Another nice shot. Is this also from the gopro?

No, this was from a real camera. Canon 7D, I believe.

Pacifica Bluffs:

Mt Tam:

It was kinda ridiculous how many people couldn't believe I rode a fixed gear on this Mt Tam loop. Almost as ridiculous as how long my legs were sore afterwards.

Johnny, did you put together your bike or did an LBS?

I found out (after a flat this morning) that I had tubes in my tubeless wheels (same rims/tires as yours). Just wondering if that's the norm or if my LBS was being dumb. Gonna go pick up a tubeless kit tomorrow and test things out.

johnnytheboy 08-24-13 06:09 AM

I did.

Yeah, I'm assuming the LBS just threw tubes in thinking most people have no idea what tubeless is and if they flatted, would freak out about not having a tube in the tire. Who knows.

I'm picking up some slime and valves today, will be tubeless this afternoon.

The durano s tires aren't toobless.
I'm not risking my teeth with that.

johnnytheboy 08-24-13 12:02 PM

but if you're going to do it, i'd suggest a latex based sealant (like stan's) vs. a fiber sealant (like slime).

Ahh, mine came with ultremo zx's. I picked up the stans sealant as well. However, I popped the bead at 120psi, so I gave up.

They make ultremo's as clinchers and tubeless, c'dale website says tubeless in the specs...wonder if they're the clinchers and not the tubeless tires? I need to go investigate. However, I think I'm going to give up and sell the wheelset. I have another set of carbon clinchers on the way.

I'm really bad at taking podium photos.

Kayce 08-24-13 07:34 PM

GMJ missed the best podium photo, but can humble brag like no other.

This is also the podium that I can take the tiniest amount of credit for.

That would be so awesome, if it weren't for the purple crocs.

cali_axela 08-29-13 09:31 PM

Indeed it does. It's not crazy bright, but it's quite nice at night, and was pretty cheap -- from
