Turning over the pedals
I got my new bicycle wheels the other day:- Black Velocity Aerohead (28 holes front and rear, offset center rear wheel) - Speedcific hubs (Perception front, Serenity rear) - Front spokes: black DT Swiss Revolution laced 0x - Rear spokes: black Wheelsmith DB14 on left rear laced 1x black DT Swiss Competition on rear drive laced 3x - Nipples: DT Swiss 14 gauge alloy on front and left rear DT Swiss 14 gauge brass on rear drive side - Velocity Veloplugs (instead of rim tape) - Weights: 645g front, 848g rear, 1493g total
These wheels were custom built to withstand my abuse by Mike Garcia. Unfortunately for me the combination of the very cold weather and trying to ready the nursery has left me no time to even take a spin on these yet. Hopefully I'll be able to get out for at least a short ride this weekend.
In other news, I have set a goal for myself in terms of riding this year. Last year I rode about 1200 miles and really wasn't vigilant at all to making time to ride. This year won't be any easier with the baby coming, but I would like to do at least 3000 miles in 2007. To accomplish this, I plan on doing as many group rides as I can including weekday and weekend club rides locally, as well as several century rides in Maryland and Pennsylvania. More to come on the schedule for the longer rides to come soon; some will be charity rides and I'll be looking for sponsors!
