Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
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

Pay attention. The weight of a frame is only a fraction of the whole bike weight. So if an uber light crabon fiber frame weighs 1Kg while a Ti frame weighs 1.8Kg, you can see that it's still easy to get a Ti frame to be part of a lightweight build.

Weenieism is rampant, no matter the frame material.

Even the steel is real crowd suffers.

If you had a 14 lb bike you could probably get by without a motor

BTW, it's easier and cheaper to have a weight weenie body than a weight weenie bike.

Hitting segment PRs on a cargo bike would be less satisfying than doing it on the Allez (16#).

And then you put 2.5 lbs. of water on it.

Pre-hydrate. Less water on the bike.

Sounds like a bad cycling joke: What does a weight weenie put in his/her bottles??

Not a believer in that, especially in the morning for an old codger with a dose of caffeine on board.

Still better than putting the water on a bike that weighs 10 lb more. You have to ride a 12.5 lb bike like the crabon one I just sold to understand how good it feels.

But it doesnt feel as good when you push the pedals. And really, my weenie bikes were very reasonable to put together. I really work it hard.
