Flat rear tire…not ideally the way I wanted to start my Friday morning off, but at least it happened before I even started riding.  The sinking feeling of defeat hit me as I looked at the bike – but then I realized that I could run the CAAD5 rear wheel.  It was more or less the same setup, just a tighter cassette ratio.  I usually pack it as a spare for races, just in case, and ride on it through the city, so it could definitely take a beating.  I threw it on the bike and left the house.

I seemed to have forgotten how much harder running is than riding.  Well, maybe not harder, but definitely a different kind of work out.  It’s been great actually taking a lunch break during the day, but unfortunately, it’s affected the frequency of my riding mostly because I’ve just been way too tired.  I’m hoping after this week the learning curve flattens out, and I can start recovering faster, which means riding early mornings again.  Either way, today was stellar.  Misty, damp bridge, barely anyone out, it was amazing.  As I rode around Paradise, a Divine Electric rider caught up to me, and we started chatting.  Or, I should say, he was talking with a thick German accent, and I was nodding my head, pretending to know what he was saying.  After a minute or so, I pieced together what he was saying: Divine Electric had a group ride called the “Chicken Run” that started at the end of the road, in Tiburon.  They leave at 7:30am every Friday and jam on Paradise drive.  I’ve seen them out, it looks like they carry a pretty quick pace – I’m guessing a lot of them race, too.  I wanted to tell the guy that I had to head back to the city, but he was gone by time the intersection came.

And then on my way back, I saw this giant balloon purse.  Sick.

Wilier 101 SR.

Looks like Wilier has a new pro team bike for Lampre-ISD.  The 101 SR.  Expect more photos once the Tour de France starts, for sure.

The word is out.  The single-speed cyclocross frameset the MASHSF riders were racing last season is going to be out for production soon.  I foresee more people racing SSCX this season.
