Title: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: jmilliron on June 25, 2011, 10:43:52 PM
This is the place to post photos from your rides. I'll start, but I don't intend it to be just my own photos.

Here are some test shots from commuting to work on Friday with my new Nikon P300 (http://www.dpreview.com/products/nikon/compacts/nikon_cpp300).

Rode through the park the other day.  Last year a tornado came through and did some serious damage to a few sections.

I spent a week in Laguna Niguel (Orange County, CA) with family last week and took a few early morning rides. For the entire week it was overcast, cool and misty until noon, which made for excellent riding. Here's a few pics.

O.C. roads rule. They just do.

Saddle angles cause me pain to look at, sometimes.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: rat fink on July 10, 2011, 08:16:30 PM
Yeah, it wasn't right that day at all. ...I was headed out to that climb when I thought, "maybe I should move my saddle back a bit". STUPID! STUPID! STUPID! Once I repositioned it, I couldn't remember what angle I had it at, and well... it was a rough ride. I have a nasty habit of making fit changes immediately preceding hard rides. In this case, the immediate climb was 1500ft in 3mi. The camera exaggerates the saddle angle quite a bit, though. Here's what it normally looks like:

I went with 0 setback post (from 15mm) and a 2cm longer stem 9 days prior to a 170m ride. I was a little sore.

Couple pics from last weekend's getaway back to where I grew up in West-Central WI. Spent some nice time with the family and got a few miles in. Colors were good but the wind was hellacious so it stripped a lot of the trees down. Fridays winds were gusting to 40mph and Saturdays to 30mph. With the hills you could still get decent rides in though, just had to be careful about the route or it could be a lot of pain.

There's a lot of big ridges around where my parents live that are clear up top with some fields. This had a wicked twisting descent back down to the valley.

Seeing as I am about the only long standing member who hasn't done one of these I decided to make good use of a casual ride today.  This is possibly the most photorific post in the whole thread so be warned.


The area of Wisconsin I live in is plum full of easily accessible public land.

I made a stop at this little cafe for coffee and the latest treat to fall out of their kitchen.  This cupcake was the first time in my life I have attempted to digest glitter.

OK, I always wish I had a camera when I go past the impeccably named Mitten Farm, so the rest of the ride was even more rural if you can believe that.  Most everything from here on out is pretty self explanatory except the "ski area".  For some reason these are literally peppered around the local region and none are much bigger than they look.  I was on the back side and it is at best twice as big as it is shown.  Hope you have enjoyed your visual journey.

Here's some of my favorite pics from past rides. Videos of all these rides are on my YouTube channel in my profile.

38% grade in San Francisco. This is Broderick Street and I could only make it halfway up this climb, despite having a 16" low gear.

Bottom of the 31.5% Filbert Street in San Francisco (my avatar). I made it up this in second gear (18.7" gear).

nice pics. i lived in SF for a bit but was not a cyclist then. seeing your pic makes me want to try it, to see what happens. i think i'd make sure i pushed through as i sure as hell would not want to have to walk up (or down) in road shoes with cleats. extra incentive!

thanks for sharing.

Yeah, having to walk back down Broderick in cycling shoes and cleats wouldn't have been too safe. That street was so steep I couldn't even get back on my bike to ride back down, so I had to walk down after each failed attempt.

Luckily, the bike I rode had toe clips instead. This is my "travel road bike". I used this bike on that ride because I went to San Francisco in a rental car with a friend and his dog, so there was no room to put my full-size road bike in the car.

These aren't my pictures, but were taken from another guy in the group yesterday. It was about 25F when we started, but we warmed up fairly quickly with the stupid amount of climbing. Awesome day for a ride and the fog/cloud cover roaming through the 'mountains' early + ice on trees/grass on was beautiful.

Treated to a sticky snowfall during the evening yesterday.  Roads looked like they'd be ok this morning and mostly were, except the wind was pretty strong and caused drifting across some roads (made for some scary fun times). Snow was still holding onto everything despite the wind, so I lugged the old Canon XT with in the Topeak rack bag.

i recently went to the big island and climbed Mauna Kea (http://app.strava.com/rides/7224917) here are some pictures:

starting at the beach. sea level. it's early and not too cloudy, looking up you can actually see the observatory nearly 14k ft above.

not really a descent, but the leg from Waimea to Saddle rd is mostly downhill. fast and cross wind-y.

turning onto Saddle rd, back to climbing, back to headwind.

(http://bogdanmarian.com/images/bigisland/1080/_DSC0171.JPG)

Mauna Kea access rd. steep. the next 14 miles avg around 10% - it gets over 20% several times, but most of the steep stuff is in the 12-15% range.

miles of dirt too. also steep. and loose.

(http://bogdanmarian.com/images/bigisland/1080/_D2X8117.JPG)

view from the visitor's center around 9,199 ft.

Holy Crap!  I drove that exact route, and the rental companies won't let you take saddle road without a 4WD.  I cannot fathom riding that.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: bam on May 02, 2012, 12:08:24 AM
yeah, i rented the bike from kona bike works. it was cheaper and less hassle than flying with a bike. and they had a decent selection to choose from.

my girlfriend drove the route stopping every few miles to take pictures and hand off water or food. if i needed one or the other i would stop for a couple minutes, otherwise just roll through and meet up again further down the road. 4wd isn't needed for saddle road, i think rental companies have traditionally been concerned about accidents up there. even the dirt road doesn't require 4wd, but it would not hurt. i got one flat and it was literally within the first mile of the ride.

didn't notice any issues with the elevation recorded by the garmin. was climbing slow enough that the barometer had plenty of time to adjust ;) the amount of climbing seemed accurate, but strava rounded up a bit. it's about 14.6k from coast to summit following that route.

if i do this again, or Mauna Loa, i'm going to start from Hilo. that wind is  :banghead:

How was your experience with a rental? I may have to travel west this summer, and I'm considering a rental .vs. flying my race bike. I figure I'd bring my pedals and a spare saddle. How did the rental place deal with fit? Did they do a decent job of it? How much tweaking did you have to do? To me it's going to come down to the tradeoff between the cost of flying my bike, which fits, and the hassle of trying to make a strange bike worth riding.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: Ti Guy on May 02, 2012, 08:23:43 AM
 I asked Bam if he had rented there because I had, they did a great job.  If you do it, bring your saddle and pedals.  I gave them the measurements ahead of time from the fit that I did on my bike and we only did a slight amount of tweaking when I picked up the bike.  The cost was about the same as flying with the bike without the cost of a good case.  I did not have a good travel case so it was an easy decision for me.  I really think that it boils down to your comfort level of the prospective shop.  The shop in Kona stocks a lot of high end bikes that are well maintained due to the Ironman Race.

I think rentals will vary widely by shop. When I rented a bike in Phoenix it was "here you go, see ya later". No real fitting or anything. I did get them to at least put the saddle to the right height.

bike works in kona was good. they spent a little time to fit the bike, and you can even specify some of your measurements while reserving a bike online. if you needed a proper fit they would work with you for an additional fee.

i also rented a bike in kauai (Kauai cycle) and they were more of "here's your bike, have fun" kind of place.

if anyone is coming to wyoming, please do hit me up. i'd be happy to show you guys around. if i'm unable to play tour guide, i can at least give some good route info. unfortunately, there aren't many roads so for someone who lives here there is not a huge database of routes, but what we have is pretty good quality.

3 favorite 75- to 100- mile routes have one stop sign, one blinking light+one traffic light, and two stop signs, respectively (with ~5,000, 7,500, and ~3,000 of climbing).

Climbing Mt Wachusett

that looks pretty fun. great pavement?

what's the profile of the climb (max/min elevation, avg/max grade, length)?
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: shovelhd on August 27, 2012, 09:10:37 PM
Wachusett is a little over an hour away. The pavement is typically good. If I remember right the grade goes from around 6% to 10% or more. It's not that long a climb. If Fitchburg had gone off this year, one of the stages was going to be a mass start hillclimb up Wachusett.

BTW my favorite local brew is made in the shadow of Mt. Wachusett (Wachusett Country Ale).

Wachusett is hard. I got eliminated from the one and only Fitchburg I did at the top of the climb (and my last stage race and I think last road race). The people at the finish forced me to sit in the first aid tent for a while.


That year Roy Knickman won the stage there:
http://autobus.cyclingnews.com/results/1998/jul98/jul7.html


What's funny is a local guy (Badger), who had just upgraded to Cat 2, was doing that P12 race. He got shelled early on. Up ahead Knickman was solo - we'd only heard that at one point he had an 8 minute lead and now it was dropping down to 4 minutes and he was about to turn onto Wachusett.


With just over one big lap to go (everyone does these 11 mi laps until the last lap where you turn left to go up the mountain), the pace car, behind Badger, rolled up to Badger.

"Hey!"
"What."
"You have a choice. You can time trial up to the base of the mountain and then do another lap on your own. Or you can sit up, let him (Knickman) catch you, lap you, and go up the mountain with him. We'll prorate your time so you won't be eliminated."

