Essential Press Fit Bottom Bracket Maintenance Tips

My Felt CX bike came with a press fit BB. I’ve never really liked it. Definitely not as noiseless as a threaded BB. If you have a press fit BB on your bike, then you might want to watch the following video.

NJ Hill Ride II

NJ Hill Ride II

This hilly route has been on my radar for a long time. I don’t climb the hill out of Bloomsbury very often because I find it to be quite tough. Do this loop four times and you’ll have a 213k ride with roughly 14,500 feet of climbing. Click on the map below to see the route at RWGPS.

NJ Hill Ride

If I want a really tough course to ride regarding hills, then I obviously will want to drive up to Washington, NJ and park my car at Roaring Rock Park. There is a 34-mile route there that is quite hilly which includes the infamous Fiddlers Elbow climb. Do the 34 miles four times and you’ll complete a 217k ride with just shy of 15,000 feet of climbing. Click on the map below to see the 34-mile route at RWGPS.

It’s nice to have a second hilly route close to home. Riding the same route over and over again would definitely get boring. The following route if done three times back to back will amount to a 200k ride having 11,000 feet of climbing. Click on the map to see the route in more detail at RWGPS.

I’m in the process of changing the cranks on my CX bike. Currently the smallest chainring on it is a 34. The new cranks will have either a 22 or a 24 for its smallest chainring. It will soon be set up to handle unlimited hills. So I designed a local hilly route especially for it. The route is 70 miles with 5,400 feet of elevation gain. Some of the roads are unpaved. Do it twice in a day and you’ll have done a 227k ride with just shy of 11,000 feet of climbing. Click on the map below to see the route in more detail at RWGPS.
