Your Trusty Steed: Post - What you are riding on CO 2007?

Postby Force 5 Robert » Wed Mar 14, 2007 10:06 pm

I did this on the old forum - so what the heck. :) Lets hear what you all are riding on CO 2007. What is your choice of steed for a week of riding bliss? Even better, post a picture of your ride!

For me: I will be soaking it up on my Rans Force 5 XP highracer. A week on these wheels will be about as comfortable as it gets! :)

As the user name suggests, I will be riding an Independent Fabrication Steel Crown Jewel SE (pre-carbon stays). Solid starlight purple (including the fork), white logo panels with pinstripes, yellow and white crown logos, all set off against a pair of traditionally-laced red CXP-33s upon which are mounted yellow-striped tires. I will probably put fresh yellow bar tape on in Sisters. Bling!

If you really want to pimp your ride out and show some real bling, skip the handel bar tape and add an Ibike to your ride. :lol:

I'm riding a Schwin with handlebar tassles in gold and silver. An ((aaooga)) bell, whoopie cushion for padding and a double beer can holder helmet.

I'll be riding my Specialized Roubaix (the definition of comfort), only this year with a mountain cassette added so I can ride up all the hills instead of walking part of the time like I did last year.
The voices tell the stories. I just record them for posterity.

And the voices have some good ideas sometimes!

I am going to remember this and will be counting on seeing it.

Did I mention that this thread is binding?

I'll be riding my Cannondale Synapse Carbon, that should do the trick!
Clip in and let's go!

My ride for 2007

Postby peteriehl » Tue Apr 10, 2007 8:11 pm

I will be on my new Longbikes Slipstream. It's a long wheelbase recumbent. The best bike I have ever ridden. I've got an 84 Trek racing 970 with full Campy set up for sale as a result of this new bike. Hope to meet many new friends and have a great week with 2000 other bike nuts.

Regarding the ibike...I was curious about the set up. I was reading the instructions to set it up ...it seemed a bit complicated....but doable...what was your experience.?

secondly, the memory seems weak, If I used it on CO w/o ability to down load I think I might run out of memory....

Thoughts?

Set up is not very difficult and you only have to do it once. Basicly you install the ibike, hit the set up button, the ibike says hold the bike straight, then you turn it 180 degrees placing the tires in the same basic place. Then you ride down a fairly flat road with the ibike telling you to speed up or coast. It will take you about 20 min the first time but after that you will be able to recalibrate in just 5 min. I have not needed to recalibrate but I have done it a few times just to see if I had done it right the first time.

If you set the ibike up to record every 5 seconds you will have all the memory you need for CO. I find that the 5 second mode is good enough for anything except hi intensity 30 min work outs or if you want to record a 30 min cryterium.
