That depends on the ratio of the rear derailleur to the shifters. IIRC, Shimano road shifters are 1.5:1 whereas their MTB are 1:1 but I don't know if this holds true for all of their drivetrains... Gummee should chime in with more knowledge.

Another good ride for me.



I've stretched my hill ride once again. First ride with over 2k in elevation.
Not much flat on this route now, but I've been hitting some of the local bike stores web sites for ride suggestions and it looks like there's plenty of roads between the valley I went up today and the river which can really increase the ups and down.

My original hilly day route-

Today's ride, same beginning and end, with an additional 12 miles put in the middle.

No need for the goofy shadow units. You can still get a 'normal' Deore m591 9s rear derailleur as well as the LX t661. They call the LX a 'touring/trekking' derailleur now (?).

They will work just fine with your STI levers.

Fwiw for others with 10s STI road shifters, you can use any cheap/expensive (you pick) 8/9s mountain derailleur with those.

The 10s shimano mountain components do indeed have a different ratio for cable pull.

I watched a documentary about that race or one that's similar. I'm not that tough.

Nice work, 'poser! That climb around mile 20 looks like a nice long effort.

You guys are making me jealous with all the riding you've been doing lately. I've spent more time on the trails with a chainsaw (clearing downed trees)and a pro hoe (building a new trail)the last couple of weeks than riding them.




This new flow trail is gonna be gnarly when its done.

Sometimes I hate technology. It all seems so half-assed. Why can't this crap be like a Campangnolo Super Record Derailleur? Simple and beautiful.

Anyway the Strava crap:


I got some stuff done. My legs are sore, but my heart rate is not really up yet. Rode for a bit with a guy wearing an altitude mask. Weird deal looked like some British Zombie fighter.

That rest day thing works the trick for sure.

Still not really losing any weight, but I am stronger. Back isn't horrible either so I count that all in the win column.

Oh, and one other amazing bit of news; my new/old/original decals for the Pinarello showed up today. These are the correct bits. I've been searching high and low for these for the last 17 years or so. Finally found some when of course I was looking for something else and wandered into the eBay wasteland for a bit one Sunday afternoon, and low and behold there they were.

Now, I have to clean up that frame and get these on there. They won't bring back thirty years of legs but damn they are going to be nice.

I have a set for a post 1984 Pinarello too, that I got thinking they were right only to discover they weren't.
If anybody is interested, I could probably be talked out of them cheap.


This is what I ride now the Pinarello is in the back.

wardrobe malfunction ?

Got in another 25 miles last night. Broke into a sweat just putting my shoes on ugh. About 3/4s into my ride I see a couple carrots up ahead. Looks like maybe a guy with his woman in his slipstream. They are cruising along a a good clip and I'm barely reeling them in. As I get closer I see it is two females front girl on hybrid back girl on drop bar road bike. They are both wearing yoga pants. As I prepare to pass the sun hits girl in the backs rearend and she has the see through pants with a black t-back on underneath.. Didn't check if front girl was see through or not, didn't want to be Aqualung.

I know the plumbing is different but that couldn't be comfortable, nice to look at butt

There's always someone faster...

So, after being in relatively good shape early in the year, May went into the toilet with bad weather, work, and some kind of upper respiratory/sinus ailment. I was able to do a few spinning classes to keep my leg strength up, but my endurance went out the window. I only managed one real ride the whole month.

The last few weeks the weather's improved and I'm feeling better, but I still have only managed to go out and pull the boy around for a few miles here and there.

I'm on vacation this week and next, and Tuesday I hooked up with my riding buddy and got out for a fairly decent ride. Incidentally, he just got turned on to Strava and is into the competitive aspect of it, and he kept babbling about segments and times...

At one point, we were cruising along on a parkway with a (crowded) paved path alongside of it. We gradually caught and passed a group of speed skating roller bladers who were running a pace line on the path. I sped up to about 20mph to put a gap on them, incase they felt uppity, and didn't think anymore about them, until a couple miles later two of them caught us and drifted ahead. Then I had to chase them down, and I passed them again, but I got caught behind a car waiting at a crosswalk and they passed me again. Having to accelerate and catch them again pretty much wiped me out, and even though I passed the leader going up a hill, I couldn't keep the pace and he went by again...oh, the shame

To make it up a bit, we chased down some hipsters who passed us on the Greenway, through Minneapolis, where there is no shortage of hipsters.

On the final three mile stretch, after we turned onto my buddies street, I was pretty much cashed out. As a final indignation, I was cruising around 16-17mph, and got dropped by a chick with panniers on her bike

It felt pretty good to get out again, altogether, but losing so much fitness at this point in the year is really irritating

Here's the ride:

mmm, think i am being bit of a numpty here I think

I have a Garmin 500, had it a while, I usually just run that device on my bars.
I have an extra sensor that I ran for a short while on my other bike, on the forks. I only ran it a few times.

Now I am putting it on my main bike and not getting a speed reading when in the shed.

I think its actually a cadence sensor but confused by what the Garmin website says, Garmin call it a Speed/Cadence bike sensor.
https://buy.garmin.com/en-AU/AU/prod1266.html

When I down load my Garmin data file, it doesnt say anything about Cadence and my screen isn't configured for cadence.

About to do that now and see what it shows in the morning.

can anyone tell me if its a speed OR a cadence sensor

thanks, appreciate

The Garmin GSC-10 is a combination speed/cadence sensor. In order to pick up cadence, you will need to attach a magnet to your left crank arm and align it so that it matches the indented line on the non-battery side of the sensor. When you press and hold the button on the sensor, it will start transmitting to nearby devices making it visible for a short time period. (like pairing a bluetooth device to your phone). It blinks red at first, then will flash green every time one of the magnets passes by its pickup sensors.

The cadence sensor should obtain data from a magnet attached to your crank arm. If it's not reading your cadence, then either your bike profile isn't configured correctly, or the magnet on the crank arm isn't positioned correctly. The speed sensor is reading data from a magnet attached to one of the spokes, which is not the same as the magnet on your crank arm.

These,
but also on the device itself hold the menu button until the menu appears,
then select settings,
then bike settings,
then select the bike that you are using,
then ANT+Spd/Cad.
Select yes for sensors present, and if the device is on your bike and still not picking up the sensor, then select search. Make sure that your either pedaling or spinning the wheel so a magnet is going by the pickup when you search, though.

Thanks for the info! I guess I could also go with a new 105 or Ultegra long cage rear derailleur as well. As I tend to do with projects such as this, I'm probably starting to overthink it.
