement at mile 111, which was more climbing, about another 600ft before it would level off. My legs were DONE. I was stuck in my granny gear going backwards fast. At 118 there was split to continue the route another 15miles and 2000ft more double digit climbs or easy pedal few miles back to the finish line and get a beer. I picked the later. First time in 4 yrs I didn't finished the course. I had 20 new PRs on the course/road/dirt. I keep saying it every year, Its the hardest ride I've ever done. Doesn't get easier, we just get faster!!

~4/25 Seemed like a perfectly good idea to ride bikes in the middle of the desert...that was before the mini heat wave came in. CHanged plans a bit to head out during the night and camp then ride, vs drive two hours out there early AM and ride.We set off at 10:30pm Tuesday night to the desert. Pulled into Hawk Canyon about 12;30am. After eating some 711 pizza and pint of stone ruination double ipa we finally fell asleep at 2:30am. No alarms were set, we knew the desert would wake us up and it did just after 8am when the sun hit our faces while sleeping under the stars on cots.

My buddy wanted to test his 750w E bike on the sandy trails of Anza Borrego State park. With my weekend booked with family stuff/training/races, we did it mid week thinking we'd be the other stupid guys out there....NOPE others liked the heat as well. We know this trails from 4x4ing and camping but never thought I'd be on my MTB out there. Kept things mellow as the computer averaged 104* w/ peak 111* in the deeper slots exposed to the sun. 3 times I put on sun block and still got burnt in the shoulders cuz I wanted to wear a tank top. After riding the hills around the top of the slots, I dropped in the wicked sandy 25% decent (he went back for the tacoma), we messed around on the slots for til we had to walk. Leaving the canyon I stayed on my bike and had him follow me in the truck until we hit San Felipe Wash. It was much warmer further down into the wash. I opted to hop back in the truck and we headed to Borrego Springs taco shop for some much needed real food. Ran into two guys there resting in the shade. Full on bikepacker rigs, they are doing the Stagecoach 400 ride from Idyllwild to the beach and downtown San Diego, Thru chula vista and back up the Laguna Mts and drop into the backside desert. They were one day away from home but would be a brutal ride out of the desert floor Stagecoach 400 Bikepacking Route - BIKEPACKING.com

tried my hands at the 12hr of Temecula MTB race. Appartly I was the only to sign up for Solo Sport class so they lumped me into the Solo OPEN class aka pros. Fun day til I blew up. Didn't help to be at 95% HR for the first 2 hours, pitted and took a 20min nap to try to get my HR to settle and it did, until I got to the first single track and shot back up to 170 something, max is 185. I made it 5 hours into my race before I was cramping both calves. I was so far behind the ball on calories it was bad day.

purchased a spesh langster in Olympic rio colors new from LBS brakeless and on clearance of $307OTD for a $950 bike and converted it to singlespeed with a white industries freewheel for more road friendly using other then a track. I have allot of hills in my area. Added 44cm wide zipp bars for more leverage on climbs and sram brake levers. had some old dura ace brakes laying around so mounted them.





Dialed in the fit with a 105 mile ride and 5500ft of climbing last weekend