Badger sat up.


Knickman caught him. Badger was so toasted he could barely pull the half mile to the left turn but he felt that he should, at the very least, give Knickman some shelter. The spectators there, knowing Knickman had been on his own, thought Badger had bridged the 3-4 minute gap solo. They went bananas, screaming at the two riders, who at that point had a lead of over 3 minutes over the field.


Badger, absolutely and totally spent, pulled onto the base of the climb and pulled off. He turned to Knickman.


"It's all you man!" he yelled at Knickman.

"I'm f*cked, I'm f*cked" Knickman responded.


Knickman won by 6 seconds (I heard 18) according to cyclingnews. Frank McCormack, who got second, did the whole climb in a 55x21. Knickman was struggling in a 39x21. If you think about it that means that if the climb was another 10 meters or so Knickman probably would have lost. The steepest bit, a very short pitch, is at the very top. It forced me to zig zag in a 42x26 (but then again I can't climb and lost 40-odd minutes over a 60 mile race). I can't imagine what was going through Knickman's mind, knowing that some very good riders were blazing up the climb just behind him.

Like all climbs, how hard it is depends on how hard you ride it. I don't find Wachusett that difficult just riding up it.

If you can get out here teton, you should. Our hilly stuff is not even in the same league as what you deal with every day, but we have some great one-day road and stage races that are steeped with history and draw big fields from all over the country. Grumpy can tell you all you need to know about them, he has done all of them at least once.

The Masters fields here are split into three groups; guys that only do crits, guys that only do road and stage races, and guys that do a mix of both. There is enough racing to support this from March until October.

The pavement is absolutely amazing, was just recently repaved.  Smooth and fast and if you get in before the auto road opens the descent is crazy fast!!!

In the grand scheme of things, Wachuesett is one of the easier climbs (depending on how you ride it)  I used Waschusett for training for another hill climb I did up Mount Equinox.

The link below is for the Bumps series, and Wachusett is the first (easiest) one, and they progressively get harder.

so, if you you win the national championship, you're not even going to stay for the medal? that would be a shame.

yep--exactly why i'd love to race out there. lots of history, and i'm betting that although there may not be 5-mile 10% ramps, there are lots of painful rollers through cool, tree-lined roads.

If so, I got a couple non insulated ones and not only are they annoying to drink from, but they are hard to hold in my teeth when switching bottles, and they are really hat to get in/out of the cages because they are girthier than the specialized bottles.

I don't have any of those problems. On the other hand, they keep ice for hours. Win.

I don't ever close the nozzle valve except to store them. If you are trying to open and close it every time you use it, you are doing it wrong.

I guess I should have said highly inconvenient in comparison to the Specialized nipples. You have to squeeze the bottle too hard and the flow is too little.

Post by: ericm979 on September 08, 2012, 10:08:13 PM
He's right, they don't flow as well as the Specialized nipples and the bottles are stiffer.  It's not a big deal but as soon as I got the new Spec bottles I relegated the Camelback bottles to reserve duty.

The incredibly annoying wet gasp/suck they make when you tilt it up after a large drink is not something that goes down in the positives category.  If I could pick one bottle to have handed up 3 hours into a race in heat it would be one of them hands down though.  Nothing I've seen overruled having ice an hour plus out in a bottle that doesn't leak.

This.
 
I have one Polar insulated and 2 Camelback insulated bottles.  I now LOVE the valves on the Camelback, since if you only open it 1/2 way, it sprays instead of streams.  A great feature when you want to cool off on a 100deg day.

Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: umd on September 17, 2012, 10:02:46 AM
Not a compact. It's a 53/39 with an 11-32. Gives me a 53x11 on the high end and effectively the same as a 34x28 on the low end. I started using it for Everest Challenge a few years ago but it's also nice to have when I want to go easier up big climbs so I just leave it on for training rather than swapping it out all the time. I do put tighter (11-23 or 11-26) cassettes on as appropriate for races.

Also I used to run an XX MTB RD on my Tarmac, but this is a Rival mid-cage road RD.

It was an overnight ride with a club I used to be in. They rode ~80 miles from Santa Ynez to San Luis Obispo, stayed the night, and then back the next day. I rode 25 miles out from Santa Barbara to meet them, did the ride with them and then road home. Kuf met us there and then also took some pictures of us riding back.

The climate was suitably dynamic and climatic to bring a camera along with me this afternoon.  No excuses, I wasn't doing a very good job behind the lens.  Perhaps WhyFi will find time to grace us with some shots in his elegant style and of the much cleaner part of the Mississippi he lives closer to.  I promise there is a stark difference to the gritty industrial environs downstream where I rode today.

just a routine ride today...the mtb needed some lovin'. the first part of the ride is an IQ test, and i always fail. i like to ride a 1.9-mile set of switchbacks up a steep face (average grade is 15%), and i choose this instead of going a less steep route. provides a good view of the teton range; the town of jackson is ~1600 vert below. i always like the perspective here.

anyway, fall came early here and the leaves not only changed colors but are falling off the trees. trails could use a good inch of rain; snow is in the forecast for later this week.

ps in that 2nd shot, that saddle on the horizon is teton pass, my go-to road ride. c'mon out for a visit/ride!

I would confidently say the gun to citizen ratio in Arizona isn't much different than it is in Wyoming. I also would be willing to bet we have a lower average intelligence and a higher population of on edge rednecks, resulting in a higher liklihood of being shot. Though, in Paradise Valley, all the millionaires are afraid of their own shadows.

it's funny how 50F feels tropical after a spell of highs in the 20s! Snow on the valley floor melted and roads/paths dried out. Here's a view of the Sleeping Indian while cooling down from today's workout.

That's why I don't ride in the cold mornings!

First cyclocross race!  He was very excited, and fully pinned the whole time.  But he wiped out on the last lap and got embarrassed.  I told him it's not a cross race unless you roll around in the mud a little bit.  On the drive home his tears dried and his race stories increased in grandeur.  By the time we got back, in the retelling he was fighting for first and took the last turn too aggressively...

That looks fun.  But either there's someone else with a fat tire MTB also riding those trails or you're doing laps.

How does it handle deep snow?
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: sickmtbnutcase on December 26, 2012, 11:06:16 AM
Plenty of other folks riding the trails too. Lots of hikers as well.


Handles deep fluffy snow fine. If there's a really good crust on top of deeper snow; might as well walk as the front tire tries to ride up on that crust, but has to cut through - results in getting stopped quickly. Obviously speed slows in proportion to snow depth, but if one keeps on spinning a nice cadence, you keep moving just fine.

Broke some old trail open again for the winter. Some areas that are low filled in with rain previously and have a nice inch of ice that breaks up as you ride across it. One such section is in a corner. Really can get interesting going through that with any speed. It's like random ice skating as the pieces move. Fun :)

The Cannondale looks pretty good slammed, ygduf.  How much saddle to bar drop do you have?  It looks substantial from the one pic. 


Just noticed you guys are sponsored by Patagonia and did a bit of a double take.  They really stepped back sponsoring stuff for a number of years.  Too bad it doesn't get cold enough out there to appreciate how good of alpine base layers they make.  Years ahead of the cycling ones.


Don't mind the jealous and bitter masses.  You took very nice photographs, jmilliron.  FF looks like he is laughing at the guy geeking out but other than that I have nothing negative to say.

:bday:  to the little two wheeled terror in training.

Thanks! The little terror has been out on his balance bike in the snow quite a bit. Mostly learning to fall gracefully but he's learning valuable countersteering skills as well.

Yesterday's weather was not the best for riding. Started out with no precip, but then the snow came down hard. About 1.5" in 20 minutes. Then sneet, then sleet, then ice (after I was home, thankfully). The snow was very wet and keeping traction became quite challenging at times. Good stuff.

Pics with a cell phone just can't capture heavy snowfall. It was impressive. Sadly, the squeal of my BB7s was the most impressive during this. Would wake the dead. Going to try different rotors (old Maguras laying around doing nothing) and if that fails, sand the disc and pads and re-bed everything.

What rotors are on there now?

The stockers. I noticed that the slots are angled opposite of my older Avids on my X2 from ~2003 - and those never have squealed from the moment they were installed. I had the Maguras (Louise rotors) laying around so tonight I'll take the bike out and throw some snow on the rotors and see what happens.

Odds are I'll need to sand and re-bed the rotors and pads. I should have done it when I got the bike but went and just rode it right away after adjusting the caliper position.

90 miles in the crud today.  I ended up having to open my brakes all the way.  Should have ridden the cross bike.

(http://i.imgur.com/Y190Tse.jpg)

I rode with a couple of rando guys that I've never ridden with before.  They were very nice guys, but here's what I don't understand.  If you do 12.5 mph for 50 miles, and then pass right by this cool place (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olana) which none of us has ever been to before, wouldn't you take 10 minutes to go look at it?  Well I did, but they didn't want to, they just rolled on.  Amazing place.  Then I rode 40 miles home solo.

