    17753.3 + 16.7 = 17,770

    I had a nice 50+ mile ride planned, but a broken spoke and wobbly front wheel derailed it about the 8 mile mark. I limped home!!

    17,700 + 24.3 + 25.5 + 28.6 = 17,778.4

    100 hour work week kept me from riding or posting this week. 3 day weekend means 3 riding days ahead!

    17,785.7 + 48.9 = 17834.6

    Somehow I shorted myself 1.1 miles as I had a 50 mile route mapped out.

    17, 834.6 + 13.8 + 18.4 = 17,866.8

    Another broken spoke. That makes 3 broken spokes on the same wheel in <500 miles. What am I doing wrong?

    Wheels aren't usually designed for Clydes. I run mine into the ground after ~2000 mi. I had my guy at the LBS build me a new one, we'll see how long that one lasts.

    18,075.1 + 9.9 = 18,085

    A quick ten mile spin before dinner.

    18,085 + 120 (road) + 10 (trainer) = 18,215

    18,215 + 23.4 = 18,238.4

    Took forever to get my wheel back after my last broken spoke! Guy at the LBS was trying to figure out why I'm breaking so many; when I told him I'm a 240 lbs Clyde, he just said "oh.. that makes sense.."

    18,238.4 + 22.4 = 18,260.8

    I suggest we should add 5 miles onto every 20 miles we ride if it is in 20mph or greater winds! That was some work!!

    Hey all; I know it's been awhile but I haven't stopped riding! I looked at my last post from June and added up my mileage since then from my Bike Brain iPhone app. There is more miles undocumented but this is the sum of the numbers from the history to date.

    18,260.8 + 369.33= 18,630.13

    18,630.13 + 25.9 = 18,629

    First ride on a road bike, aside from my test ride. LBS called to let me know my road bike was in and ready to ride. Maiden voyage today on my new Scott CR1 with SRAM Rival. FUN!!!

    Correction to post # 575 by Dad-2-3 (18630.13 + 25.9 = 18,656.03, not 18,629)
    18,656.03 + 26.22 = 18,682.25
    First ride in two weeks. Back problems, cold and flu. Not a good month so far.

    Well I'm not sure how I screwed that pooch, but thanks for fixing my screw up!


    18,682.25 + 25.7 = 18,707.95

    Hopefully I didn't mess that up!/img/vbsmilies/smilies/redface.gif

    No problem Dad-2-3, I screwed up a post two months ago and haven't a clue why.
