Ride to Work with Me!

In response to overwhelming public apathy, I made another video this evening! I was too tired to do anything physical anyway, having taken a REALLY nice, long uni spin earlier in the day.
So, here are a few nice Seattle scenes from last Saturday's ride to the office (..shhh...don't tell my boss about the extra indoor mileage).

My current record for one complete round on our floor with the 36" is one minute (18km/h max).
I'm trying to improve that time next sunday. With fewer co-workers wandering around i may be able to ride faster through corners. Unfortuntately the sleeping rooms for our air traffic controllers are on the same floor so i have to be extra cautious in the fastest part of the corridor.

Greetings

What Kiwi said. What I liked, particularly early on was the frame angle, almost as if it was a production with a bigger budget. Later on you got the camera pole in frame more often.

Hope you don't have security cameras... That could be a very awkward conversation!

"...CAUTION: objects may appear faster than they are."
...actually, I'm still in full weenie mode on the 150's, but I hold 11-12 mph on the flats and make up time on the climbs. I can sprint to 14 mph, but only for a couple seconds, and it's scary.

Lake Sammy sounds great! I PM'ed you. --cheers.

Great vid--looks like lots of places to hop about along the way--life is short, never forget to stop and hop.

That is a good one. BTW what happened to the brakes, empty brackets?
Thanks.

Oops...haven't read the board in a couple days. Blizzard released a major patch for Diablo 3, and I'm only now coming up for air...hahahaha (sad, I know).
Anyway, the nice guy at Serious Juggling in Portland, OR, set up the KH for me, and he installed the brackets in anticipation of my adding brakes at some point. I prolly should add 'em, but just haven't gotten around to it.

Thanks for reminding me to look into it. hey btw: Is there a quick, easy way to just order a disk setup for this uni? I'm really not looking for an ambitious DIY project; I just want to lazily throw money at the problem. Can I give my bike shop a parts list? Or, do the UDC monopolists have an out-of-the-box solution? Either way works for me.

Thanks very for any input!
