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

If it's good enough to pick out license plates, and hopefully faces, then it's fine.

I actually did notice a huge difference rotating the pedals backwards on the stand. However, I bought them for looks not function so any friction or weight removed is an added plus.

I know, but I needed a new chain ring, and it was $5. I'm going to buy another round one. I just want to ride it tomorrow, and no one has any other rings in stock around here.

Yeah, I have one in my Trek. Everything Extralite makes is golden. I'm setting off on a 12.99lbs or less mission this winter, and it will incorporate a Extralite stem, among other things.

I discovered the problem on Wednesday. It's no biggie. I have been wanting to try an oval ring, for sometime. The cross rig is the perfect test bed, especially for $5. All my other bikes are 110bcd, and all they had was 130, so it was really the only way. I've also been wanting to try a 42t on that bike. So it accomplished both goals. I may not try it tomorrow anyway. They changed the forecast, so I may take my Cervelo out again instead. I was planning on some nasty cross riding.

Weird I just took it for a quick ride. I really can't even tell the biopace isn't round. It seems about the same pedaling that is. Plus I haven't dropped a chain yet, which is why I needed a new chainring.
