Bike Pics!

Recommended Posts

Wow! What kind of phone are you using, out of curiosity ? Strava on the phone will cut corners, literally run a straight line through a corner. I've switched to a Garmin, it's an older model (705) and weighs almost as much as the bike itself but it is dead accurate.

Garmins are cheap if you can pick one up used. And thanks for the follow on Strava, the next 5 weeks should have some choice words to describe my rides!

iPhone 6S.  I've decided I'm moving to Garmin, just need to find a decent used one.

I noticed that the phone is giving straights across a lake or other such nonsense.

Are you prepping for a race Matt?

Not one in particular but racing season starts early in AZ. I will jump in a few MTB races this Fall to maintain fitness and will do another training block similar to my current one after Thanksgiving. Should get me ready for the early January road races. I may also head to SC and do some of the Hincapie races there. 

Main reason behind current training is that I was getting bored with some of the routes and rides so I thought I would increase intensity.

I still have my Garmin 405 around somewhere I bet it still works fine. I switched to the SUUNTO (ambit 3) this year as it was an xmas gift. Battery life alone makes it worth it

Got some funny looks from the fly fishermen below as I snapped this photo.

That seat bag looks big enough to carry a laptop..... 

 

Digging the white walls, they work really well with the wheels and grey paint.

Since it's not a race I tend to carry a few more things with me on a ride in the bag rather than sticking them in the pockets of my jersey. I'm not keen on having much if any weight on my back when riding.

After not having any of my bikes set up for rain riding last fall/winter I figured I better fix that for this year. I've had this bike set up in about 5 different variations over the last 8 or 9 years but it'd just been hanging as a frameset in the garage for the last year or so. I had pretty much everything laying around already to put it together as a fendered rain bike and put it together this weekend. Managed to juuuuust barely squeeze some 28s under the fenders. I set it up 48x18 so about 71 gear inches. Excellent ratio for around town but we'll see how my knees feel after some longer uphills...

Preferred clincher tires and tubes?

Looking to balance durability with lightness. Not racing but still want to ensure speed and endurance. Riding on pavement.
