Power/weight

I think it's power/area too. I'm dense (lol) at 155-200 the past five or so years. My peak power hasn't change much at all, from 155 on up. I figure I should be able to do a similar jump at 150 lbs or even slightly lower.

But I haven't been able to lose weight, gained it in fact. Bah.

It will be a race bike once I race it in March.


Sadly this is bike racing and not everyone gets a pony.

Awesome, Herbie. I disagree with your assessment. It's a race bike now. It will get deflowered in March.

Not flashy, but it gets the job done.

awesome.
You can be the strongest guy in the field but if you don't know how to use it, when to use it, and have the b*lls to use it at the right time, you'll lose.

My ride. Unfortunately bent the rear triangle by my friend accidentally running it over this weekend, so new bike on the way soon:

I know those Windsor frames aren't the lightest thing in the world, but that guy really weighs 22lbs with those blackwells on it?

Is your friend still alive?

Your next bike should have a double.

Yup, was 26lbs when I got it from BD. I think there is a lead brick in the frame somewhere, but apparantly that wasn't enough to keep it from bending! I actually weighed my roommates Windsor cross bike and it weighs 22.5lbs with lights, reflectors, 25 studded tires, saddle bag, etc. The cross bike should never be lighter or as light as a road bike!

I was joking around with my buddy all weekend about how I wish my bike flew off the rack or something. So I got what was coming to me! Sat it down next to his car and apparently he felt the need to move the car the 10 seconds I was gone. Squish.

Yeah I was just about to actually put a double on this because I was having so much trouble keeping up on the downhills. But now just going to upgrade everything, I felt like I should have had a nicer bike anyways considering how much I ride. This was still the bike that I used to get back into cycling.
