Haha, I like this.

Although, my buddy just picked up a set of those Chinese Carbon wheelsets, and he picked up on average 1-2km/h from whatever came on his Trek Madone 2.1. Granted his average is around 31km/h so I'm assuming there is a bigger aerodynamic advantage the faster you are. Meanwhile, I was getting beatin' up by the wind on my first trip out to Iona today lol.

Wow, 30km/h average? That's pretty gangster. I can only DREAM of going at that speed.

To be honest, commuting/riding my steel Cinelli so far has the best returns and gains. It's heavy as fuck so you're forced to just ride and push yourself. And then I get onto the Guru or Cannondale and it's just like -

Average speed up by 3 - 5km/h.

Speaking of legs...

Did you receive your order of bib shorts and jerseys from ProBikeKit? Alphamale and I received both. The jerseys fit, but a tad form fitting from what we're used to.

The bib shorts however - weird as fuck. The chamois doesn't extend as far back, and doesn't even reach our sit bones. So we were wondering if you've received and tried them on yet. We'll be returning the bib shorts. They're just TOO weird fitting.

Good to hear about the chamois on the bib shorts, I was about to order them. Really good price but I'd the gear doesn't fit well then it's not worth it

Yeah, don't do it. Unless you are tall and lanky like Brad Wiggins, pass on it. Not worth the hassle. Even my counterfeit, sweat shop Made in China knock-off Rapha kit is 10x better than this.

Ա - ԣϲ (Chinese site)

Search "Rapha." It's the kit with the stripes. Seriously, guys, laugh all you want, but the chamois is fucking insane.

Insane good or bad?

Just wondering. Are these prices in CAD funds? Do they ship internationally?

Insane good. The fit and overall finish isn't Rapha quality but it was like $40 for the full kit. You read correct - $40!

I think it's Chinese RMB. I would NOT recommend buying from them. I was lucky and a friend was living in China at the time so he got it for me.

I would NOT trust them to ship stuff to Canada. LOL!

You can get cycling backpacks with mesh that suspends the bag off your back. Still get sweat on the straps. But better than a dripping back.

Backpacks - Deuter Sport GmbH & Co. KG

or
I picked up one by this company - detours. They don't seem to sell them anymore. Here is a similar model

Sorry if this will be a long post.

Went out and did Stanley Park (Prospect Point Hill) repeats, as it was hella nice outside. Often, I would be around 4 minute mark and struggled to break into high 3 minute mark.

Last Thursday, decided to attack (out of saddle) just after the first curve. The rest of the way got back on the saddle, tried to stay relax and kept my hands on the tops. The next curve, out of saddle for as long as I can.
Clocked in at 3:36 as per Strava.

Today, tried Will (604cefiro)'s tips. Attacked the moment I got into first curve and held it as long as I can. Back on the saddle, hands on the tops (tried to stay relax) and attacked a bit again after the second curve as long as possible. Finally, till the top as I was panting .
PR at 3:18 as per Strava

went for a few laps of stanley park as well, couldnt improve on my time of 4:32. did it exactly the same as last time according to strava.

does it just happen to me but some stats are way off from garmin n strava, for ex, top speed on garmin is like 54 but strava shows 60+.

Tough to say but get your fitting done and then go for another ride and see how it goes. Remember what works/doesn't work now, then keep that in mind after your fitting, then take the details back to John for a follow up.

Edit: I will quote Alphamale again.

My edge 500 froze up on me tonight. Did some searching and managed to reboot it by Press and hold MENU / POWER / RESET

All is well now.
