Damn. You're breaking hearts, Mark. At least one. Last night I did hill repeats in the dark in a 29 degree inversion layer. Perfetto it was notto.

Want a picture from the top?

Eric-
The solution to your problem is obvious. You know what to do, don't you!?! BTW, you probably won't sympathize, but I did put on arm warmers for the descent back to town.

Mike-
Dunno... they're 1-year-old DA 10 speed shifters. Is that 7900? (I'm kind of a dunce about equipment...)

Life is so hard sometimes.

No, those are not 7900 shifters. 7900 shifters have a shorter, fatter body, & both brake & der cable get routed under the tape.
And 7900 shifters were but a twinkle in Shimano's eyes last year.

...i thought the cables were buried which would make them the new 7900's. i can see the cable now. i must have missed the cables while i was looking to see if there were any waves on the right hand point below!!!

That's some racy good talk there Meh-wee-uhn!!


Mike-
I'm 50/50 on Blvd/Red Trolley... it'll depend on the weather forecast and the next couple weeks' training. Boulevard RR is pretty fun if the wind isn't howling.

The veiws are awesome. The weather has been so great and the views so spectacular,I have been climbing almost every day. (quite a feat for a fat boy like me) Who knows maybe I will lose 70 lbs and be a real climber like Fannelli.
