Friday, after work, I rode with a co-worker who is better equipped, more fit, younger, and 70lbs lighter than I am.
I rolled out on a 10.5kg steel road bike with a leather saddle, and he rolls out with a BMC Road Machine on HED Stinger wheels.
You’re killing me, Paul.
Next ride, I’ll take my Colossal. Not any lighter, but a bit more pro. I’ve been riding this bike on the trainer, in a vain attempt at building some fitness before Land Run 100. Which, naturally, got me to thinking about changes.
Some things, like the lever position on the bars, are things I never got right during the rebuild. Others, like the Wickwerks chainrings, are because SRAM front shifts suck butt.
