My Specialized Venge, my overly pampered carbon fiber baby, has only ever been hooked up to a trainer three times. Once, for three hours so the bike could be fitted to me at the local shop with Specialized’s Body Geometry fitting system. The other two were just for a few minutes each to test cable repairs. Other than that, my Venge has only ever seen the best weather conditions I ride in and paved roads. I’ve been caught out in the rain a few times, but I’ve only ever soaked the bike once.
Actually, if you were able to look up “pampered bicycle” in the dictiona… Well, here:
Anyway, I’ve got the Venge all dialed in and ready to go for the upcoming season and I’m dying to give ‘er a test ride. The weather, sadly, will make doing so stupid. The temp’s okay, but the roads have been wet, nasty and salty for weeks.
That trainer is looking mighty tempting…
