36.73 mi in 02:12:00 hours at 16.70 mi/h on Trek 5500 OCLV USPS. [Cycling] 50, 70 degrees. Felt like the temperature dropped close to 10 degrees on Nashville Rd--could have used arm warmers and even long-fingered gloves. Had to leave a bit early for a meeting and was really close to needing lights. (9)

Gave up on the compact crank and installed an aluminum Chorus double with a 39-52 and the correct front derailleur. Good riddance to compact cranks.

Just a note that the bike, complete with DA 7700 series 9-spd, was $3300 in 1998. http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/BikeSpecs.aspx?year=1998&brand=Trek&model=5500

Installed a used FSA carbon compact crankset with new Sinz ISIS BB. Not sure if this is a good plan, as I haven't liked compact gearing in the past, but I wanted to run 12-23 cassettes and a 39x23 is just not low enough for the climbs I want to do with this bike. The crankset turned out to be less than a good buy, as the BB that arrived with it was rough.
