I rode in this morning. The new chainrings seem to work very nicely.
I don’t have the computer hooked up yet (maybe tonight), so it was about 6 miles, all of which count toward Jihad.
I tried yet another route home. There was part of the road that was so steep, I started doing wheelies. One of my cleats disengaged (explosively) and I almost wrecked.
So, I guess I either need to lower the handlebars, or I need to stand to climb. Either way, it sucks. I think I might just get off and push from now on 🙂
