Day 6 of 30 days of biking. Rode to work this morning on the Qball. A little cold, around 30 degrees which called for the lobsters but I should have rode with my regular riding shoes and over booties. Love riding the Qball this way. My Timbuk2 bag was behaving admirably.
Left the office around 4:15 because there was rain coming and the nice day was rapidly deteriorating. I basically rode with a short sleeve jersey underneath the Windstopper Fleece and I was still pretty hot. However, all the extra clothes from this morning were stuffed into my Timbuk2 and it barely shifted the whole ride. I am really starting to like this bag more and more.
There was a tail wind, combined with riding gears and being able to fly down the hills I got home in nearly record time. The Qball handles so nicely in this configuration. I am actually contemplating putting on a road cassette and going back to a triple. Right now, I basically have a single because it still won't shift into the Granny. Probably need a better front deraileur and a better mechanic.
No need for the light on the way home. In fact not sure I need it on the way in unless I start leaving earlier, which I should start doing.
