I am sure you enjoyed it going downhill. This frame is a great descender.

Had a mechanical and couldn't bridge back onto the group ride so did some solo climbing (mostly to go down Tuna Canyon).

I don't wear gloves either. I've read that this is somewhat of a new trend :noidea:

Glad to hear you got a nice ride in despite the mechanical.

Chain was skipping on one of the smaller cogs. It was my fault, I swapped wheels and didn't ride around in all gears to make sure. Annoyingly it was the cog that I needed most to do 48k.

I couldn't get the barrel adjusters to move at the HT so I had to jump off to adjust the RD. At the light the group took off full gas again. I hopped back on the bike with them up the road already a hundred meters. I chased at 50k for a couple minutes and then gave up.
