While I am excited to experience my newly rebuilt Zipp 101 on the road sans loose spokes, I was content to jam on the trainer for a solid hour on Friday, and again, for another solid hour, on Sunday.
On the Jamis Quest, which is the bike I have mounted on the trainer, the Bebop cleats refuse to remain connected to the on the left side for the first 20 minutes or so.
Once I have warmed up, apparently so have the cleats, and all becomes well locked and running smoothly.
The basement is unheated and uninsulated. I was bundled up to start. I shed the outer long sleeve once I was warmed up, and eventually I recognized the need to engage the use of the fan.
I use a device called the Tranzport, by Frontier Design, to remotely control iTunes radio on my laptop, including jumping forward past songs I don’t want to hear, and to adjust the volume with a nice big knob. Very convenient.
