Addiction LXXVIII

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

When you "dial it back" is that the same dial that has "400w"?

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

Apparently the garden bamboo that invades like crazy around here is useless as a structural material. We need to import some pandas.

I'm not a fan either. Never had it on any of my bikes, but I've wrapped plenty down at the shop. My least favorite tape to install.

Was just invited to a touch football game with a bunch of elderly men this weekend.
It was an April Fool's prank. Not even the two-hand emphasis hipped me and I got all huffy. Such a chump. At least I was the occasion for some amusement.

I used to be able to click on a link and the picture would show up here or wherever I put it. Now, the best I can do is place the link, not the picture.
