It’s nearly 2 am and I’m pretty beat. Another day where time seemed to get away. I realized yesterday that I wasn’t going to have any luck getting longer wires for the Di2 I was putting on my cross bike. I decided that I couldn’t drive 3 or 4 hours to a race without that bike, so I spent most of the night spicing the existing wires and adding length to both the rear derailleur wire and the wire from the shifters to the bottom bracket.
It really didn’t take all that long, I watched a movie with some friends in the middle of it. I have to admit that it turned out great. Each Shimano wire only had two small wires. I had to go over to “The Shack” and get some shrink fit tubes to cover the soldering unions, but other than that, it was pretty quick and simple. I added 8 cm to the chain stay wire and 15 cm to the common wire to the union box.
Eventually, my bike is going to be all internally routed. I don’t have the correct seat tube battery or that is what I’d be doing now. Anyway, I didn’t get my bike back together, so I’m skipping the race tomorrow in Iowa and riding with the group from my house at noon. That is, if, I get my bike back together before then. It is supposed to be near 70 tomorrow, but it might be raining. That would be a drag. I’ll see how I feel and how the rest of the day goes before I decide about driving to Tulsa to race on Sunday. It is supposed to in the upper 70’s on Sunday there, which would seem pretty hot racing cross.
Okay, I’m heading to bed. Sorry about the lame post, but that is pretty much all I did today.