It was fine.  They were nice guys.  The route would have been lovely, except the cold fog never lifted.  I doubt they will be back before 7pm. 

The low speed was even fine, all I have eaten in the past 48 hours is a pancake and a banana, so I wasn't looking to hammer.  But I was baffled by not wanting to go look at Olana.  Is not deviating from the route a rando thing?  I would think a lot of the point would be to enjoy unexpected detours.

Who knows without being there.  I can't disagree with moving along if you are already going to be out a few hours past dark if that was their reasoning.  At least nobody was limiting the others freedom by being incapable or insufficient to the days conditions.   Nice pic by the way.

But... we were 50 miles into a planned 120 and still outbound.  Why not take a 10 minute detour from the route, and knock 10 minutes off the planned route?

I said "don't you want to call an audible?" and the routemaster guy said "I have never understood that expression."  Maybe that explains the whole thing, actually.

Lesson learned I guess.  LAJ dresses much less nicely but would have matched you mile for mile and still been out when you went to bed.

Another 300 TSS today. So broken. Set PRs on the final 40-min climb coming back. That guy in the high-vis jacket sat 5 seconds ahead of me the entire climb. Would not work together. I pedaled with increasing rage. PR all the segments, and of course Garmin does not match the long segment of the climb.

Combine with the above fails: http://www.amazon.com/Kneekers-Charcoal-Cycling-Running-Warmers/dp/B00147FBFW


$20, and they're friggin bomber. Except for when you use medium embro, then throw them on to stay warm before a cross race, wash them with an inadequate amount of detergent to remove embro from wool, and next wear them on a day when knee warmers are borderline overkill. That was a mite toasty.

There are other clothing manufacturers than Rapha, AND there are these things called KNEE WARMERS.  Anything colder than 60-65 you should cover your knees.  I believe the Euros wear leg warmers up to 75ish.

defeet knee warmers are quite nice, like wens posted.


But, it's more pro to wear the full-leg warmers. My specialized ones are a few years, many thousands of miles in, and still snug.

I hate full leg warmers, so I just wear long socks to cover the gap.

I don't really consider it complaining, just was adding to the conversation to why one would not be wearing knee or leg warmers.

Rode with some locals and was told "what the salt doesn't destroy, the blacks steal".  Yes, that's racist. Bit of a social economic divide here.

Knee warmers are annoying.

Mine are too tight around my calves and start to hurt where the elastic is, but at the same time they're always falling down at the top.

I don't really consider it complaining, just was adding to the conversation to why one would not be wearing knee or leg warmers.

 
ok

Post by: Vicelord on February 07, 2013, 01:57:32 PM
so, Wylde, are you hinting that if people begin discussing why someone is not wearing warmers, and you explain why you don't like wearing them, it's complaining, rather than taking part in the discussion?

Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: Wylde06 on February 07, 2013, 02:24:40 PM
It sounds like you are just complaining about your particular pair though and not knee warmers in general.  I can understand not liking a pair that dont particulalry fit.

Right.


VL, if your warmers don't fit, get ones that do.  Not using them when it's cold can harm your knees.
"Problems can arise from poor position on the bike, incorrectly fitted cleats, and in some cases, from the thigh muscles working excessively, especially on cold, wet or windy days."
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: Vicelord on February 07, 2013, 04:19:45 PM
they fit fine, they're just annoying because when the calf muscles flex, the elastic is too tight to allow them room and comfort, and the thigh can (not always) slip out of the bib short and then I have to shove it back up there. aggravation.

they fit the same as every other one I put on, so I'm under the assumption this is just how they fit. Any looser on the calf and they'd be falling down, its just when pedaling the leg grows in girth and when I get home I have these red rings.

Rode two different sets of trails today. The first was good as it was packed down by showshoers. The second had some snowshoe tracks on the trail, but then bozos hiking in boots pockmarked the trail so bad it was about impossible to move. Hopefully more folks get out and pack it down before it all melts. I need to make a trail groomer...

Big snowball....

2.  take cell phone picture
3.  apply instagram filter

Skied the MTB loop.  Lots of climbing and descending through the woods (seemed like quite a bit more climbing than descending somehow).  I need to get some hard boots so I can do this when there's less than 12" of snow.  Looking at the Scarpa T4s if anyone here has any opinions.

It's all relative.  Yesterday's ride wasn't especially climby (we did one big climb over the mountains in the background of the photo, but the rest was just rolling).  Over 100 ft per mile is where I start to feel like the climbing is the theme of the ride rather than just being an attribute of the ride.

that's the A-ride guys. Yesterday was like 80mi/6k at 17.x mph. Not really fat people.

Meanwhile, back in reality... snow, ice, mud, basically conditions are so miserable that the whole world is out of focus and has a pointless border around it.

LGO was soon after that pic, right after we cross raced, went by your brother in law's house, and watched a huge group of neon green freds. I figured 5 more minutes of hot was better than crashing, which I surely would while trying to remove arm warmers and ride.

when I was descending mt. lemmon I tried taking my jacket off on a flat'ish part of the mountain and got it off of my torso but it got caught on both gloves and my hands were rendered useless for a bit and the next steep part was coming up.

So here I am with my hands caught in a jacket, no idea what to do, I used one hand to slowly brake to a stop so I could safely remove the jacket. Ever since that experience, I try not to remove clothing while riding.

am i the onyl one who can pee while riding, and take off arm/leg warmers????? neither are very hard. peeing just involved going marginally fast, then pullign the front of your bibs down and peeing. arm and legs warmers are even easier. just pull them off.

On one of the breakfast rides this past fall, one of the guys I ride with took his off while riding.  Unclipped his foot, did some contortionist maneuver, and got them off.   I almost dont want to try it.

To remove your leg/knee warmers you just unclip, rest your leg on the top tube and remove the warmer.  To pee, you do as jks said.

I don't know how I had never found this hill before. Crazy steep for a long time, and had to sneak into a country club to get there. Look closely and you can see Scottsdale airport and then way in the background downtown Phoenix.

taken from screen capture off my first ride with the contour last evening:
This guy is a psycho, I ride past his compound on a lot of rides, he usually sits next to his pos geo tracker or other junker on his lot and it's not uncommon for him to be walking around with is pants around his ankles, I kid you not.  I know he has to be a child molester/serial killer just waiting to be captured.  Last night I captured the guy on camera

You were giving jks a hard time about his picture, so I gave you a hard time about it. The idea that a little bit of tire cut off isn't the whole bike is so ridiculous the only plausible explanation for your comment was that your browser was cutting it off.


But for someone who always claims that he can give as well as he can take, you have a remarkably thin skin.

I can take a little mud slinging, what I can't take are insults.

If you're going to be a jackass, be an entertaining jackass, but don't go around calling people "not smart enough" or "dumbass". Those aren't funny insults, they're just insults.

I don't namecall toward others, and I expect the same consideration toward me.

I don't know why you are focusing on such a very specific form of insult. You are very insulting and derogatory in many different ways, if not that way in particular.

Even though I do not identify very strongly with being Jewish, I am, and I have been insulted by a great many things you have said about "us".

If you are sincere, then thank you, and I accept your apology.

I truly believe that namecalling is the single rudest thing you can do to someone, it's a bit of a hot button with me. If you ever hear me do it myself, it means I'm probably ready to snap in the worst way.

I am sorry I called you names but I really do think you were trying to be a dick to jks and I was simply responding in kind. I also believe that you say deeply hurtful things as a matter of course and it's very sad that you pick "namecalling" as the rude thing while neglecting all your other horridly insulting behaviors.

I was merely making a jab at jks for his lack-luster photography skills cutting the wheels off of his bike, and you then turned it into a massive ordeal. I think anyone on this forum can see that I'm making a massive effort to be more respectful with my online persona than I have been in the past, hell, think about 6 months ago there were nightly arguments!

To me, it seems as though the harder I try, the ruder others are to me, and namecalling is where I draw the line. Quite a few people have mentioned that I can take it as well as I can dish it out, but if you start being insulting for the purpose of hurting, we have an issue.

I'm over it and would prefer that this thread go back to a discussion about ride photos. If you'd like to continue squabbling, please create a thread for it and PM me a direct link.

Ask dubya to post video of the road races around here (or wc, i'm guessing it's the same deal). You drive 2 hours away from civilization, pass the middle of nowhere, continue on a bit, then ride on the least busy roads in the area well past the middle of nowhere.

Not on today's ride, but I sometimes ride out through the Amish Mafia territory, lots of races out there too.

wow, wc, that is remote.
West Chester University is 1.5 miles from my house, West Chester and east towards Philadelphia gets more crowded the closer you get to the dump that is Philly, there are some pockets of nice rural roads east of me, but 98% of my rides head west, Chester County is beautiful and as you see, today I rode on mostly rural roads with little traffic.  if I have to live in eastern PA, (and the wife says I do) Chester County is where I want to live.  I'd like to move a bit farther west from where I am now, maybe one day.

