I rode with a guy who was on an American development team in Belgium for a brief time. Really interesting to hear his experiences. After not cracking the top 20, he was given a prescription to take to the vet. He didnt. That's how it was told to me anyway...

Even 5 years ago I would not have been surprised to hear that. Today I think it is a different story. But then I said that back in the late 1990's too.

Here is the data from last weeks Montana ride. It was super fun. The Cycling House does a fantastic job coordinating and supporting this ride.

The Cycling House just uploaded photos and some drone footage. Here is a short video of a few of us. I'm in the high-vis get up.

Many years of rolling on them. Great for balance and developing a good spin. At 72 my balance isn't what is used to be. I use a stationery trainer and work out to the Sufferfest videos. So, where do i post these to sell.

Posting them here will garner the most attention from those likely to be interested.

Just got done installing SRAM eTAP on the wife's TT bike. Super slick, felt awesome on the test ride and the shifting dynamic is very intuitive.

Blip shifters work well fully covered by cork tape.






Blip box mounted on the stem, what little wires are exposed are nice and neat. I cleaned them up a bit more than this as well.





Derailleurs...

I don't have a point of reference as the only electronic shifting i've used is eTAP, but in my opinion, as an industrial designer, this is very well designed and with even better execution.

I'm REALLY looking forward to my road bike getting back from Montana so i can install eTAP on it as well.

Makes me think on my 4 years of Belgian competition..

Thanks for sharing

In the small small time I've seen it and messed with it on a demo stand, it does seem pretty neat.

Just how do you attain the title of "Official" anything in OT? Because I have a swim spa topic I'm hoping earns me some extra reps.
