Most hotels have a gym of some sort, usually with a spin bike or two. Not exactly road riding but might take the edge off if you're Jonesin'. Carbo loading in Idaho shouldn't be a problem.

Did my favorite ride again to oceanside yesterday with @tunavic , including mojeska canyon. LOADS of people out riding yesterday, including the entirety of the orange county aids lifecycle people on a training ride. Stumbled across @Beachgrad05 too in Santiago Canyon. It was a good day!

Was cool to run into @TrojanHorse or I should say he passed me near start of Santiago Canyon. He and @tunavic were at the Chevron at Chapman and Jamboree while my group was at CJ coffee in same area. I only stopped long enough to get windvest and arm covers off and spray sunscreen on my arms before heading for canyon. I see on flyby that Vic passed me but I didnít recognize him. Not sure what his bike, kit and helmet looked like but thought I saw s guy with his style of orange shoes go by.

Perfect. Youíll fit right in.

There is no point. Itís a rambling, ongoing conversation about whatever. Usually cycling related. But not always.

You weren't wearing your signature white sunglasses either, which probably threw Vic for a loop.

Of course, he was kind of loopy all day.

Packages from Amazon came in, got some Hutchinson Overide 38C for my CX/Gravel rig. Last minute changes b4 BWR on the 15th Can't wait to try them out tomorrow. Just got the CX rig serviced from 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. likely the easiest tires I've EVER setup tubeless, quick around the block test is promising, we'll see if they can hold tempo speed or not. Gotta get used to SRAM shifting again

****Now if my memory serves me right the Oval 327CX wheels ARE tubeless ready but don't say it, but I can't find anything to back it up until few yrs after my 2013 was made. I may have to take one tire off and measure the hooks Bike is 2013 fuji Altamira CX 1.3 if anyone has better google-fu then myself

Why are you crippling yourself with this poky-ass set up? That GAN was made for off roading!

I don't want to crash the pinarello into the newbs on the dirt who will panic when their tire sinks and they stop pedaling + fat tires is where the party is at. The CX frame has 44mm rear clearance but the dishing of the wheel or horrid and the 38's have 2mm on side and massive gap on the other


Measured the rims,
OD is 22mm
ID is 16.8mm

specs seem common with 99% of other tubeless rims so I wish my skin good luck when I try them out at lunch maybe I'll take it easy on the downhill leaving the office

I reviewed my Cycliq rear taillight video and found where @tunavic passed me. He was behind a few people that included a dude in a The Boob Ride kit.

I didn't crash so I guess that's a good sign the tires will work...
I rode dirt only today so I don't know how they will feel on the Pave but so far so good. tested 42psi F and 50 R

Did someone say orange shoes? I'm looking for some wider hi-viz yellow ones. I have black Specialized shoes from 2000 that I'm using, and a pair of white shoes that are grimly not very white. Yellow would match the new lid!

(Also, I totally don't understand this thread. Hai)

Yeah ó I had looked at Sidi. The Mega never come in hi-viz, and if theyíre anything like moto boots, thereís no damn way. Even Bontrager and Spec donít have 48 in hi-viz!

Ordered some Northwave Flash hi-viz from the U.K. Now all I need is the damn bike!