Belgian Waffle Ride. Not a race, but one of those event rides where you get timed and there are some prizes.

(2) in the same group as somebody who pinned his number upside down.

I started with the first wave, which was by most reports entirely composed of self-reported P123. Near the end I started getting caught by people near the front of the second wave. Rode with them till the end. There were a few first wavers with us but everyone in the picture was second wave. They were gearing up and launching into the sprint just around the corner and up the road.

I'm trying to figure out if front left is a long haired dude or a girl.

Girl.

It was! Low 70s. Pretty breezy, but an almost perfect day to ride. The snow had just recently melted up there (still some snow on the north slopes in the woods). Long ways from being green, but if the temps stay up there the scenery will definitely improve :) The brown isn't the most exciting to look at, but the area is "home" to me so I love it.

Reminds me of when I first moved up North from CO and almost came to fists with another kid over which cardinal was the more striking, the brown or the red.  My views have since softened somewhat pertaining to the natural beauty of the brown colored females.  There is nowhere near as much starkly contrasting and brightly colored scenery up here and it can border on dull without significant amounts of snow.

I've noticed that in a few of the crit pics his mom took.  Jack ass bar and lever setup aside he does ride a fair amount past the two hour mark.  So at least give him credit for being immune to the discomfort to some degree.  He is still just having fun instead of worrying about sensible well thought out decisions regarding his setup.

I actually miss riding on that path in a pouring rain with branches falling.  Your son looks like he enjoys riding on his third wheel attachment behind you so he gets all the fun and doesn't have to bother with steering.

Post by: sickmtbnutcase on May 01, 2013, 09:31:04 AM
He does sure seem to like it. I had to put on short crank arms and cut a bit off the seatpost. The kid was blessed with my short legs. But, being only 3 and being able to ride the trail-a-bike is still pretty fun. We can talk more and enjoy what's around us a lot more than when he's in the trailer. Good bonding time I guess :)

Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: rando on May 24, 2013, 12:27:13 PM
The chain is for sure more expensive.  For alloy stuff Thomson is probably not much cheaper than anyone else.  Subtract paying for pro tour sponsorships and high buck marketing campaigns to get the brand recognition they already have and I'd bet others have to charge a bit more.

I don't believe anyone is purposefully arguing with you, I know I am not.  But when you post about how expensive thomson parts are, they aren't any more expensive than any other decent part.  If you buddy is tekking you how expensive thomson stuff is, he's lying.

In Phoenix we have all of the mountain tops preserved so no one can build above a certain elevation. Most mountains are city parks, but one of them is privately held land by the Campbell's Soup family (still preserved) and I work on the mountain across the way from it, and I've been looking at this abandoned road for 5 years wondering what is up there. Today I found out, there are some places where they were presumably going to build homes and never did because of preservation probably hit them mid development. This would have been back in the 50's so when I say "abandoned road" what I really mean is a dusty, rocky, trail.

Made for a fantastic and very unique view when I got to the top, but holy **** it was work. Something like a half mile of 15% just to get to the abandoned dirt road on a 22lb bike with 32x17 gearing. ****.

then I saw a family of ducks (single mother), who I'm quite sure assumed I had bread because they all swam up to me. I've realized that a duck's opinion of me is based on whether or not I have bread. As soon as they figured out that I had none, they lost interest and slowly floated away.

VL I hear you are taking a car trip? Come ride with me.

trust me that's one of the places I am looking at. I just got gipped out of 4 days of vacation so I would have to squeeze a road trip in 5-6 days and I think going to SF and back would mean just driving all the damn time and not enjoying it. Most likely will stay here and spend 2 days in Vegas being a derelict.

at first I was like, mtb on the road, this is fun!

Then I was like, Matt go faster, I keep having to wait! His brake was rubbing the whole ride and he never bothered to say anything and finally I fixed it at coffee.  :lol:

how do you not take a picture of a dildo on the trail?

steep hill was steep. 750ft in 1.1 miles. Actually had to get off and walk a couple of 19% sections. Going to look into an easier cog.

There is a railroad trestle 2 doors down from my house.  After a big fundraising and volunteer effort, it now has railings and decking and connects to the existing rail trail.  I've been on it every day since it opened on Saturday.

they specifically asked that people stay for the podium pics, and that everyone awarded prizes stand for them.

Let me know the next time you're being asked to take a podium picture for 4-5-6 and you turn it down.

Was short on time after the flight and getting supplies for the condo and getting the bike put back together so I just went up the volcano to next highway junction. About 12mi 2500ft.


The pictures don't do it justice, really. They look boring, but it was fairly awesome and vast and tropical. Also solid 40mph wind gusts above 1500ft. Made the descent challenging, despite a straight-ish road.

the ride was hard. I can climb 6k most anyday, but to do it in one long grind against 30mph headwinds for 4.5k of it made for an adventure. For those who've done deathride, it was Carson-pass like winds and slow grind, only 2x as high.

quick notes:

mountain dew bottles in his cages, swim trunks, platform pedals, no helmet, baggy shirt, yet he's on a road bike and wearing proper gloves. He got on our wheel for a while. What's interesting is how many guys this summer I've been seeing without helmets, I know it's hot but there's something wrong with the idea of only being safe when it's comfortable.

I know it's hot but there's something wrong with the idea of only being safe when it's comfortable.

I know a fair number of guys who don't wear helmets unless they have to. They didn't become standard practice until fairly recently, and some of the old types still don't feel they are necessary. Many of them will use them in groups because of "peer pressure" but there are a few (at least one) that never does unless it's a race.

Likewise, there are a few round here who never wear helmets unless they are racing.  IMO it's stupid.

Cool.  Going to make gun parts?
I have the next larger size, a "mill-drill".  I'd like a Bridgeport type knee mill but lack the room.
I took a machining course at the local JC which got my skills up from zero to hopefully won't put an eye out.

I have made a few simple bike parts on it.  Nothing whose failure would be catastrophic.  The most recent were prototype emergency spoke wrenches.

Ha, no, I live in West Chester, PA.  Chester County does have lots of Farms, it's beautiful with hundreds of miles of great cycling roads, but it's also pretty congested.  I usually head west and it's a lot less congested, if I head east, it gets congested real fast and you have pockets of open spaces.  Since I have to live in PA, this is where I want to live, it's a great place, but I'd rather move west.

http://www.amazon.com/Rec-mounts-Out-front-Edge200-Edge500-Edge510/dp/tech-data/B00D6IIBAO (http://www.amazon.com/Rec-mounts-Out-front-Edge200-Edge500-Edge510/dp/tech-data/B00D6IIBAO)

I don't have a Garmin that fits one of those mounts so at this time anything using it would be unlikely, and I don't see any reason to make something that's already out there. I just want to be able to mount my Contour on the K-Edge go-pro mount.

Three bottles... how much did you drink?
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: umd on August 30, 2013, 03:35:05 PM
I was often carrying 4 bottles. I drank a lot, and I also "watered" my right arm since it doesn't sweat.


Lets see... first day:
Started with 2. I think I swapped both out for 2 fresh ones at the "lodge" aid station and picked up a third at the top. Swapped out two at the start of the second climb, swapped one at the top and stopped for a moment and refilled another (didn't want to toss the insulated ones). Took a fourth at the bottom and refilled two at the fire station on the last climb. Swapped one out at Tom's place. Occasionally they weren't empty when I swapped or refilled, but usually were at least close. I stayed pretty well hydrated and had to pee like 5 times the rest of the day after finishing. My weight when I got back to the hotel (after dinner) was almost exactly what I started the day at.


Day 2 was pretty much the same. I started with 2, took a third at the top of the first climb, swapped out 2 at the start of the second climb, swapped 1 at the top (that pic was coming down on the second climb). Swapped 2 at the start of the 3rd. Swapped 1 and took a fourth at the 6000 foot station, tossed 1 and swapped 1 at the 8000 foot station and was good to the end. I finished with probably about a bottle and a half-worth total but I had different fluids in different bottles. Kim missed my perpetuem feed at the 6000 foot station which contributed to my bonk.

Started with more people behind me than just these two... the girl in the back was the only one left near the end of my effort up south mountain today. 2 seconds off my pr that I set chasing ygduf back in December... all on my own today. She's getting really fast, just about 13 seconds behind me, hopefully she gets more into racing soon.

I was the only one to not get a flat today*. Everyone else got one and one guy got two so I was fixing his front while he did the rear. Ran through a buncha thorns I guess.


(http://distilleryimage2.ak.instagram.com/a614ed1c17f311e39d4222000aaa07fd_7.jpg)








*I later found two thorns in my tire but the heads had broken off, so I left the poiny parts in until I got home. Pulled them out, a little bit of sealant leaked out and then it sealed. Score.

Same thing happened to me.

Except

The thorn is embedded in my fingertip.  The sealant worked quite well too.  Sealant in this case meaning the skin grew over it.

