Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's a 60cm frame, and the HT is 220mm long(same as what I had on my custom frameset).

Actually, I realized that one is both disc and Di2. Mine is the peasant mechanical version with rim brakes.

I'll just go ahead and get back to sweeping those floors, sir.

Fair enough. I am 6'2" on a 56, but I have a shorter inseam and probably should be on a 58.

I have really long legs, but a short torso + normal arms. A short TT is a must.

that’s why I had a custom frame. The Domane is the only stock frame that’s a good fit.

I guess that I have no choice but to veg and watch a movie or two. The struggle is real.
So, I guess your 550 watt for a minute goal is off the table for today?

They show those dumb things? Anyway, no, not happening today. Much like my 20 minute goal, I think that the biggest problem is going to be finding suitable terrain. Not too many hills in my area that wouldn't be completed in less than a minute at that power.
