*WOW! The new road bike is about 5mph faster than my old mountain bike. I knew it would be better, but I didn't expect the difference to be that dramatic!
*I have not perfected the route yet, and took some wrong turns that wasted time and threw my numbers off. Next Saturday I'll do it again, and have accurate numbers.
*I bought a new odometer that also measures temperature and average speed.
*Decommissioned my old FOX Mojave gloves. The pads have gone flat after 10 years.
*I'm still using the clipped pedals that came with the new bike. The old spd pedals are still on the old bike. I'm hoping for a significant performance increase when I ride with those pedals. The old bike may still be in the shop until Wednesday, though I may pay them a visit today to adjust the front sprocket and pick up those pedals. Or I could take a giant nap. =)
