    Arrow So, um, like, yeah...

    Anyone have a good flat or rolly, not to heavily trafficked road route mapped out near the city? Hills are OK, but I will only have one 48x19 gear so just something reasonable. I wouldn't mind trying longer, sustained hills that are not insane steep. Something decently safe at nite would be good too. Post if you know of anything. Tanx.

    Toonces,

    620 is generally pretty flat up by where I live, but as you get down towards 183, traffic picks up. If you want we can start at my house, head down 620, and pop into some of the neighborhoods along the way like where Technikal lives and around Anderson Mill / El Salido.

    If you go the other way out towards the dam it starts rolling more.

    T, I often ride the Shoal Creek Loop - as it is nice and flat - no hills. I will often do some interval work on this loop as well, as there is a big square you can do near Shoal Creek and Anderson Mill. I apologize I do not have street names for ya ... will you be riding from your place, or driving to the ride?

    You bastards need to stay the hell out of my 'hood.

    Anderson Mill road sucks - there's no shoulder, lots of traffic - including lots of big construction trucks, tons of pot holes, blind turns and folks drive about 50% over the posted speed limit. You're better off heading down 620 past Anderson Mill and hanging a right onto El Salido Parkway. Or, hang a left onto El Salido and you can take that all the way out to 1431. Take a couple of turns and you end up in Leander - all of it pretty flat without too much trafic and decent roads.

    Sounds good, 853. I got my brake today so I can put that on and do a sloppy rewrap and I'll be good to go by the end of the week.

    Bigredshaggytthainsnaoone, is this loop around the Shoal Creek/Far West/Anderson Lane area? I used to ride up and down that street like everyday sometimes into downtown from Far West and do recall that it is fairly flat with a bike lane. I'd have to drive there likely as getting out of my neighborhood on a bike would be death (I live in the little nook between 183/290/I-35).

    I plan on taggin your garage, Technikal.

    Yep, that is the one ... and we sorda live near eachother ... my place is on 53rd & Bennet - between the old Holiday House on Airport and I-35 ... I typically take North Loop over to Shaol Creek ... sometimes I'll drop down the Far Weat Hill or the Mesa hill ... but that would suck on a fixed!

    I'm from the East side, holmes. So you best be ready to brace yo'self.

    Dang, flashbacks to my teenage years

    853 dude. I got the wrong kinda brake. Does Nelo's happen to stock a lot of small parts? If so, I may head down there during lunch and see if they can supply me wiht the bolts I need plus the cables and stuff. Either way, tho, I'll still be up for a ride on friday after work, brakes or no.

    Whoever caps the other first - I'll buy the winner a trip to the dentist for some gold teeth.

    Toonces, the shop looked pretty small, but they had a weird part I needed for a shifter. I would for sure try them out, they were pretty cool in there and I'm sure would love to check out the Pista.
