Long weekend for us as it's school holidays and I took the bike down with me to Victor Harbour. Sunday ride I was supposed to get rain but it was only 1 minute of light drizzle during a 2hr gravel loop, then yesterday nearly 18 degrees and perfect conditions for a flat 90min cruise along the shore with some light gravel paths thrown in. Keep in mind this is the middle of winter for me.
What @edscoble said. My soma is higher up front, flared bars, but I use the drops for descending rattly gravel and control, not to get aero so much.
Oh, I mean crossing over half way up, just before the apex of the turn basically
I got a 50% success rate on that one. Best line for me so far is to start on the inside, then half way up switch to the outer left side where it's smooth, then all the way up. 180bpm kindo moment though, every time.
Did you ride up the big dipper?
You can never regret chambers. So good! Been a while since I've done it actually.
One of them towers had a broken elevator for ages ... how that is possible in a world post grenfell towers is beyond me.
I have an Ng eco and use it on the road no problems.had it mounted on the gravel rig for a while and twice managed to knock the cover off somehow. Luckily found it both times a few meters back. The pins that hold the cover snapping off is what messed up @skinny if I recall right. It's deffo the design's Achilles heel of an otherwise super reliable unit for me.
What about the battery seal on the Ng Vs Ng eco? Is that the main hardware diff? Ng is usb rechargeable while Ng eco has coin battery under somewhat flimsy cover. Exactly what @skinny had problems with.
I score a lot deeper than that. Started using a sharp serrated bread knife for it.
