ATACs when yer racing cross = not as bueno as JRA. Kinda 'spongy' to get out of. Harder when yer brain-hazed from trying to catch that SOB in front of you and you hafta get off and effing RUN?!

On another note:
this AM except some asshole decided I needed to do CP Jumps. CP Jumps = as hard as you can go for 10sec with 50sec off before you do 4 more of the same. Repeat after 10min Effing OUCH!

This morning started off with a wonderful birthday mountain bike ride. Turning 39= free. Beating the previous personal best time by 10 minutes= copious sweat. Crashing while trying to unclip due to a cleat screw malfunction in the parking lot when its over= priceless.

Been racing bicycles for over 30 years, dirt bikes almost that long, been on here for almost 5 years and NOW, I find this thread!

Any of you race, on or off-road?

Been off my bikes for 8 weeks recovering from a lumbar fusion. My buddies busted my balls for 53 miles today and want to do it again tomorrow. Better go eat my Wheaties!!!

I basically took my fit coordinates from my old bike and transferred them across, but there's always a bit of tweaking involved.

But it's a purdy, purdy bike (and I can take credit for the color scheme at least!). Very comfortable ride, but a lot more responsive than the Equinox. The SRAM shifters are way smoother than my old Shimanos, and the compact crank is freakin' awesome. Could not be any happier with the bike!

Thats the pedal that I am using as well. I bought mine slightly used and then had one of the the pedal clips (wire which holds cleat to pedal) break and sent them back through one of the dealers to be replaced. Time says this is a rare thing so they just replaced them. Got lucky on that one.
Yes they are kind of mushy to get out of but I dont have a problem with that.

I do believe I've found my next purchase. Now all I need is the money. This is the basic idea but components will differ. 953 stainless. Think I'll do it unpainted.

I had a full blown Time Trialer (Abici Time Machine) and I couldn't go any faster on it than my track bike plus it was uncomfortable so I ditched it and no do all my time trials on my track bike using a 49/15 or 49/16 gear. I've been in the 26-27 mph average speed range the last few years and would like to get to 28mph some day.






I have one of the 1st models of the Cannondale 6/13 and I love the ride and feel of that bike.

That's what happens when your mechanic skimps on the tire glue!!
