2013-10-23 First rides in 3 weeks.

First ride on the Fens. Has a Zeus Cat III CFRP drop bar and 130mm stem. Had to make adjustments to high limit on FD, bolt tension on seat post, and stack height on stem spacers. More wobbly, more vulnerable posture, and almost forgot to unclip a few times. Needed to adjust drop angle, and found my ghetto kick-stand interferes with my heel. I’ll need some other option, but maybe ceiling hooks at home and leaning when out. Bike felt light and fast. Leaning over was fine on my back. My upper arms were complaining a bit. After lunch, my full belly was really complaining with being leaned over. Was nice to pedal around a little, but don’t want to hop back into monster rides just yet.
