    Thanks, Dickie. Hope to see you before you leave!

    I did get the trailer sorted -- picked a like-new Burley Bee up off of CL for $100, which will work great for the year or so we have left of use...

    Yeah, very good. I used to be more meticulous about hang drying lycra, but at some point it just started going into the dryer. Probably if I bought more expensive shorts I'd do better at that. But I...

    Yeah, that stuff works well, though I have found that stuff that goes into the dryer tends to have patches start peeling after awhile (half dozen washes?). Using the glue that they sell with it...

    Growing up Lutheran I was told [by my dad] that Catholics might not go to heaven. Idol worship and all. So I am not sure about that.

    Even a cat-5 race is not a soft race by MTB or gravel standards. Road racing gets pretty extreme fitness.

    That looks fun. I can't wait to do it (next year!). And by the looks of the leaderboard, looks like the field got serious too. There go hopes of podium, but there's always just racing to push...

    I haven't watched the video, but the pedals pictured there definitely don't look like grippy flats.

    I have the Five Ten Freerider model. The size 13 fits nicely (wide enough; I wear a Specialized 48 [in regular width, which is wider than many shoes]). But I probably would not buy then again since...

    I spent a little time riding flats (with pins) recently. I was riding with Five10 shoes. These really grip tight on flats. I probably would have needed to relearn how to bunnyhop logs, but my feet...

    Yeah, hopefully they are still well bled [so there's no air in them] and I won't have any issues with those. On the whole, I would say that if I were going to travel frequently and cared that I be...

    I chickened out and let out the air :-) it wasn't the risk of sealant everywhere as much as the risk it was incurring to my brake hoods (reservoirs), pushing them against the top of case.

    Yeah, I might add a bit of air. I dropped them down to around 20psi (normally 50ish); they are holding on well, but the risk of losing the bead is a real one. On the way home I will definitely let...

    Practice packing. This is actually not how I will pack the bike, but it was an early learning attempt. Cassette side down worked better and I flipped it so that the hydro levers are not pressing...

    Yes, I was gonna say something similar. Definitely sign up for the 14mph; you might find it to be too slow, but then you'll know!

    Aero is a huge factor, though. This AM the HP laps were running...

    I haven't ridden that route on a regular workday, but I've ridden those roads -- at least much of it -- on a not-observed-by-many Federal holiday (Veterans day, I think?) and it was fine.

    That is an awesome looking bike! I have a soft spot for GT being my first adult bike (MTB). I love that they keep their "triple triangle" design on this bike.

    Nice setup! I love the G-One tires....

    Yeah, that was my intent -- only contact being the cleat and then the (carbon) around the clear of course. I will shave off a bit more on the left shoe.
