Light and Aero

202's with Vittoria Open Pave CG Tubular, Sram Red 11-26
Reynolds Strike 66mm with Michelin Pro3 Grips, Sram Red 11-26

Getting crowded in here. Spring is the season of new bikes around here.

Tubular Gluing Tip

After countless times of getting glue all over the rim I decided to try something new. Last fall I used the masking tape method when I aquasealed my cross tubulars. I thought I might try it out for gluing my road tubies too. It works great. Only really adds 5min to a glue job and its really makes everything much cleaner.

Staying Organized

I have been cycling competitively now for 10 years. I am constantly buying and selling bike parts. Just recently I have realized that I need to keep all my crap a little bit more organized. I spent some time looking around Lowes and have come up with some great solutions.

Got these bins that help me organize everything in them from tires, bars, stems, brakes, headsets, saddles, etc.

I found these great boxes to organize all my little odds and ends.

Sorry for the upside down pictures. Can't figure out how to change them.

Sneak Peak at Pam's new wip.

Will be busting these out at Hillsburo in a few months.

Team stuff.

Things are starting to roll in. Of course all the bikes came in but mine does not. I gotta wait until Wednesday. Pam is taking all my SRAM Force off my Supersix (which I sold) but we I can't build hers until my frame comes in because I need a bike to ride. I also need a new front der. for her new Specialized because of the small tubes (31.8). Frames look sweet and I can't to build mine up later this week. I will post pics of my bike and Pam's when I am all finished. Hey I got some sweet shoes though.

Our apartment is looking even more like a bike shop, with 17 bikes, 6 frames, and god knows how many wheels. Its that season. New team bikes and Little 500 stuff makes for one bike filled apartment. Some of the team is coming down this weekend for a little training camp which should be fun. Spent all class today reading the live updates of Tour of Cali on my iphone. Wow I really am a bike dork.

60's in February

Today was my day off but I could not resist. How often is it mid 60's in February. Last week we had lows in the negative digits now its heaven outside. I ventured out for a great 2 hour recovery spin. I forgot what warmth feels like.

Not the best at taking pictures when I am riding, but I am getting better.
New Bikes this week!!!

My blogging has gotten slow since cross is over. Life is simple right now. Ride, School, relax with friends. Weather is crappy once again today with more snow. Looks like more inside riding. However last weekend I got 2 great rides in. Temperatures crested 45 degrees this weekend. It was quite pleasant except there was a foot of snow on the ground so the roads were soaked. Made for wet and dirty group rides, even with fenders.

I am finally getting the road itch going. I have all my stuff for my race bike now. All I can do now is wait for my frame.
I have also picked up a couple new cool bike toys. Check this stuff out:

Sticky Pro3 Grips, loved the Pro2 Grips can't wait to try the 3's

Got my Roubaix tires for Hillsburo.

Racing Rep. Regal.

Just booked my flight to Florida for spring break. I can't wait to get some flat, fast, and warm training in down there with Luca. Stay tuned for more team updates as they come. First race is in 25 days!!