Only had time for a short ride today, beautiful weather, almost home then had a lengthy and heated discussion with this guy, I was riding the white line when he nearly clipped me.  Due to wind and then distance, the video did not capture his voice, so I won't post it, here are the pics

(http://i.imgur.com/8KsD9Lsl.jpg)


(http://i.imgur.com/uUsSuo4l.jpg)
He pulled over, I stopped and turned around, after about 5 mins, he apologized for nearly hitting me, I apologized for calling him an Effing Ahole and other 4 letter words. At one point I thought he was gonna get out of the car and we were gonna throw hands, I was about to put the bike down, I am glad it didn't come to that.  It was about 1.25 miles from my house.

So they mow a strip in the grass and call it a race track? I guess it's no different from removing cacti and calling it a trail.

Do you know what cyclocross is?  The whole area is school/farmland.  Farmer Brown just mowed his field, so now we can start riding there, as we ride there more, the "track" will become more apparent.

If my saddle's too high my lower back really lets me know it. I'm completely debilitated 20 minutes into any race like effort and can't ride hard to save my life, and it's all low back. I think it's actually my hamstrings shortening and yanking on stuff, but I feel it in my back. ymmv.

This was the case for me, and I'm glad I had a professional fitting because it was much more complicated than just slightly lowering the saddle. A bad fit didn't cause my herniated disc in my back, but it certainly didn't help. What really hurt was ignoring stretching for the first three years I started riding...

One of my teammates won it overall, and my friend was the top female finisher beating a pro female (the one who beat me last year) in the sprint.

All around a great day!  :thumbsup:

Here's some pics from my first road ride on Mt. Tamalpais. I did the mtb rides over 20 years ago, but until this year had never done the paved climb. I drove a friend down to San Rafael so he could do the Mt. Tam Double Century. I did an out-and-back to the summit of Mt. Tam. I got some pics at the summit and on the descent.

Here's me on a group ride a couple weeks ago (yes, the person who took the picture needs to clean the lens on her camera). I'm on the right. I need to figure out why my helmet always ends up crooked with the GoPro mounted on it. It fits snugly enough, but either I ride with my head to one side too much or the weight of the camera causes it to move. I really don't want to go back to using my ContourHD, as that camera is much more prone to wind noise than the GoPro.

That's what I figured it was. I'm a stickler for clean lenses on my cameras. On the GoPro it is too easy to accidentally brush the lens with a sweaty hand, as it sticks out like a bubble. My smartphone's case does an excellent job of keeping the lens clean. The Mt. Tam pics I posted earlier in this thread were taken with my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S4).

A land conservancy recently purchased a rail trestle and mountain literally 100 feet from my house, and opened it all up.  The hike to the top of the mountain is spectacular.

I set out with a friend to do one of the toughest climbs in the area, a little known gravel climb that goes practically straight up the Shawangunk ridge.  3 miles at 9%, with extreme grades of well over 20%.


Rolling through the old mountain house gatehouse en route to the climb.


(http://i.imgur.com/BmmePib.jpg)


The climb itself starts with 1.5 miles of steady but not brutal grade, in big loopy switchbacks.  Then whoever laid out the road just gave up and it shoots straight up the ridge in relentless stair steps, steep enough that it's hard to keep the wheels on the ground.  This is my buddy disappearing up one of the stair steps.


(http://i.imgur.com/Y9XTOeS.jpg)


And me following on the same piece of trail.


(http://i.imgur.com/Yizl9pg.jpg)


The climb tops out at one of the Shawangunk sky lakes.


(http://i.imgur.com/n2i7pa2.jpg)


Then turns uphill again to climb to Castle Point, one of the highest points on the ridge.  When we started out it was high 30s, up on Castle Point it was low 20s and howling wind, patches of ice on the trail and frozen water bottles.  We had been climbing almost nonstop, over 3000 feet in 18 miles, and we got real cold real fast.  We struggled into all of our previously shedded layers.


(http://distilleryimage0.ak.instagram.com/4d67cf884bcc11e3a2d60a029fa6100c_8.jpg)


Then we proceeded to descend for an hour.  By the time we got back my hands felt like frozen steaks stuck to the end of my arms.


Great ride though.

They've been doing the stripe thing for years.  Was a half rainbow curved graphic on the jersey and straight on the shorts until the middle of last year.  Did I hear right your new kit has the rainbow straight on it?


Having a hard time looking at these sunny photos of amazing scenery.  Not to mention well designed kits.  Thanks for the reminders of how much better life can be.

I will have a whole herd in my yard at times, I've counted as many as 13 at once.  They also spread lymes disease, which I believe my county in near the top with affected people in the US.  I don't like deer.

Deer are vermin.  They kill more people than any other animal on the continent (not counting other people).  Baby deer are cute though :)


You know what's bizarre is that you can hunt deer but you're not allowed to sell the meat.  If you see venison an a restaurant menu it's almost always from New Zealand.  There are 40 million deer in this country and 40 million people in poverty, you do the math.

Typically not the case with mine, actually it typically reads 3-4 degrees low. My 500 read high constantly, and switching from the 500 to the 510 I would say it was a difference by as many as 8-10 degrees.

You can take a picture of anything you can see, unless it specifically says no photographs, or if you are on private property using it for profit without the owner's consent.

I used to carry the "photographer's rights" with me when I shot a lot. Occasionally someone, often an officer, would harass me about taking pictures of bridges, the light rail, tall buildings, etc. and say that it could be used for terrorism.

one of the most fun days ever. The century ended with some pretty tough climbing, and we were told do whatever we want on the climbs just wait at the top. This is how I looked, jersey open, mouth agape, grinding going up the last hill that was 1.5mi 9% average. I got #6 on the strava board! Looks like there used to be a road race out there judging by the old rides uploaded together.

I didn't even try deciphering that.

Anything that can go in a saddle bag can go in your pocket. If your pockets are too full, htfu, no one needs that much stuff.

I'm going to use my saddle bag in my pocket.

100+ miles overnight ride with just a fanny pack. There is nowhere in America where services are so far apart that you'd need all that crap on your bike.

The point of showing that pros use saddlebags when training is that not using a saddle bag doesn't make one "pro".  Or a better rider.  And as a corollary, having one doesn't make one less serious a rider or indicate their riding talent.

(the multi world champ I sometimes ride with has one of those huge mini floor pumps clipped on her training bike, and a saddlebag, and a blinkie too.  The bike shop owner/former cat 1 has a huge saddlebag stuffed with tools because he's always stopping to help people.)

The Trek only has one set of bottle braze ons and frankly it is too cold for carrying a water bottle.  So I've been trying out one of those PRO storage bottles.  Having to carry an actual wrench for the track bolts makes it a very economical decision.  I still carry a mini pump in my jersey because using CO2 in -30 F doesn't work very well. 


Never really been a fan of seatbags but always had one on my mtb's so I never had to deal with crashing and spending the next half hour locating the contents of my pockets.  If I got another full suspension I'd probably opt for one of the storage bottles instead and keep a saddle bag around on the off chance I needed to use a water bottle instead of carrying a bladder.

I stopped carrying one for awhile and was using a Lenzyne pouch that I put in my center pocket. That worked well as I did not have to move it from one bike to the next, but late in the summer I flatted and discovered my sweat had frozen the zipper closed.


I use an Arundel tubular bag now. It's pretty big, but narrow and fits my little pump and co2 inside.

Mine died. The zipper track rubbed against the bottom edge of the saddle and I had to destroy it to get a tire out. Back to just strapping the tire to the seatpost post which works but sometimes the tire likes to wiggle away. Considering getting another but I don't really like it's attachment so I'm on the fence.

I don't think they manufactured it with salt cakes in the zipper, so no the bag was fine. If I had stayed that route I would just make sure and opened it once and awhile and maybe add a bit of oil or grease to the zipper.

That's not what i meant so dickheaded comments aside, I know many people who use the lezyne bag with no issues. The worst I ever saw was one got a bit crunchy when opened. You should have had it warrantied.

It wasn't a defect of the product. Any zipper would have failed from that kind of abrasion. They may replace it but I don't feel as though I'm owed it.

it isn't about looks, it's about utility. sure you can put a tube+pump in your pocket. that's how I trained for a while. but it gets annoying. and the more you ride the more annoying it gets (hence the talk about what pros do). especially when you get into three bottle season, then it gets really annoying. strap it to your bike and you don't even know it's there.

Jeez. I'm starting to wonder how I manage to do it. I mean you all make it seem so hard to use my pocket for flat tire stuff I'm hoping I can continue to do it!

I've done it with three bottles as well but I find it easier to stop at a gas station and get water.

Same thing here.  2 weeks ago they were out patching some of the big potholes  :facepalm:   I can guarantee that after today all that patch will be tore up and the potholes will be even bigger.  We got another 4-5 inches of snow last night and it supposed to snow for part of the day today, so the plows are going to be out in full force.  Yay roads!

I didn't take many pics from rides in CR but I will share what few I have...

This is the steepest paved road I have ever been on.  The Strava profile of it is insane, and therefore cannot be trusted, however, I have done quite a bit of climbing over the years and this road was like a mile at a grade that I had only seen in switchbacks previously.  Walking was involved.

