Training has been super awesome the past few days, with all the rain, wind, and snow we got here in Madtown. Monday the snow was too deep to navigate, so I plundered on the TT bike on the rollers for a while.
Tuesday it warmed up quite nicely and the roads became rideable, so I busted out the Slingshot DDX Cross'er for some hours in the saddle! Complete with rain pants and all, I tackled the New Glarus loop in no time flat.
Thanks to Josh Carter's wife, Julie, I'm trying out a new wobblenaught-like fit. My saddle is jammed all the way forward instead of all the way back on the rails...and, *gasp!*, I have my saddle pointed DOWN a degree or two! It feels really weird, but very smooth on the pedals. I keep thinking that I look like one of them Spaniard racers in the Tour, with a super smooth, fast pedaling style, all toes down a such.
Scratch the downward seat angle though, that baby is back to being tilted a degree or two up like she's supposed to be. Try it, you'll love it. I swear I'll never run my saddle nose down again.
I leave you with this--What I felt like saying to my first calc teacher:
Now I'm done with calc class for good, whatdaya say to that, x?
