Holy Bottom Bracket
Totally forgettable race day today in the Blue Hills. Rain and climbing-should have been a dream day, but I of course continued my string of bad luck, hit a pot hole, and my bars dropped down about 2 inches which was not very confidence inspiring. So race over, DNF once again. Billy managed a good result so it wasn't a total waste getting out of bed.
The one memorable thing occurred while lining up at the start. I was behind a kid on a Kuoto KOM. Glance down at his frame and my jaw dropped at the huge bottom bracket-with reinforced gusset. It looks like some BMX head tube. That thing must be stiff.
