I’m reading  a book by Matt Ridley that is “the autobiography of a species in 23 chapters”.  The retelling of our chromosomes and history.  I recommend this book to anyone that is not well versed but interested in genetics.

Hopefully this week, my new Ridley Noah will arrive, all 15lbs!  Carbon fiber Aero frame, Dura Ace gruppo with a compact crank, Reynolds 45 mm rim wheels, CF bars, 3T stems, Speedplay pedals, Fizik saddle & Cenelli ‘Zebra’ Cork tape.  Can you visualize it?  I have no picture but will post it real soon, maybe next week it will be all built up!  Ha.

I started my time from the green light at 6th Avenue and 19th Street, stared at my watch (11:30), sprinted up to the towers, made it up to Windy Gap at about 17 minutes and then increased rpm and speed to the top which clocked at 12:06p.  The gusts of wind at times made it a little more difficult but it wasn’t too promlematical.  I need to use a heart monitor next time because I was not overburdened; however,  my legs complained some from the higher gears.  Knees were ok so I will continue to try and increase the speed as times go on.  Again, I was not in the lowest gear on a 12-27, 39-53!!  Well, second to the lowest.

It came with the Dura Ace 7800 crank, I am wondering if I should get a compact crank set.  My stock one is 12-27 and 53-39.  I am traveling at the edge of my ability but feel I can get the strength needed during the year.  I have tried Lookout without too much trouble with a gear or two to spare at times; however, want to go do Mt. Evans.  Any suggs, or can someone comment on the difficulty using this set up?
