Tossing and Tortured 'Till Dawn

I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide.

Monday, February 22, 2010

Everyone who's ever even THOUGHT about riding a bike in the PacNW was out this beautiful weekend.

Yours truly was no exception.

I remember the days of five-hour rides, every weekend -- those are long past, now that there's eighteen-plus hours of bike commuting during the week! So, instead, we get to tear around the short, steep hills of Tacoma, the cobbles and the bricks.

    Looks just like Saturday's ride here, except for the lack of ice, snow, salt and potholes.

    Is that a 2009 Team?

    Yes it is... I like it. It startles me every time I jump on it, though, since I am on my steel, longer-wheelbase, slacker-angled Clubman the whole week.

    Holy steering batman!

    Of course, any carbon race bike would probably feel the same...

    I have a "Team SL" which I think might have been a prototype for the 2010. Raleigh sent it as a warranty replacement. The frame looks like the 2009 Team, but it's black, white and red, has a tapered steering tube and the BB30 bottom bracket.

    It's mighty nice, though, whatever it is.

    I know those cobbles.
