i don't think that levi is riding the vuelta this year; i think his main objective for this year is the tour, and he's rabobank's team leader... at least i think that he's not riding la vuelta...

man, i did a solid 80 miles yesterday, and i fucking bonked. dudes at the bike shop were like, "dude you have o bring some cytomax," and was like "fuck a cytomax." but it came back and bit me in the ass. after about 50 miles, 2 bottles of water and two cliff bars, it got harder and harder to turn them over, especially in the heat and the 15-20mph headwind i would be catching for the next 8 miles. i had to stop and get some gatorade to deal with the eloctrolyte issue. i ended up the day finishing strong after taking a ten minute break to eat and sit in the shade, averaging 18mph for the solo mission. not bad. but i ate everything in the house when i got home and felt like i hadn't slept that night.

cipo in philly would be off the ringer. i'd like to see tha dude in the nyc race too- that'd be big time and i'm sure he'd do that up.

logged some nice miles in this weekend. yesterday I got up early (for me) and hit the road. logged about 40 miles in the am. got back just as the heat was really starting to kick in. few hours later, dood I know called and wanted to hit the trails. so, about an hour into this ride I start bonking. that is such an ugly scene. all I could think about was the cliff bar and gummi bears I had forgot at home. lost all flow and sense of picking a line and struggled back to the car. hit the quickie mart and made out with power aid, peanut butter cups and some other crap. ate all that, got home and proceeded to do the same as Tearz and eat everything within sight.

 

Cinnamon...how'd the mountain bike race turn out?

 

that's bad ass tyler got second. its times like these where I really miss OLN. I'll have to get cable hooked up in the new pad before the tour starts.

 

acquired another bike for the squadron. some dood in my neighborhood was throwing out a bike. looks to be about my size. old french bike...Motobecane...with horizontal drops and a bad ass white Selle Italia old school saddle. 170 cranks. not quite sure what I'm gonna do with it yet, but diggin it serious.

uhm

hi

 

just wanted to throw in that i am the proud owner of a decent (i think) bike. newly aquired, used, but a trusty steed. i am used to rolling on my bmx, which i still prize, but goddamn. its nice to have a quality road bike. feels solid. felt incredible to be riding yesterday. nothing like riding in traffic in the city. im rather clueless as to anything on the subject of bicicletas, but the on thing i know was that it felt real fuckin good.

 

peez

My man Dusty pimpin' on his new ride. Alright...

 

Yeah Cinnamon... how did your MTB race go? Do tell.

 

Tearz and Steve... Bonking is the worst when you're with someone who isn't. They feel great and can roll for a few more hours and you're muscles are laughing their asses off at you. "You want us to do what? Man, you better fuel us with some Ho-Ho's, Twinkies or some sweet as juice! Otherwise... we ain't doing shit!" I was out with a friend last Monday on a nice 65 mile ride and I felt really good. Which was amazing considering I haven't been getting in the miles that much. We were on our way back home with about ten miles to go and we were just hammering it at about 25mph taking turns at the front. When I moved to the right to let him roll ahead and do his turn... he never pulled up. I didn't look back I just kept going thinking that the pulling game was over and it was a straight shot back into town. I started to get tired and needed some draft so I looked back to see how he was doing. He wasn't there. The road was fairly flat and you could see for while down the road and he wasn't there. I slowed and kept looking back. Looking back... then way off in the distance... a figure was moving behind the heat waves dancing off the road. He was about a half mile back turning the pedals over really slowly. When he got to where I had eventually stopped to wait for him he said that the beer and pizza from last night just couldn't wait any longer. It had to come out. He didn't eat right the night before and didn't eat right in the morning, or drink enough water on and before the ride. Lost his dinner. Needless to say we took it real slow the rest of the way. Because bonking sucks.

 

I haven't rode since that ride. Yeah... my legs feel icky and my tummy craves bad things. Mmmmmmmm... ice cream.

yeah mountain bike racing is not my thing...well it was a nice 94 degrees outside with very little wind and man when you came out of the woods and into the fields it sucked...i didn't have to pay to race since my club was running the race so i dropped out half way through.. i figured that i wasn't having fun and i didn't want to over due it and ruin this whole week of training...the race was 24 miles i did 12. i wasn't riding bad or anything i was in the middle of the sport catagory..maybe 10th or 12th but i pussied out.

 

but i can't wait for the triathlons

dusty, congrats on the new whip there baby. be careful not to get yourself dead in nyc traffic though. it's a jungle out there. be safe.

did my first real fast group ride in a while today. there are some real asholes that show up for group rides man. there was this one dude dressed in full ibanesto shit with a brand new pinarello prince, and he was such a fucking cock. mad arrogant, always rode like on the center yellow line and never moved over for cars even when everyone else did. i felt good though and extracted my revenge after dropping him on a series of climbs. after moving myself towards the front and around the dudes gasping for breath, i sat on banesto's wheel. naturally he tried to beat everyone up this large hill. he does, i stay with him, long fast descent and all the fast guys catch up again. same thing happens again, another large hill. yet there's a third hill, and my man started to slow down and i pulled up around mr arrogant and shot to the top, and he got dropped for a while by the fast guys. small victories. i realized today that i suck at descending. it's stupid fun, and one of the best things about riding, but compared to the fast cat2 and 3 guys i'm not shit. oh well. it's nice riding in a group of 25 or more people sometimes. certainly made me feel less isolated han when i was riding on saturday, bonking into a head wind in the middle of expansive fields, all alone.

