Here's a (not so clear) photo of the receiver that broke off of my Reynolds rim. It was probably damaged when I broke a spoke a few weeks back. These rims take a 42 mm valve stem, but was thinking I may go to a 60 mm instead, and bypass the receiver altogether! Has anyone experienced the same problem?
I'm hoping Reynolds can send me a new receiver so I don't have to ship the wheel away. 😬

I missed writing everything up a couple of weeks ago and it's totally gone from my mind at this point. I know I did an FTP test and my FTP was slightly lower but so is my weight so I stayed exactly the same in terms of watts/kg. I was hoping for an increase but oh well. Could be I was sick and my knee is a bit off. Doesn't make much difference really though.

This last week I was on holiday in Los Angeles with my wife and boy. It's where we used to live so it's hardly a foreign land. I put out a message to see if I could borrow a bike from someone and sure enough someone came through for me. I brought the Wahoo Elemnt computer I'm currently testing as well as my pedals and I had dreams of borrowing carbon goodness. As it turns out what I was leant was totally useable, and in perfect shape, but not high end at all. I actually really appreciated the opportunity to compare and contrast a bit. It was a Specialized aleze with Ultegra 2x9 and microshift levers. The wheels were no name and heavy. It was a heavy package, probably in the range of 23lbs, but wasn't terrible to use at all. I did a couple of rides with it. The main was 64 miles and 5500 ft of elevation. I had planned out two main possible rides. Both had lots of climbing but one was a long steady climb up a mountain and the other, the one I did, was more like home with about the same amount of climbing but more ups and downs with short steep stuff. I felt like a heavy bike with a standard crank and 11-25 cassette would be a bit miserable to climb with for 40 miles! The ride I did do was really amazing. I went up to the Griffith Observatory and up to the Hollywood sign plus lots of ups and down in random neighborhoods around the city. I had a great time. The only thing I didn't like about the bike was the breaking with the microshift levers. Ultimately there was plenty of power but the pivot points on the levers suck and you've really got to get down on the drops to have any power. I also ended up having a short bit of time the next day to ride with someone I'd never met. He was a great guy but showed up late after having an argument with his wife about the ride then ended up being much slower than me. We had great conversation once I figured out his speed but in the beginning I dropped him a bunch of times and at one point he threw up a bit because he was pushing so hard to keep up. I did get the speed right after not too long though and we had a nice time riding then he headed home and I did a bit of climbing. All in all a really great vacation.

I didn't specifically set out looking for closed roads but much of the climbs were roads that I guess weren't being maintained anymore and so weren't in great shape but were closed to cars. The bit up to the hollywood sign was behind a very elaborate gate.

The challenge is completed

Today I want to reach the minimum goal
in the Strava Mt . Everest challenge.
So ride just for the rest and i got it.
9029 m in May and 3 days to go.

But now it's enough.
Next week there is the 3rd round in the
Cycletec TT series and i need points.
Now it's time to come down and relax a bit.

See you

Oh man...

When I came home from work it startet to rain.
I hate riding in the rain.
So I decided to make some firewood.
After a while the sky cleared up and the sun
comes out and the temperature climbs.

To ride a little round is the better idea.
After that I have a 65 m rest from my
Mt . Everest challenge...
I complete it tomorrow.

Work, rain, making firewood, sunshine, and than train outside. I think I'm a little bit crazy
