My usual routine is Tuesday and Thursday Gainey so I'm up at 0345 for those, Saturday bos or west valley and the rest of the days are my solo rides.

Ha, bmc makes sense...

Yeah, I'm more of a spectator on tuesday nights. My office is right next to the course, so I head over there early and do loops, then usually run the neutral laps with the b group. When they start to pick up the pace, I hang in the back, get dropped, and practice sprinting back up to pack...repeat until I get about 20 miles in. Then just hang out and shoot the ****. There hasn't been any crashes since I've been there, some guy biffed it because his back wheel flatted around a corner, but he didn't take anyone out. The a group was starting to get testy out there last Tuesday, I saw some pushing while I was on the sideline.

So glad you noticed that one must adhere to the Trek/Bontrager cartel for all parts and components, under threat of excommunication...

I really like my ZIPP bars. The short and shallow is a lot more comfy to me, I spend more time in the drops now than I did before. I got the contour SL carbon bars, super happy with them.

I wish i could find the money for those carbon zipp bars, AND hide it so when i bought the bars and $250 disappeared, they wouldn't notice....

just got the Quadlock mounting kit last Friday and Im impressed so far. Ive only ridin with it for a 30 mi ride and its everything i was expecting. locking and unlocking is easy, the mount is sturdy and firm. Now i can see my Strava progress without having to pull it out of my jersey pocket everything. It came with Obands and zip ties and after feeling the tension from the obands, i put the zip ties as extra strength. heres some pics of the packaging and the mount.

A Magicshine MJ-880 U2 headlight. The sucker is small but it's as bright as a car's high beam. A car even highbeamed me back last night when I was out riding past dusk. :D

Is this a Lululemon edition?

The reason why I got my 11 Allez was it has the world champion colors/stripes running down the seat tube.
