I installed an adjustable stem to lower my aero bars even further. I felt I was sitting a bit too high with my old stem. Since I am fitter now than opening weekend, the core is stronger and the belly is not so much a problem, I can therefore lower the bars into a more aerodynamic position. Also this position allows me to slide forward on the seat into a more powerful position when I need to gain some extra leverage during the last lap of a Kilo.
I am aiming to beat my best time of 1:19.98, so any tweaks will help. The 1:19.98 was done at TTown in a 108" gear (52x13) which felt good but was difficult to get going from a standing start. I am therefore going to switch to using a 96" (50x14). I am still discovering new things about my abilities, learning new techniques and the feel of different gear ratios. The cumulative effort of training and experience will definitely lead to a better time. The learning curve is steep and just when you think you have every base covered something new comes along to make you rethink your plan.
Today is the day for the States Kilo but I decided not to go since it was raining as of 2pm in Queens, with a 100% chance of further precipitation for late afternoon. The temperature is hovering around 70F, not ideal conditions for track time trials.
