Why should the pros have all the fun? I recently updated my trusty 5200 with some aero-wheels. The wheels look great on the bike and they feel good up above 18 miles per hour. Below that speed, the wheels just feel like regular old wheels. I plan on climbing Old La Honda road this weekend with these wheels on my bike. Will take some pictures at the top near Skyline.

I just decided to throw some cycling shoes on and ride out on my fixed gear with Gabe in tow. Unlike the rest of the crowd in spandex, I had jeans and a t-shirt along with my helmet. It was good to just go out and ride on a weekend. I haven't done that since focusing on my two accounting classes and the whole school thing. I miss riding on the weekends. But more importantly, I realized how my son now will wear his helmet throughout the entire ride (if I ask him beforehand to put it on and keep it on)!

My Langster with the trailer today on Canada road. Pulling a trailer with a fixed gear wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, even with the different gearing.
