Zwift … First look

I received a great email today.  Welcome to Zwift beta!

As soon as I got home for work I installed the software and set up my bike sensors. This was painless.

Then I set up my avatar and started riding.  It was a rest day so I said to myself I’ll just tool around for a while.

Ha That didn’t happen.

No less than two minuets in I was going for a KOM!  I can see this as a great way of beating the winter blues on the trainer.  I will report back when I have more time in the saddle with Zwift.

So much for a rest day.

Cinelli Gel Bar Tape

An update to the post. After living with this tape for about 2000 miles. I still like it. It is holding up well. I think I will replace it in the spring just to make the bike look pristine again. Other than te white getting dirty it is still in great condition.

Quick review on the new bar tape I installed today.  My only comparision is to the original tape that was on my bike so I son’t have much to compare to.

I purchased the tape and had my LBS show me how to install it.  It worked out great.  The tape was very stretchy so it was easy to wrap.  The back of the tape has an adhesive strip and it also included a ribbon for each brake housing, finishing tape and end plugs.  The tape feels nice and cushy and I think it will absorb the road vibration with no problem.  Today I only tried it out on the trainer and it was very comfortable.  I’ll update after I get some long rides on the tape.

Yakima Sprocket Rocket

After living with the Sprocket Rocket for about 6 months I can recommend it. It is super fast to mount on the load bars and quick to get your bike on. My only complaint is the skewer will spin if your bike isn’t in the rack unless you screw it all the way in which will make it take longer to put your bike in. It is just a pet peeve and don’t effect anything or you can’t tell the skewer is rattling when driving.
