Addiction LXXIX

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt 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.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Did you see a seven layer burrito while you were there?

Here are some crabon questions for the experts: My FD cable is getting sticky in its little groove under the BB on the R3. A. Will sleeving it with housing liner prevent this and 2. is it sticking because it’s sawing through the guide? It does improve with a schpritz of dry lube and I think it’s just road schmutz.

I removed about 200ml of fluid from my front wheel. I put in ~50ml worth of sealant a couple weeks ago.

Itís true what they say: itís not the heat, itís the humidity.
When it's hot I go through 3-4 bottles in 40 miles.

I had some digestive tract issues last night, so I was probably under hydrated to begin with. And have always been a Patrick Ewing type sweater. Still, I feel like my tolerance for this type of weather is declining.

This is normal as we get older.

I had an aluminum one that did. It needed a brake (break) on it, because using dough to stop it was not a good idea. I also had a wooden one with bearings, but it didn't have as much mass to slow down, and that was my favorite. Course, my dough board was 4'x6' and those little home rollers didn't cut it.
