You want to do a ride down here in the Southbay? That's fine with me. If we ride down here, I'm happy to put together a parcours.

Let's leave the shop at 8:00 a.m.?

Another great ride...

Finally getting a feel for the bike and starting to build the confidence to start pushing a bit. It's good.

It's a weird perspective... can't tell you're up on a cliff.

It was an awesome ride.

We'll see what happens. Perhaps disc brakes will never catch on for the road? Or maybe the manufacturers will find a way to cover them?

For sure the looks of the discs is going to change. The manufacturers of disc brakes have heretofore given them a very tactical douchebag table saw Ben Hur Annihilator sort of look like this:






I think it's safe to say future discs are going to look as non-threatening as possible.




UCI will test dulled disc brakes in 2017:

UCI Technical Manager Mark Barfield sent a letter to professional road racers on Thursday detailing the governing body’s efforts to begin a safe and effective disc trial, which could happen as early as this coming season. Barfield also requested feedback, inviting athletes to share their thoughts on the new technology.

We'll see what happens.

44 years ago eddy merckx beat the hour record. Ernesto Colnago was at his side! The champion at the end proclaimed that has been "the hardest ride I have ever done".

That's pure.
