|half of the A group, looks like Justin Bieber on the left.... ;)|
I rode into Liberty a little early and felt like my saddle was too low. I quickly measured and found that according to that measurment, the saddle appeared to have slipped 2 cm. I made the adjustment and headed out with the group. I knew right away that the saddle was now way too high. I could not figure out what was going on. I ended up stopping several times during the ride to lower it a little bit, but could not get it right. Close to the end of the ride, my legs gave out from being overstreched for 2 hours, I crawled back home.
Once I got home I measured again and found that it was still 1 cm high. That's when it dawned on me that my tape measure starts at the tip and the one I borrow has a blank space before the the start, about 2 cm of blank space....
|Where is Kevin Hessler?|
We had several strong riders, new to this group ride, who did not have experience riding in a group/paceline. It was cool to be able to share the skill and practice some. The guys seemed to catch on pretty quick and we were able to pull off a rotating paceline several times.
A couple of folks got separated at different points during the ride. We stopped to wait and even road backwards to look for them. Sorry we lost you, I hope you made it home in time for dinner!
Salsa quick releases. ! And then quite possibly some blue hubs? This is after all, my main adventure bike.
