A Couch Is Not A Throne - July 29, 2022, 5:51 a.m.

You have an uncanny knack for writing what I’m thinking Mike. The number of cyclocross seasons I spent riding myself into shape/oblivion is worryingly high. I went out for a “casual” single speed ride with a buddy this week. Said buddy is nearly 30 years older than me and rode the (uphill) 15km to the woods. He pedalled happily while I hammered myself ragged. The post ride snacks were awesome though :)

Never mind. All cotton. Heavy cotton but still cotton.

I have had some luck riding Ontario spring evenings/fall days with Eddie Bauer “flannel”. The texture suggests that there is SOME wool in them (I’d have to check the label). They’re definitely made off continent but don’t wick half badly and take some abuse.

Tuesday is coming. Did you bring your see through mesh cell phone pocket?

This whole article made me think of my buddy who ran the local shop when I was a teen and still does some freelance building. Firstly because he still had a full XC Pro gruppo in his basement that he’s saving for the right bike. Secondly because of his/my experience with a 2011 Giant TCX Advanced SL. All internally routed and no cable stops. He scavenged parts of old BMX brakes to make his own that would actually fit in the frame. Lovely frame. Idiotic design without the slightest thought of functionality.
