Hours and hours of work for a bamboo, titanium, and unidirectional carbon masterpiece that is stiffer and more durable than any carbon bike I have ridden yet weighs a mere 16.2 pounds built up in a 62cm size!

and was just making bamboo bikes?! Well, that is definitely a big chunk of my time, but the riding has been going very well. I sold my SRM because TPC (Time Pro Cycling) is riding SRAM so we are getting some sick SRAM SRMs, but I had been riding "without power" for the whole month of January. It is nice to get on the bike and know that no one is "constantly watching me" but I also really miss having the hard data on how I am doing and what each ride actually accomplished.
Not too shabby, eh?? Notice my speed: I was on a nice consistent climb and that made it easy to really give it everything in a steady manor and squeeze the last juices from my legs. Funny thing is, after a few minutes of soft pedaling and catching my breath, I was fine and continued to do another couple hours at 250 watt tempo with some 350 watt efforts.
