I have had good results from the Trainer Road programs. Worth a look.
 
I would have your LBS use the derailleur hanger alignment tool to verify that your hanger is straight vs just seeing if it is flat. The 3(ish) feet of extension that comes off...

That should make for a good Xmas as long as they don't get snow.

With a cold front moving into Boulder I headed south to check out a trail I had never ridden before. While not obviously technically demanding the long miles of uphill and pea gravel...
Yikes Jeff, that's intense! Certainly nothing close to what I've had to deal with.

Do YOU want to race? I think that's the only question that needs to be answered here.