cinnamon, i can't even imagine riding a mountain bike. i used to do it all the time, and i haven't even fucked with mine all year. joker, what's up with you these days? i hate bonking. i'm now sold on cytomax.

haha, ah the beauty of it. enjoy this mr. law, it's one of those rites of passage. just wait to you get your first public unclipping accident. it'll probably be in front of some fly honey who was previously eyeing you until you fall like a doof in front of her. haha, i still do that on the regular. take the leap of faith and just do it mr hollywood. :)

that sucks. what was the course like...hilly, technical, rocky? I was a bmx kid ages ago...I never got the taste of dirt out of my mouth. Even though most of my riding is on the road now, I still love the dirt. The rockier, more technical and steep it is...the more I dig it. Love the hairy shit. I definitely hear ya on the shade of the woods to the overbearing sun in the fields. All I can think of when this happens is go faster....the faster I ride....the faster I can get back to the shade.

Ohh yeah I have 2 bikes...A Fuji Colapsable Bike, and a GT Mach 1. Hell yeah, even though I stopped riding them like 4 years ago. I'll drive, and let my friend ride along side. Yeah Ono, if you're ever in that situation in Va, you have a place to stay at Cinnamons house, or Wheelbites house.

Re: Cytomax, Revenge, Endurox

Whats everyone using as a drink mix? I've heard good things about Cytomax and Revenge. I've got a little bit of the Endurox left. That shit tastes chalky, but seems to do the job.

i drink revenge. when i cant find it though, sometimes its sold out at my shop, i drink cytomax, the ones with herbal lift haha. sounds funny but the stuff works,i recently went out for a ride with just water, and it was so different, i fatigued so much faster, legs burning like i hadnt felt ina long time. revenge is my fuel and recover drink.

i am selling my xc mtn bike. it seems strange to me to be doing so but i am going to take the money and get a cyclocross bike, then i can still ride xc trails and do a bunch of road ridding too. i am looking at getting a kona jake the snake or major snake, fingers crosssed. there are these twilight crits near my house every tuesday night, when i get the kona i am going to start raccing in them, i am looking forward to a change.

Blackham doing the long ride... nice!

 

I drink the Enervit, or however you spell it, and it seems to work pretty good. Every once in a while when I'm feeling shitty I'll suck down one of those Enervit liquid packs. For me, those things are like crack. Gets me going. I have a big ol' tub of that Endurox R4 recovery drink stuff but I used it once and it relaxed my muscles so much that I was like walking jello. So I haven't used it since. Anyone else using that stuff? Had similar problems? I really want to try that Accelerade but I'm waiting till I finish my Enervit tub.

 

Tearz... I've been busy with art lately and not riding too much. Last week I got about 50 miles and this week I've got none so far. When I finish this artwork I'll be back out there but only till the 22nd. Then I'm off to Europe for a few weeks. And no... not taking the bike. But I hear Jan Ullrich has a shop in Hamburg where he sells Ullrich frame and forks. Hmmmm... it's got me curious. I did do a little shopping the other day and picked me up a team Fakta jersey. So nice. I love the black deals. I have one of those team Kostrizer jerseys too and I love rockin' that. I'm hoping to find some good stuff in Europe.

 

Mr. Law... Just do it and you'll be clickin' in and out like a pro in a few days. Work with 'em on the weekends till you get it down pretty good. What kind did you get? Shoes and pedals...

dang homie, still so bitter,haha. no i just think a cross bike will be more versitile, i could still ride trails with it but do road rides too, ever since i had to give back that zurich to my old employer its been killing me not being able to do road rides.

i am also considering a gunnar crosshairs, alil nore $$$$ to get the same type of spec as the kona's, but still a killer bike in my opinion. got get the gary fisher sold first though.

hell yeah heshy, get that bike. see i am really torn between cross bike and nice road bike, i think the cross bike is more practical for me at this time, but i keep seein these beuatiful road bikes and well, sh#$ you know how it is, only so much money. plus a cross bike is cheaper for some reason than a road bike, and when i sell my gary fisher mtn bike, i get the cross bike and with the extra money i can pay off my debt on the ac1 freeridebike i bought. gotta balance.

 

steve try the revenge, i swear by it, do the orange flavor over the mango.

i say get a decent cross bike, spend the loot on an extra set of wheels and then have a set for either off or on-road..im not sure if the brakes will be a problem, but your a smart fellow, you figure it out! HAAHA!

Yeah, I agree. If you can only have one...get the cross bike. Its a helluva lot more versatile. About the only problem with brakes that I could foresee would be different rim thickness, so you might have to adjust them a bit. I have a few different wheelsets I switch out and the difference is pretty minimal. Just adjust the barrel a bit and go.

 

orange revenge it is...

 

I don't suppose anyone has some mustache bars just laying around they wanna get rid of?
