I need to take Miguel out in a few minutes...I'm a bit scared.<br><br>
|He's a lot of bike...new fit, new feel, less control...<br><br>
I'm going out for 2 hours...<br><br>
Coming back...my crazy friend (not psycho!) is coming for a 3 hour ride...<br><br>
That's 5 hours on a new bike...hard saddle. They ordered me another Terry Ti<br><br>
So...I guess I'm so nervous b/c I never CRASHED on Mikey...not even at a stop sign! Tithers is a little terrified of taking her first spill!

Body glide doesn't help much when your vajayjay bits are smooshed and get nerve damage!

You could bring mikey for this one? 5 hrs is a long time and you're gonna need those bits eventually <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
But Miguel looks sooooo nice I don't blame ya for wanted to go for it!

I agree with Ella. 5 hrs on the first ride for a tri bike is too much. It took me almost a month to get used to aero and to learn how to control the bike in that position.

I took him out for an hour...no probs...<br><br>
My friend is almost here...so I'll be doing 3 extra to make 4 instead of 5.<br><br>
All went well first ride.<br><br>
Mikey has no pedals...I don't have a pedal wrench

You mean a #8 allen wrench? I bet you have one. Most multi-function cycling tools include one for that very reason.

I think she means one of these:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://images.ems.com/media/images/products/210/21023/2102307/210230766/210230766_200.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
You can get the job done with a good crescent wrench, but the right tool does make it much easier.<br><br>
Are there some pedals that go on with an allen wrench? <img alt="confused.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/confused.gif">

I think he meant tightening it for the cleats to clip in/out?<br><br>
