Great ride with the old bastards Sunday. I had home field advantage this time. The terrain is super technical. Great time.

Is that, old bastards, or Old Bastards?
I mean do you have off bike meetings, officers, colors?

We throw the occasional campfire.
This was a great ride. There are some features on this trail that I've been working on and a newer loop that some English guy made this summer which is exquisite. Sometimes your brain just melds with the intent of the trail builder and you pace things perfectly, the stream crossings, the split log skinnys, the rock slab drops, the log pyramids... that one loop at the end of a couple hours of riding is just perfect.

Like any hobby or sport it has it's own language too.

No no, it's fascinating and usually kind of describes what happens.

I was watching a skills video last night and found out "casing a jump" comes from moto-cross when your crank case hits the crown of the jump. It hits your chain ring and bottom bracket in the mtb version. Both kinda hurt.

I bet it hurts worse if the shock of impact isn't absorbed by your legs and is instead transmitted through the seat to your crotch.

Peloton CEO: Sales increased after we raised prices to $2,245 per bike

Quote:
“It was interesting psychology that we teased out,” Foley recalls. “In the very, very early days, we charged $1,200 for the Peloton bike for the first couple of months. And what turned out happening is we heard from customers that the bike must be poorly built if you’re charging $1,200 for it. We charged $2,000 dollars for it, and sales increased, because people said, ‘Oh, it must be a quality bike.’”

An average speed of 183.932 miles per hour over a distance of three-and-a-half miles.

And the gear ratio is such that she had to be towed to get up to speed before she started pedaling, in the slipstream of a dragster.

A whole lot of caveats there, but still, 184 mph is pretty impressive for a bicycle, even if she was drafting a dragster.
