one hell of a headtube on that mofo

fwiw as I've mentioned this before. my 066 is going on 12-13000km now. i trust that frame as much or more than any other bike I've ridden.

Its a 58cm. Im 6'2" and its got a 110mm stem on it. Took it out for an hour and a half this evening. My back wheel popped out pulling away from a junction. Could have sworn I'd tightened it up. Other than that its been fine. Hit a pot hole coming down a hill and nearly shit myself.

Tom, mine had the proper guide things. So the outer cables but up against the stops in the frame and only the inners go through the frame. They included some guide things that let outers through but obvs didn't use those.

Going to pick up a 105 group set over summer along with some deep drop bars. Thinking the fizik ones.

yeah i mean its not a big deal if you're tall, head tube just looks crazy long thats all. what is it, like 180 or 200mm?

ritchey make some real nice looking classic drops. thats something i really want for my bike too but my options are limited coz I'm all about that narrow bar life. teh fiziks look sweet though.

Oh I know, set up by some numpty on reddit but parts wise it looks decent for a budget build. He was arguing in favour of the bar angle lolz.

I went for a road ride this morning and as I'm riding up to a red light I slow down and get ready to stop. I could swear I had unclipped but apparently I hadn't because as I stopped I slowly fell over like an idiot and couldn't put my foot down.

Staying with a friend in Fiegac now and went for a ride without all my panniers and luggage. Fucking hell I've gotten quick on an unloaded bike. Fucking destroyed hills and all in this hot weather

I live on a coastal plain so the terrain 40 miles in every direction is almost completely flat. It also means that it is almost always pretty windy. Not ideal for road riding. The only climbs around are the bridges that cross the bays and those that connect the barrier islands to the mainland. A few are quite steep. Today was windy as fuck even by our standards and I caught a mean tail wind riding up and, more importantly, down one of the steepest bridges, I was going fast as fuck. I must have hit 60-65mph. It was terrifying. Easily one of the scariest things I've done on a bike. I'm glad I'm rolling on 35s because those roads are not smooth.
