2014-02-12 Test Ride Backup Bike

Testing out the Nashbar CX with the drops, travel savers, and squeaky BB.

Need a proper BB tool, as mine likes to slip off. Also, my torque wrench for over 120 inch pounds doesn’t click.

Also need to put a proper seat on this. The big, cushy seat is too slippery. More for jeans. Need something for actual cycling. Probably one of the crummy ones I have, plus a tight fitting gel cover.

Also, the current gearing is WAY too easy on it. I have an 11-32 (34?) on the rear, and a compact double on the front with 39/50. I have a 52 and a 53 chainring for the outer position on this.

Alternatively, moving to a single 44 was a possible plan.

Need to figure out why my HR, cadence, and speed sensors on the backup bike didn’t show up.