I found it quite comfortable, but for harder efforts there was a lot of sweating.  I think the temps were in the high 80s on sunny days.  The wind there can be insanely strong though.  That day I tried to climb the "Trocha a San Luis"  (the stupid steep road) I was quite concerned that I would get blown off a cliff.  Perhaps a calmer day would have been a better choice.

Here's a short vid I took at a "calm" moment  (the gusts are like 50mph so none of those were on the vid)

101 miles on the single speed. Lots of highlights but the topper was the Basha Kill, where I stared at a frozen, mostly vertical stream for about 10 minutes trying to understand why it wasn't a frozen waterfall.

(the sunset photo is from my back window, after I got home and started eating everything in the house.)

Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: globecanvas on January 27, 2014, 07:24:23 PM
What were the conditions like?


High 20s, very gusty, lots of blowing snow, and it snowed on me for about an hour too.  About 40 of the miles were through rolling farmland and the wind was a lot worse there.  Then it started to clear up and get colder.  Sunny and cold is a lot nicer than gusty and slightly less cold.


Road conditions were mostly fine, though there was an awful lot of sand on the road.  I think the freewheel is succumbing to the elements, it started clunking toward the end of the ride.  I was prepared to go fixie if need be but it kept its **** together until I got home.

Guess it had been awhile since I visited so there was plenty more to read as well.  Take it most of locals opted for trainers instead of beating the roads into submission with you.  Keep up the good work, very enjoyable reading.   


I remember a far off time I could push around a 42/16 and use road tires.

A friend bequeathed me some nice studded 35c tires (Schwalbe Marathon Winters) that he never used, as well a set of amazingly cheap-as-in-bad wheels.  I put the tires on the wheels and put the wheels on the cross bike, then headed out to see how things went in the snow.


On plowed, paved roads they were fine, noisy but way easier rolling than a 2" MTB tire. On gravel roads with packed snow they were pretty good.  They didn't so much grip, it's more like the tires made it easier to stop washouts after they start but before you end up on your ass.  On trails with 3-5" of virgin snow they were just OK.  It took me a while to get the zen of riding snowy trails, you need a bit of momentum, steady medium-high cadence, and some confidence. 


Conclusion: 35c studded tires do not a fat bike make.  Not that I want a fat bike.  I think these tires are probably best for commuters who have to deal with icy patches.  I expect I'll take them off and never put them back on, although I'll wait until after this new 16" we're supposed to get tonight.

Studded tires are not for fresh snow or plowed roads.  They do help when you are riding places that don't get plowed and the snow compacts into uneven multiple inch thick ice.  Or for screwing around on a frozen lake.

Power still out in a lot of places.... What?

There are typically a lot of places that need power lines repaired when there are big storms. Some of the repairs involve removing give trees, it can take a crew a full day to do one of those.

Means if there are ten of them in an area, plus a bunch of smaller repairs needed, and if there are, say, only ten crews in the area, some people are going to be waiting.

A buddy of mine thought that hairpin would be a good place to set up his food truck. (Every rock climber in the Gunks takes that road.). He got permission from the town, which took forever. He parked the food truck there and within 15 minutes the state troopers showed up and told him to move or get arrested for endangerment.

That road is in better condition than about 75% of the roads here.  If they are clear, they are riddled with potholes. It will take years to fix these already crappy roads, if they even decide to.

LVG rode a Photon R that was sourced through my LBS for a season. Not sure all the reasons she switched for this season, but the frame is on display at the shop.


I did hear she did not like how the bike shifted... this was likely directly related who ever built it up running bare shift cables across the bottom of the bottom bracket. It has two pretty deep groves ground into the carbon under there. :facepalm:

Nice one WC.  How bout this winter yo?
Worst winter in Philly area, not the snowiest, but the most storms and the snow just lingered on the ground for months.  I think there was snow on the ground from before christmas until today.  My wife doesn't understand how miserable winter makes me, I really don't like the cold.


The ride last night was enjoyable tho, I attempted a 20 min test, to keep warm and make the time go fast, not ideal conditions or roads to test, but it was 20watts higher than my test in early Jan, still ~30 watts lower than when I was racing in 2012.  More work to do...

Meeting House Road on the Battenkill course, yesterday.  The dot up the road is me.  I'm in as good shape as I have ever been, but apprehensive.  Usually the course favors power over climbing but there's significantly more climbing than either of the past two years.

Rode to work today for the first time this season, was cold and there was way more traffic than ever before, which may jeopardize me commuting to work, which sucks because 1. I can get quality bike time and 2. there are some great places to ride along the way, but some are sketchy.

Admittedly lots of the roads on my commute are narrow, but at 6am they used to be seldom traveled.  Now the roads I normally ride on, some are wider.  This there were no driver incidents, just more traffic than there used to be.  I just don't think the risk is worth it.  Especially since half the people were on their phones.

Don't throw in the towel yet on commuting, maybe it was just an unusually trafficky day.

First actual spring like day.  Still chilly, but sunny and full of possibility.


To celebrate I did 3x8 vo2max which was really awful.

At the race Saturday, there will be a bunch of photographers camped out at this spot.

I'd and you would have to dedicate at least 3 days for 1 race and it's the kind of race where there's a good chance you will flat and your race would be over.  IMHO, it's not worth the cost/time required.  I can ride some gravel roads locally.  Gravel roads are fun to ride on, but not fun to ride on with 100 other cat3 knuckleheads.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: globecanvas on April 03, 2014, 08:26:42 AM
Hey, I'll dissent.  This will be my 3rd Battenkill and I think it's a great event.  The course is fun, the area is pretty, the competition is top notch, and the whole thing is a unique spectacle.  2500 racers!


People knock the promoter for high entry fees, but in my experience he delivers a good product.  I'm sure there have been problems and glitches, but my race experience has always gone as well as could be expected given the huge number of moving parts.  Also, the host town really seems to embrace the race, which makes for a good vibe.


I'm also biased because the course suits me.  Despite the elevation gain, it's more about repeatable power over punchy climbs than about w/kg.  At least in the past that's been the case, this year's course is the climbiest that I can recall.



Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: WCroadie on April 03, 2014, 08:58:48 AM
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't knocking the race, just that for me, It's an 8hr drive each way, and by cost, I meant gas/food/lodging, not the cost of the race entry.  If it were closer, I would do it.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: globecanvas on April 03, 2014, 09:12:22 AM
Just for a sense of scale... there's a P/1 field, a cat 2-only field, two cat 3 fields, five cat 4 fields (should be more, my field has 116 registered), thirteen cat 5 fields, seven masters fields (the 50+ alone has over 100 entries), nine juniors fields, and five women's fields.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: ygduf on April 03, 2014, 11:01:40 AM
thats... a lot of podiums. 44 if add correctly.


I know a guy who won battenkill and got a tattoo to commemorate it. But now that I know there are so many winners, that might be a little silly.


Also kind of explains how he won.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: globecanvas on April 03, 2014, 11:08:37 AM
The two local teams (ie, my riding buddies) together had 6 7 podiums last year.


Having said that, they are all full fields, and it's an A race for many people, so it's not like the sheer number of total participants devalues anyone's success.  If you want to win your cat 4 or whatever field, you still have to beat 100 other guys.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: WCroadie on April 03, 2014, 01:10:35 PM
Yes, it is most definitely a legit win.

yeah but it's not, like, constant grade. The last turn to head toward the climb to the top of it is 6.5mi 1,285 feet. The last .7mi is way steep, probably one of the steepest hills in town.

Next time you take it in to have the cables and/or housing done mention it.  They are nice to have for when you need to adjust on the fly like that

That was the first time in 30k miles I've ever had to stop to adjust.

I have them but I can't ever tell if the turning is working or if I'm turning them the correct way. Never use them.

I dont use mine much...but the occasional time I do need to its nice that they are there.  Although it usually takes a turn or two each way to figure out which way to go!

I got off the bike and adjusted it then tried to make up the 10-12 seconds I lost.

You turn them the direction that makes the noise get quieter.   I use the inline adjuster on my cross bike all the time.

Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: wens on May 06, 2014, 09:46:16 PM
That's because cross bikes never shift properly after their first good mud bath. Super irritating trying to get it dialed in training on the road, since it keeps changing as the gunk flakes off!

Post by: ygduf on May 07, 2014, 10:25:27 AM
If you're referring to me, I get confused with the inline adjusters. presumably they are righty-tighty but did I put them in upside down? Is the adjuster screwing together or is it just rotating around the break housing? Etc.


I prefer to just set my **** up right the first time.

I've used mine, but rarely. Usually it's the first handful of rides after new cables are installed and then maybe 8000mi later when they start degrading and need to be replaced (the cables).

VL, the next time you need them you will be glad you have them. Could be in the middle of a race, ya know...

Went and got a fit done yesterday.  When we were setting up we realized the trainer that he had was broken..and since he said they sell like 3 trainers a year they don't carry any in stock and he would have to go home and get his...
 
