Darn you fellows back in the Old World. You make me really, really miss it!

Beautiful pictures, by the way.

Training wheels?

I race on these bad boys. H+ Son on Royce hubs. 28 front, 32 rear. Sensational wheels.


And CulBaire, sounds like it's time for A grade ;) getting close to my times.

Ha! A few more races in B Grade still to come, a bit more road racing experience is needed before I go there!
I'm hoping to be hanging onto the back of A grade by the end of the year. :thumbup:

Set out to do a quick ride... then remembered the Gran Fondo challenge on Strava. So yeah, 135 km ride.
Blazing sun and 32 C was no good, even worse as I had only one bottle.

The beach at the Black Sea shore.

The road along the Bosphorus(this is near the north end, near Sariyer). Only one lane each way, cars maneuvering for parking or making U-turns frequently block the road.

Who designed that road? Pinarello?
Is Pinarello going to redesign this road now? Less squiggly --> more aerodynamic, less road mass. Nanoparticles in road surface, etc.

Sound like it. But I thought all you lightweight whippersnappers raced on lightweight low-spoke count fancy wheels?

Sorry forgot to mention that. It is the "Going-to-the-Sun" Road in Glacier National Park, Montana.

32 mile ride with 3,300 feet elevation gain with most of the climbing taking place in the last 10 miles with an average gradient of 5.7% during those 10 miles.

Supposed to be a beautiful ride in person.

53x12, that first shot is breath taking, it sort of feels 3D to me.
