Well I’ve been kinda run off my feet lately, but yet not that much of interest happening … the MR2 is for sale now, guitar recital is done and went better than it could have but worse than it should have (does that ever change?!), planning Don’s bachelor party which is a bit bigger task than I really expected (it should be good though), etc.
And, this little rocketship is done.
No, it’s not remotely comfortable. It isn’t bad for about 20km though, which is the longest distance I ever plan to ride it, except for the Morden 30km bike leg. Ride quality is quite good, it’s just the position that hurts a bit … it’s okay though when you’re hammering, and that’s all this thing is meant for. And it definitely is very very fast. Having said that, I am still dialing in the position and I think I may try going down and back a bit. It isn’t UCI legal now, not that I’m worried about that until next year at least, but it is a point to consider. I need to get video so I can do the “eyeball wind tunnel” analysis.
