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

Rotisserie chicken/beer can chicken or even grilled marinated boneless skinless chicken breast is delicious in my opinion. I enjoy a steak as well.

I also support the vegetarian diet as well - lowers demand and I save in the end. Win-win!
I don't, but no, my point was about how whenever, in the real world, someone tells me chicken is excellent it turns out that they mean fried or barbecued chicken.

And yes, people can have different taste. Doesn't hurt me any when someone has fried chicken, but everyone seeming to have trouble understanding what I'm saying has me in a "what's this thread about" mood.'

In other news, wondering now if I should hold off on the fancy gravel bike for a year to see if the new DA changes anything. Can get an alloy Topstone in the meantime if I get the real hankering to have something to bang around.

Shouldn't we be talking about cheese pizzas if we're going with your beige analogy? Cheese pizza might not be a first choice for many, but no one turns their nose up at a good one.

But yeah, unconventional pizzas. *Sigh.* I think that they're more likely to be ordered in a group because people want to try it but don't want to be committed to finished the damned thing by themselves. For instance, there's a place by me that sells a Korean beef pizza with kimchi - I was happy to have a piece, but I'm not making that my whole meal. That's the opposite of beige, though. That's chartreuse, or something.

I did a quick service (clean and re-grease) on a set of Crank Brothers the other day.

Are you still thinking steel, possibly custom? If so, why not get that rolling and see what shakes out with the groupsets in the meantime?

That’s the same problem I have with sushi . . . I mean, without all the sauces almost all that raw fish tastes like crap. Cook mine please.

Wait, this is what the pedal looks like. What makes the axle/pedal loose? Is something worn out? I don't get it.

Smart money says new DA will be 12 speed. Not sure about anything else. I would not mind wireless shifters but that’s less likely.

Whoa, one thing I just noticed is that the "wear plates" are shot, though I don't see where they're supposed to screw in, as shown in above video.

Well but that's part of it - if I'm going to drop that kind of money on something, I don't want to discover that the spacing or routing requirements are about to change. Like the ill-fated P4, where Cervelo said "look at our awesome super-fast, super-narrow tri bike" in the same year that Hed and Zipp said "look at our awesome wider wheels". I have done some chatting with Gianluca Barco about that XCr Aspero. And part of me thinks I should stay USA and go with Rock Lobster, which would also be cheaper (but no stainless, which seems excellent for gravel, and then I'd have to make a color choice...).

I really hate decisions, in case y'all haven't noticed. An Intel-style roadmao would help.

Yes. And if that means I go 1x, that's interesting, and they could do semi-wireless by doing a battery to the derailleurs but no the shifters, which simplifies routing. Will they change to microspline? Will spacing change? Dammit I'd like to be able to plan; don't they know some of us need to know everything?

Sort of. I wish we had known we'd be WFH for the foreseeable future and just not moved in the first place. The new windows should arrive in a couple of weeks and then I should be able to relax a bit more, if they do kill off the neighborhood noise.
