I still have not sorted out my TT bikes. I’ve got the Lucero but without the SRM and a seat, riding that bike looks a bit sketchy. I’ve got the Specialized Transition with half a back brake zip tied to the downtube. Riding that bike seems a tad dangerous if I need to stop. Me thinks I’m going to have to pull the SRM out of the Transition and re-install it in the Lucero at this point and swap the seat. Of course I’ve still got 7 days before the race so plenty of time to sort it out….sort of. Although it would be nice to ride one of them this year before the race. At least to make sure they shift while going uphill.
I race the Trisports.com Desert Classic Duathlon next Sunday. Should be a good season opening hitout, hopefully. My power data says my riding isn’t too shabby right now. The big concern is since Thanksgiving week, I’ve been averaging only about 43 mile per week of running. This time last year I running on average 57mpw, with a higher frequency as well. That’s a fair bit of running. But since I’ve been riding quite a bit more then last year at this point, my thinking is, if I give anytime back on the runs I should more then make up for in on the bike leg. It’s just a thought. We all know thinking is dangerous.
Here is a pic of the Lucero in it’s current state and two of the specialized. Note half the brake zip tied to the cage.
