Discussion on bikes, and whatever...

The red pedals are loaners until my new Keos come in. That's the new SRM though. :mrgreen: I didn't bring a rear brake with me on the trip, and that's the "temp" Campy front brake. Note the new stem & saddle position too.

And riding these wheels made me realize how much of a noodle my H3's are. I must get a set of Tune / Edge wheels........

Sounds like a pretty good day, and you defiantly need some of tune/edge wheels :P

By the way, has Shimano every said anything about the whole warrantee situation what with people chopping up their stuff?

Based upon this image I propose a poll.

1) Jeff does not know how to use the redeye feature of his camera.
2) Jeff is too lazy to use the redeye feature of the camera.
3) Same as one and two above except photoshop.
4) Jeff is an albino.
5) Jeff is possessed by a demon.

I would list that Jeff is anal retentive and obsessed but that wouldn't be fair since we all are. :boxing: Personally, I'm going for a split with 4 and 5. :applause:
For my next trick I will set myself on fire!

I love the picture of you riding with no back brake while talking about the climbing you were doing. I just hope there were no ELK, MOOSE, DEER or Dogs that jumped out at you and you had to slam on the brakes. CRAZY MAN.

Juanmoretime- I propose another answer- 6) Jeff is possessed by Dora the Explorer as evidenced by the little green car in the background.

Bman- funny you should mention that- a tri went over that climb and a cyclist actually hit a bear during the race.

Dunlinni- what do you think they are going to say? You voided the warranty on your $100 battery and $200 harness? Not a big deal in my opinion.
-Enjoy the Ride

You may be right. At least he's going the facial fuzz to break up the air flow.

It made me laugh when he was worried about me doing the descent with no rear brake - I have never really used my rear brake much anyways.

Now I need to find the time to finish the other 2 wires....

Do not get made but Gerard is on ST talking about the California project and I asked he about a sub 850g S4 with internal run cabling for Di2 and had to post a picture of your bike on the site. The post is directly to Gerard so I hope this was alright to post the picture. If it is not then I will remove it.

I am overly impressed with this set up and wanted Gerard to see it.

I was thinking more like it shorting or something an messing one of the motors, but I don't really know how it works. Also something like the hole drilling in the frame.
