Asylum Meuse

I’m proudly racing this sub 16-lb Asylum Meuse and am even earning the occasional podium in the MFG series race and at STARCROSSED. I was reluctant to get disk brake bike as it would make my tubular wheel sets obsolete.  However, after the first couple races this season, I’ve concluded the cost and weight of a disk brake bike is worth every dollar and every gram. I wanted hydraulics, 1x10 gearing but didn’t’ want to break the bank so I bought TRP’s Hylex single speed brakes, a used Ultegra DI2…See More

"Hi Erik - I had the same concern so I practiced starts over and over and over (seriosly, lots of reps) and now I nail the entry every time. Practice is cheaper than new pedals. Good luck."

"The first gear arrived and looks great and thanks to Molly's laundry tips, the white came out sparkling clean after a  particularly muddy weekend race. The pictures at the bottom were taken after washing.  "

Gob Bluth Stripper Pants for Cyclocross

Hello CXers,Like many racers, I really like using tights and leg warmers before a race but struggle when pulling them off over my shoes, especially while crowded on the starting grid.  So, I'm having Sommerville Sports add zip off tights to their catalog for my next skinsuit group buy.  The pants will not have The Algea Velo logo, just the HUP HUP nod to Belgian awesomeness on the back panel.  Right now, the order isn't scheduled to arrive until December, but I think if there’s enough interest…See More

Hi, I'm interested in the clothing order but I'm not able to get a hold of you through the email link, maybe because I don't have the right gmail account(?).  I was wondering what the brand will be and how I pay up.  It'll be great to race in something besides a team kit from a team I raced for 8 years ago!

thank, Mike Ph              michaelphernetton@sbcglobal.net
