Looking at the Mountain from my office yesterday, it appeared as though someone poured yellow all over the park.
This morning was cool and windy. The last of the Devil Mountain Double riders was off the Mountain by about 8:20.
Saturday Morning Regulars: ThatGuy, Dudley.
Still feeling a few hematocrits low so I got to the Junction and bailed.
Side story - got a flat on my rear sew up on the way home from work last night. I knew the tire was getting old, no surprise and I had my spare... deal with it. I have an old orange tire that I use as the spare so I never forget that I need to put on a good one with new glue.
Nice. Don't forget a little glue on the spare for next time.
Hey wait a minute! No way?!?!?! Another pulled spoke????
Yup, my rear wheel is toast.
This is a Mavic GL330 - bought the wheelset used off eBay about 8 years ago; they haven't made these rims in probably 20 years and they had a reputation for cracking around the eyelets just like this so this wasn't really a surprise either - just that it happened within a couple weeks of my Klein's wheel. Anyway, I put the winter bombproof wheels back on the Merckx - I'll get around to rebuilding this wheel on a new sew up rim later.
