I have joined the cult of Rivendell. I got a Baggins handlebar bag, and it’s bad-ass. The Carradice saddlebag is nice for commuting, but it’s overkill for anything else. I think this bag should hold all the stuff I need for my rides and then some. It looks cool too.
I understand that it glows blue in the presence of orcs
I mounted the bag on my Lemond, and it doesn’t interfere with my STI brifters or cabling, but I really bought it for the Trek, which is still in the shop…
My exams are over for now, so hopfully, I’ll get back on track tommorow. I’ll have to try to finish week #1 next week.
As per the plan:
Elapsed Time: 00:25:22
Max Speed: 19.5mph
Average Speed: 14.2mph
Distance: 6.02 miles
I rode 23.86 miles this week. My Trek is still not done!
If anyone can recommend a good bike shop in the general vicinity of Camp Hill, please leave a comment.
lowered the saddle on the Lemond. It made a bigger difference than I thought. It hadn’t occured to me that, since the seat tube is on an angle, moving the seat up and down also moves it forward and back. The b.17 sits higher from the rails than the stock Bontrager saddle, so I was too far up, and too far back. I am hoping that’s all there was to my back (and hand) pain.Elapsed Time: 00:50:50
Max Speed: 22.4mph
Average Speed: 15.1mph
Distance: 12.83 miles
While I rode, I watched more Star Trek, Charlie X this time.
My new bike is still in the shop… when I called to ask about it, they said I should have it back Monday.
