Here’s an exposè and first ride on the all new Dura-Ace Di2 Disk Brake setup. Pretty impressive with “intelligent” shifting and integrated power meter. Feast your eyes and dream on. At around $3,000, you better have a pretty good engine to justify the price.
I was looking for a clean way to mount an item on my bike and found this guy. He offers a pretty comprehensive variety of different types of mounts for action cams, computers, lights and other junk we need to mount. Everything is offered in a various colors, materials and finishes. They are a bit pricey and you can’t be in a hurry because they’re made on demand using 3d printers. Turnaround time is about 2 weeks.
Aaron Holmes did a really interesting presentation on his Black Walnet bike last Tuesday, January 10th at the Wooster Library. He started with the concept, research and design process. Then he showed photos of the step-by-step evolution of turning 4/4 boards into a built up, laminated wook frame. He brought along the templates he used to hollow out the insides and someo of the scrap pieces showing the laminations and rough look of the frame before sculpting, sanding and finishing. This was probably the best two hours of the entire winter so far (outside of the holidays). Thanks Aaron for a great evening.
There's a chance of storms on Wednesday so stay posted to this thread for the latest information.
If we ride the planned route, it will take us south and west to Fredericksburg - and apprpriately its title is "Fredericksburg Ramble." It takes us over some of the best hills in south Wayne County. But with the possibilty of storms in the forecast, the plan can change at the last minute.
If the rain stays clear, the forecast is for temperatures in the mid 60swith a steady ESE wind.
Plan to depart 6:15+/- from Orrville Cycling & Fitness if you choose to ride
It's early in the season - take extra care riding in a group so we all get back safely.

I know some may not want to hear this but I'm gonna post it anyway. I used to ride with OCC years ago so I'm not an "anti-cycling" guy. In fact, I love to hear the "whoosh" as riders zoom by my house. However, there are some riders on the club rides that ride in such a way that I can understand why motorists might get upset with cyclists.
Last Wednesday (5/10) I encountered two groups on North Kansas. They were heading south, as was I. These groups were riding 4, 5, and maybe even 6 abreast, stretching 1/2 way or more into the opposite lane, showing no care or concern for other motorists. It was aggravating and I thought multiple times about laying on the horn, but refrained from doing so as I know how much I disliked that when riding. It was as frustrating as encountering Amish walking 4 or 5 across and not moving out of the way of oncoming traffic.
Hopefully the club members don't take this the wrong way and will actually help remind each other to mind their road manners. ... See MoreSee Less