So I went for a quick ride while he drove home for the trainer.

it's super awkward because that jersey only has two pockets and they're wider than usual, so things tend to sag more. ****ty fitting clothing starts a snowball of things going wrong right when you put it on. The non team kit jerseys I've recently purchased keep things tight to my back so I don't look like I'm a berry picker.

Also, you'll notice that guttertech and our buddy mike also don't have saddle bags, which are definitely too bobo.

I dunno about the saddle bag during race season, I get tired of taking it off and putting it on, so I do flat kit in the pocket unless I'm going to need three bottles. There are a lot of park/public drinking fountains around here, so that's only a couple times per summer. Easier to deal with than switching a saddle bag three times per week.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: globecanvas on June 12, 2014, 10:16:19 PM
This year I haven't even been riding my race bike except in races, just because it's usually got deep wheels and a 25 cassette and no saddle bag on it and it's easier to grab the B bike (with saddle bag, frame pump, and 28 cassette) than to take the time to change stuff.


Then I feel extra strong in races because the race bike is 3 lbs lighter with bigger gears!

I honestly don't think I have ever seen a frame pump in real life,  honest. It's one of those things I think I would remember seeing.

I really just object to the Miley mindset of thinking that anyone who is a lower cat doesn't know what they are doing,  and the holier than thou attitude because of a friggin cat 3 upgrade followed up by a bunch of dnf or barely-hanging-on crit finishes.

That **** is insufferable. I don't even care about the frame pump/seat bag or nothing srgument, who cares, to each their own. But don't act like a ****ing dick with a chip on his shoulder about it.

Do you mean like an old-skool pump that goes all the way across the top tube, or any pump attached to the frame?
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread

The top tube kind. I see the mini pumps mounted by water bottles every now and then but it's definitely a rarity.

I think "most people" just mean a pump attached to the frame when they say frame pump. Unless they are over 50. Such pumps are fairly common here. Maybe we just run into more debris.

I'm with VL here, I know of 1 guy who uses a frame pump, not the attached to bottle cage kind, the real frame pump.  And it also came lose on a down hill once, cause a lot of chaos at 40mph.

I never said anything about how strong anyone is, you brought that into this. But regardless of how strong you are I'll drop you when you're stopping to buy food because your pockets were too stuffed with a co2 and tube to fit enough food for a 5 hour ride.

Maybe the northeast is different but the vast majority of people I know who ride a lot (15-20hrs/week) use frame pumps and saddle bags.

Honestly I don't give a **** what you do. But your image obsessed attitude is just as holier than thou as my cat 4 joke. I'd rather look like someone who rides their bike than look like someone who wants to look cool spinning around town.

Nice.  One of my friends had an ongoing strava ride title "turtle rescue #25", etc. 


Come mid-August, roads near lakes and rivers will be littered with exploded snapping turtles for about a week.  Can't really help those guys across the road.

I bought it from Ribble for like $45. I checked out the warranty procedure. It honestly looks like more than $45 worth of trouble to find out if it's covered.

Spectacular ride with some teammates yesterday.  Through New York, Massachusetts, and Connecticut, including Bash Bish (http://davidschoen.com/albums/userpics/10001/normal_sny_7_Karena_Wedaa_at_Bash_Bish_Falls_w.jpg) (link NSFW, it happened to be the first thing that came up when I googled).


About half was gorgeous winding country lanes and the other half was gravel, including an 8 mile grinder of a climb on roads that go from paved to sort of paved to dirt to doubletrack.  We were all punchy and stupid by the top of the climb.  At the top there's a big WARNING sign and then a 2 mile steep descent on a terrible rutted dirt road.  I was fully out of control of the bike for several stretches on the descent, vibrating so hard I couldn't see anything, slamming over ruts at 30 mph and keeping it upright by sheer luck. 


Really, really pretty ride.  Today I have my first saddle sores ever though :( I guess because of the gravel road taint hammering.  Had some trouble sleeping because of it, even.

Picture of me riding the "7 Sisters" (I think that is a thing?) on my only ride out of SF a couple weeks ago.

Probably on the brakes descending some road during Levi's Gran Fondo.

I was greeted by the rare sight and scent of a freshly serviced biff and instinctively pinched little rando in surprise when my stream splattered instead of splashing harmlessly far below.  Thereby struck by inspiration to describe the fresh Spring sights and sounds of my ride balancing with the gritty reality of the conditions it took place in I used my phone to record the scene.  Until the emotionally unsettled disturbance that greeted me when I uploaded my ride those pictures were meant to stay a private humor. 


Unsettling, you agree.

Post by: rando on April 22, 2015, 08:18:32 AM
I'll give you that this time.  Before leaving on my ride yesterday morning I gave VL kudos on his ride titled "gainey + abnormally good mood" (italics mine).  Followed by leaving a comment, which I can't quote word for word without record, to the tune of being glad he enjoyed his ride in pleasantly mild weather and I intended to do the same in classics conditions.


His response.


(http://i.imgur.com/TvZjMLW.png)


Chipper to say the least coming from someone bouncing on rainbows their ride was so life affirming.  Whatever, princesses gonna princess, at this point is all I see.  So I shoot back a calming response, again lacking verbatim here, about not taking offense when someone points out an enjoyable contradiction and we should talk if he is really that upset about ????.  Not in the least concerned about his post-velo emotional roller coaster I suit up and go out into the wind and snow.  By the time I have a smoked sea salt mocha and 40 mile ride he has taken every rash step available to him against me. 


Apparently before blocking me and whatever personally unsatisfying lashing at my personage he followed through with he edited the ride title :( and shot off the following comment.


(http://i.imgur.com/ad9SDzD.png)


Now what little I profess to understand of the human mind tells me this is not the actions of a steady individual.  Abnormal sticks out particularly given its previous usage.  Hoping for the best but knowing I'm dealing with someone who has tried to drink them self to death at least once in the short time that I've known of them I came here and tried to reason with him to seek help.  That he might think I'm a bad guy, and persecuting him, and a prick, and anything but what offering to make that call for him if need be makes me.  That's alright, no ****s given if he doesn't like it.  I make it very clear that this is a personal problem he has forced me to address publicly without using any harsh or demeaning language.  Say I will respect his boundaries but it is really very concerning that he is saying he afraid of me.  The wild mood swings among other signifiers are very prominent red flags something could potentially go very wrong if left to steamroll into deeper consequences. 


It gets erased.  !!!


So umd, that is what this is about. (http://socialcyclists.org/road-racing/twitter-feed-ii/msg106262/#msg106262)  It is on your hands now if that is the type of behavior you find pursuant to good moderation.

Rando this is the last thing I'm going to ever say to you.

As displayed in the above rant, you take pretty deep shots at people, you constantly cry martyr, and you generally have a way of really irritating people. Personally your words often make me very uncomfortable and despite being mildly annoyed by you constantly telling me how good my weather is and how bad yours is and implying that you're some Hardman, I put up with it for a long time.

I'm not going to try to play psychoanalyst with you because I don't care enough, but you taking screenshots of strava comments (conveniently not your own) makes me feel really uneasy, as does most of what you do.

I'm going to go on the rest of my life not concerning myself with your existence. I didn't want to comment back to you but you seemed to really desire a response so I acquiesced.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread

TBH this place is a roiling pot of dysfunction.  What members remain use this place as a support group.  For that reason I suspected you were unable to see an issue arising.  Deflection and subversion are not how healthy adults handle situations like this.  Those are both fearful responses.  Had I recognized the delicacy of the situation earlier I would not have approached it in the same manner.  As it stands I only hope that if there was a serious and potentially unchecked issue developing within one person here I did my best before they were unreachable.  Stood outside the hole they tried to hide in and tried to talk. 


Any use of shocking figurative examples left hanging long enough to make analogy were to this end.  I'm left to discard of those images after only being able to conclude the hurtful behavior towards others is symptomatic instead of wanton.

You know that saying about "if you meet one *******, you met an *******, but if you only meet *******s, you might be the *******" - well, you're not an ******* and I'm not going to call you weird, but there is some word to substitute in the aforementioned that fits this situation.

Reverting to the argumentative style evolved from disputes with your wife.  Call and ass and ass or don't call it one by omission. 


I think it's worth pointing out cracking jokes is what consistently saw me removed from chat, banned, disgraced (If that is actually possible other than by fault of associations here), or otherwise treated criminally.  With rare exception this is not serious business but I'm not keen on playing whipping boy.   



Glad you disagree in a civil way and I also like you and to hear of your successes on the bike.  Dare say a select few of you are the bright spots that keep me checking in on this place sporadically.  Bash things out in good brusque fashion and keep moving ahead.  Without doubt more interested in riding than hearing what neurosis is habitating inside someone this very moment.

You're putting words in my post. I said I'm not calling you an *******, and I'm not going to say weird, but your posts consistently fail to communicate what you are trying to communicate... and it ain't all of us.


