An easy loop to round out a big week, 38 miles and 3500' of gain this morning. Weekly totals were about 280 miles, 33K' elevation gain, and almost 20 rolling hours...I gotta go back to work, so this next week will be considerably lighter.

He's enjoyed some breakthrough successes this season, so he's riding a pretty big wave of confidence. IMO, brutal/painful days like these, keep an athlete "hungry" and wanting to improve upon weaknesses...or at least that's how it works for me, and he's got a similar mindset. If I'm honest with myself, my physiological prime is behind me and any further improvements for me will only come through better training...so it's cool to be able to train with someone that has a bunch of potential.

We're going to reach over 100F today, so headed out early for nice 25 mile gravel/road mix. Now not sure what to do with the rest of the day, perhaps start my winter build early.

Not today, Sunday, 84 from Baltimore to York and back mostly dirt and gravel on the rail trail, wife's hybrid wheels got a workout. Slick 28s would have worked, but there were some crunchy sections, but not many, lots of shade thankfully.

A pretty flat 18.8 with my first overall KOM on a half mile sprint averaging 30 MPH. Big fish, small pond type stuff. In Seattle I would be lucky to get a top 100.

42 miles in the Alps today.

1.5 times up Alpe d’Huez. My son rode 1/2 way up… took him down to mom at the bottom and went back up.

So I have been averaging 17 hrs a day at work, 3 hrs of sleep a night and worked for 19 straight days, and have had 2 rides over the last 3 weeks of minor miles. So I logged off at 3 pm today and since we have a tropical wave off the coast producing wind and rain, I decided to ride inside, and because I am stupid; blew up my legs with some climbing on Rouvy, the last 2.4 miles and 535 ft were relentless. 37.5 miles and 4400 ft.

The dog walk is not going to go well tonight.

My neighbor and his wife flew out today for 2 weeks to the Lombardy region of Italy. His wife is going over for some work thing to Milan for a week, so he is going to ride, then they are going to go up into the alps for a week and ride up there and around Lake Como. I asked him to roll by the Pirelli plant and pick me up some tires....LOL.

How does the top tube bag attach? Bolts or straps? And are you happy with it and how big is it?

The top tube bag in attached with screws. There are two sets of holes that allow a 19mm shift of the top tube bag. They are located forward of the slots for straps. The frame bag straps loop into slots under the top tube bag. Or one can loop the straps to hold on the top tube bag and frame bag. For me I can use both bags on my Domane which does not have top tube bag mounts. Tailfin designed it that way. I asked them if the frame bag can be attached with screws like the Trek/Bontrager bag does. Nope. But it works better that way as the frame bag comes off and goes on more easily if I don't need it.

I have the flip top bag. It is easier to get into than a zipper bag for me. The zipper on my previous cheap Amazon bag broke after 5 years. Buuut in cross winds the flip top can be blown closed. I got used to it.

Top Tube Bag. I have the 1.1L flip top bag. See diagram on the specific bag link.
https://www.tailfin.cc/category/smal...v=7516fd43adaa

Tailfin Frame bag fit notes. They have a tool to fit a bag from the a picture of your bike. It is close but not on. It looked like their 4.5L half frame bag would fit but from the dimensions and the cut out it was a little too long. I went with the 3.8L half bag. The 3.5L wedge frame bag may have worked for the 2L bladder and left room for a taller water bottle.

Woke up with a very sore knee, legs felt ok, knee not so much. Yesterday during the ride inside, I had this really annoying creaking, thought it was the seat post, so I popped it out and put a little grease on it, found it was the pedals. However, I noticed today, that I had my post up about 3mm too high.....so I lowered it, and thought I would take a flat ride for 35.... after 18, knee pain was just too much, so figure I better stay off the bike for a couple of days and I popped 800mg of motrin, the official do it all drug of the US Military, it will fix everything wrong with you.
