49.35mi / 79.42km

34.00mi / 54.72km

Avg 15.7 mph, max 42.3 mph, 2:10:17
At last got the new 355 front wheels up and running. The ride is much smoother! I do feel they are heavier but for a commuting tire I think it would be just fine

The am and pm ride is combined. I had to stop way to many times this morning. It made for a pretty slow ride to work. This afternoon was very good though. Felt so good by the time I got to the lake I decided to make a quick loop around, adding an extra 10 miles to the trip. Got stopped again by the police, but the girl laughed so hard when she saw that it is acutaly a bicycle... I made her day.

Was a super ride back home tonight. There was a strong WSW wind, wich normaly on a regular bike would absolutly kill you. The Pterovelo in a cross wind like that acts like a wing and you could feel the aerodinamic force pulling you allong. Even slight uphils then become flat. How amazing is that. I had a smile on my face the whole way home, loving it.

Did a very easy coffee run this morning with the OBS club ride. This evening I pushed it a little harder and tried to keep the spinning high.

2500mile Service Report

The front Kojak's has had enough. Luckily I at last found 355 rims, so the front wheels is getting replaced with the new rims and BigApple tires. The Ultremo R I had on the back is also done. I think it should have lasted longer than that but so be it. The left front brakes is worn down to the bone and is also getting replaced, right is still good.

I used the 39 chainring today. Spin out at about 34mph. I swaped the chain tubes with Teflon tubes and it made the world of difference in drive train noise. Very nice and quite inside now. Went to say hi to Alex at Bike One and he joined me for a lap around the lake. Fun fun fun!

The ride felt faster than what it was. I had a bunch of stops though. Went to the chiropractor, then stopped at the bicycle shop. Saw James in the hospital. Met another trike rider at lake Hefner, Had to stop and pie to many times. Don't know if I drank to much water or not enough. 3.5L

Going home tonight was a little better but still the heart rate does not want to go up. The right wheel is also out of round due to the massive pothole on Tue night. It start to bounce a lot when I go over 30mph.

My body did not want to work this morning. Could not get the legs to move or the heartrate to go up. Every hill was a mountain.

Had a couple of incidences this evening. First the seat pipe broke. Luckily it was close to work so I was able to cycle back to work and replaced the pipe. Set off again and not to long had a flat. Got that fixed and decided I should just stop at Brahms and get something to eat. Set off again and 15min from home I hit a pothole the size of Jupiter!@#$%#$@ Flat again and broke a spoke. Got that fixed and made it home without any further delays. Stepped in the door at 20:30, what a night.

It rained the whole trip. Visibility was not to bad considering the widow was not cleaned and treated for a week.
