    Very neat. Here's mine, again. I haven't really ridden my road bike much in a while.

    Yup, No. 9. The good thing is they come in Road lengths(367AC) and 2 different offsets, 43mm and 49mm.

    Tue will be the first ride for the Lobster since Roubaix..... Yep it has been a while. I will ride it for the first time with the LW and that should be a pretty snappy combo.

    Lionel,

    You took this pic after you changed the bearings? You can just about see the misalignment......
    I may have done that once or twice.

    Hey Lionel - your cranks are not lined up correctly! Be careful on Tuesday!
    Auk's words to live by:
    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    Meant to post this last week but Flickr was acting up on me. It finally went through.

    Dude - I hated riding those trails on a Specialized Epic FS. I couldn't imagine those roots on road tires and a "road" bike.

    Those trails look perfect for a road bike!

    That's very tame for those trails. Most of them have those 2" tall roots snaking all over the path. I've busted my knees on those things so many times. Maybe I'm remembering it worse than what it was. I'm planning on taking my fat tire road bike there soon though to give it a shot again.

    The gravel surrounding the park was perfect. That trail started to really suck around the next turn. When I get back from Boston I'm heading out to a different park that my Cat 1 mountain biker teammate tells me is smooth and fast with a couple jumps. Perfect for a road bike.

    If I ever get a mountain bike again, here's what I plan on doing...I'm going to one of the builders who made me a road bike and I'll ask them to build me a mountain bike fit for a non-mountain biking roadie that feels like a mountain version of the road bike I already have. The only hard part will be choosing which builder.
