carbon fetish

Saturday was cold but it warmed up pretty quick...did 3.5 hours, mostly tooling around. I tried to ride at the front a lot for exercise and to keep the TSS high. Did a couple of hard efforts.

I rode the new reynolds wheels and they were sweet, but I am coming from a PT Pro hub and open pro rim that has around 15k miles on it. The reynolds were fast, held their speed well and were incredibly stiff...nearly too stiff. I gotta run lower air pressure with these. Now I gotta find a PT hub.

2 riders, exactly the same except wheels (reynolds on one, 32 spoke box rim on the other). The more aero rider will be 14m ahead after 2k. I'm sold.
