Addiction LXXVII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Had to run into the garage for a second and took a quick look at the bike, I have it hanging on the wall, so the rear derailer is eye level. Looks like it’s not centered.

I live right by KPHF, and ATAC operates out of there. They have a fleet a Mirages, and a bout 3 hawker hunters that play war games with langley and oceana. They used to have 2 saab drakens and those things would make my inards shake. The hunters are pretty loud too.

I don't know but in recent months I've had minor skin flaking on my face and I think it's witchdoctory related.

Can you use a 9-speed cassette on a 10-speed setup?

I'm thinking of leading an anti-gear inflation revolution. It's ridiculous. I don't even need the 10 I have.

Only in the wide wonderful world of friction shifting.

Or supposedly you can use 10 speed Campagnolo shifters with 9 speed Shimano derailleur and cassette with some clever cable routing.

We're all using SI units even if we pretend we aren't...

The
mile is an English unit of length of linear measure equal to 5,280 feet, or 1,760 yards, and standardized as exactly 1,609.344 metres by international agreement in 1959.
