This is my Newest road bike. (I only have one, it is named the “Newest.”)
Carbon fork, nice handlebar, adjustable handlebar stem. The rest is pretty much standard low-end road bike stuff. Now I just have to ride it into the ground.
This bike is almost half the weight of my Schwinn, which I was thinking of using for training.

It snowed a bit on Sunday, so my commute on Monday was in a fair bit of snow.
It seems that I only have time for a weekly bike ride, so I make the most of it. Even if it is raining a little bit. Or if there is still a bunch of snow on the ground. The replaced brakes worked quite well. I guess there just isn’t a whole lot of material to wear through on little bicycle disc brake pads. Latest bike repair is that I replaced the saddle. I used to have a nose-less style sadde, with a tad too much padding. I now have a more traditional saddle, with less padding. (Padding here isn’t necessarily a good thing, since you want your weight to be on your pelvic pretty directly, and not supported by … soft tissue.)
Taken from the road.
I did a longer bike ride today, using the gentler roads going up from home.
In total, about 3.5 hours, almost all of that going uphill.
Me, near the top. I came up the valley between the mountain I am on, and Sugarloaf behind me.
I was biking home when I came across 3 middle school students standing over a crashed bike. The fender had gotten messed up, and they were trying to take it off. The asked me to help them, so I was standing there a little bit trying to talk to them, when I suddenly said “実は。。。”,(Actually,…) pulled out my keys, and unscrewed the fender with my Utili-Key.
(Everyone should have a Utili-Key on their key chain)
