Here are the times for road closures. No cars on the roads. Just curious though if there will be cops on some of the cross streets on the route. haha.

just got home from a 40k cruise with a buddy through Richmond and iona. Not sure what it is about night riding but the feeling is almost serene! Started at 1015 ish and took our time... Made a stop at McDonald's post ride to reclaim those calories well earned haha

I love going on night rides! Streets aren't as full, it's a lot more quiet, and you get that cool breeze

I just got in from my nightly commute. It's still a little chilly for short sleeves but I do shorts no problem. Usually see coyotes and racoons rummaging around at this hour.

I'd totally be down to join you for a ride if I wasn't actually running in the race!
As for that other Blossum ride, it's the usual Critical Mass-holes. Bring your cruiser bike, and don't wear your kit.

Is there a story behind this? I've always been curious about these Critical Mass events but in no way or form interested in participating.

From what I've seen, the Critical Mass'ers are more interested in making a spectacle of themselves and causing havoc for drivers, and not so much interested in riding itself.

I really don't wish to be present when something like this happens:

Come on, how much modulation/power do you really need? I have cheap brakes on my road bike, and the amount of leverage the large wheels provide is plenty to stop the bike in any situation. I don't see too many road bikers doing stoppies anyhow, even though the standard rim brake is totally capable I take this all back, if someone the hydraulic system is somehow many many grams lighter then your average rim brake. My own opinion of course

I think maybe it's what the market wants?

Almost every other person I meet who wants a bike (usually their first) says "I want something with disc brakes." I don't believe in it though.

No question about the performance and improvement offered up by disc brakes for MTB's and cyclocross bikes, anything with excesive mud/water/grime exposure. For road bikes, I don't see it happening because of increased weight and complexity, though it is nice to never have to worry about wearing rims out. Even hydro rim brakes are overkill IMO, there's such a small contact patch between tire and road, braking power is rarely the limiting factor for road bikes. Although in the mid 90's I also used to think that disc brakes for MTB's wouldn't pan out either because their were so heavy and unreliable back then.

Hopefully SRAM can get their QC hammered down. Their MTB hydraulic systems have developed a pretty bad rep the last few years for poor reliability and finicky to maintain.

I used to think that electronic shifting was gimmicky too. But its stuck around a few years, gained traction, been refined to the point where it's now pimp status

Just finished another bike. Like the other Kona, got this frame off eBay last summer and have been slowly building it up. Mash-up of Shimano parts.



The parts list:
Frame: 2006 Kona Zing Supreme (Aluminum/Carbon made by Dedacciai) 52cm
Handlebars/Stem: Cinelli Neo / Ritchey WCS
Fork/Headset: Kona Carbon / FSA Orbit integrated
Front Wheel/Tire: Shimano WH-RS10 with Schwalbe Stelvio 700x23
Rear Wheel/Tire: Shiamano WH-RS10 with Schwalbe Stelvio 700x23
Crankset/Bottom Bracket: Shimano Ultegra 6700 / Ultegra
Saddle/Seat Post: Prologo Scratch Pro Ti / Ritchey WCS Carbon
Pedals/Chain: Shimano 105 / SRAM PC-1071
Shifters/Derailleurs: Shimano Dura-Ace 7800 / Shimano Dura-Ace 7800
Cassette: Shimano Ultegra CS-6700
Brakes: Shimano Ultegra 6800
Misc: Stella Azure tap, Bontrager carbon bottle cages, Gore cables, Jagwire inline adjusters, Campagnolo seat post clamp

Wheels and tires could probably be better, but good enough for training as-is. I'll probably end up using this bike for the Gran Fondo. Haven't really put it through it's paces yet, just around the block a couple times and it felt pretty smooth. Looking forward to more rides on it!

azncreationz - Beautiful bike!

Alphamale - Your saddle bag looks radioactive!

Went for a casual stroll along the seawall at False Creek, over the Burrard Bridge and through Yaletown. Soooooo smoooooooth.

What bike lube are you guys using? I think the one I'm using isn't staying on that well or penetrating enough.

I'm using one called purple extreme. Doesn't feel thick, stays on the chain nicely and as long as u wipe off the excess well it won't throw it all over the frame

I wish the bottle had a long applicator tip tho

Question for you guys

I was about to pull the trigger on a Fizik Antares Braided Rail seat, but it turns out my seat post has a Lateral clamp instead of vertical (braided rail = 7x9, mine can only fit 7x7).

Any aluminum seatpost's with vertical clamping you guys would recommend? ~20-25mm set back. Not looking to break the bank cuz the seats already crushing the wallet lol
