Avid cyclist and weightlifter, 30 yr old male. Got into cycling when covid hit and have been at it ever since! I've competed in 5 gran Fondos now, including the National Championship in Asheville this year. I ride roughly 10-15 hrs per week on the bike and am at 9,300 miles and 410K ft in the year 2021. I've got an SB20 and used a Gen 3 stages L crank for a while and b have always recommended them to other cyclists, many whom have followed my suggestion. I mainly do A group long training rides on the weekends (50-100 miles) and Zwift during the week. Next year a buddy and I are going to train for the RAAM in 2023. Longest ride Werth him was this weekend, 142 mi and 9500 ft in 8 hours.
