So...just a quickie Junction Run. But I offered my Merckx to a colleague at work to let his brother use when he visits next week... so I rode that bike to make sure it was working well.
I was really surprised at how quiet the ride was. Other than being heavy, the Eddy Merckx has a wonderful ride quality... but if I'm noticing how quiet it is, that must mean my Klein is noisy and I never really noticed that except on bumpy roads where I get some cable buzz. More research needed.
Wildlife Encounter: THREE young deer at the bottom of The Bump.
Finally some nice weather after a rough heat wave. LOTS of riders enjoying The Mountain this morning.
Tarantula Tally: ZERO - first ride since July that I haven't seen one.
Product Review: Clif Bar Carrot Cake flavor. Sounds great but isn't - gets a 2/10 on the DiabloScott Energy Bar rating scale. It doesn't make me gag, but it tastes more like carrot cardboard than cake. Worst flavor they offer.
