Middle o' the week
Some Danny Mac love...
Good ride last night. Even the rain was nice. It was SE Asia humid when we rolled out. Little drops started to fall once we crossed I-26. They got bigger, and colder, on the climb up Glenn. The rain started and stopped somewhere around a dozen times over the course of the ride. No matter...it was cooling, and felt good.
I was forced onto the Salsa last night. I'd really forgotten how well that thing does on road rides. The position is dead on, and the 7800 Dura-Ace works every time. 7800 is STILL the gold standard, and I have 7900 on the Ridley.
Anyway, the Salsa acquitted itself well, even with a 48 big ring. The 48 is actually a pretty nice choice for around here, as one can muscle it UP the climbs, yet it's still big enough to build some serious speed when the 12 cog is called upon. Yes, Virginia, you CAN take a 34mph pull in a 48/12!!
That's about it for today...nothing more to see here...move along...