It's unfair of you to get upset because we don't get what you're talking about. There's only like 10 people in this forum, but that is n=10 who had no clue what the **** you were talking about or why you posted pictures of cesspools inside portable toilets.

Reading should not take significant effort. I occasionally spend significant effort trying to understand your posts and often come up clueless. The rest of my life experience indicates to me that I am not an idiot. I don't know what else to say.

I'll post this here since only jonesy and I read the MTB thread, so I rode my MTB today at the awesome White Clay State Park in DE, I found another side of the park which I haven't ridden before, there was this tunnel that went under a road, I had to stop here cause my sunglasses fell, I stopped the camera then started riding again, right past the sandbags on the right side, the dirt is all washed away and the water got deeper and the bottom was pretty much metal.


Now do I need to tell you what happens when you ride a MTB in water on bare metal?  It's like ice, needless to say I fell!  My right side was soaked and I was freezing for most of the ride after, temps was abt 55f.  Thankfully no one saw me  :P

Before the water mishap, I rode past a remote control air field, it was pretty cool, I want a big RC airplane!

Got out for a ride last evening and used me new gopro mount, generic handlebar mount $9 from amazon, hopefully VL approves of this placement.


The house on the right is just outside my neighborhood, it is sweet, I would love to own it, recently sold for 800k so I will probably never be able to afford it:

Dark and sort of gloomy today, but some sort of weird light inversion was happening over the Catskills.  There was also a nesting bald eagle about 50 feet from here, but I didn't bother to take a photo because it would have just looked like a dot.

Harder! Not sure if because steeper, or if because very tired. Painted Cave was especially tough. Really great riding out here.

The river is a little low right here.  Whats crazy is that this part of the river had a major ice jam/flood this winter when everything started to thaw and come downstream.  Huge chunks of ice flowed over the road/trees/nearby cemetery and did a lot of damage.  You can see the damage on the trees just right of center..some spots up the road its even worse.

It was supposed to be the only stop during the ride.  All sort of nutritious and caffeinated treats wasted when Rapha guy forgot to bring the keys with.  Despite breaking it to us softly a renegade faction decided an attempt to break in was warranted.  As penance for his oversight we slipped away with every female in attendance and left him with the dead weight that had been slowing us down all night.

Yes, I was asking if him and his wife get out riding more often nowadays.  She had some nagging injuries that kept her from swimming followed by a bike ride and then a run.  He has said his priorities have shifted from racing.  Hence asking how they were doing in an offhand and purportedly friendly manner.

Someone pointed me towards this photo @rapha_tillie took before the ACF x Rapha Midnight Century.  Who do you suppose that handsome guy in vintage Rapha is?  We may never know since his back is to the camera.

no, but it's quite awesome. I ride with ex-pros and ex-olympians all the time. world champs all the time. nat champs every group ride. I pay my respects, try not to be _too_ starstruck and then try and kick the hell out of them. In basketball, football, the other football, any other non-wheeled sport I'd get laughed out of the place. The draft is a great equalizer.

He used to yell a lot at people, he is one of the forefathers of cycling round here started/oversees a lot of the rides that the racer folks partake in.  He started the cross scene here, he started racing cross years ago, before it was cool, raced in Europe, etc.  He's a really good dude and excellent cross racer and one of my closest cycling friends.

Bought a new rim in..May? to have rebuilt around the hub from my Boyd (the rim cracked just outside of the warranty and he wanted nothing to do with it).  Finally had it built up..just in time for the end of the season!

(https://dgtzuqphqg23d.cloudfront.net/PLoOTRCgvY8qAWBpcr_dHWHgilr17EyQ9zuHKZdZ73M-768x768.jpg)

25mm wide at the brake track..rolls nice. I've missed having a wide rear wheel.

Thanks Jonesy


W - if you get a new bike you may have trouble fitting that wheel on.  Also what's the max PSI for that wheel?  I know the 25mm HED's are 100PSI


VL - did you ride that? I hope so.

That's a good question...that im not seeing an answer to on their website.  I've typically been running right around 110-115 with my other non wide wheel and can probably comfortably do 100 with this one (I've gotten into the habit of pumping my tires to 120 since when I started riding I was a lot heavier)

Aren't they pretty equal? Both are off brand carbon wheels with similar price points and specs I thought.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: WCroadie on September 01, 2015, 02:55:24 PM
I'm pretty sure Boyd is much better than FLO, Boyd went on to Start Edge composites (I believe).  FLO is a chinese carbon product.
Title: Re: The Ride Photo Thread
Post by: Wylde06 on September 01, 2015, 04:07:09 PM
They both have carbon wheels, but mine aren't.  And Boyd, as far as I know, has nothing to do with Edge/Enve. Started up in 2011 and has been growing since.  Flo really caught on with the Slowtwitch crowd (I get bored sometimes and lurk the forums).  I couldn't really tell you which is better though, I had a bad experience with Boyd, and only have a single rim from Flo

it is designed in Australia and I'm sure they have it made by Chinese factories but I'm not 100% sure on that. The fit is so dialed and I love the designs. Re-stocks do happen, follow them on Instagram and they update it, doesn't hurt that they are super nice and love to interact with their customers.

Use a really dramatic filter that mutes darks and saturates colors for unrealistic contrast.  Or you could spend some time to learn how to do it correctly.   :)

First ride in the new shoes..felt pretty good

I dont think I will be able to get away with thicker socks with these (lots of ventilation at the front, plus not enough room in the shoes I dont think) so I will be sure to keep my Sidi's for when it gets colder, but after one ride I like them

You can't go wrong riding up there. When they re-opened Evans to car traffic, there is a bit more traffic, but for the most part, folks are civil. Riding up the Central City Parkway from I-70 is it's own level of hell, especially on a warm day. But, it's still good.  :)

The ride up to Echo lake had a lot of traffic but there were no issues.  Once I turned off towards Squaw Pass I saw maybe 1 car the whole ride back down into Evergreen.  Really awesome road...

I got to choose the route and lead the shop ride today, so of course there were asinine things involved. There's a road that is about 1/4 mile of 10% and at the top is a 29% driveway. I have tried, successfully, to go up it once so there was no need for me to try again though a number of the guys wanted to give it a shot. About a half-dozen tried and only one succeeded.  :thumbsup:

Rode out through Amish farmland today, the roads were a little wet as the sun came out and warmed the cool air quickly, there is a thin layer of horse manure all over the roads, whenever a car passed we got sprayed with manure, it was nasty, beautiful day for a ride though got up to about 65, I'll take it.

Had to steal the cages off my other bikes until the ones I ordered show up (the other matching cage to the front I stripped the bolt on the other bike, so I took the king cage off the tt bike)


Bike felt good today, seatpost was too high so I dropped it when I got home.  I will need to get different bars, the reach to the levers in the drops is terrible..but I will deal with it for now.  Will definitely get them before racing starts up

I really like my 3t bars, but I will see if these ultegra levers can be adjusted


6800? they can and it's really easy. just pull back the rubber hood and there's a plastic flathead screw that you can adjust

The most technical thing around here isnt very technical.  Thats why I dont have a cross bike or a mountain bike...

Post by: WCroadie on March 11, 2016, 07:29:47 AM
I could be wrong, but I imagine CA and AZ has so much mtb riding that isn't real technical, around here there are wet tree roots and lots of rocks which makes me sometimes ride like umd, trying not to die.  People who came to PA when MTB nats were were complained about the course, being too rocky and dangerous.  No way I will ride that course, but there are a few places near me that aren't a technical so I try and stick to those places, it can be great fun, but yeah, if you don't like it, it will be no fun.  Gravel and dirt road riding on CX bikes is a blast as well.

Yeah you're right, jagged rocks, actual mountains, and cacti are not real obstacles.

The technicality of a race course does not compare to trying to ride down the side of a 4000 foot mountain. I don't care to get into a my rides are harder than your rides, that's not the point. There is plenty of crap around here that is way over my comfort level.

And also the crux (haha, get it?) of my post was that anything you can't ride on a CX bike is too technical for me.

It's hard to quote on my phone. WC said something about the MTB nats courses being more technical there than what's in CA and I was saying that how technical they make a race course is not comparable to how technical mountain trails can be.

Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to say the east coast is harder/more technical than the west, what I mean is, my friends who raced nats when it was here said lots of racers from the midwest and west complained about the rock-y-ness and dangerous-ness of the Nats course, rock gardens, short steep rocky descents, etc.  The only place I've ridden MTB other than local is Breckenridge, and yes one trail at about a 500 ft cliff on the side of the trail, had I fell I would have died, but the rest of the trails, were mostly smooth, fast, twisty, but smooth.


I know there are places in Colorado, Utah, California, Arizona, etc with trails wayyyyyyyy more technical and dangerous than anything around me, but from videos and pics I've seen, there appears to be tons of smooth, flowy, awesome looking mtb trails.


Watch a couple minutes of this, I would not ride this, this is not fun to me, this is one of the local MTB trails, go to 6:33 and watch some
