Addiction 2021.1

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

I don't remember who mentioned low spoke count wheels but our tandem has 20°F and 24°R.

Raise your hands if you've done a bicycle activity wearing a suit.

Boo hoo, but it's nice being able look up and not having the natural discs above and below destroyed by fusions.

BITD tandems had 36F40R. Likely overbuilt.

I recall my first "real" road bike had 32H F/R which I thought was hot stuff compared to the default 36H.

Our first 4 tandems had 48°R and 40°F. My early ‘80s TT wheels were 28°, racing were 32° and training were 36°, all tubular, Cotton for training and silk for racing.

We did stage race our tandem a couple times and used 36° road wheels. They only made it through about 5 races each and when they broke, they broke 3-4 spokes at a time. Luckily, we never crashed but a wheel did collapse just past the line of a TT once.
