They are very similar. I haven’t measured them so I can’t be sure. The main difference in the build is that we’re on new bars this year. Thanks for reading.
Maybe something like an All-City nature boy? It’s cheap. Has fender mounts. You could race it. 
I suspect you’re not paying attention. 
Negative.

Jam Fund Camp day 2. We got after it really hard today. 

This team is doing great things for young talented riders in New England.

Follow their brand new Instagram account! 

Britt and I are crashing the Jam Fun team camp this weekend. 

If you need me I’ll be in my basement huffing Mastik One for the next week.

Having no idea what you’re doing is good. Without doing any research whatsoever you should just go do the thing you want to do. If that means buying a Van Dessel Hellafaster and getting a racing license then that’s totally the rabbit hole I recommend. 
Something made by Verge. They were pretty sweet. 
There is weekly stuff on Randalls Island every Wednesday in NYC. A few other things I think as well. 
LOL

I met Rich Roat about ten years ago and we stayed friends. From that point forward, I followed House Industries by way of their ever-changing website and became a fan of their style. Coincidentally, the alliance became a formal one in 2009 when the company came onboard as a sponsor of the Richard Sachs Cyclocross Team. From that alliance, I got up the nerve to ask them for some design work. I was producing my Piccoli Gioilli cast dropouts and needed a way to get my name patched into the art files we were sending to the casting house in Taiwan. They wrapped the twelve letters perfectly around the raised area where the skewers interface with the dropout. It’s clearly there to enjoy when you look at a finished frame, but covered up when the wheel is in and the bicycle’s assembled. Whatever.
Roughly two years ago a long and nagging anxiety I was feeling bubbled over. I woke up one day and said to myself, “Self, I am sick of the red and white thing atmo.” I had been painting the frames some version of these colors since 1982. There were countless combinations of shades, and hues, and toners, and whites, and ink changes, and also several graphic design edits too. But essentially, from a distance, these were all red and white. I took it as far as I could. In the last few seasons little had changed, and I was convinced that this was the end of the line. I contacted Rich, asked him if House Industries could do a job for me (I didn’t mention the project at this point), and waited for a reply.
The task was this: change it. Change one little thing, change all of it, start from scratch, or simply wave a wand and somehow make me like what I already have. Anything. Just find a way to transform it into whatever’s next. Almost twenty months passed between that initial call and the finished concepts (the current saffron and off-white schemes with House Industries Neutraface font used for my name…). They did a perfect job. I didn’t see any of the intermediate sketches, and have no idea how many ideas never made it before the final one was selected, and I wouldn’t change a thing. I couldn’t be any happier with the aesthetic than I am now.
The re-skin of the bicycle led to a stronger alliance between us all, and they took on the team kits, some accessories, and the design and branding has continued on.

I’m doing indoor cross workouts this september with EnduranceWERX. It will be painful but we’ll also get to watch some euro cross. I’ll stick around afterwards to chat about all things cross including the upcoming races that weekend and obviously tire pressure. You can sign up here.

Thank you! Richie and House deserve all the credit. We just get to pedal what they create. 
20 min intervals are pretty standard. Like 3x20 as a work out with limited rest in between. Long tempo riders don’t really work threshold. 
Rest. You gotta give your body the proper amount of rest and stay on top of your nutrition. When you run your self ragged that’s when you get sick. Once you’re actually sick there is nothing to do but stay of the bike for a few days until you’re 100% better. Rushing your recovery time is the worst thing you can do.
Last year I raced with an Edge 705 mounted on my stem. This year I’ll use an Edge 500 in the same spot. All my CX races are on strava.
