Day Two: 10KM. I got my Surly equipped with some clipless Shimano pedals today and picked up my shoes. I got cleats put in them and also had my shop put an odometer (speed computer). Had a bit of rain yesterday to put the fenders to test, but other than that I got about 10km in. Had a ride down the cheongyecheon and was averaging about 35km/h with a head wind. Not too bad, but I had nothing loading on my racks. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at the clipless pedals, this is my first time riding on something other than platforms, and my pedal power has increased immensely. Pedaling un-attached I averaged about 28km/h, clipped in I was at 35.
Have a look at the Surly Long Haul Trucker’s numerous brazeons for connecting my racks and fenders. Four used and 2 more leftover!
