Latest and greatest isn't always sweeter..

I did a awesome ride with Mike Hanseen yesterday. Absolutely great weather. Wore shorts with jersey and arm warmers, on November 1st! This week looks to be insane weather so get out in it! mid 60's! I am on a sweet 1986 Schwinn Madison fixie that I got from Mike. I don't have a road bike so I ride this, even though I could ride the TT bike but I need to work on cadence. On our ride yesterday we were heading down some pretty steep hills and my cadence would hit 175 rpms, felt like my knees were going to explode. I thought I was going to get bucked off. The whole time I was just thinking don't try to coast or you will. We were making our way up this hill heading towards the mouth of Emigration to turn and go through the U and this guy came by and said sweet bike, I thought it was towards mike cause he's got the greatest and latest bike that is a BH with full Campy 11 with carbon wheels that weighs 14 lbs, but it was towards my bike! haha. Mike didn't like that much I don't think. I really like riding this bike, it's fun and you don't have to shift. I can put it on coast but I think fix will really help. Anyway, I'll stop blabbering.
